I was asked to sub 3 of the final 5 weeks in the PBA League. I replaced a 170 bowler, and I bowled for average tonight. The way the league rules work is if I am a sub with an established average, I can bowl for the absent regular bowler in the roll off, which he would miss. this team is in first, and they needed a sub so not to bowl short handed.

I finished with 780 for 4 games. A 195 average on the Shark. The Virtual Gravity worked well in game 1 but had trouble with carrydown in game 2. Finished with the Dynamic Power. If it wasn't for a stupid missed spare, my fault, I should have averaged 200.

I will not bowl for 2 weeks. Then come back for the final 2 weeks on the Viper. Looking forward to that.

The Dynamic Power is a great ball in the heavy oil. If I didn't make some mental errors, I would take this ball and match up against anyone else in the league, even the 3 pros. It gives me that much confidence.

Well, you get a cocktail glass, some ice, and put 2 shots of Scotch in it. Really soothing, and settles the nerves. I prefer a double malt.

I had this rum at a fusion-type restaurant early this month, it was amazing. Called Zaya. Probably the best high octane sipper I've ever had. I occasionally drink Crown on the rocks, and have had some scotches, but I just don't enjoy them so much.

I am living proof that a house shot is a huge joke. I think I threw one good ball in practice today (if we're being generous) and averaged 233 for 5 games. I don't know why I even bowled that much. It only takes a couple games to realize that bowling anymore isn't going to help- you just have to come back another day and pick up.

I got into a local tourney yesterday and had a poor showing. 192-237-161=590. The first game was a good game except I left two 4 pins, a 7 and a 10 pin that I missed all on the right lane. Game 2 was spare, all strikes to the 8th (10 pin missed) then 3 strikes and 9. Game 3 i searched and paid for it with splits, chopped spares and a 7-10.

I stayed 2 games on the same pair, moved 4 boards left and played the 3rd arrow. 245-269, I see a re-entry in my future.

Ok, the scene: I haven't bowled for score since Nationals in June. I've been practicing what a coach gave me to work on about 3-5 days a week, half the times with the scoring turned off so I could just focus on my drills. This past Friday night the 1st place team was bowling the 5th place team, but the 5th place team only had 1 member show up. That one member is an elderly man who comes in almost every day whether he is bowling or not, so they felt bad and don't want him to not be able to bowl. I am asked to join his team as a regular member (this league doesn't use subs, but you can add an additional roster member up until position round) so he can bowl, which was the 1st place teams idea.

I then shoot 221, 300, 194 and the other guy hits his average or better each game, and we beat the 1st place team 3 out of 4 points (oops!). I had one split in the 1st game, and one split in the 3rd game, and was clean otherwise. The 3rd game was better than the score reflects, other than the split I had all 9 count - spares and strikes. Just lost my focus a bit and wasn't as solid in the pocket.

The moral of the story: listen to your coaches and practice practice practice! And don't be nice to old people, it could come back to bite you.
(ok, one of those was a joke...)
