    Yeah, one of their guys has a 185 average and rolled 676 against us the other night. He was the only one on that team that was excessively over their average but the rest were slightly over theirs.

    I get ya - I feel exactly the same.

    Holy crow - he was hot.

    I don't actually consider 185 to be "low average" - that's mid-average and I would consider them to be able to pull off big nights with the right conditions.

    Heck, right now I'm 182 (fighting through wrist and thumb injury - I'm stupid. Won't take time off, just more and more tape . . . ) and while doing brackets, I routinely see 180-190's pull off mid to high 600s.


    Now - if I saw a 120 avg bowler pull off a 650+ . . . THAT would be something!

    Yeah I'm not saying 185 is low, just a huge jump to 676 and it always happens against us

    You're just inspirational to bowl against!

    LOL - my father-in-law used to actually COACH the team that we would bowl against (if they needed it) . . . sigh.

    Well not a steamroller but we got steamrolled...lol. High series between all 10 on our pair was a 593 and of the 10 of us 6 of us have at least a 200 average. Got no carry and no consistency. Part of my issue was me. I just wasn't into it and really didn't feel like bowling. Timing was off until early in 3rd game when I finally got my crap together. One guy on the other team has a 203 average and rolled 495 tonight.

    So last week we lost all 3 games. Team we bowled is one of the lowest averages in the league. They had highest handicap game and highest handicap series against us.

    Last night we had 3rd highest scratch game and 3rd highest scratch series and still lost 2 of 3. The team we bowled against had the highest handicap series. Can't make this stuff up.
