FINALLY - not 300 but good enough
Finally victory is at hand - 233-243-236 = 712. 5 long years and another 700 series for MP. Took all 7 tonight. The Drunk Monkeys are going straight to the top (of course when you are near bottom up is the only way to go). 10 weeks and finally a good series. Now how about that 300? Name on a banner - I think they need to put "Mudpuppy 300" on the banner - that would be sweet...

|Mudpuppy||sounds like you are picking up where you left off char.. Ace has been pretty consistent helping us wade around the middle feeders - like 8th place out of 14th.. I've had a few good games but I have been pretty inconsistent - even so much that I didn't even want to post here.. Well I think I have it nailed down - I have been struggling to figure the lanes out thus fair - that and between being rusty with the new season.. of course I figured out I was bowling like I was on synthetic lanes with a ball made for synthetic lanes and now I switched back to the archieac wood lanes.. i straighted my stance a bit, moved a little left and it seems to be helping my game alot.. 213, 193, 203 - 609 - this week.. looking for the first 250 game and 650 series next week..|

|Drunk Monkey||I like to bowl. Not that I am any good at it. A good game for me is if I can bowl my weight. LOL With a new ball on the way perhaps my game will improve.|

Didn't do too bad tonight. 167, 196, 221 for a 584 series. It was really messed up. I was throwing nice and easy and over my mark, coming into the pocket during practice. but when we started the first game it started taking off too soon. End result 167. But I put more speed and more hook to it the second and third games.
All in all it was a good night.

Dissapointing news, the Courage Dog ball was not won, and has been put on the back burner. The wife went on a shopping bing purchasing designer purses and bags to carry her work in. Going to stick it through for a few weeks with the Rhino and then decide if another ball is in the future. I did find a sweet one (unfortunately cannot post picture here) with a lovely lady on it, legs spread and it said "SPLIT". Choices, choices!!!

practice? lol.. maybe practice walking my straight line on my way to the bar for the ride home through the city.. lol..
620 - great series.. keep us posted on your progress..
looks like I will have no problem keeping high average in this hack league.. should be fun though..
i checked my stats and last year i started with a 179 average first week so I upped it 2 pins.. lol.. I think my biggest problem last night was I didn't clean the ball for like 9 games and it just quit working for me - that and I was rusty.. usually I clean it before each week - makes a big difference.. have to break out the black magic next week..
ace - with that courage dog ball you just might be ready for the tour.. can I be your agent? "In his 6th TV appearance this year, bowling with the Courage Dog ball, hailing from the Big D, the founding member of Team Donkey Punch who's motto is GET READY TO BE PUNCHED - Ace in your face the mad bowler".. lol.. Hey there was a pro this year using a plastic ball and not for spares.. pretty funny..

141 121 140 (134 average), but I know I suck! LOL At least I won 2 games of poker though! Its nice taking money from MP. LOL
Once I get my Courage Dog, Whinnie The Pooh, or Scooby Doo ball, my game will come around!

|CharlieMavCBR||well that's not too bad hon!!! We still have a whole season to go yet. Last Thursday the lanes were a little tough but I still pulled a 206, 212, and a 202 for a 620 series. AND I lost in brackets AND poker WTF?!?!?!?!?! But now my average is too high. *Sighs* NO way I'll be able to keep it. My game fluctuates too much.|

|CharlieMavCBR||Yeah I suck! I didn't update when I got home on Thursday night. But all in all I had a pretty good night. I had to move over quite a bit though. Lanes were VERY dry and breaking hard left. so it went like this: 194, 170, 190 so I had a 554 for the night. My cousin Dave threw a 287. LEFT a HUGE split. Really sucked to be him!!!!!|

"Drunken Monkeys" RULE!!!!

Hey MP!!! Long time no see!!! I start my thursday night league tonight. Haven't bowled in a couple weeks, so hopefully my bowling ball won't feel like 20lbs for too long.
Congrats on the new team mates, btw. I was wondering if this thread would be brought back to life.

It's almost time
Well joined a new league this year and proud to announce my wife and Ace will be my new team mates! We practiced last night and I threw a 608 for my first time at the new lanes.. Looking forward to the new league and a chance to get my name on a banner...

The death of a season...
Damnit I bowled a 517 last tuesday - sucked! 201-158-160 - Just couldn't do ****.. Now I have 1 week left and I need a 688 to get my 200 - My high all year is 694 and I hit that once! So it is GO time.. My average dropped back to a high 198 but I want that 200 or at least 199 to make my average go up from the 198 mark from last year..
|04-29-2005 11:19 AM|
Well I didn't do too terribly bad last night. 225, 168, 195. the lanes were dry on the outside and very wet inside. Kind of strange. But it was nice seeing the hogh rollers F* up for once. They couldn't do shiot on the lanes. MUAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!
Tonight is my Friday night fun night. Instead of regular bowling, they are doing a 9 pin no-tap tourny. GEE as many 9 counts as I got last night, I should do just fine tonight...LOL...
THEN next week my Wednesday night summer league starts up... So I can still update. Guess I can't stay away from the damn alley...LOL
|04-22-2005 03:40 AM|
Way to go MP!! You will hit that 200 mark! Oh yes! You definitely will hit it! Well I didn't do TOO terribly bad...181. 162, and a 258...WTF?!?!?!? My second game pissed me off so bad. I kept getting ripped! And I missed some easy a$$ spares that normally are a cinch for me. So I started not to care anymore and just THREW the damn ball. And then I end up with a 258?!?!?!?!?! Well all in all I had like a 601 series. Which was fine with me.
NOW, let's see what I pull out of my arse Friday night. They still have the Women's State shot down which sucks complete A$$!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I want the old shot back damn it! LOL
If you're ever in the Harrisburg area let me know. We'll go bowl some games. Wait...Char+MP+ BEER+ bowling = MASS CHAOS FOR OTHER BOWLERS!! LOL

So anyways I think my ball tripped it but I wasn't sure because when it happened I thought it was another lane and didn't look at my foot.. So I get a 7 then another open - second game is ****.. Third game I was raping the pins again - if it wasn't for that bs foul I would have had a 700 tonight.. 235-173-247-655.. Not too shabby.. My average is now 199.961.. I need another good series next week to bump it to the 200 mark.. Char you probably forgot all about bowling with the new Kat and all - Focus Char-son... The bike will be there all Summer - get it done!
