Joe, like I was thought by a former teammate, on league nights like this, points over average. Though it's nice to get both. grin

So today we had our first away match, yay I get to bowl on synthetics instead of old wood lanes. Well first game I end up bowling a 140. Wow I have no idea what happened. I had some of the craziest leaves and had huge problems with carry all day. After that I shot 171, 212. Third game wasn't to bad. Second game, I left 4 ten pins in a row on the left lane. I just couldn't figure out what to do to get the ten pin out of there.

Not so good of a day for me, I know I can do way better than that. Especially on synthetics.

Tonight was almost the night for me. Started with 182. Then struck the first 9 and left a light 7 pin in the 10th and ended with a 279. Than finished with a 216...677. I had only had one 650 or higher in my life, now have a 677 and a 720 in the last month. Love the rogue cell and love slowin it down and let it do what's it paid to do!

656 early league and 699 Late league. Overall, pretty normal/solid night.

not league play, but i bowled a game over 200 again after mondays 214 game i bowled, which was also my first 200 game in league.

being a lefty i still had league oil after they got done so i threw some shots in my 2nd game to see how far of an angle i can toss it. while technically shot less than a 100. i wasn't keeping score but more on my release and testing different angles/releases which for the most part didn't work.

after realizing where i should keep it, i bowled a 187 in my 3rd game. left a few 7 pins which are still my kryptonite as a left handed 2 finger bowler.

maybe i am crazy but ever since i evolved from a tropical storm to a black widow pearl to a RG SS and now virtual energy, i have progressively improved in avg and game scores.

I opened with a 4-7-10 split,...and it went down from there. Just a lousy night, did not even hit 500, I am so proud.
There goes the 197 avg., and we lost all points,..such fun.

Well seeing how I can't sleep, I figure I might as well post up tonight's scores. I started a bit rough with a 160. I didn't feel right the first five frames of the first game, but I worked it out. Then I shot 215 and barely missed my beating my old man. It was clean until the tenth and my spare ball fell off the lane at the last minute missing a ten pin. oh well, thems the breaks. But I got him the last game with a 221. thumbsup He ended up with a 650 series and I ended up with 596. Either way the Knapp boys cleaned house...except we ended up spliting the points tonight. Oh well. With 5 opens and four of them being splits...I'm not mad at all. It was a great night.

WooHooStrikes, I'm a fellow thumbless bowler. The key to doing well thumbless is to have a decent bit of speed in your game. I rev the snot out of it but I don't cover as many boards as the typical cranker. I'm always around 18-19 mph. I'd also suggest in the future to purchase smooth rolling equipment.

Nice finish there Demo, way to respond to the slightly lower than expectations (for yourself) first game. Great to finish that well after a beginning where something just feels off.
