Bowled on Sunday. I took the munchkin and we bowled almost 2 games each. She got tired so we only got through 7 frames on the second game. She started off putting the fingers from her right hand in the ball and then 2 handing it down the lane (she is 4). She throws a baseball lefthanded but she sees me throw right. I asked her if she wanted to throw it with her other hand instead. She said yes. So, she started bowling lefty. A little improvement in the speed. The lanes were DRY. We got there when they opened and they hadn't oiled yet. Everything went left. Even my spare ball. I used it the whole time. Not bad. I was concentrating on rolling the ball and getting a clean release. I wasn't worried about my scores. I think that I only had 1 or 2 strikes. I picked all but 2 of the makeable spares.
When we were done, I took her home and then headed out and met my team captain for bowl a few more. Our goal was to get in games and the stakes were a beer for series. We both started out with our Cells both drilled for early roll. He is a lefty. I was trying to get comfortable again with going straight up 5. I ended up using a little swing from 7 to 5. Got good carry for a 233 and missed 1 spare in the first frame (1-2-4-7). Second game, I used my Hy-Road and he used an Agent (drilled pin over ring). I left 2 splits for a 203. Last game, we both used our Cells on the right lane, and the Hy-Road/Agent on the left. I missed another spare and had a split in the 10th for another 203. He went 214, 190something, 190something. He doesn't bowl league every week and has probably shot 15 games in the last 9 months. He needs games in. Me, I just need to keep warm. It had been 10 days since I bowled and my first couple games with my daughter felt off. I felt much better the next 3.
17 more days.
