I love to rant...

In the New York, New Jersey area, there was some big snowstorm which brought about a foot of snow Tuesday night/Wednesday morning. I spent 2 hours and went in late to work yesterday because I had to shovel my driveway and drive into work. I didn't want to miss the chance for league. My arms were dead at the time.

Believe it or not, the primary roads were clear and the secondary roads were not bad. I drove in without problems. Around 6pm I called the bowling center and no league cancellations were announced. I drive in and get to the lanes by 7pm and we discover that the league was cancelled.

I was pretty livid at the time. When the league starts at 8:30pm, that kind of notice was ridiculous. My teammate and I just bowled a few games, but left the center [censored] off. We did see one league playing, but it was a serious/cash league. I spoke to the manager of the bowling center and he agreed. The roads were fine.

Taking the first place prize (15 weeks left) will be that much more sweeter...

I agree with you!

I bowl in a Friday night Vegas league and I organize my entire Friday evening around this league so I can be there. I skip movies, poker with the guys (actually, I put it off until after bowling), etc. so I can be there.

I get a call at 5:00 (just when I get home and just before walking back out to head to the center) saying that one member is sick and the other three don't feel like bowling. . .

Wasted my entire Friday night. . .
