Let's go Bowling!!

OK, so Angela is always trying to get me to post about different things going on in my life and what we do from day to day. I always say I will post something and then never do. I don't know...maybe I get lazy or just forget. Anyways, one thing that has been going on, is Angela and I have been on a bowling league. For the summer time we were on a weekend bowling league and I was also on my work bowling league. For the weekend league we ended up taking 3rd place and took home about 90 bucks in prize money. I believe we could have done better, but we had to bring in a sub for the last 3 weeks because Angie being large with child, was having a hard time hurling her 13 pound ball down the lane. (She was a good sport and didn't complain until the very end) Anyways, we placed 3rd on that league and I placed 10th overall on my work league. Not too bad I guess, that is out of 24 teams. I am now bowling on the fall work league and my team is really committed to winning. In fact I had my all time high score today of 239. I will give updates as I improve and the season goes on.

You know, I used to think that bowling was just for drunk rednecks, but if you start throwing a hook ball and get the right equipment, there really is a technique and skill behind it. That's not to say that you can't do it while eating a hamburger and drinking a mountain dew, but you get what I'm saying.

Ok, I was NOT large with child when I quit bowling, in fact I'm still barely showing! On nights after we bowled my back just started hurting really bad, so I had to quit. I do think we would have gotten 1st place if I hadn't of quit, sorry to let you down, team!

Good job on your high score today babe! That was another good one!!!

You should've got me as a sub. You would've gotten better than first place!!!

239 is pretty dang good. Lets see if you can do better than 10th this time around!

So the last time I bowled (last week) I got a 54. Does that mean we can't be friends?

Dad got about 135 a few weeks ago--way to go John!
Angie---I didn't think you were large with child yet--sounds like John is exaggerating. It sounds like you guys are having fun!!
