Bowling Sux

Damnation. Out bowled again. 2-5. Really strange conditions. We had the center pair of lanes, directly across from the front door. And it’s the coldest night of the season, a real record breaker out there. So for almost the first time ever, the alley wasn’t overly warm. I don’t want to get too into it, but the oil was just a frothy mess tonight. It wouldn’t stay put, floating around like it was on ice. Nearly instant breakdown, the edges went bone dry by the end of Game 1, and by the start of Game 3 the back end was frightfully over reactive. And down the middle, all the oil was mounded into two or three thin strips. Hit one and it was slide city, no ball reaction until the last foot or so. Miss one and it was like putting cleats on your ball; watch it catch, dig, and run away from the midlanes. So I guess it became power ball night, just slam the thing down range hard with a bit of spin on, and hope for the best. I came out 2 pins under average for my series for the night, and my last game was 25 over. So it was not a great night for me.

It was a worse night for our team. Or what’s left of it. Mr. Mopey, J, still pining for the ex. Dude, you guys weren’t married. You were just playing Brady Bunch while dating. And I’m sure you were even co-habbing it. And it was over early last summer. Move on already, jeesh. So tonight the ex was bowling in the lanes right next to us. “I dunno if I can take this. I probably won’t be back next year. I hope I can finish this year. I dunno. This is so hard for me.” Friggin great. We already got burned the past 3 weeks with our fill in 4th guy who shat on us. We got burned tonight for the Vacancy, because a vacancy is just a flat score, and never ever a real bowler who you can rely on, or who will pull a miracle out every once in a while. Like our opponents 4th bowler, who threw the best night of her life against us ( of course! ) Now we’ll be down to just the two of us, me and the wife? On this league too? That makes 3 ... 4 ... maybe 5 times this has happened? There aren’t any other leagues we can go to. Damnation, we aren’t anti-social. We have fun. We try to be fun. We’re not snobs. We’re not over competitive. We try so hard to suck it up when things go bad, and not sulk for more than a couple seconds. What more do you want? And yeah, we’re willing to buy the beer, or some wings, or a round of shots. Not every time, but often or more. Mopey J won’t even have a beer. Or a soda or a coffee either. He just sits there. So maybe it will be small loss if he evaporates. But gosh darn, I want an actual team. A team I can rely on. Rely on to actually show up. Every week. To actually bowl. Every week. To actually bowl halfway decently, at least half the time. To pay their dues. Every week. To be a bit social and outgoing. Is that so damn much to ask? 4 people, and we’re providing 2 of them? Horry clap. This sux.

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.
