A listing (from most current to furthest back) of any write-up posts in which Ken has been mentioned:
  • Spring 2019 Recap (May 15th, 2019) -

  • The Rainbow Connection (Apr 30th, 2019) - Last week Championship dreams were washed away for everyone exceptCICK Ass, and last night 40 bowlers experienced the drowning of whatever hope they had left of winning the Tournament of Champions. But for 8 of you there could be a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, as next week the top two members of each division will compete for the largest Tournament of Champions prize in league history!

  • Clinched! (Apr 23rd, 2019) - Originally I was going to leave this week's as a robo-writeup due to me having another busy week, but then CICK Ass screwed that up for me by accomplishing something I had failed to notice they could do this week: they clinched the championship two weeks early! This makes the first championship for Chantal Jacot, 6 for Ian Goetz, a staggering 13 for Carl "Tits" Goetz, and an even more staggering 14 for Ken M. Wilson (sheesh!). Congratulations to all four of you!

  • Let Chaos Reign (Apr 2nd, 2019) - By now every team has bowled each other once, so next week is the Spring 2019 position round. But enough about next week, you came here to read about this week. The eleventh week saw four teams climb in the standings, while four teams slipped. Freda Schroeder picked up this week's high game (175) and series (442) for the women. As for the men, Jonathan Vigliaturo and Ken M. Wilson both tied for this week's high game with a 237, and high series was earned by Aaron Barber with a 663. Read on for all the rest of the details!

  • Big Ball Chantal (Mar 12th, 2019) - Many times throughout our history bowlers have bought a new ball and seen immediate improvement in their game. But never before have we seen this happen as dramatically as it did last night with Chantal's new ball. Overall, two teams climb in the standings, while three teams slipped. One bowler set a new personal best series, and two rolled new personal high games. Chantal Jacot picked up this week's high game (208) and series (471) for the women, while Dennis Walling earned this week's high game (245) and series (634) for the men. Read on for all the rest of the details!

  • Week 6 RoboRecap (Feb 26th, 2019) - The sixth week of Spring 2019 saw five teams climb in the standings, while five teams slipped. One bowler set a new personal best series, and one rolled new personal high game. Freda Schroeder landed this week's high game for the women with a 179, and women's high series was bagged by Monica Hufford with a 447. As for the men, Matthew Taylor earned this week's high game (279) and series (747). Read on for all the rest of the details!

  • The Bowler Vortex (Jan 29th, 2019) - As the nation prepared to plunge into the harsh abyss of arctic doom, the second week of Spring 2019 saw five teams climb in the standings, while five teams slipped and one remained frozen in place. Two bowlers roll a new personal best game. Alison Radke landed this week's high game for the women with a 196, and women's high series was bagged by Monica Hufford with a 461. As for the men, Russell Bingham snagged this week's high game with a 236, and high series was earned by Seth Gunderson with a 620. Read on for all the rest of the details!

  • These Go To Eleven (Jan 23rd, 2019) - The Spring 2019 kicked off on an icy night (in which we were the only league brave enough to show up) with a record-breaking eleven teams entering the 16-week competition for the coveted, nonexistent championship trophy. Three bowlers didn't get the memo that you aren't supposed to do this the first week and set a new personal best series, and four rolled new personal high games. Monica Hufford picked up this week's high game (176) and series (468) for the women. As for the men, Jeremy Cline snagged this week's high game with a 228, and high series was earned by Conor Clarke with a 591. Read on for all the rest of the details!

  • Our [Still] Biggest Season Ever Starts January 22 (Jan 9th, 2019) -

  • Can the Dark Horse Still Win? (May 2nd, 2017) - Probably not. :) Tonight was the last night of regular-season bowling, and next week decides it all! As is stands now, Omaha Hambone would have to sweep and then win the roll-off in order to defeat the perennial champs. However, Hambone is currently 4-4 against the Uncles, only won one game when they last faced each other, and last enjoyed a sweep 4 weeks ago. Sure, they may pull off a huge upset, but it's looking quite unlikely. How did it come to this?

  • Mopping It Up (Apr 12th, 2017) - Tonight was a night of almost all sweeps, and saw a formerly near-last-place team barrel its way into the top half of the standings. Meanwhile the formerly first-place team became increasingly frustrated with their inability to regain the lead and it cost them their most precious commodity.

