We Wrung The Ringers

What, you didn’t think I’d be taking the summer off from bowling league, did you? Hella no!

Ok, so it looks like our 4th guy isn’t going to make it. So our team will be myself, my wife, and our pal Rex from the Monday winter league. Rex’s team was ahead in that league the whole season, but lost the last 2 games to the team full of tactical bowlers (sandbagging wringers) who snuck in, caught up, and clenched the crown right at the finish line. 3 out of 4 folks on that winter league team are on a team on our summer league.

We played them tonight. And they were up to their old tricks, bowling just poorly enough to look like they deserved the 49 pin handicap we had to give them. And then it blew up in their faces. The weather was cool tonight, and on the edge of rain. That tends to make the lane oil stickier or something. Whatever, it turned out to be a great night for me and my wife, and a poor night for them. When they needed to turn it on, and finish the games off with strikes, they just couldn’t do it. And I could.

We took all 3 games handily. By 53, 75, and 89 pins I think. And I had an awesome night, throwing my first 600+ series in ... 250 league games? I can’t remember, but I know I didn’t roll a single 600 all season long in either league. I threw a 660 tonight, well over the expected 483 my average would indicate. By the middle of the 2nd game I was starting to throw poorly. When that happens my hook ball flattens out and just becomes a scewball, because when my arm tires my hand comes out late and tends to go around the ball instead of through it. And of course that means I throw way inside my line. But that inside line screwball went straight to the top of the rack, and I kept right on striking. 1st game was a 224, 2nd was a 216, third game was a 220; more than 175 over average for the series. I’m happy! The Mrs. threw one in the 190s, one a little above average, and one just under. So she had a decent night too. Rex, who is always anchor, needed us to carry him tonight. And we did. Fair is fair; we’re a team and he’s carried us plenty of times in the past.

So we had a good time, and after 3 weeks we’re solidly in 1st place.

Now I’ll get her to study a little more and hit the hay. That test of hers is Thursday at 8am, so she only has a little more time left for the books.

And I was also able to get past the tired bit, just by keeping my head down and making a big slow and low lunge. Be smooth, with a big follow through. And the ball rev up and roll down, and down, and down, and down, and then snap right over to the 1-3 pocket. BOOM!  hee hee, bowling is fun when you don’t screw up!

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.
