Sid Waddell


Sid Waddell (10 August 1940 – 11 August 2012) was an English sports commentator and television personality. He was nicknamed the "Voice of Darts" due to his fame as a darts commentator, and worked for Granada, Yorkshire, BBC and Sky Sports. Due to his joke telling skills he was also nicknamed the Thief of Bad Gags, firstly by Dave Lanning. He was nominated for two prestigious awards for his work, and published several books. Following his death on 11 August 2012, the day after his 72nd birthday, the decision was made to rename the PDC World Darts Championship trophy the Sid Waddell trophy from 2013. Waddell's funeral was held in Leeds on 22 August 2012. Before Waddell's funeral he was cremated earlier in the day in a private ceremony. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