  • Getting Tighter (Mar 21st, 2017) - While the only position change in the standings tonight was a flip right in the very center of the lineup, the race for first place definitely became a lot more interesting as now only one game separates the top three teams. Who will have what it takes to come out ahead 7 weeks from now?

  • Halfway to the Pot o' Gold (Mar 14th, 2017) - Our season is now officially half over. Three teams are sliding along the downhill side of the rainbow towards the pot of gold, while everyone else is still back on the uphill slope, weighed down with too much corned beef and green beer

  • Gearing Up for the Position Round (Mar 7th, 2017) - The season is already nearly halfway over, and as we move into next week's position round the only shakeup in the standings is the surprise result of Frankee's Uncles no longer rolling on lanes 1-2 next week.

  • Fat Tuesday? Nah, It's Just a Beer Belly. (Feb 28th, 2017) - Tonight we had several bowlers off celebrating Mardis Gras, and for a while it seemed some of the lanes might take the night off as well. Luckily everything came together and we finished our games with little debauchery, no arrests, and no one getting run over.

  • Midterms Already? (Oct 13th, 2015) - With the position round already upon us, one bowler reached a new milestone, one bowler left us, and a "former" bowler returned to take his place.

  • Fall 2015 Preview: Milestones to Watch For (Aug 25th, 2015) -

  • Our Best Season Ever is History! (May 19th, 2015) -

  • Freda Finishes... First? (May 5th, 2015) - The championship ends the season wit the thinnest of win margins, the team that waS in last place most of the season opts to forfeit to regain their status, and an unlikely team was the first done bowling.

  • Bowlers On Fire! (Mar 10th, 2015) - A record high temperature inside the bowling alley wasn't the only record set tonight...

  • Nearly a Complete Reshuffle (Feb 10th, 2015) - With another week awaiting post-bowling scores, the full update cannot be calculated but it was pretty apparent that Week #4 action contained a lot of reshuffling of teams in the league standings...

  • The Cream Rises (Feb 3rd, 2015) - The same teams that sat atop the league standings last season are back at it after the results of Week #3. Big scores and even bigger series continue to be put up by the league as a whole as the 32-person roster currently sits at the 2nd best season of all time mark. Not a bad start, gang. Not a bad start at all.See how it all played out...

  • Battle Tested, Brunker Approved (Jan 27th, 2015) - With two weeks of the Spring 2015 season in the books, six – count 'em, SIX! – bowlers are currently carrying averages above the 200 mark. The number six also made its mark in the league standings this week as that number of teams swapped places. Did we also mention that Carl Goetz shot a 666 series? Spooky.Ready to get all the details? You know what to do...

  • Wasting No Time (Jan 20th, 2015) - The Spring 2015 session kicked off Tuesday night and Kody Karnes wasted absolutely no time at serving notice that his team looks to repeat as champions. Setting a 237 average, Karnes quickly re-established his team at the top of the heap.Can they keep it until the Finals in May? Only time will tell...

  • A New King is Crowned (Dec 10th, 2014) - Sixteen weeks ago 32-bowlers on 8 different teams started out all with the same record of zero wins and zero losses, scheduled to do battle with one another at least twice. Tuesday night saw the end results of those slugfests with the men of the brashly named 921+ walking away as the champions of the Fall 2014 season of GutterAlley action.Find out how the Finals went...

  • For Whom the Bell Tolls (Dec 2nd, 2014) - The Finals lineup is now set for the Fall 2014 season of GutterAlley, our 30th Finals since we started this crazy league back in late 1999. Look how far we have come: in the very first season, it was a rare occurrence if anyone shot a 200 game. Now, we have people that average that on a weekly basis. This season has also seen more 200+ games than ever before, a testament as to how much we've improved over the past decade and a half.

  • Turkeys Galore (Nov 25th, 2014) - Turkeys, turkeys, turkeys...damn, there were a LOT of turkeys thrown during GutterAlley action in Week #14. Currently on pace to see more 200+ games than any other season in league history, twenty-two games of 200+ were thrown by more than a third of the roster this week alone. The top two teams in the league remained tied atop of the heap with The Finals just a hop, skip, and a jump away. Let's do this...

  • Vets Battle on Veteran's Day (Nov 11th, 2014) - As the nation paid its respects to those who served our country in the armed forces, the bowlers in GutterAlley showed little to no respect to those with any affiliation as they jockeyed for wins before the Finals arrive next month. While only two teams switched spots in the league standings, gaps are starting to form in-between the various teams throughout setting up what is sure to be an interesting finish to the season.

