Singles shot 191 189 229 for 609 and should be a small cash.
Cool, but how was the gambling?

Up a few with some outstanding futures upside. Profitable is always good!

Didnt get a ton of time to play cards as was over at SouthPoint bowling or practicing mostly every day. And when we had time, it was mostly drunken BJ. Which turned out ok.

My ankle is basically fine at this point and I was going to try and bowl last night for league as we were just 0.5 points out of first and it was knockdown. Unfortunately my wife needed to have her gallbladder out. So I was with her all day and obviously I didn’t go to league. Fortunately my team got it done and went 3-1 to win the second half! We’ll have a title
Match next week and I should be good to bowl in that.

My wife ended up needing to stay overnight in the hospital, so after she went to bed I stopped by league to watch them finish off game 3. It was close...their anchor could have won the last game for a 2-2 split if he threw the first two in the 10th, but he didn’t get the first one.

I stayed after to prebowl for my Thursday league so I could stay home and take care of my wife tonight. Mostly used my new Rhodman Pearl. Lanes were pretty chewed up from the league before, but I shot 264, 200, 180 for 644. Had I not bowled my absent score would have been 204 x 3 for 612. So game 1 is a huge help, game 2 is meh and game 3 might hurt them, but we’re up 7 points with only 7 points left. So game 1 should get it done and then it doesn’t matter. Ankle felt fine bowling, didn’t even take Advil beforehand like I planned to.

We won games 1 and 2, but lost game 3 and wood. Didn’t matter, after we won game 1 it was over. First and second half champs, no championship match needed! Bowling since 2006, and that’s my first title. Here’s hoping to add #2 on Wednesday

Bowled out Wednesday night league championship tonight. On my 208 I was subpar with 183, 195, 201 for 579.
Lost game 1 by 113, lost game 2 by 11, won game 3 by 51. Game one just killed us. I was 25 under that game, a teammate was like -60 and the other team was like plus 40.
Oh well. Two leagues...one first place, one second place.

Tonight didn’t count towards average, soo finished 208 in one league and 214 in the other, both my highest for a season.

Vegas in 1 week. Got my new athletic tape, compression sleeve, new jerseys, might get a new ball while I'm out there. Only concern is that we are a 7am squad on day 3 of the Vegas trip, and Sunday night we are going downtown for boozing and gambling.
