Good Bowling Night! Mostly...
Two out of three ain't bad.
So, we had to "pre-bowl" for next week because only one of our team members would be able to show up, and you have to have at least two regulars and one sub to be a legal team. All four of us were able to hook up tonight and hit the alleys.
Sometimes when you go on a different night, and bowl on different lanes that aren't necessarily treated the same way that the league lanes are for that given night, it takes a little while to adjust.
For me, it took the whole first game. I think I got 3 strikes, but ZERO spares and ended up with only a 118.
I started out the second game with 6 strikes, then an open, then 2 more strikes, and an open in the 10th. 8 damn strikes and I only got a 230 thanks to the open frames. If I'd picked up those spares I could've gotten a 260! Nonetheless, I'd gone two full games at this point without picking up a spare. I'm not complaining.. much.. about the 230. It's a fine game.
The third game I actually bowled a "clean game", which means i had no open frames. All strikes and spares. More spares than strikes though, and I ended up with a 207. Again, a fine game. My average is about 174 right now I think, so a 556 series is still a 185 average for the night.
I'll take it!
On a category note, do I date categorize this under "Sports" =)
