Whatever the reasoning for the change, the team appreciated it as Brian bowled like a man deserving to wear a star upon his chest. Three games all over average (150, 165 and 157) and a very respectable 472 series to overcome our 1st game massacre to win the night 4-3. Jim M. returned to the solid Jim of 2008-2009 with a 550. Dan (439) and Pat (462) put in sub par performances. Mark, fresh off last week's dominating performance that led to the cocky, walking out to the car comment "I told your I was a 160 bowler", finished up with a 390 (that's a 130 average for anyone mathematically challenged).
Two comments regarding the commitment to the team and new ball purchases: 1) After Brian's performance I hope he does not feel he is just fine with his current equipment 2) After our opponent's "What is that, a 12 pound ball?" comment to Mark, I hope he has been quilted into a purchase.
