The lighthearted 38-year-old even says he goes by the nickname, "Knubbs. That's how everybody knows me actually."




Knubbs? Wouldn't "Nubbs" or "Nubs" be more accurate?

/maybe its Canadian.

"Serous"?

You mean he has a thin, watery constitution?

/if he drinks enough beer, perhaps

Look like fingers to me. Maybe only partial, but still > none.

I played darts with a chick who has only a thumb, index, and middle finger on each hand, but I guess that's all you need.

This kinda makes sense- I would assume having very short partial fingers, if there was no nerve damage, would allow a bit more control.

With his darts. Carefully, of course.

Another activity that Chapman enjoyed before and still after his amputation, is darts. He went through an adjustment period, changed to textured darts, and figured out a successful technique. "Everybody thinks that I, you know, gotta hold it a different way or whatever, but it's like that. And I mean everybody else pushes with fingertips. I just kinda let it fly," the dart whiz said.

Actually, when I stopped pushing with my fingers is when I got better. I started opening my fingers at the top of my arc and let the swing of my arm throw the dart, and it improved my throw. You just let go of that baby like it suddenly caught fire.

Oh god, I forgot about that guy. Wonder what happened with his lawsuit and whether the original dart club was able to get the name back.

Seriously.  They have a picture of him holding a dart in his fingers right under the headline where they claim he has none.  Not that it's not still impressive, especially with the eye, but still yet another example of poor reporting.  Drama is far more important than accuracy.
