Bowling Scores....

Current mood:pessimistic

The last 2 weeks have been the worst slump of my bowling career. I am physically and mentally drained and I may or may not know why.
sub 500 series' yes sub 500 series' the last 2 weeks. This is not fun and I don't know if I'm having fun anymore. Dax this will pass but right now I feel worthless as a bowler.
161, 154, 147 462 Series
Last Week-
I don't even remember. I salvaged a 198 the third game but the first 2 games I seem to remember being in the 140's.

Late Movie Reviews

Eastern Promises- 8/10 Good Movie. Wicked Sauna Fight Scene towards the end. Naomi Watts plays a good role.

310 to Yuma- 9/10. I didn't quite catch the storyline from the beginning due to there being a giant splotch on the screen from some punk kids probably. Then again these are the things I'm looking for when screening them.

The Brave One- 6/10 Typical Jodie Foster film ala panic room/flight plan. This one's a bit more ruthless at times. Some things just didn't add up for me though.

Yeah... That's the last 3 I've screened in a nutshell.

Bowling Scores 9-11-07

161, 197, 224 582 Series

I got Bowler of the Week for my 256 last week, only because my average was like a 176 after week 1.

9-5 after 2 weeks as apparently we won all games last week even though I couldn't tell cause the handicap wasn't figured in cause someone was absent.

We swept again this week putting us at 18-5 on the season somewhere near the top of the leaderboard. This week was eerily similar to last as I completely sucked it in the first game not putting together anything and then improving each game and finishing strong. Took until the end of the second game for me to leave a 10 pin, which I didn't convert. 3rd game was stronger and I did convert a 10 pin as well as some other spares. Our team has come up with this side game where if you don't strike and the other 3 do, then you have to put $2 into a side pot that will be used to take our team out to dinner at the end of the season. Subconciously I think it's a bit of a distraction from the true focus which should be on getting the W. But whatever. This week I didn't get burned so $0 dollars into the pot from me. I don't know if I'll be so sure next week though... Being the anchor of the team though I control my own destiny...

Bowling Scores 9-4-07

160, 204, 256 620 Series

Enter second week with a 174 average. I couldn't really find a groove, in fact the 1st game was just a continuation of that miserable 145 I rolled last week. Missing single pin spares all night long. Seriously frusterating. Then I just have to tell myself it's early in the season and we went 2-5 last week which means we earned our first win 4 weeks sooner than last season so we are already having a better start than last year.

Second game I strung a few strikes together and managed to get my first 2.

Third Game:

X X X X X X X X 90 X81 256

Apparently Spares are overrated. I missed a 7 pin in the (surprise) ninth frame. I came in high on the headpin and actually glad I didn't leave a split but then couldn't convert a 7 pin! Worthlessly Frusterating.
Don't know how many games we won or lost but my average will be a bit higher next week and hopefully continue to climb back up to the mid 190's which is where I ended last season (197)
Till next week...
