Sky's voice of Darts has lost his battle with bowel cancer.

He used to drive me mad with his constant Phil love, but he did have some classic lines.
quote:


When Alexander of Macedonia was 33, he cried salt tears because there were no more worlds to conquer Bristow's only 27."

quote:


"We couldn't have more excitement if Elvis walked in and asked for a chip sandwich

quote:


'Cliff Lazarenko's idea of exercise is a strong pull on a soda siphon

quote:


'When Lowe gets back to Clay Cross there'll be a reception like Ayatollah Khomeini had hit town'

quote:


'Jocky Wilson, all the psychology of a claymore.


RIP Sid.

A sad loss. His Bellies and Bullseyes book is a fantastic read

I'm actually shocked by this news. I didn't even know he was ill. His voice was synonymous with darts and he had such passion and slight eccentricity that brought a spark to the game.

Sad news. A comedy genius and a warm, friendly, deeply intelligent bloke to boot.

Not a follower of darts, but I was always a fan of his wordplay.

RIP Sid, you'll be missed by many.
