I picked up a 6-7-10 split in the second game. We only won one out the three games.

We stayed and bowled a couple practice games on fresh oil afterwards. My first practice game was a 242. I don't know why I couldn't do that when it counted.

I do the same thing and i know it is me thinking to much. you are wanting to do good for league and you are just trying to hard. When i start to do that i will just hold my approach a few extra secs and take a deep breath and just go. not thinking about anything just let the ball roll and that def has helped me.

you may be right about trying too hard. I think it might have something to do with the faster pace of practice. It seems easier to roll strikes when I'm rolling one ball after another instead of roll then wait, roll then wait.

Well I think I bowled to many games today. Got off work at noon today so went out with some friends and shot 5 games, then 3 hours later head to league and threw those 3 more. By the last game I was def slowing down. Still ended with a good series just not 3 good games again (story of my life lol). had a 232, 209, 166 for a 607. Avg over 200 so I will take that.

Happy Thanksgiving to all! My scores this week - 219, 248, 200 for a 667 series. I was thankful to make a good ball change leading into the second game. But, I was stubborn about switching the third game. Still, thankful my team won 5 of 7 points against a tough team, enough to move up a spot in the league standings.

Nice shooting Joe!! not a good week for me, played a team that didnt turn up and i hate that! always seem to play bad. ended up with 178,169,179 for a 526. plenty of splits and misses, but did manage to jag the 6,8,10. missed two 7 pin spares as well. a night to forget! our team just scraped in each game but it was hard going to get the points. Good Luck this week guys, and Happy Thanksgiving to you all:)

back to thoroughly mediocre.

155 139 182

The only interesting thing to report almost made my head explode from frustration. The second game I was left with a 4-7. I lined up like I always do and rolled my plastic ball across the lane. Somehow, I took out the 4 pin and left the 7. Almost impossible at that angle but I did it. Three frames later, another 4-7. I lined up and moved my target one board left to make sure I hit the 7 this time. Yep, I took out the 7 pin and left the 4.

A bipolar week for me. My scores - 214, 257, 197 for a 668 series. Leaving, then missing, three 7 pins did not help, but my team bowled well and we took 7 of 7 points.

The lanes were messed up this week. They had a problem with the machine so everyone was having issues. I started with a great 136 then made a ball change and started to throw straight and hard, i normally throw 15.5 mph and last night i was throwing just under 18. That was the only thing that would keep the ball on the lanes cause it was so dry. 2nd game was good had a 225 then a 189 by the 3rd. Arm was a little tired by the end so fell off a little and split in the 10th so that kept me from breaking 200. right now my avg is 183 so I hit it dead on and my team won 4 out of 5 points so at least it was a win there. So a 550 series is OK for how bad the lanes were.
