Well my last rendition of Alleygations was appropriately titled The Good, The Bad and the Ugly. This past week at the alleys we are just going to go with the Good and the Ugly. The night started off as usual with everyone having hopes and dreams of that magical 300 game…well that is everyone but Jack Windish who was hoping for a 150 game! Wow that was easy – three lines and already threw Jack under the bus – oh well I guess I will get my payback as the ever clever Jack Windish has the last Alleygations of the season (and he made sure to remind me of that when I collected my stories for this rendition).
When I first joined the bowling league I never knew it was such a physical sport – just looking around the lanes I spotted Don the Legend unable to high five anyone due to an injured right arm, Matt Wilson nursing a broken finger and a host of others with all sorts of knee and back ailments. In addition, Esther Lauer narrowly escaped a tragic foot injury when her ball was knocked from her hand at the ball return. It seems the “Oldest Bowling League West of the Mississippi” is actually living up to its namesake!
Now onto the Good and the Ugly…well maybe we will just use Bad since Ugly has such a negative connotation…
• Good was… Frank Brandhorst buying the wining 50:50 ticket that netted him a cool $34, Bad was 31 other bowlers going home empty handed.
• Good was…Team Scott getting a “hanging” after only 3 frames, Bad was being Ken Shuman.
• Good was…Team Ankrom rolling a 851 game, Bad was taking a beating by Team McNutt rolling a 945 game.
• Good was…Team Scott having a fun night bowling against Team Weiss, Bad was being the last teams to finish at nearly 8:40pm
• Good was…Enjoying the comraderie of the Rotary bowling league with the likes of Jack Windish, Bad was being his teammates – he gets hung and won’t pay, he sticks Don with his tab and blames it on a banged up Weiss, etc. (alleygations by his teammates).
Now onto the bowling scores – I do have to apologize as I think that I am leaving a few out and don’t have all the correct scores. Our usual cohort Bruce from Olivette Lanes was out of town on the sunny shores of some beach so I think that some of the scores may have been transposed. With that being said this is what I have: • Bob Kocher – 575 Series and a 203 game
• – 523 series and a 202 game
• Earl Poe – 247 game
• Blake Critzas – 217 game
• Kent Steinbreck – 214 and 202 game
• Corey Malone – 210 game
• – 200 game
• Special Mention also goes to the following bowlers:
o Corey Malone for throwing a ball registering 23.5mph
o Don the Legend for throwing a 197 left handed
o Jim Finch for causing a game delay by using Steve Lafara’s ball – Steve stepped up to take his turn but couldn’t find his ball – no wonder… was rolling it on the other lane?
It seems that in all of life there is usually the Good and the Bad; however, that isn’t always the case. One fine example is Adam McNutt who just found out that he and his wife Heather are expecting their first child – a baby boy due on September 7th! Congratulations to Adam and Heather and of course Rotary’s own Dave McNutt on becoming a grandpa for the third time! Please take time to congratulate Adam and Dave. For all you non-bowling Rotarians please take time on a Monday night and stop by Olivette Lanes – you are guaranteed to experience some “warm” Rotary fellowship and a lot of fun!
