    So I did make it in to bowl a quick few games Sunday... really just rushed through a few games. Got 159, 171, 176 for a 506 set. Not great and I chopped a TON of spares. Used old equipment and didn't really get great ball motion out of any of it. Still good practice, and a 500 on sport is a 500

    On to league:

    246, 222, 265 - 733 set



    Played the lanes really well and had a nice, smooth release going. Hit some problems around end of game 1/beginning of game 2 but made a big move in and was able to properly adjust from there. Bounce back week! Team is slowly climbing the standings... we'll see how long this average can stay up.

    Thanks Tim. Don't have my pic this week but I'll throw up the stats:

    Monday doubles -
    214, 234, 175 - 623 series

    Strikes: 47%
    Spares: 75%
    - Single Pin: 100% (10/10)
    - Multiple Pin: 33% (2/6)
    - Splits: 0% (0/2)

    Did "OK" here. Timing was way off in game 1, got it back for most of game 2, and lost it again (forcing the shot) by game 3. Is what it is, I suppose. On the positive side, I closed all single pin spares including all six 10pins.

    Hell, I would just like to get back. Still about a month off. Went through the motions the other night on my slippery living room floor in my socks. Shoulder didn't hurt, but still pretty tight.

    Ill probably just be posting sporadically on scores now unless something good happens.

    7/23:
    268, 234, 204 - 706 series
    7/30:
    246, 228, 211 - 685 series
    8/6:
    200, 212,225 - 637 series

    Only things of note - I have been struggling with transition some (and did here the first 2 weeks). on 8/6 I didn't get there in time for any warm up and went in cold, had trouble until frame 5... switched to pearl in game 3 and it made a big difference as it was actually the highest game I had.

    This tells me - time for a refresh/drill on the hyroad, and maybe invest in a new pearl at some point. Oh, and also don't be afraid to go to it when the lanes get fried to get down the lane more : )

    Last week of Monday Doubles:

    227, 228, 212 - 667 series. Honestly, I hit the pocket on 34 of 35 shots. Brand new pins meant a lot of single pins... I only had 1 multi pin spare on the one bad shot I threw. On another night this could have easily been a 750+. Oh well! Other team struggled and we took 7 of 9 points for a final showing of 6th place out of 42.

    Doubles "Eliminator" tournament:

    195, 289, 169

    Weird night. First 2 games bowled, then cutoffs from there. game 1 had trouble finding a line, switched balls in frame 2 of game 2 and nearly punched out. Still never gotten a 290, but I'll certainly take this! Then we had to wait for 20 min and start single game, with no warmups. I threw out my back in the 5th frame, and just tried to finish it out. As you may guess, we didn't advance.

    Quite concerned about the back, supposed to bowl tomorrow in the Classic league and not sure if I'll even be able to lift a ball.

    Haven't posted for a bit, been kind of crazy with fall leagues starting up and dealing with a couple of nagging injuries - my wrist started acting up again, same thing as April. May need to get a medical opinion in it if it keeps flaring up...

    Tuesday:

    8/28: 187, 168, 226 - 581 series
    9/4: 223, 178, 227 - 628 series

    Wednesday:
    8/29: 236, 202, 198 - 636 series
    8/31 (post bowl for week 1 - long story): 219, 225, 224 - 668 series

    Not a whole lot to report, struggling with transition a bit in game 2 in both leagues. Happening way faster/more extreme than in the summer doubles, obviously. Lots of single pins (left ten 10pins last night, picking up 9 of them). My team on Wednesday underwent a bunch of change - no one showed up week 1 except me (fun), so I picked up a bunch of other people for week 2 and now have a full team. League surprisingly allowed a post bowl for week 1 on it, so I went on a day off over the weekend and bowled decent on burnt up conditions.

    Wednesday Classic, 9/5

    246, 224, 194 - 664 series.

    Same story, bunch of single pins. game 3 everything was burnt and my longest ball wouldn't stay to the right. I'm going to need to invest in something for the burnt up lanes that I can use in game 3.

    Tuesday, 9/11/18:

    255, 237, 196 - 688 series

    Back on track here, 29/30 clean. I chopped a 3-6-9 on the last frame of game 3. Had a nice line, moved with the lanes, game 3 I made a ball change towards the end that I really should have just moved another board or 2 left with my DDT. Wasn't pleased with both missing the clean 30 and a 700, but hey. Good night overall and we got a much-needed sweep.

    Wednesday, 9/12:

    207, 247, 204 - 658 series

    I came in cold after missing warm up again (road work has been shutting the highway down to put out cones and close lanes and stuff right at 7pm as I'm coming in... super annoying). So game 1 was a little bit of a "get loose" session for a few frames, but found a decent line. Game 2 I was on, and even in 3 stayed ahead of transition for the most part. Happy to get 3 games over 200.

    Stayed with the DDT and moved way in, which worked pretty well. I'm not super comfortable playing left of 15 but trying to make it part of my game. I struggled a little on 10 pins last night, missing 2 of them after covering like.. 20 in a row before that.
