Double Out - Hitting the double of a number to win a game of '01

I'm sure you're asking wtf darts has to do with Rob. Well, as you know, there's not much these days that I can't link back to Rob. When I got home on Thursday and turned on the TV so I could set my DVR to record Oprah on Friday, the 2010 World Championship of Darts was on. Something immediately caught my eye. You only have to watch the first 10 seconds.
I spy Unicorn. I spy Eclipse. I spy Unicorn England. I spy Whitlock.
So I Googled Unicorn England and found this.
Origins of "The lion and the unicorn" in British history
The Lion and the Unicorn lyrics date from 1603 when King James VI of Scotland became James I of England unifying the Scottish and English kingdoms. The 'Virgin Queen' Elizabeth 1 named the son of Mary Queen of Scots, James, as her heir. The union of the two countries required a new royal coat of arms combining those of England which featured two lions, and Scotland whose coat of arms featured two Unicorns hence "The lion and the unicorn". A compromise was made thus the British coat of arms has one Lion and one Unicorn and the poem about hence "The Lion and the Unicorn" was created.
The picture depicts the Lion (with the crown) and the Unicorn Coat of Arms. The centre of the Arms depicts the lions of England in the first and fourth quarters, the lion of Scotland in the second and the Harp of Ireland in the third quarter. The motto around the centre means: "Evil to him who evil thinks" which relates to the Order of the Garter. The motto at the bottom means: "God and my Right "
The Lion and the Unicorn poem
The lion and the unicorn were fighting for the crown
The lion beat the unicorn all around the town.
Some gave them white bread, and some gave them brown;
Some gave them plum cake and drummed them out of town.
Somehow, "And the lion fell in love with the unicorn" just doesn't sound right. Or does it?
