    Default New best series tonight

    So after last weeks 416 series I put my Uppercut on the spinner and hit it with a brand new CTD 3000. Ended up using the Uppercut all 3 games and barely made an adjustment all night. We did have no thumber lefty but we were the only 2 leftys on the pair. I stood on about 22 and targeted 10 at the arrows all night. Made minor speed adjustments and moved back about 1" on the approach when I left a 7 pin in the middle of game 2. The Uppercut was still OOB untouched but had about 27 games on it.

    So tonight threw a 256c, 235c, and 234 (725). Missed a 10 pin in game 3 to ruin a clean 30. Hope to keep it up next week

    Standings are up. For this week I had 3rd highest scratch game behind a 267 and 257. Highest scratch series, highest handicap game, highest handicap series and tied for highest handicap series for the season. We have a tournament coming up November 15th that I'm gonna enter. 80% of 220 handicap and my high average the last 3 years is a 188. Been averaging 207 the last 5 weeks or so so if I can keep that up I should have a decent chance. Current average is 193

    Awesome series!

    I got to laugh though every time I see "Beaver Falls", there's a Japanese movie "Prince of Space" and they mention strange electrical disturbances near "Beaver Falls" in it.

    its at about the 00:08:50 mark

    Lol. Beaver Falls is the hometown of Joe Namath. His brother Frank is/was an insurance agent there. Met his neice years ago. Donnie Iris also live there. Donnie grew up about a mile from me but he lives in BF now. We all know him pretty well. He wore my grandfathers old police pants on stage at a concert in the 80's and ripped the crotch out...lol. I think he had them on in one of their album covers too. My aunt used to hang out with him back in the early 80's when he was at his prime. Keith Nelson is from there too. He was a founding member and guitarist for Buckcherry. I graduated from high school with him. Now go a little further south to Hopewell and Aliquippa and now we have Mike Ditka, Tony Dorsett, Ty Law, Derrall Revis, and quite a few others. I never met any of them though.

    And thanks guys!

    Wow, do I feel old and out of touch, the only names I recognized were Namath, Ditka, and Dorsett.

    lol. Here is another name. Chuck Knox (former Seahawks coach) grew up near here and used to coach at the school my kids graduated from. This was way back long before my kids were there.

    Michael Keaton was from near here too. In the movie Gung Ho there was a scene where they jumped in the river. That was right across the river from our marina but that was long before we had our boat. Oh, and Christina Aguilera grew up in Rochester, PA but then her family moved to Wexford (about 10 miles away). And probably everyone here's favorite part of this story is part of the movie Kingpin was shot here at Rochester Bowl. It's about 5 floors and the alley was on the 3rd floor I think. That building is right around the corner from our marina. I bowled there once was back in the late 80's. IIRC it's only 6 or 8 lanes. And we can throw in that Mark Roth ran our local center for about 6 months back when I was running the youth league about 2002. He got scammed on that deal and the center closed a short time after he left but when he was there they changed the name to 'Mark Roths Hall of Fame Lanes'.

    ok...lol

    Struggled tonight but beat my average. Our team was great but we still only won 2/3 and we bowled the last place team. Typical of our season we bowled the worst team in the league and they were on fire tonight. First game they beat their average by 55. 2nd game they beat their average by 110, 3rd game they beat their average by 34. We beat our average in game 1 by 17, game 2 by 202, and game 3 by 100. We won game 2 and 3 but lost total pins.

    Team had a good night though. One teammate has a 183 average and rolled a 715 (233, 267, 215) tonight. His previous best was about a month ago when he rolled 660's 2 weeks in a row. He is a no thumber. His wife has a 147 average and tonight she rolled 461 but had a 182 in the 3rd game. My wife has a 103 average and rolled a 377 and got her best ever 141 in game 3. She finished the night with a 4 bagger. Another teammate has a 217 average and rolled a 690. I had a 193 average and rolled a 596 so I was right there.

    I used the Uppercut and just couldn't find the pocket early. Ball just seemed dead when it hit. Even when I had the 7 bagger in game 2 they weren't smashing strikes. Tried the old Squatch a few shots but had thumb issues. Don't have the switch grip in that ball. Just an off night but can't complain about beating my average. I just didn't feel like I was getting around the ball like I needed to.
