Why I'm Both Happy And Pissed This Morning

Last night was my league bowling night, and the team I'm on is called The Rockheads (in tribute to Fred Flintstone and Barney Rubble's bowling partner Joe Rockhead).  The Rockheads consist of me, my brother Tom, and our friend Robbie.  We're all pretty good bowlers with Robbie and I both averaging 182, and Tom 190.

 

Why am I both pissed and happy this morning?  Because I SUCKED last night with a capital S-U-C-K-E-D!!!!!  The nadir of my evening was the second game where I had four splits in the first 6 frames, and wound up with a 145.  That 145 has been captured for posterity because of what my big brother did last night.

 

 

It was really exciting to watch, with all of Terrace Gardens quiet, watching as he threw his final shot, and the league mobbing him after the last strike.  He actually had 19 in a row... the last one in the first game, twelve in the second, and the first six of the 3rd game.

 

I think it's funny that Robbie and I combined only beat Tom by 13 pins.  At least I can say I bought him the ball he used for Christmas.

 

Hopefully, I'll be able to put a picture of a perfect game from ME up here someday.  Until then, this is the best I got (with my lousy score up there... F***!!!!!!)
