Won all 4 points last night, and saved my team in the anchor position in 2nd and 3rd game. Things really clicked for me in the 3rd game when I slowed down my ball speed and began striking/sparing at will. Was nice to roll a double and a 9 in the 10th frame of the last game to finish the shut-out smile The team we played was really nice, which is always positive for conversation during play.

Thanks Dennis,
Yes , so far so good. It took me a few games to get to know it..but it seems like a great ball. Real predictable, nice carry. As long as the guy throwing it is doing his job,..the ball does its job. wink

Once I get my grip squared away, which is mainly a thumb pitch issue now, I'll be looking into getting a modern ball, and since my Pro Shop has a few on their shelves I might check out the few LM balls they have. I think the Sting is one, the Black Pearl and I can't remember what other ones. I haven't been in there since May, or maybe early June.

hey all, been a couple weeks since i posted anything. things are going well so far, after the first two weeks of great bowling [by my standards, lol] i had a few off weeks, BUT the off nights are getting better, still managed a tad over last years avg for the 'bad' games.

last week, i was focused again for the most part, started with a 192 [struck in the 9th and punched out the 10th], then tossed a 184- CLEAN [big deal to me], if it weren't for a few cruddy 6 pin count first balls, that would have been a great game, then finished with a 165.

although not up to the caliber of bowling many others here have, i AM seeing improvement in my game, and my bad games are getting better [last week i finally zero'd in on the 10 pin], i still need a ton of work, but it's getting there, and it's fun!

Last week I rolled my ankle at my house and went to the ER. No breaks but lots of pain and different colors. I wrapped it up and rolled 263-170-213 (gutter my last ball). That 263 was my high game of the year until tonight.

Tonight I wrapped the leg (trail leg) and ankle pretty good. The first game was a 235. Next game I had the front 8 and get out of it clean BUT I put side pressure on the bad ankle and almost fell, I struck. I pulled the ball inside and carried Brooklyn on my 1st shot in the 10th. I then went dead flush the next 2 on pure adrenaline for my 2nd league 300 game. THAT is where the good part of the night ends. What ever I did in the 9th of that 300 game killed me the 3rd game. I had nothing but ankle pain and it ended with a split in the 10th. I rolled a horrible 161 game for a 696 series.

Part of me is estatic to have rolled 300 despite the bad ankle and the lucky cross over. The other part is furious at myself for bowling a 161 after a 535 start to the night. I should be able to do that on a bloody stump. Now I get to rest it for next week, I have an MRI this Fri so I hope its nothing serious. What a night!!!!!!!
