I haven't posted in a while, but been trolling around in the background. last Wednesday I picked up the big 4, I cranked up and threw my spare ball at least 30 miles an hour and popped it out the back and hit the other 2. Which I thought was going to be the highlight of my league year. That was until yesterday, I started the first game with the front 5 and then it fell apart on me and i ended with a 189. I was actually pretty distraught after the first game. the 2nd game i started with the front 5 and was like damn not again. on the 6th frame the head pin scouted over and knocked out the 9 pin. I then hit the 7th 8th and 9th strikes. after each i could see more and more people pointing down towards my lanes and a small crowd forming as i was going up for the 10th frame.
I hit the first 2 strikes and go up for my 3rd i was so nervous the only thing i could think about was not throwing up. I went up and threw and hit the last one.
I've played football, baseball, basketball, and bowl anchor on another league. but never in my life have i ever been that nervous. its a real mind job for and i have no idea how i did it,
I have more respect then ever for anybody that has done it, it's a real feat not to leave the 10 pin or 9 pin in 12 balls.
Just in case your curious i struck the next 2 balls in the 3rd game and then left my first 8 pin out of 80 some odd games this year. I also use the track temper throw about 18-20mph with high revs hitting the arrows around the 18 board out to the 3-5.
a 300 and a big 4 pick up in back to back weeks its been a great 2 weeks.
and i basically just had to tell anybody that would listen.
