Bits-n-Pieces Holiday Party

Wednesday, December 26th, 2007

The Bits-n-Pieces League always has a holiday party right before Christmas, which basically means that every team has to bring something to share. Of course, we were too lazy to actually make something, Bob ran out and got a veggie tray from Sams (it’s a great veggie tray). And as part of the spirit of giving, the team we bowled that night was generous enough to give us 7 points. So, yeah, we kicked booty that night. Of course, there was a little bit of drama involved to make the night more interesting. Brandon decided to liven up the party by falling onto the lane when he went up to bowl, twice. We are talking about throwing himself down the lane. It was pretty scary, but he was a true athlete, he just got up and bowled again with no complaints. Unlike the other team, where this one guy kept complaining about our strikes and how we all didn’t deserve them. Wah-wah! Andrew finally woke up and bowled like himself, earning 4 points.  Bob came out of the gate roaring in the first game, went to raid the food table during the second game, when he was full, he came back to bowl in the third, so 3 points for him.  Brandon was unable to obtain any points for the week, due to the fact that he was injured.  And then there’s me.  Yea, me.  I beat the boys in the second game (I was very excited about that) and bowled well in the third.  We won’t mention the first game.  That means, 4 points for me.  Merry Christmas to all of us.

Second Half Starts off with a shrug

Sunday, December 16th, 2007

Well, we won four points this week against Lethal Weapon, who were missing their lady who was recovering from heart surgery. The first two games showed some pretty mediocre bowling for most. In the third game, Lethal Weapon woke up and destroyed us to get the point for overall score, as the first two games were pretty close.

So, yeah, it started off ok. Not good, but at least we got some points.

Brandon, please update the spreadsheet to handle the second half scores…

First Half Done

Tuesday, December 11th, 2007

We’ve all been slacking a bit on the weekly updates so I’ll just sum it up in two words: Bob won.  Yep, he is the big winner the first half of the season so he gets to make the rest of us pay for his dinner at the restaurant of his choice.  We ended up in 7th place going into this last week and we took 5 points from the Fabulous 4.  Now, we’ll just have to wait to see how the teams above us did before we know for sure what place we are.  Hopefully, the 6th place team bombed and we move up.

Next week the points are wiped clean and a new battle will ensue.  Who will come out on top, who knows?  If I win, I will have them take me to afternoon tea, just to rub some salt into their wounded prides.
