Like you, Arthur, I've been trolling in the background. Haven't had a whole lot of time to do much of anything but work and look for jobs.
Anyhow, congrats on the 300 and the Big 4 pick.
What caught my attention was the name of the thread. The last two weeks have been good for me. Now, I bowl once a week on Monday night where as of this past Monday I'm holding a 216 average which is in the top 10 of the league, so this is what's even better about the whole thing. Because of the holidays, we took a two week break. We bowled the Monday before Christmas Eve (17th) and just this past Monday. And Dennis, I hope you remember us talking about "clean sets" a while back because it's the theme of my post.
Well, on the 17th, I rolled a clean 680-something series. Left nothing less than an 8 count and went 7 for 7 on 10 pins (been struggling with those this year - about a 85-90% clip which is struggling for me) which was the best part about that night. Then we take 2 weeks off and this past Monday I walked in without picking up a ball since the 17th and roll a clean 704 (248-228-228). So the last 6 games have been without opens with a 2 week layoff.
And that's, I think, the 5th or 6th 700 series I've had in 13 weeks and the 4th clean set this season. I've had only 2 sets under 600 (one was a 4-open 540 series - couldn't double to save my life and the other was a 580-something).
Mind you, I don't call the shot I bowl on difficult, but compared to Georgia, it's cake. If there's less than 2 boards to shoot at each night it's a horrible shot for everyone else. Most night's I have 3-5 to shoot at with a wall. It's sick, actually. Anyhow, just thought I'd toss in my past 2 weeks and hoping next week is much of the same (probably not, but one can hope).
