    Trying to get away from that "one game ruins everything" bowling.

    247/192/219=658. Was moving along just fine until the 5th frame of game two. Yanked the crap out of the ball, and Greek church. Downhill from there. Was on a 270-ish pace in the 3rd, and wheels came off there, too. Two weeks in a row that could have easily been 7's had I cut out the dumb mistakes. Average 214. I was also looking forward to pre-bowling for next week so I could go to the Brewers playoff games. Not so much....

    I tried to get away from the "one game ruins everything". Went to the "two game" method.

    197/186/237=620. Let's start with I hate lanes 7 and 8. Some of the worst games I've thrown in this building have come on this pair. That said, 5 opens in 2 games, splits or not, will kill you every time. Last game was clean. Need to get these two lanes out of my head. Average backs up 1 to 213.

    I figured out the trick. Go get your Covid booster the day before.

    235/257/244=736. This night was not a "best of" night by any means. I missed 4 out of 5 10 pins I left, plus one other open. Only the last game was clean. Not sure where I was on the whiffs, as I think I hadn't missed a 10 in a few weeks. I'll definitely still take it. just gotta clean up the mistakes. Average 217.

    My grandpa, the man who had the most influence on my game, would repeatedly tell me the same thing whenever I got down on myself. "Tim, one day this all comes together, and it all makes sense". That night was tonight.

    300/300/256=856

    I'm not sure where my head was walking in, but it seems like it was in the right place. Yeah, a couple balls were of the "got away with that one" variety, but not many. The string was 25 strikes. The total on the end of the night was 33. Here's all the firsts--

    1st 300 game
    1st (2) 300 game night
    1st back-to-back 300's
    1st 800 series
    1st 30-clean night

    Average is now 224. If you'll excuse me, I have some jewelry to go pick out.....

    Whoa! Awesome. Congrats.
    A year or so ago I said on here that I would probably never roll a 300 and I was willing to accept that. I still haven't but I now have the confidence to say that someday I will and I feel it will be this year. I mean I have rolled 12 in a row before but over 2 games. I used to average about 12 or so strikes a night (guessing) and now I'm averaging about 17.

    I was hoping to not have a letdown after the week of my bowling life. The new kid oiling the lanes provided myself, and pretty much everyone in the house with just that.

    169/152/258=579. I don't own a piece of equipment that was useable on whatever this lane condition was. You could literally see everyone's ball jump a couple of times going down the lane. Turns out he loaded the wiping roll wrong? Dunno what's inside those things. Last game was courtesy of switching to my urethane spare ball, which worked quite nicely. 7 opens in the first 2 games killed me. The one ten pin I missed actually hooked at the end and passed right by. Sounds like a training opportunity for this young lad...

    Average backs up to 222.
