Well, the good news is I had no knee pain when I bowled on Tuesday.

The bad news is that was the only good news.

Threw a 129 in the opening game (averaging 215 right now). And that was with 4 strikes. It was just an unbelievable game. We lost the game by 3 pins.

I have no idea how but I managed a 231 in the second game.

Third game I lost it again and finished with a 15x. I probably whiffed 6 single pin spares on the series, at least. Terrible, terrible night. Gonna head out this weekend to get some practice in.

I've been having a really rough season. Scoring is way down across the house and I just can't figure out the mystery. (I'm leading my league with a 194 average/257 game/680 series...what is this, 1960?)

Anyway, since there hasn't been much activity here lately, I thought I would make a post and hopefully inspire some more posts.

Friday night went OK for me. I went 246, 255 for the first two games, but I couldn't keep it up in the third game and struggled for a 186 and a 687 series. I missed a 10 pin that game (my only non-split miss) and left another split later in that game. I had a few shot that got away, and almost all of them left splits. I think I was beat from shoveling twice on Wednesday and then again Thursday morning because of the storm.

For our team, it was an exciting night. My 246 the first game was 3rd best and we shot 1158 scratch that game. We took all 7 and are tied for first. My teammate that shot the 300 the other week shot his first 800 ever after getting very close many times. I hope it is my turn soon.

Current Average - 225

Wow finally was able to put something together last night. Hopefully it's a slump buster.

We found out the house had changed the oil volume a bit on us when the last third started, which meant I was gonna have the same lousy shot to deal with as I did last week. The oil is just heavy and long, and I was trying to fight it with an aggressive ball on a tight inside line (around 15 board) and just had the smallest margin for error. I also had tried to move way outside and play straight up the 5 but I couldn't get the ball to stay put from that angle, hit the dry too quick. After practice and my first frame (open, whiffed 10 after an ugly flat pocket hit) it appeared that was going to continue.

Luckily, a teammate recommended I switch to my pearl and start inside but shoot for the 5 as my break point. Skid through the oil so it was far enough down lane when it hit the dry and still had all it's energy. Worked like a dream. I had the prettiest, most dependable reaction I've had in a loong time. Missed the pocket on one shot after that the rest of the night. Threw a 236, 221, 231 for a 688 series. Only opens on the night were two whiffed 10 pins, a pocket 7-10 leave (had the front 6 in game 2, this was frame 7, gross), and my one high ball where I left a 3-6-7-10. So I left some pins out there but an encouraging night all around. Hopefully I don't lose it!

My latest bowling, frame-by-frame

I was quite out of sorts on this night, and the other league members noticed. It would turn out that I was in the throes of a health scare, but I'm still amazed I bowled as well as I did, particularly after the first game; there wasn't more than one open frame in those two games, with a double also in both.

Result: 147-191-189=527
Average (69 games): 182
Average for last 9 games: 175
Next week's AVG+1 score: 575

Composite average (147 games): 181

Weirdly, we only won one point, a tie in the first game.

Happy to report that I am feeling better, and hope to return to bowling activity a week from Wednesday night.
