Wednesday, May 13: Dear Diary - Darts has always been a bizarre sport, but COVID-19 has scraped every last ounce of weirdness from it.

Live darts is still happening, you see. The players live-video themselves playing at home, call out what they've scored, and then their opponent takes a turn and does the same. People tune in each night to watch two professionals face each other, even if those professionals are on opposite sides of the world from one another as the match is ongoing.

But you need a good broadband connection to play in the video-cast tournament, something two-time World Champion Gary Anderson didn't have, preventing him from taking part up to now.
