Wow! So they are showing that lane friction actually raises the grit on a ball, not lowers it. So what would the grit be on my bowling balls that have 20 poway games on them without refinishing? 8000 grit?!

4/20/15 204, 221, 188=613. Too many opens. Could have shot closer to 670 had I covered the easy ones.

A good way to finish the year. I wasn't thinking that way after the first game, but just got locked in after the 1st frame of game 2 throwing 21 of the next 23 for strikes. Started off the 1st pretty well with a double before leaving the infamous 3

Didn't clinch it but we're very close. Win one game this week and we're champions. I know we won't have Fin and he helped get us to this point so let's finish it off for him.

How weird was last week? We won five from "The Big Red One", but still lost a position in the standings. We did move closer to the 50% points won mark, so we can go over it with a good last week. Let's finish this!

champ, have you had any practice on the Open Championship patterns? Went this past weekend to the ITRC in Arlington TX and bowled on both. Had a pretty good luck playing a lot straighter than I typically do. Started on the team pattern at about 8-9 a

If it is true the "Pitch Black" is a "real urethane" then Storm made one of the worst urethane balls ever created. Everyone I know who has one, or has used it, say it is a total fail. The core and coverstock choice was terribly w

I usually draw a line on the lane of my intended ball path. I start from my laydown point and go through the arrows to the breakpoint. I target at the arrows but I look through the arrows at my set up to see my intended breakpoint. I make sure I'm fa

My night on the lanes. I went clean through the whole first game and the second game until the tenth frame when I left a 10 pin when the ball hung onto my thumb at the release. I followed that up by chopping the 6 off of the 6-10 the very next frame
