6 games

Posted on July 31, 2008. Filed under: Equipment, General |

OK I’m back. I did my 3 games monday: 98,108,88. Not too bad for me…

Now tuesday was much better. Incidentally my lil’ bro got himself a white dot + bag today, so we’re all loaded. I got shoes finally, just some basic Dexters. I rolled: 99, 94, 141!!! NEW CAREER HIGH!!! Okay so I haven’t even broken 150 yet, but I had 5 X’s in the game, also a record (I had 11 total). I found that if I crank up the revs and set the Street Rod down just on the edge of the boards, it hooks in perfectly on our house shot. Funny thing is, 9 of my 11 X’s were brooklyn…guess I found that my line leads to NY. The old Thunderbolt D/B was behind 3 (I think) of those strikes, all brooklyn. I found myself relying on the Dot less and less, but it still came in pretty handy. I also found a lot of waxy buildup on the Rod, but it was easy enough to clean up…that’s never happened before. Well, I only have a few weeks left here, but good news: I enrolled in Bowling 101! OU has a bowling class of which I am now a member.

Strikin’ out,

JB

Taking a break

Posted on July 21, 2008. Filed under: Equipment, General |

I took this week off out of laziness out of need to rest, but on Monday i did try the new ball out. It hits with a ton of force, perfect deflection for my line, and good backend. I saw pins explode like crazy on a few hits, but I need to find the hooking zone. Sometimes I’d scooch it all the way into the right gutter, and I had several Brooklyn hits. It’s just a matter of consistency, something I’ve never been good at but I’m working on it. Scores  130 126 99 115

Hit the Streets!

I finally arrived back sat. nite, rested all day yesterday, and picked up my  new Street Rod today. Camp took enough out of me that I don’t ferel like hitting the lanes just yet, maybe tommorow. I also couldn’t do the usual monday trio of me, Trevar and Lambert-they just got back too. Pix forthcoming…

Love ya, JB

New bag, blogroll

Posted on July 3, 2008. Filed under: Equipment, General |

I picked up a nice KR strikeforce 2-ball bag at the Pro Shop yesterday:  http://www.krstrikeforce.com/prod_detail.php?prod_id=8920&brand_id=

Also, mnogo spasibo (big thanks) to Richie V for adding me to his blogroll, I’ve done the same. Check out his Tenth Board blog when you get a chance!

Hopefully I will be able to work on my strike form and pick up some shoes tomorrow…

Peace out, JB
