"This is the great thing about darts," says Pinhead. Nodding to Brown, he searches for an analogy. "That's the No. 22 player in the world. I mean, who's the No. 22 golf player in the world? Davis Love?"

A crowd begins to form. "Davis Love? Bullshit," says one of the guys.

"Naaah. I don't think it's Love, either," agrees another, edging into the circle.

"Whatever," snaps Pinhead. "The point is, you can go to a local tournament and shoot shit with the world's top players."

Yes. Everyone nods. Several begin telling their own stories of brushes with greatness. A vigorous debate ensues.
