    Another Tuesday, another ho-hum night.

    223/191/219 = 633. Never really got anything going last night. One turkey the whole night. Missed 2 7-pins (WTF?), left an 8-10, and the only ball out of the pocket left a 3-6-9-10, which I left the 10. Generally uninspired bowling. On top of that, got our arses handed to us by the oldest team in the league, who bowled way above and beyond their averages. "Lou Ann" beat me the second game with a 236. Her average? 132. Yeah, that kinda night. Average stuck at 208.
    Old guy with power (15.5-16; 325). Current arsenal--Storm Phaze III, Storm SureLock, Storm IQ Tour Nano and Motiv Rebel tank (spare/dry). High sanctioned game - 299. High sanctioned series - 772. A.V. 300-s - 8. Longest string - 19.

    lol. Yep, we been tunning up against those teams every week. Last week we bowled about 100 over our average every game and still lost by over 100. The team we bowled last night had high scratch game and high scratch series of the night (although we won the first game by 14 and lost the 2nd by 11. But we lost the 3rd by about 170)

    And a 633 isn't really a ho-hum night...lol

    Depends on your perspective. If you are used to averaging 190-200, 633 is a good series. If you used to average 215 or so, 633 is sort of mundane.

    Let's remember the "perspective" thing. I had 687 two weeks in a row a few weeks back. In my head, that's where I should be. In reality, not always the case. I push myself more than anyone to be better. When I'm not, that's where "mundane" kicks in.

    Yeah I push myself too. I rolled a 587 (average is 193) so I was right there but I was frustrated with it. I have been averaging about 207 the past 4-6 weeks so a 587 wasn't good. I'm getting to the point where I want a 620 every week but realistically I'm happy with a 600. I'm thrilled with a 633

    I've seen some of the happiest bowlers roll a 120. I saw a bowler nearly LOSE HER MIND when she rolled a 159. Granted, they never bowled above a 99 game before and had bowled for years...so imagine the excitement!

    And that was the downside (for me) to bowling in those type of leagues. Not only is it nearly impossible to get a feel for ball reaction when people are just throwing plastic house balls all over the place...but its also hard to explain to a person that would frame their scoresheet if they ever got 3 games over 120 why I'm ready to throw my bowling equipment in the dumpster and quit for good if I bowl 3 games under 180.

    I ran brackets for the Cal State Women's Tournament . . . back in the day. On the day that the pros had their squad and bought a TON of brackets, there was this lady in her 90s, bent way over with osteoporosis, just a sweetie. All her friends put her in brackets, a TON of them. Well, she bowled SLOW and her ball speed MIGHT have cracked 3mph (LOL) but she bowled in the 130s (that's +30 or so) and she ROCKED the brackets. She was end of the day (obviously scheduled that way wisely) and all of the WPBA ladies were around her lane cheering her on as she absolutely cleaned up the brackets! She had so much fun that day.

    Perspective.

    Little late, but Tuesday's scores.

    194/225/233 = 652. First game was a nightmare. Missed two 10-pins, left a 2-4-10, but got enough strikes to at least get into the 190's. Last two games better, but still had an open each game (another missed 10 and a 3-6-9-10). Shows you how strikes can moderately overcome poor spare shooting on some nights. Still, could've been a better night without all the dumb mistakes. Average clicks up one to 209.

    Late again on Tuesday's scores.

    205/190/207 = 602. This is one week I'm not going to complain too loudly about my series. We bowled a team that was comprised of 70+ year old women (a blast to bowl with!), all of whom threw plastic balls. Total handicap? 331 pins. We gave up 210 going into each game. That's not even an extra bowler, that's a GOOD extra bowler, but we won all 7. 602 was serviceable, considering the wreckage all that plastic did to the shot. My saving grace was that I left 7 10-pins, and made them all. Only opens were light-hit splits. It was definitely a "learning" kind of evening, that even brought out the rarely-used IQ Nano, which had surprising results, and may see more service soon. Average back to 208.

    A better Tuesday.

    223/225/226 = 674. One split (4-10) in the first game was the only open on the night. Think I left quite a bit out there, as I switched back to the old IQ, and the transition played a bit different. Still left 5 10-pins (4 of them could be heard across the street...). Have not missed a 10-pin in well over two weeks now. Gonna stick with this ball for as long as it plays well, just wish I had tried this sooner. Average back to 209.
