Well, it took me two days to come to grips with tuesdays results. I just don't know how anyone can have such a good year and bad year going at the same time. I'm heading out in a bit to fire the boat up for the first time this year, don't believe i'll be doing any leagues this summer. I need a rest..

MRI results are in. Good news…it’s not a meniscus tear, just a bone bruise. Go back to the doc on Monday for more details & possibly recovery plan. Not restricted at all, just wear brace for physical activities.

That's Good news Mike. Enough people are getting hurt these days, we don't need to add any more names to that list. As for Dennis, not really much more you could have done. You were a good team mate and hope to bowl with ya again next year.

Now, onto my scores from last night. Had a bit of a rebound night with the scores but still nothing to write to the papers about. 235 first game rolling the Critical Theory. I actually had a pretty nice game going in this one starting out dropping the ball in the first frame leaving a 7 pin but picked it up. Put a piece of tape in and struck the next six frames. I pushed the next one and got a 4-7-6 split. I think i doubled after that but i really am not sure. Anyway, nice 235.

Second game was uneventful as i opened a couple times (maybe 3x) but i decided to drop my thumb position from the 1-2 o'clock down to 10-11. This did give me more skid but i was very conservative with it as i have a history of trying to over due it and hang up in the ball. Overall, i was happy with a 195.

Third game i got a little more aggressive with this release as i got a little more comfortable throwing this way. I did have another couple opens but i could feel something building here. I finished the night with a 213.

I think that was 6 opens and i shot a 640 but for the first time in a while i actually enjoyed the night. I like to "play around" some experamenting and was having fun seeing my ball NOT check up at the arrows throwing this way. I found myself thinking how its actually pretty amazing how a slight hand position change effects ball reaction. While others are focused on scoring and how the teams are doing, this is what drives me with bowling. I really could care less about the scores since they are mostly a result of Execution and Execution can only be repeated if you understand why.

Anyway, since next week is my last week of league (and barring an unexpected rising in the standings) i don't think anyone would mind if i finished our VL up at my local bowling center. Don't expect great scoring here but you never know.

So upset tonight...our team couldn't get anything to fall, opponents got everything to fall. Lost the championship, lost 1st place overall also. 215, 193, 204

Well, 7 opens won't result in much of a score. I just had an off night as i was forcing and pulling most of the time. In the first two games (at the 5th frame) i had unimpressive scores of 65 and 62. It was not very pretty. I was able to regroup and finish those games with 183 and 189. Third game was a 195.

I declined to bowl this summer. That was partly due to my concern that i'm fading some with my energy and need the break. My goal is to come into next fall healthy and ready to go.

So, the season ended on a sour note for me but you guys go get some...
