Los Diablos ventured into the other division and took on Morningwood (not literally, that was the name of the team!). It was Pat's efforts with a high game of 210 which lead to a career high series of 562 (previous 529) that propelled us to the 5 - 2 victory. Jim also had a stellar evening with a 553 series but appeared to be a little upset by the fact that the guy with the 133 average all last year had beaten him this evening. Jim misdirected his displeasure at Dan, declaring that Dan's nightly position as the 5th bowler was quite appropriate since he had been such an anchor around the team's neck the last few weeks.
Wow...why such anger?
Rick appeared to be burdened with the pressure that goes along with being the team's top bowler (169 avg) and struggled to a sub par 462 series. Like a junkie looking for a quick score, Rick scrounged the alley and willingly accepted a new ball from a large bearded man. Playing with both his balls (is this called "masterbowling"?) Rick just could not get the pins to fall to his satisfaction.
Pat and Dan did enjoy numerous "that's unfortunate" toasts at the other team's expense as they enjoyed yet another successful evening as Los Diablos.
