The kids wanted to get an auto of their second cousin in Twisted Brown Trucker, alongside Kid Rock. Well, Jason was very gracious to sign them for the kids and also get Kid Rock to sign it as well. Thanks a ton Jason! The kids loved adding these to our celebrity autograph wall. Actually Zach wouldn’t allow us to add to our wall, he wanted it hung up in his room 🙂 Nick was more accommodating.
Reminds me of Michigan, I miss it sometimes. Especially the summertime’s.
I don’t think it will be broken by me in my lifetime now, with the latest 858 thrown down at Astro Lanes last night by yours truly. The games were 300-279-279. The ball used was an AMF Xcite (Bright Pink in Color). The 2 misses (ok, actually 3, but it was the 12th frame of the last game) were all misses on my part as I had brain farts and missed my mark each time. When I mean misses, I mean not a Strike. I was 33 out of 36 on the amount of strikes thrown.
The 300 was not as nerve-racking as the ones in the past. I felt the nerves on the 11th frame shot, but that was about it. I believe this was my 5th Sanctioned 300, and 8th total in my career. With all 5 Sanctioned ones happening the last 6 years, go figure..
I must get better with age 🙂
This week marked my 4th sanctioned 300 game bowled. The 11th frame, I was nervous a bit, and yanked the hell out of the throw and it went Brooklyn for the strike. I then took another deep breathe and nailed the 12th one like no ones business.
The second game was amazing, not for the game itself, but how it went down. 7 out of 12 strikes for a whopping 192. I know I’ve never had as many strikes in a single game and didn’t break the 200 mark. 2 Splits, killed me.
So the third game should have been another 300, but finished with a 269. Series final, 761. Missed the 800 series too 🙁
I was lucky enough to bowl in a Senior-Guest doubles tournament with one of the owners of the local bowling alley, and right out of the gate I shot 300. The first 11, ya they were not doubt, but the 12th one, I did feel the nerves and I went right through the nose. Luckily they all fell, very sloppy. But they did all fall.
That makes 5 total 300’s for my career, with 3 of being fully sanctioned, and 2 thrown in practice.
For the 8 games I averaged 222, so that was OK. Us as a team, we didn’t make the cut, there was a lot of good bowlers at this tourney. Onto the next tournament.