  • He's Baaaaaaack (Nov 4th, 2014) - With baseball season finally over, perfect attendance was *almost* achieved as 31 of the league's 32 bowlers showed up to do battle Tuesday night. Net result? Six teams swapped places while several bowlers make their own personal history with their highest games and series to date.Needless to say it was quite a night in GutterAlley action...

  • 9...3...4 (Oct 28th, 2014) - For more than six years, the men of Ain't No Sh!T enjoyed sitting atop one of the most impressive league records of all-time – their 921 single game team output. Tuesday night, however, saw that score moved to 2nd place as four new guys moved to the top of that mountain after some stellar output...and climbing to within two games of the current league leaders.Can they catch them before the Finals? Only time will tell.

  • The Royals Treatment (Oct 21st, 2014) - Some big scores were rolled Tuesday night, including a 10-in-a-row Game #3 out of rookie Aaron Barber who ended his night with the 4th highest score ever shot in league history. Week #9 action cannot be fully reported yet, due to the current league leaders needing to post-bowl, but we're pretty sure Barber will come away with the story of the night.

  • The Midway Point (Oct 14th, 2014) - The position round took place Tuesday night and, with it, six of the team eight teams in the league swapped places. My Three Sons continues to hold tightly onto 1st place with their 5-game league. Can they maintain that throughout the second half? Only time will other teams are creeping up on them. A mere four games separate 2nd through 6th place. This will be an interesting second half of the Fall 2014 season for sure.

  • Sprinting into the Position Round (Oct 7th, 2014) - With the position round coming next week, teams put up their last ditch efforts in an attempt to better their spot within next week's matchup. Some big games and series were rolled as five teams switched spots in the league standings.

  • The Crickets Have Stopped (Sep 30th, 2014) - Better late than never, right? The results from Week #6 are now in and they include quite a few surprises...check 'em out.

  • Number One Sons (Sep 23rd, 2014) - My Three Sons continue to dominate the league with a clean sweep of the team with the most output in league history, led by Ian Goetz's very first 700+ series. Rob Kaszuba put up his first MVB of the season to bring Dixie Stampede out of the gutter. All in all, Week #4 action saw some big action.

  • Dixie Stampeded (Sep 16th, 2014) - This week only two teams managed to climb in the standings --- one of those scoring a major upset that shook up one end of the standings. Read on to learn the details...

  • Holding onto the Reigns (Sep 9th, 2014) - Despite a league record being shattered by the team right on their tail, My Three Sons – last season's reigning champs – refuse to relinquish control of 1st place for a second week in a row. Tentatively, five teams took over a new spot in the standings while we all wait for Split It & Hit It to complete their post-bowling.

  • The Second Week Shuffle (Sep 2nd, 2014) - Week #2 watched as nearly every team moved into a new spot in the league standings. Many averages rose while just as many fell from their initial week debuts but none moved as much as Matt Bunyard's this the details? You know what to do.

  • Big Beginnings (Aug 26th, 2014) - Despite the heat outside, the majority of the bowlers in the 30th season of GutterAlley action showed up to kick off the season. Four teams ended their night up 3-1 while the other four went home down 1-3. There's a long road to the Finals in December and we're just getting warmed up.

  • Welcome to the Fall 2014 Season! (Aug 26th, 2014) -

  • Best. Series. Ever. (May 6th, 2014) - While the big story of the night should be that Pinterest wrapped up the Spring 2014 championship, their feat was overshadowed by the incredible output from Kody Karnes and his 773 series – the highest output by a bowler over the course of our 29 seasons. The previous record of Don Glasscock's 770 series has stood since the Spring 2008 season. Congratulations to Jonathan Vigliaturo, Andy McLeod, Ian Goetz, and Seth Gunderson on their title but also to Kody Karnes for rolling one HELL of a series.

  • Cannon Fodder (Apr 29th, 2014) - And boom goes the dynamite as Week #14 action sees the league leaders increasing their margin over the rest of the league back up to 3.5 games heading into the final week of the regular season. The Finals are just around the corner on May 13th.Check out how the rest of the league stacks up...

  • Zeroing in on the Target (Apr 22nd, 2014) - With their grasp on the Spring '14 title becoming looser and looser, Pinterest suffered yet another set back in Week #13 action as their lead over the rest of the league – once +8 – has been reduced to only a game and a half with two weeks left in the regular season. The Finals may end up being a winner takes all affair if things continue on their current trajectory. Step inside and read how it all happened in this week's recap...

