    Meh.....

    188/242/172 = 602. S**tloads of mistakes the first game. Played on 3 and 4. For whatever mental reason, I literally threw every shot on three wide. This includes the 242 game. I do not know why. I do not know what was in my head. I do not know how to fix that. I threw 9 strikes in a row on lane 4. Huh? I thought maybe I had something going in the second game, but my tenth frame shot was a 7-10, and the slide was on after that.

    I get it. I feel like a complete tool pissing and moaning about 3-4 weeks in a row at, near, or above 600, but this is beyond frustrating. My teamate told me last night that I should really look at the shoulder surgery as a reason, but I'm not buying that. I've got a bug, and I don't know how to eradicate it. Yep, average still at 198.

    Signs of life at the old Arcade tonight.

    256/245/212 = 713. still had 4 or 5 opens tonight, but damn near everything else was a strike. I really wish I could sit here and tell you what I did right tonight, other than just cutting down on the first ball mistakes. All opens were on splits. Last game the shot just got away from me, and I couldn't keep up. Average now 201. Getting there....

    Something had to give.

    213/268/279 = 760. Really poor start to the first game. 2 opens and 3 10-pins in a row. Then it was like someone threw a switch. Ran 6 to close the game, and 6 to start the next for an A.P. 300. Started the third game with 9. Weak 10 cost me that one. Would love to do this every night. Will take what I can get. Average bumps to 205.

    Nice! What is an A.P. 300? Assuming it's a 12 bagger over 2 games. Just never heard of A.P. before. Back in the late 90's I finished a game with 5 and started the next with 7 and had something like a 245 and a 266 (my personal highest game). I quit in 2002 until just about a year ago and struggling now so doubt I will ever get a 300....lol. My teammate rolled his first ever 300 last night so that was cool. He is my best friends son and I helped coach him in the early 2000's when he was about 7 or 8 years old.

    Awesome night! Keep it up.

    You are spot on! This would be A.P. 300 game #7.

    Back to reality.

    198/194/221 = 613. Could not get comfortable in my own shoes last night. If I wasn't rushing the line, I was late a dragging a foot. Seemed to find a little something in the 3rd, but too little, too late. Team took 27 of 30 points, and two of the missed ones were mine. Also missed 3 of 4 10 pins as well. Not a stellar night. Average stays at 205.
