Guest author summarizes dismal 2-5 evening
Editor's note: Please enjoy a fresh perspective from guest author, bowler number 4, for the nice (unedited) summary of this past week's efforts. The references at the end have been added for clarification. As always, enjoy.
"Fellow stray diablos,The diablos melt down to a 2-5 night, if it wasn't for Muck's 9 strikes to close out his 256 (?) game we would lost all 7! the subs held there own especially Mark with another strong 500 series. It was a very quiet night without a word about tequila, a Diablo tradition(*). I don't feel number 3(**) is an option, we need to some how bring back the team tequila frame in some format.On the ride back to Naperville Higgs and Prybel wondered what happen to tequila? I believe in the 2nd game, 6th frame a tequila frame occurred.The super subs were at a loss with no tequila, a Diablo tradition(*). Hopefully we can work something out!"
(*)tra·di·tion trəˈdɪʃən/ [truh-dish-uhn] –noun
1. the handing down of statements, beliefs, legends, customs, information, etc., from generation to generation, esp. by word of mouth or by practice: a story that has come down to us by popular tradition.
2. a long-established or inherited way of thinking or acting: The rebellious students wanted to break with tradition.
Editor's note: Los Diablos was formed on 1/3/2007. The long standing "tradition" started this season (although first introduced in concept during the last two weeks of the 2009 season).
(**) throwing additonal money in the poker pot in lieu of a tequilla round (ironically, the only option presented that did not keep the tequilla frame alive)
