    I thought Winter League (LOL - it's 100F . . . winter, sheesh) would be a good place to start posting.



    Monday the 13th (ugh - love FRIDAY the 13th, hate Monday the 13th)

    First game - guess I'm losing weight again (YAY) but my inserts were way too big so had to swap them out during practice which threw me off. No big deal - but had to deal with my nemesis, 3-6-10. HATE that. Anyway - made a few adjustments and got lined up at fifth frame (stand 27, target 12, slight belly at 8-9) and went sheet after 6 - 225.

    Second game - stone 8, missed two 10-pins (CRAP!) for 224.

    Third game - missed the pocket bad in second frame and guttered the pickup for 3-9.

    Felt GOOD. Stood much more straight, good pushoff, allowed myself to be late.

    Week 2 - struggle



    On the high end (39-40) and bowling one of the top teams. REALLY friendly and fun team to bowl with - plus first week in several months to have my 88yo father-in-law back bowling with us. He pulled off a 500 series. My wife bowled really well too - 210, I think, in her second game (she's a medium speed backup bowler - REALLY consistent)

    Can't blame the lanes (which I don't do anyway) - buddy bowling against (Eddie) was ripping it UP. His third game was front 5, church (he pulled it, he said he found extra friction but . . . LOL) and then sheet. But boy did I struggle.

    Game 1 - started getting fast on ball speed. Slowed down and re-found the pocket but really struggled with carry. I wasn't off enough to actually MOVE so I just fine-tuned to try to get it better. I did try to swap balls from the Marvel S to the IQTP in the 8th but it . . . did . . . not . . . move. I hit the 3-6 pocket. Welp - back to the Marvel S.

    Game 2 - just grind it out. Pocket 7-10 really disheartened me.

    Game 3 - still a grind (and big 4 sucked) but 208 felt better.

    Worst series since June 21.