  • Tronned! (Apr 8th, 2014) - Pinterest had five weeks left to wrap up the championship crown but the rest of the league refuses to make it easy on them. Around the rest of the league, some big scores – and one REALLY big series – showed up as the Spring 2014 continues on.Check out how your favorite team did in this week's update...

  • Goetz It Done (Mar 25th, 2014) - Pinterest continues to extend their lead in the league standings as they now sit a full eight games out from second place. It's going to take some serious competition to derail the most energetic team this season from their steam rolling to the championship crown. Ian Goetz narrowly missed putting up his first 700 series as the boys continue to destroy all who stand in their way. Week #9 action is now in the books...

  • Position Round Robin (Mar 18th, 2014) - The Spring 2014 season is now halfway complete and Pinterest is laying claim to this season's crown. Having put up the 2nd best first half win record in league history, it's going to be their crown to lose as the season progresses. The position round is now in the books and, with it, four teams swapped places in the standings.Ready to find out who made moves during the position round?

  • Blue Skies for Gray (Mar 4th, 2014) - Week #6 was fraught with ups and downs as almost every single team found a new home in the league standings. Pinterest, however, continues to dominate the league with their impressive 21-3 start and are definitely the team to beat. On an individual basis, many bowlers put up big series and games this week including Sabrina Gray – who rolled her highest series ever. Congrats, Sabrina!

  • Powerful Pinterest (Feb 18th, 2014) - This week, two teams ended Week #4 action with records of 14-2. On their tails are two other teams sitting at 10-6. Next week, these four teams square off against one another (1st vs. 3rd, 2nd, vs. 4th) in an attempt to really switch things up. Find out what these teams did tonight to put themselves into those top four spots...

  • UpgrayeDD Upgrade (Feb 11th, 2014) - The temperatures outside of the bowling alley may have been below freezing but things were certainly hot inside as 21 bowlers raised their averages on the lanes during Week #3 action.Six teams swapped places on the league standings – none moreso than the men of UpgrayeDD who improved three spots – as the Spring 2014 season marches on.

  • Big Games, Big Averages to Start the Season (Jan 21st, 2014) - The 29th season of GutterAlley action got underway Tuesday night and saw some career high games shot by several individuals...on opening night.When will these people ever learn? They need to blatantly sandbag like Phil Schroeder did.

  • Welcome to the Spring 2014 Season! (Jan 20th, 2014) - Let's get this party started! Thirty-two bowlers – including three brand new rookies – will lace up their shoes this week to do battle for the next sixteen weeks. Now let's see some new high scores out there, gang!Good luck, gang...and welcome back!

  • It's All Over (Dec 4th, 2013) - Despite the Finals having been settled and decided last week, there was still one more night to make great things happen...and Chadwick Andrews did 'em all.Over the course of three games Andrews shot his career high game as well as series, secured his second consecutive night to be named Most Valuable Bowler and #1 Power Ranked Bowler, and concluded his evening by winning the Tournament of Champions. Not too bad of a way to finish one's season, eh?

  • Awards Renamed in Honor of Hall of Famers, Others (Dec 3rd, 2013) -

  • All Hail the Chumps, er, Champs! (Nov 27th, 2013) - The Finals will simply be a formality next week as the men of Bowltron – Bryan Mohr, Rob Kaszuba, John Boren, and Ryan Doll – wrapped it all up Tuesday night to become the Fall 2013 champions. It'll all be a battle for second place on down the standings as Bowltron will be simply be untouchable.

  • Almost to the Finish Line (Nov 19th, 2013) - There are only two more weeks left in the Fall 2013 season and wins are more crucial than ever for the few teams still in the hun to walk away the champions. Tuesday night's action righted the course for one team while it switched things up for three others as we draw closer and closer to the big matchups of the Finals.Week #14 saw some big series from some familiar faces in a season fraught with below average performances. Will this trend of high scores continue? Only time will tell...

  • Things are Getting Tighter (Nov 12th, 2013) - Time is ticking away in the Fall 2013 season and there are now four teams in contention for the title. With the Finals a mere three weeks away, this session of GutterAlley action is still up for grabs amongst half the league. It's now just a question of who wants it the most.Week #13 tightened the distance between those teams with only two teams changing places at all. Check out the recap to see where everyone sits...

