absents make the game go faster

Two guys out on my team tonight, neither one pre-bowled so we had to take the 10 pin penalty off their averages and use that as their scores.

One guy absent from our opponent’s team, and he did pre-bowl ... a 141 pin over series. Which gets him one of those pretty lapel pin awards if he doesn’t have one yet.

Right. So we were a bit slow to get going, and lost the first game. Both of us rolled under average, but I wasn’t too much below with a 151. I think we were down about 30 in the wood.

I found the line early in the second game and did my best to be Mr. Machine. After sparing in frames 1 and 2, I started putting the in exactly the right spot, and threw 6 in a row, a 9/, and then X81 in the 10th to just miss the 250 mark with a 248. Which doesn’t suck. At all. And it was enough for us to win by 12, and take a big chunk off our wood deficit. Yeah, but a 248. A 248!! Woo hoo, yay me!

That line didn’t last for all of Game 3, but I took it when I could find it. 4 opens in a row really hurt me, but I got it together and started the strike hammer again, knocking several off to push a dreary 117 in the 7th up to a 195 at the end. Too bad the other side was bowling too, and their absent guy had pre-d a 226 game. On his 162 average. Sweet for them, and they won it and the wood.

So I managed another series just below 600, with another nice spike score over 240 for one, a “thereabouts 200” for another, and a below average warm up game.  I need to warm up more, and I need to find that special line earlier. Because I want that 700 series pin. Oh yes, I want that one bad.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
It's been a long strange trip without you Skipper, but thanks for pointing us in the right direction and giving us a swift kick in the behind to get us going. Keep lookin' down on us, will ya? Thanks.

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
