RIP Jim Bowen

Pretty sad day. I'm of the age where Bullseye was essential viewing as a kid, and I don't think it's unfair to say that it helped to populate the game beyond what it was outside of the limited TV coverage the sport was getting in the 80's. The comically bad arrows, the hilarious prizes (shame, that speedboat would have been a lot of use in Wolverhampton), the catchphrases, it probably helped to make a name of many of the pros that appeared back in the day. RIP Jim.

Answer to previous question: Dean Winstanley
