Live blog Week 28

Monday, March 16th, 2009

This is Jen coming to you live from Strike-n-Spare! We are down a man tonight (Brandon pre-bowled) so the goal is to bowl as fast as we can and get out of here. Lane conditions are wet (that’s what she said) and there was a little difficulty in adjustments but I think we’re now getting hang of it.

WOO-HOO!! I just bowled a 245! My highest game ever! It was a close game against JDMC, we eeked out 2 points by 8 pins.

Now we are in the second game and have a lot of ground to make to up due to Brandon getting all makey-outty with his lady all of his second game. That’s gotta be the reason he would bowl a 159. Unfortunately, skills were not on our side this time. JDMC destroyed us by almost 100 pins. Maybe it had something to do with all of them bowling well above their averages and 3 out of 4 of us did not. That’s just a hypothesis, though.

It’s the start of the third game and the lanes seem much more normal now. You know how I can tell? I’m not getting 5 strikes in a row.

Bob here: OMG! Jen just bowled a 168 to make a series of 600!!!!! First 600 EVAR!

Back to Jen…

Okay, so we didn’t win the third game…oh wait, I spoke too soon.  We actually won the third game!  SOAL ended up winning 4 points and are still in solid 9th place.  Hey, we won the first half of the season, we wanted to give the other teams a chance to be a winner as well.

Week 27 Results

Monday, March 9th, 2009

Well we weren’t able to pick up the win in the third game either but we won by enough in the first game that we still won overall total, picking up 3 points on the night. The snakes haven’t been doing so hot as of late and will probably fall to 9th or 10th place with next week’s standings. It’s a good thing that we won first place in the first half.

Bob 184 174 161 Total: 519
Brandon 193 167 206 Total: 566

Bob was able to pick up three points, narrowly missing the bonus two points by only five pins. Andrew was able to pick up two and Brandon one while the leader, Jen, came away empty handed. With only four or five weeks left, it looks like it will come down to the wire again.

Don’t trashtalk if you can’t win. Also, don’t bowl shitty. Snakes lose the second by 15 but still up overall.

Welcome to the wonderful world of live blogging. Stay tuned for live posts throughout the night.

Due To Technical Difficulties…

Monday, March 2nd, 2009

This week’s bowling has been interesting and not in a good way. Because of a faulty lanes we are still in the middle if the second game. Every time someone throws on lane 43, it registers a gutterball on lane 44. Oy vey.

Ok, it looks like we’re going to get them to move us to lanes that work properly. Update soon.

*** OK ***

Now it’s the next day. Live blogging is fun, but once we moved lanes we were trying to hurry along: no time for shenanigans. Anyway. The lanes conspired against us, I am terrible at bowling, and we lost all three games. Arg.
