The snakes come into week 21 with a record of 23 and 5, sitting in first place by 4 points. Anticipations where high to remain in first, fueled by our desire to not give up any points to Delaney’s team (alleged wife beater last season who has become a much nicer person in public this season). As everybody knows from the previous post, Bob and Jen prebowled and did pretty well. Also, in our favor, was that we got 67 pins each game in handicap from The Rednecks. So, throw all that in a bowl and stir and what you get is hopefully 7 easy points.
Buuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuut, that is not how the night would unfold. The first game appeared to be going in our favor, eeven though Andrew and myself were bowling like shit. Not getting strikes and hitting way too many splits. Then, Delaney of the Rednecks strings 5 or 6 in a row, including all 3 in the 10th. The game just kept slipping away and the two of us just couldn’t get a grip on it. The Rednecks would take game one by 39 pins.
The second game was better, merely due to the fact that The Rednecks start bowling shitty. Also, the lanes started to act retarded. Pocket shots would leave splits and head-on shots would blow up. However, the game was again slipping away and there wasn’t anything that Andrew or I could do. We just didn’t have it. The Rednecks would again win, by 3 pins. We won’t mention that I opened in the 10th, meaning that had I not, we would have won.
The third game was much better as Andrew and I started throwing what the house apparently wanted, head on and Brooklyn shots. The snakes needed to win by 43 pins to take home 3 points on the night. Andrew and I would eventually hit a stride that should never had worked, but luck was in our favor. Even though Jessica was 70 pins over her 154 average, Bob put up a huge number to give us a big ass cushion in the 3rd game. The other Rednecks would falter and shoot under average. The snakes won the 3rd game…………..by 108 pins. We shot 785 scratch, which is higher than the previous 2 games handicapped totals.
So overall, we won 3 points, which is not at all what we wanted. However, knowing that we were in first place by 4 points and we won 3 points, the worst position we could fall to is TIED for first place.
Bob and Jen, Andrew and I are sorry………
