Bowling Scores 2-28-06

180, 190, 203 573 Series

Damn I saw a lot of 7-10 splits tonight! I only left one but it was at least 5 maybe more. Our team won 2 of 3 games and took total pins. (5-2 on the night) I won the second game for us as I converted a 10 pin.
Not a great night but going into Week 28 of the season I had a 201.6 average so I think My average will drop again but not below 200.

Not a memorable night either... Hmm.... yeah the only thing I can say is the 9th frame killed me this week as I left splits and opened in the 9th all 3 games. I had a few runs of XXX in a row but nothing better.
Nothing left to do now but bowl well next week and then get ready for the playoffs in 2 weeks.

It's few and far between "G" rated movies in the theaters these days. "Doogal" the third release from the Weinstein film company brings together a dog that has a love for candy that gets him in trouble as it releases an evil ice wizard who freezes the entire town including his best friend and owner inside a carosel.

Doogal and his friends then go on an adventure as they attempt to save the city and release his friends. If your looking for a movie to bring your kids to this would be it. They also attempt to break records for most puns/movie cliches in a 90 minute time period. Oh and the highlight of screening this one?.... They through out a "BOOYA!" halfway through the movie.

Top 3 averages going into the night:

1. Matt- 209.5
2. Duffy J- 200.8
3. David- 190.7

"I'm not dropping below 200 dammit!"
Theme of the night: 10 Pin

First shot of the night was a perfect hit and I leave a 10 pin. The first of 8 on the night. Second Frame in another perfect pocket hit and a solid 8 pin remains! Is this how the night is going to go? On top of that I miss the single pin spare in the second frame. It was one of only two open frames the entire night! Yes my friends, I converted 8 of 8 ten pins on the night and I struggled to find my line the first game but then towards the end of the first game I got it going. My dad ended the first game with a 202. I tell him he's gonna get dominated as I predict a 203 before the 1st ball of the 10th frame. XXX as I hold true to my word and beat him by one pin.

The second game went smoothly and honestly I didn't throw a bad ball until the 10th frame of the second game where I shanked a shot and left a 3-10 split. I couldn't convert and opened in the 10th for a 225.

The third game again went very smoothly. I had XXXX in a row and then guess what? yep another 10 pin leave in the 10th. Converted and then a X to end with a 238.
We won 2 of 3 games putting us at 105-84 on the year. The playoffs roll closer and we're already guarenteed a spot from our win of the first third.
I gained some ground on Matt as his knee was shot and he was bowling crippled the entire night. Hey! I gotta take my pins where I can get them!

So If you want 2.5 hours of your life taken from you, go see Freedomland. It was a pile of garbage. Unless your a huge fan of The Forgotten but let's say it's like The Forgotten to the extreme. The first 45 minutes are so over dramatized I didn't know what the hell was going on. Then towards the middle and the end of the film there are close-ups of Juliette Moore "Crazy Psycho Lady" busting about her 5 year old child for a good 30 minutes to Samuel Jackson. Throw in some gang beatdowns in the hood as it's the Black vs. White in the projects and it becomes The forgotten with a splash of Crash.
This Movie is Terrible don't waste your time.

Bowling Scores 2-14-06

149, 209, 223 581 Series

3 people tied for high game last week with a 248.

Average going into the night 201.1


Will I never learn. I got frustrated early on and basically threw the first game which didn't help my series any. Until I can control this stupid anger, I will remain inconsistent.

Second game I cooled off and threw a good number of XXX's but I opened in the 5th and 6th frame. I finished strong though with a 209.

Third game was a no-tap 300 until my second shot in the tenth frame where I decided to leave a 3-4-6-7-10 split and then proceed to throw my ball in the gutter unintentionally. Ending with a 223.
Well, I know my average is not going to drop below 200. So that is one of my goals right now... keep it above 200. I would say 26 weeks into the league, to maintain a 200 is pretty damn good.
Now, If only I bowled with my own equipment instead of borrowed bowling balls that I just put new fingertips in. How much could I improve?

Bowling Scores 2-7-06

248, 171, 209 628 Series

Average going into the night: 200.7

It was good to get a six for the first time in weeks. Also maintaining my 200 average for at least another week.

The First game was great, I ended with eight in a row and tied Matt with a 248.

Second game was not a bad game, I just kept getting 9 counts and then left a split somewhere in the middle of the game.
Third game could have been better. I couldn't convert a bucket (2-4-5-8) in the eighth frame and ended up with a 209.

Our team only won 1 game this week and we have been on a slide as of late. That's ok though because like I said before, we are already guarenteed a spot in the playoffs come March. We won the first third of the season.
