I think this will become a regular month-end piece. You probably don’t care… but, well, I don’t care that you don’t care. Anyway, I’m still subbing in my dad’s league on Tuesday nights and bowling my league on Wednesdays.
Last night was the 1st quarter playoffs, and we started out tied for 2nd place, 5.5 games behind the #1 team. We needed to win at least 11.5 games (out of 17). My team only bowled average, but we somehow won 16 points and took home the round. The 1st place team rolled over for us. This guarantees us a spot in the year-end playoffs and gets us some extra cash (the league is weird in that money is paid out based on position finished during each quarter, and then a bonus to each team in the playoffs based on final position).
At the end of September, I noted that I wanted to go the whole year without throwing under 600. Alas, as soon as I wrote that, I shot under. But, every other series this month was over 630, including my first 700 of the season. Dropped about 1.5 points on Tuesday, but gained almost 4 points on Wednesday. Overall average: 216.67.
I’m trying to understand why I’m 7+ pins different between the 2 leagues. Probably just variance.
