Bowling Recap: Not Good

Bowling is all about consistency.  If you can hit the head pin every roll, good things will happen.  Just not on Shabbat.

Of course, the angle at which you hit the pocket does greatly increase your chances of a strike (or at least the avoidance of the dreaded split). This is why "straight bowlers" don't consistently roll 200 games.  To score big, you must convert all your spare chances and hope to get a few "Brown Strikes" here and there.  A Brown Strike was coined by BEARDFACE years ago, and refers to a "lucky ass bullshit strike" (his words).  Apparently I get a lot of these.

Anyway, everyone has their own style. I refuse to become a "gay bowler" like E-Flo, Geoff and Rollo (who curve the ball).  Straight power!

-------------

So how did we roll?  Both the Beer Splits (Alley Gators) and Alcobowlics had the same goal: score at least one point.  The Gators put together a dominate effort in game one, and instantly achieved their goal with a 30-pin victory.  Too bad the other team turned it on when Maria threatened to quit for the 100th time.  Even though she participated in BYOV night (bring your own vodka), her gutter-balls were just too powerful and the Splits lost 3-1.  Chandler has still yet to have his score dropped... and Karen bowled 9:15pm (lights out!) with a 171 in game 2.  Jared, well, he's quite lovable.

What about the best dressed team in the league: Alcobowlics?!?  Obviously I couldn't watch their game, but they have yet to score a single point this season.  And they got CRUSHED last night.  But they continue to have a rather large cheering section each week.

So there you have it.  Bowling.
