    BOOM!!! 657! I think my best ever was a 655 but not sure. It was probably 25 years ago when I bowled that. Lanes had a little more oil tonight. I used the Squatch pearl every frame all night and targeted the 7-8 board all night. We had 4 lefties on our pair. Our whole team bowled pretty good. We bowled the first place team and took 2 of 3 and total pins.
    So strikes were plentiful tonight. Tugged a few shots and got some Brooklyns so that helped. Started out with the pinky in tight and about the end of game 1 I started tucking it. Left it tucked the rest of the night. Game 3 I started getting a little sloppy and missing my target but gathered it back up. Spares were off a little tonight. In the end very happy with the results tonight.

    Game 1: 221 (7 strikes, 3 spares, 1 open)

    Game 2: 236 (8 strikes, 1 spare, 2 opens)

    Game 3: 200 (6 strikes, 4 spares, 1 open)

    Another decent night. A few weeks ago I would have said fantastic night so it's good that I think a 612 is decent. 4 600's in a row so think I am on to something here. Lanes were a little more oily tonight than they had been but it worked for me. I started to struggle in game 3 but still pulled out a 200. 11 of my last 13 games are > 200, including my last 8.

    Used the Squatch pearl all night until the 9th frame of game 3. Should have switched earlier but was stubborn about it. Used the Black Widow Gold the last 4 balls and had 4 pocket strikes.

    Should have been a much better night but struggled with spares. Missed 3 7's, 1 5, and 1 8. Should have made at least 4 of those 5 spares. I was 100% (7/7) on multi pin spares though.

    Game 1: 211 (7 strikes, 1 spare, 2 opens)

    Game 2: 201 (5 strikes, 3 spares, 2 opens)

    Game 3: 200 (5 strikes, 6 spares, 1 open)

    Series: 612

    Average: 204

    Running average: 188.90

    First ball average: 8.94

    Strikes: 51% (17/33)

    Spares: 66% (10/15)

    Single pin spares: 37% (3/8)

    Splits: 0% (0/0)

    Default Still rollin' here

    Another good night in the books for me but we still lost 2 of 3. We were on the end pair which usually have more extreme transitions but I usually do better on those. So Saturday I hurt my back so I was worried tonight but it didn't bother me. Tried the Conspiracy in warmups but didn't like the reaction. Started with the Squatch then started coming in high so picked up my speed a little. Middle of game 3 I switched to the BWG. Overall a good night but still missed a few spares that I shouldn't have.

    Game 1: 214 (6 strikes, 4 spares, 1 open)

    Game 2: 208 (8 strikes, 2 spares, 2 opens-1 split)

    Game 3: 199 (5 strikes, 4 spares, 1 open-1 split)

    Series: 621

    Average: 207

    Running average: 190.54

    First ball average: 9.29

    Strikes: 54% (19/35)

    Spares: 71% (10/14)

    Single pin spares: 85% (6/7)

    Splits: 0% (0/2)

    Another good night. Just sucked at spares. Strikes were unreal (64%). Had I converted my spares probably would have been a 700. Lanes seemed a little on the drier side. Started with the Squatch pearl the first 2 games. 10th frame of game 2 I switched to the Black Widow Gold and struck out in the 10th for a 190. Just missing simple spares that a 10 year old can make.

    Game 1: 222 (7 strikes, 1 spare, 2 opens-1 split)

    Game 2: 190 (8 strikes, 1 spare, 3 opens)

    Game 3: 236c (7 strikes, 4 spares)

    Series: 648

    Average: 216

    Running average: 192.66

    First ball average: 9.41

    Strikes: 64% (22/34)

    Spares: 50% (6/12)

    Single pin spares: 66% (4/6)

    Splits: 0% (0/1)

    Struggled tonight but it actually wasn't bad overall. Firstly we won all 3 games. First time this season we have done that. Teammates were on fire tonight. Lanes were extremely dry right from the beginning. I made it work in game 1 but struggled after that. Started with the Squatch then midway through game 2 switched to the BWG. I needed a weaker ball but didn't have one. I moved into the oil but kept tugging the ball. I need to work on that.

    Game 1: 215 (6 strikes, 2 spares, 2 opens-1 split)

    Game 2: 180 (5 strikes, 3 spares, 3 opens)

    Game 3: 170 (3 strikes, 5 spares, 2 opens)

    Series: 565

    Average: 188.33

    Running average: 192.33

    Strikes: 43% (14/32)

    Spares: 58% (10/17)

    Single pin spares: 69% (9/13)

    Splits: 0% (0/1)

    Strike game struggled tonight but spares were strong. I guess it is a good thing that I'm frustrated with a 570. Sanded my Conspiracy with a 3000 today and tried it in warmups. Threw it 3 times and 3 pocket strikes. Tried the Squatch once and a pocket strike. Started the game with the Conspiracy and struggled. Switched to the Squatch about the 4th or 5th frame but was just off a little. Finally picked my speed up a little in game 2 and big difference. Started game 3 with the Squatch but switched to the BWG about 4th frame but struggled in game 3 (and earlier a little too) tugging my shots. We won all 3 games again. My average is still at 192 but this past 2 weeks I have struggled. Last week strikes were good but struggled with spares. Tonight strikes were tough but spares were good.

    Game 1: 171 (3 strikes, 6 spares, 2 opens-1 split)

    Game 2: 214 (6 strikes, 4 spares, 1 open-1 split)

    Game 3: 185 (4 strikes, 6 spares, 1 open-1 split)

    Series: 570

    Average: 190

    Running average: 192.16

    First ball average: 9.03

    Strikes: 39% (13/33)

    Spares: 80% (16/20)

    Single pin spares: 92% (12/13)

    Splits: 0% (0/3)

    Average the last 8 weeks (24 games): 203.54

    Strikes were hard to come by again. I kept tugging my shots. Spare shooting was decent. Used the Squatch in the 1st 2 games then the BWG in game 3. Lanes dried up bad tonight. My struggles were used induced but the dry lanes didn't help.
