Good day, 400 series

Posted on June 19, 2009. Filed under: Uncategorized |

Well, I got a consistent 3 game run out of myself today, 135 127 147 for a 409 total. I tried using some loft to delay the hook a little, and keep on the right side of the head pin, and it worked pretty well. I still SUCK at spares though. I could have had at least a 180 game in the last one, and in the second game i shot 9 8 9 9 9 / 9 9… you get the idea. One of these days I’ll figure out the next level, until then I just have to keep working

Summer League?

Posted on June 14, 2009. Filed under: Uncategorized |

I’m not sure if any are still forming, but I think I’d like to join one. One problem- today’s practice was the worst I’ve bowled in months. 3 game avg was 108 😦

Man, it’s been since Christmas Eve since I posted here! Well, I’m back! And not just for bowling, but that’s why I did come back. I actually forgot I even had a blog for a few months lol

So: I spend a lot of time on DeMotivational Posters, a Facebook group. I’ve made like 170 of the things…

I love the people at least as much as the posters.

I spent some time on Madden (wii) today, a halfhour outside messing around with my sword, then bowling with some friends 🙂 I won the 1st and 3rd games, and finished the middle with a 116 while two of them tied at 117. Oh, little bro bowled his league this morning, and i got some practice while he was waiting for that to start.

 

Well, expect to see me around more…

OK, this is my first post in my first blog…hey! Hello! Thanks for dropping by. I’m into sports, such as tennis, football, soccer, bowling, racing, baseball, basketball, curling (lol j/k), you get the picture. I’m a Trekkie, a Jesus Freak, and a Sooner born and raised. I guess I’l be using this mostly to post bowling stuff, thanks to Richie for the idea.

Today:

100, 113, 130, 128, 106

I’m getting the hang of the old Thunderbolt now, i finally found my line around the fifth frame of game one. I was bowling on one lane with brother and cousins. No strikes, but consistently dropping  7 or 8. The White Dot is amazing for spares, I missed one of 8 makeables. Game two I did a little better, striking twice. After the two games, I changed lanes and bowled by myself on one lane.  In the third game I almost had a 4-bagger: X X 8/ X I wound up with 5 X’s for my best of the day, and tied second best in my young career.  About the same in game 4, but by the end i was missing just a bit because of the thumb rubbing, and my arm was getting tired. Game 5 wrapped up with one X and 7 spares, all perfect.

I went to the Pro Shop to look for shoes, but still nothing. I expected to have some Friday, but there’s no word on when the exiting GM, Brent Moore,  will come and sign off on the order. I’m also almost ready for the Street Rod Pearl, but I’m wavering between 14 and 15 lbs. I can throw 15, but I’m not used to that kind of heft just yet. Then again, I won’t get used to it unless I use it…and i have until early august to get everything I need.

I will be going for my usual 4 games Friday with the family, we’ll see how the arm/thumb hold up with more rest time between frames.

Peace Out, JB
