Well, I won't bowl this week. I'm in Mexico on vacation. Probably couldn't bowl anyhow, I'm too sun burned. I did find the bowling center down here. But, received a death threat from the wife should I go in. So, the prudent side of me says wait til next week.

The simple fact that I am posting here at 4 am says this is more than fun. It must be an adiction. Guess I'll have to see someone about that. Anyone know of a clinic to handle this?

I'm learning some Spanish while here. So, Buenos Nachos, to all.

Last night sucked. When I didn't have a brain [email protected], I struck. Through the first 2 games, I had 15 of them. Also had 4 opens with only 1 of them being a split. Shot 208, 224, 185. Had 2 splits in the last game too. I missed a 4 pin, a 7 pin, and a 10 pin along with the 3 splits last night. Ugly. When I stayed down on my shots and followed through, I struck. When I didn't, junk. Team wise, we only won the first game (2 points). Lost the second game by 1 pin. Our 5 bowlers put the pressure on them in the 10th. We were down by 100 going in. First bowler (135 average) had 2 strike and high fill. Second bowler (160 average) had a strike and a spare. Third bowler (165 average) had all 3. I had all 3 in the 10th as did our anchor. Pretty good for our team. Their 3rd and 4th opened. Their anchor left a soft 7 and the wind knocked it over. He needed 7 to win and put it through the beak and had a pin fall late to win the game. Souldn't have gotten that far. First place team only took 2 as well so we are still 11 back but now in third.

On the upside, I was voted league Sec./Treas. for next season. Pretty happy about it as is most of the league (except for the 3 people running against me). 2 of them were the previous 2 people in office. Both of them just wanted the check and neither were very good at the job. The other person is a friend of mine and she too just wanted the check. She would have been decent at the job but admitted that she would have asked me a ton of questions every week. I look forward to doing it again. I like doing all of the stats week to week and sending out all of the reports.

Too funny- I think I might of went in and bowled a game with a house ball just to see how dry they were. Have fun and have a Mai Tai for me.

No, I didn't bring my eauipment. but, there is something magnetic about driving down the road, and seeing a Bowling Alley, that makes the car make a turn into the lot. All of a sudden, a slow, relaxing vacation turned into a waste of time for the wife, and we just had to keep to a schedule.

Like now, we have nothing planned for the morning. I am posting on here. And, the wife, all of a sudden, wants to go somewhere. I am wasting valuable vacation time.

It's an addiction, I tell you. Why else would I have brought my laptop? I wasn't planning to e-mail her Mother. (Don't tell her I said that).

Hasta lumbego.

I feel you. My wife wants go to to NYC this December (we went there on our honeymoon) and the sad part is the first thing I looked up was how close the nearest bowling alley was. I sent her the links and asked if we could go but I still haven't received an answer laugh .

Hey Dennis! Thanks.

Good to hear you're having a good time without a bowling ball down in Mexico. I'm still using my Morich balls. The only addition this year was the Brunswick Ultra Zone, so I'm not being loyal any longer.

I'll try to stick around this time. Have fun south of the border!

Not a Bad Night bowled above average and we took 2 games and total pts for 5 pts out of 7 pts.

212-194-206 = 612 . Could of been better but just some untimely opens late in the game 1 and 2.

Well you know it is probably not going to be a good night when you bowl your worst game in 20 weeks but I managed to survive and almost hit my average for the night, I shot a 520 (132, 179, 209). A little sloppy on my focus especially the first game but by the last game it was much better. I am getting in an annoying habit of when I get on a string I baby the ball. I nee to knock that off. Team we went 1-3 not that it matters too much because we are buried near the bottom. Somehow despite going 2-30 the last 8 weeks there is still one team below us.
