This is how my league night went down. My series total of 577 was pretty much close to average but the break down of the scores weren't, going 168, 189 and 220 in that order. So I improved each game, while each of the first two games had potential to be better. I had a total of 6 opens on the night, 4 were splits, one a 10 pin and the sixth was chopping 2 pins off of a bucket. That missed bucket was in the tenth frame, and a mark and high count would have won us that game. The second game we lost by around 120 pins and the last game we lost by about 40 to lose all 7 points. That last game 4 of 5 on my team bowled well but we couldn't over come the 88 pins of handicap and several of the opposing team's bowlers bowled well as well.

Calvin, you got me by 1 pin. I rolled a 576 this past Friday. I rolled a 180-203-193. First game, chopped a couple of easy spares, had a brutal break when I left a 3-7 split on a pocket shot in the 8th frame. Yes, you read that right, a 3-7. The 5 pin went down, bounced, stood back up, and slid to the 3 spot. Wasn't even out of range. What can you do? *blink blink*

Second game, whiffed a 10 pin, had an early split, but struck out the last 5 frames, with the last strike being really nice, hit solid, thought I was going to leave a stone 9, and have a messenger kick across to take it out.

Third game, opened up with two splits, switched from the Track 714C to my Brunswick Vapor Zone, pretty much stayed in the pocket for the rest of the game

I decided to get a new ball this week. I had been using a Storm Crossroad since I started bowling again in early January, but it was too strong and too snappy for the shot at my house. My Pro Shop guy made a surface adjustment on the Crossroad that probably would have worked just fine, but the IQ Tour Pearl had caught my eye, and I was pretty set on getting one.

The first night of league with it, I shot 204, 218, 220 for a 642 series. The shot at the house I'm bowling in seems to consistently being right around 5, and this ball is great out there. I'm very happy with it.

That put my average right at 201 after 18 games, and I'm pretty happy with that. The first few weeks were pretty rocky since it took me a while to get any rhythm, but after a lot of practice its coming back.

Tonight's bowling, frame-by-frame (Linked to BowlSK sheet)

I had a pretty decent night tonight, with the second game only single digits under my average. I probably could have had two deuce games in this set, but a ringer robbed me filling the last frame.

Result: 202-170-192=564
Average (72 games): 175
Average for last 9 games: 181
Next week's AVG+1 score: 530

Most of our opponents were around their average most of the night, but the third bowler in their order (the anchor was absent) nearly put up a 700, and we lost all four points.

I continued my roll with my Lights Out. I love this ball. It's a light oil ball that is perfect for me with my strong release. It gets me away from the ball return and the ball isn't jumpy so I stay in the pocket all night.

I subbed last night. 246-227-211. 684 series. 20 strikes. One open. a missed 2 pin in the third game. A 2 pin of all things! I couldn't believe I missed it. I couldn't believe I left it in the first place. No splits. lanes transitioned in the third game big time. Way too busy a line. I changed balls to my Reign of Fire. I jumped over to the 4th arrow and found a nice new unused line. Finished strong. I wanted the clean series. It's been a while since I've done that.

Tonight started out like it could be a pretty good night on the lanes. The full story on Bowlsk. After a small move early in the first game, I rolled a 229, striking on the last 8 shots, and the first of the second game. I then struggled for the next 5 frames, only marking in the second frame, but then had 3 splits and a washout all in row before nearly punching out the last 6, left a 4 pin on the twelfth shot, for a 186. Not a completely bad game all things considered and figured I had things figured out again. Wrong. After throwing 3 more splits in the first 5 frames, some were just terrible shots and others were due to a bit of over/under. I made a ball change and slight move right and was able to go back into the pocket, until the right lane started to read a bit early over the last two frames on that lane, which included the tenth frame. Even my plastic would start to hook up on that lane when going after spares. I ended up with a 144 and a 559 total. I only made 3 of 14 spares. I had 7 splits. Those kind of stats are just score killers even with 19 strikes. On an upside we won all 7 points, and the last game by over 100.

Tonight's bowling, frame-by-frame (Linked to BowlSK sheet)

I threw too many bad first shots, particularly in the first game, but my other two games were enough to get me over my +1. My spare game was strong tonight, as well (80% on makeables, with one split conversion on top of it).

Result: 167-200-186=553
Average (75 games): 176
Average for last 9 games: 178
Next week's AVG+1 score: 583

We split the first two games, with my team having the advantage for total, but two of our opponents, none of whom carried a 150+ average, threw games in the 220s (one as a pre-bowl) in the third game, and that was just too much for us to overcome.

Rough night to start...haven't had that much oil on the lanes in months...shot 172 game one. Needed a mark and good count to win that point and left the big 4. Second game started off just as bad then I borrowed a ball I had sold to someone and threw the last 6 for a 233. Third game could have been better but I made too many mistakes and shot 211. Need to swap out one of my balls for something on the dull side.

The last two weeks in league have been awesome.

3/4/14

Using my Lights Out, first game, Ten pin spare, strike, 4 pin spare, strike to the fill ball. 268.

Front four then a 7-10 split on a pocket shot. Triple then 10 pin in the 9th frame. Another triple for a 243.

Last game 8 strikes, clean game 246. 757 series. One open.

On tuesday, Using my Reign of Fire, clean first game. 8 strikes including the last four to get a 236.

Second game 246, but I had a 6 bagger going into the tenth. I left a 10 pin that I whiffed. I clipped a pin in the gutter that should've been removed.

Last game 4 pin in the 4th frame, 279. 761 series. One open.

I'm loving bowling right now. I can't wait until next tuesday.

I'm too embarrassed to post my scores from tonight. Oh well.

191 with an open 10th and 3 opens in the game, 2 splits.
206 with an open 10th and 3 opens in the game, 2 splits.
139 with an open 10th and 5 opens in the game, 3 splits and 2 washouts.

I felt like my arms were like rubber and very uncoordinated. Don't know why?
