So the mens league I bowl on had several teams, from the disbanned scratch league that bowled next to us the last few seasons, join our league. I find it odd how many of them complain, especially since it is a handicap league. Common sense tells me they should know what they were getting into... So the lead off bowler of our opponent last night, sadly I missed his remarks as I was out smoking after the 1st game, has an issue with "how well" we bowled the 1st game. Barely beating them by 10+ pins. I would have loved to see his actions as I just feel like he's a sandbagger himself.

Three of us are 200+ average bowlers, though we're down just under 200 currently, and our last year book averages are clear as day on the standing sheets. The highest game was our anchor at a 224, I had a 214, and still not sure that anyone else even shot over 200 for us. Yet he decides to show his distaste in us beating them, barely... Then two of them bowl lights out the 2nd game, complainer included, and the last game he appears to idle down and barely break 200. I really wanted to give him a piece of my mind lol, especially since he doesn't even bowl with his thumb in the ball. Though I did good and refrained from making an ordeal of it.

Merely ranting, but seriously, why complain? Especially when we only won the 1st game... I shot a whopping 601 with a 198 average coming into the night, our setup guy shot a 640ish (197 avg), and our anchor had a 596 (190 something avg). We're definitely not bowling bad on purpose, we've all got better things to do than let them win. lol
