For the 2nd week in a row we bowled significantly above our average in 2 of the 3 games yet we only managed to pick up 2 points. We blew away our 790 average in the 1st game with a solid 837 and came back with an 859 in the 3rd game. We had a rock solid effort in the 3rd with our scores ranging from 148 - 194 and all team members bowling at or above average.
Pat, with his weekly Sunday practice sessions now being complemented by hours of nightly WII (sp?) bowling practice, has really reaped benefits of the extra time dedicated to this red neck sport that we enjoy every Tuesday. Pat enjoyed another stellar performance leading to a 557 series (197, 169,185). Rick's 3rd game 194 broke his 2 consecutive games of 167 on the way to a nice 527 series. Jim's 1st game of 178 led the way to a near 500 series (498), while Dan (468) and Brian (409) were in the general neighborhood of their averages but overall had very lukewarm efforts.
The team shirts may be irritating our opponents into the extra incentive of kicking our butts each week but this would just be another lame excuse. Since about December 1st, we have been in a team funk with a very poor record tainting our strong start to the season. Let's remember, this season is a marathon not a sprint.....We are not the best, we are not the WORST...there still is time to finish FIRST!! Any ole' strike will do boys.
