A 46 year old man from Hull has been thrown off his local darts team for not being fat enough. Eric Doublechin was told last week by team members that they no longer wanted him on their team as he no longer carried the spirit of the game.
In recent weeks Eric had trimmed down to an impressive 16 stone though a healthy diet and morning runs. Eric claimed ‘The fitness regime had me in good shape and my game was improving. I was hitting the doubles when I needed to and my stamina was great but the guys were always slagging me.‘
At the start it seem simple enough but last week the guys ordered Eric off the team stating that they ‘were sick of him and his vegetable shakes and light beer and he was told to sling his hook.’
Eric is now without a team and does not know where to turn.
Billy “The Arrow Prince” Wholestomach captain of the team in a short press conference said that the team stood by their decision. ‘Darts is more than a sport, it is a way of life where you achieve sport greatness at the same time as having some beers and the craic with your mates. Protein shakes are not needed here.’
