Okay, that's a lesser known rule, but might be good advice for those of you headed that direction. Low-to-no energy will lead to some less than average scores. Thought I had something going in game 3 with 4 in a row to start, but that was followed by 3 opens in a row, one of them being the dreaded pocket 7-10. Learned my lesson. Call the sub.....average stays 210.
    Definitely lesser known. It does seem like people have more of a reaction to the second shot, if they have any reaction at all. I got the J&J one which is only one shot. Fairly strong reaction that night (you know I donít feel well when I skip a meal) but was fine in time for league the next afternoon.

    Tuesday's scores. Damn decent night.

    214/214/248 = 676. The switch I made a few weeks back (never mentioned this) is showing promise. I'm trying to get a little more backswing in an effort to use less energy in my swing. It's required a good amount of timing change, and this week kind of came together. Very few mistakes, and only one open (3-4-6-7-10, of which I picked out the 3-6-7. Yeah, don't ask...) on the entire night. The only thing that I'm paying for today is the timing thing has irritated a few muscles in my lower right leg, and I woke up with some awesome cramps last night. Regardless, I felt more in control last night than I have in some time. Average stays 210.

    Tuesday's score. Wanna get off the roller coaster.....

    235/212/171 = 618. Had one open in the first two games (10-pin), and 4 in the 3rd. Try as I ight to stay with the transition, we were bowling the grannies, and they destroyed the right side of the lane. No finish at all in the last game (3 of the 4 opens were 2-pin splits). Just couldn't wrap my head around where to put the ball, and paid for it. What could've been a high 6 ended up under average, which stays at 210. Two more weeks left. Can't wait.

    Surprise bowling event. Brother-in-law called, and needed a replacement for one of his state teams.

    213/263/205 = 681. Started game 1 with 2 straight splits, and then settled down. Game two was a tear, but still had one open, followed by 8 in a row. Game 3 was tough. Shot went away, and I couldn't keep up with the transition. Had to bang 4 in a row to get the 205. But, I dropped $60 in brackets, and walked away with $170. That was a nice topper to a pretty decent day. One of the guys on my BIL's team popped a 300, too. Pretty good day for 3 teams. We'll see if it gets us anywhere.

    Tuesday score. Last week. may as well keep the roller coaster going....

    198/280/205 = 683. Had serious issues at the start of the 1st game hanging on to the ball, even blowing in the hole. Tried a small piece of white tape, but nearly hit myself in the face with that. Muscled through with 2 opens. 2nd game the only miss was a light hit that damn near took down the 7-pin, but alas, she stood. all 10 after that were drilled. Last game I just plain started making dumb mistakes, and it cost me a 7. Sweeper week next week, so nothing matters after this. The house near me is doing the PBS tour thing again this summer, so I may jump in that to keep warm. Finish the season at 211, 3 off from last year.

    Sweeper week. Meh.....

    195/215/257 = 667. Same raft of dumb mistakes in games one and 2, just less in 2. Footwork was not great all night, and that led to most of the mistakes. Not going to win any money in a sweeper 34 pins over your average.

    Will be hitting the PBA tournament down the street here and there, plus I'll be bowling in the City singles/doubles tourney on May 9th. After that, it's pretty much trap shooting most of the summer. Have a great time off, folks!
