This week we bowled against KNC, a team that is intense with their bowling and with their ability to have a good time. We started off with a bang, capitalizing on their slow start and our 61 pin handicap advantage. We took the first game, giving us a bit of a confidence boost. The second game was not as pretty as the first, due in part to my 134 and Joel, on the other team, bowling a 265. Boo me for being so bad and boo him for being so good. As we started the third game, Mel gave the signal to Brad at the front desk to kick out the jams with a mix CD of early 90′s techno and hip hop super hits. Tag Team, Naughty by Nature, 2 Live Crew, Salt ‘n’ Pepa, and that one song from Bring It On (you know, the one with the spirit fingers) provided the soundtrack for some awesome bowling. 7 of the 8 bowlers beat their averages with Brandon hitting a 225 and Joel on the other team dropping a 268 on us (for a 714 series(!)). Not content with simply scoring well, I started a trend by booty shaking after a spare pickup. One thing led to another and soon everyone was doing their strike dance (or spare dance). We even go the old stick in the mud Rich to show us his Tootsie Roll after a particularly emphatic strike. Unfortunately, our dance moves were not enough to prevail in the third game. We kept close enough to win the overall score, though, which was nice.
I am a little worried now because my lead was trimmed by one point tonight. It seems that Brandon is very intent on not going to afternoon tea and would like to have lunch at the Penthouse Club, instead. What? You would rather have boobs than tea and crumpets? That’s crazy talk. Oh, no, there will be no nekkid booby-shaking my way, the gauntlet has been thrown, I must not lose my dignity.
