I'm 6th man on a team on Thursdays. They needed me to bowl last night, so I came in. I'd bowled with them once before with mediocre results.

Anyway, started off the night playing a straighter line in the middle. Lots of oil there, and outside of 8 it gets spotty, so I decided to roll my cell, keep it in the oil, and play the angle off the break point. All my shots were in the pocket, though most were light (hit 'em light and watch 'em fight, I say).

Got down to the 9th frame. I struck and people were almost ignoring me. It's pointless to me to do that, so I made the comment "I've got a 300 going, big deal." But really it was a big deal. I wanted it. I've had the first 9 a few times since July and messed it up. This time it wasn't going to happen.

Got up in the 10th and buried the first shot. Awesome, a 280+ game and probably my highest ever. Second shot was light in the pocket and carried. Final shot was also a bit light, sent the 3 pin into the gutter, the 10 pin wobbled and the 3 reached up, tapped it, and it went over. Done and done.

I started the next game with 5 in a row, for 17 in a row to start. Finished with a 233. Last game was a 223 for a 756 series.

Pretty cool.
