Week 7 - February 13
Emergency services had to be beckoned this week when Mark set the alley on FIRE, increasing his average by over 7 pins! Good thing they were on hand because Brian had to be talked off the ledge when his status as the team's kingpin was thrown into doubt......Jim M. had passed him for the distinction of being the top bowler on the team.
Speaking of Jim M, he became the first Los Diablos to bowl a 500 series (511). Who would have thought fifteen pound blue balls would HELP your bowling!?! This impressive outing put Jim M. as our top average guy by the narrowest of margins. Brian, are you up for a little competition?
Last week's 2-5 showing put our overall record at 17-25 (are we the Cubs or Los Diablos?) and dropped us back to 13th overall going into week 7. Fortunately, week 7 proved to be a very good team effort. For the 2nd week in a row we had our best series (2264 vs 2234) and our high game (783 vs 776). Jim M. led with a 511 series, Dan 456, Mark 446, Brian 434 and Pat "coming in the back door" with a 417.
Some interesting tidbits from the evening: Pat's unusual knack of getting pins to bounce back from behind and knocking down pins he missed on the first pass, Dan's inability to achieve the 4 strike burrito (he had 2 turkeys) and the introduction of a new version of our poker game.