  • The Help (Nov 5th, 2013) - The Finals are now only four weeks away and the huge lead held by Bowltron over everyone else in recent weeks has all but evaporated with three other team easily within striking distance. The big difference in Week #12's action came from teams collectively firing away and helping to chip away at their opponents. Ready to read this week's recap? You know what to do...

  • Chopping Away (Oct 30th, 2013) - The league continues to chop away at the lead that Bowltron has held on the league standings for quite some time, this week narrowing that gap to a mere three games. With the Finals a little over a month away, wins are going to be come more precious going forward. Will anyone catch 'em before it's too late? It's looking that way.Now get in there and see how everyone did...

  • The Battle for Second Place? (Oct 15th, 2013) - Bowltron is now a full eight games ahead of the rest of the league now in Week #9 as they continue their seemingly unstoppable march to the Finals.

  • 3-1 or 1-3, Take Your Pick (Oct 8th, 2013) - The midway point of the Fall 2013 season has been reached and with it came all four matchups ending at 3-1. The current league leaders have built and impressive gap between themselves and the rest of the league setting up an interesting second half.

  • Blake & Split It Nearly Blank Reigning Champs (Oct 1st, 2013) - Week #7 closed the book on each team facing one another once and paved the way for the position round next week. Dennis Blake put on a clinic to propel his team to a .500 record, earning both MVB and #1 Power Ranked Bowler honors...

  • Yabba Dabba Doo-ing Little (Sep 24th, 2013) - The midway point of the Fall 2013 season is quickly approaching and one team is trying to make a break for superiority amidst a league that has been underperforming since Week #1...

  • Back and Forth (Sep 17th, 2013) - Six teams moved places in the league standings, there were hardly any 200s, teams continue to bowl like crap but are still handed wins, and Grand Theft Auto 5 came out so this week's recap is pretty damn sparse.

  • Gutterfingered! (Sep 11th, 2013) - Week #4 showcased some upsets that were certainly not in line with predictions churned out via ScooterMath...highlighted with a stunning sweep by the Gutterfingers. Bryan Mohr continues to impress as he learns the nuances of a new bowling ball which he used to earn yet another #1 Power Ranked Bowler performance for a second week in a row. Rounding out the night were the results of the initial week of the Tournament of Champions. Ready to hear how everything went down? Well then, click away...

  • Huge Bewbies (Sep 4th, 2013) - The scores from Week #3 across the league were a vast improvement from how the Fall 2013 session got underway...but no one put up team numbers like Bewbie Dance. With one of their teammates coming away with MVB honors, the team made a huge reversal of fortune from their outcome last week. Get in there and read all about it, why dontcha?!?

  • Blake Busts Out (Aug 27th, 2013) - Week #2 works its magic once again by making every single team trade places with one another in the league standings. Averages also swung wildly as more than a third of the league saw their numbers decrease while less than ten managed to raise theirs after last week's debut. Buckle up, gang...this season is going to be a fun one.

  • Free Fallin' (Aug 20th, 2013) - Over the course of the next several months, eight teams will do battle in the quest to secure this season's championship title. With a lot of last season's bowlers returning, the rivalries picked right back up Tuesday night as GutterAlley kicked off its 28th season. Ready? Set...GO!

  • Welcome to the Fall 2013 Season! (Aug 19th, 2013) - And we're back on the air as of Tuesday, August 20th. Thirty-two bowlers – including three brand new rookies and one former sub officially joining the league – will lace up their shoes this week to do battle for the next sixteen weeks.Good luck, gang...and welcome back!

  • Corporate Challenge? Owned. (Jun 15th, 2013) - Corporate Challenge took place on Saturday, June 15th with 11 members of our league showing up to our usual Tuesday haunt to not do battle for MVBs, #1 Power Rankings, or even money...but for medals. Collectively we walked away with ten of them.

  • Spring 2013: And the winner is... (May 22nd, 2013) - The Spring 2013 Fun Night closed out the season with an awards ceremony announcing the winners of the individual achievements, season favorites, and the newest addition to the GutterAlley Hall of Fame...

  • Back in the Saddle Again (May 14th, 2013) - The Spring 2013 season came to an ending with Will Strike if Provoked sitting atop the league standings a full five games ahead of the rest of the competition after a survival of the fittest Finals showdown. Congratulations to returning league champions Dennis "Pops" Laube, Freda Schroeder, Phil Schroeder, and Aubrey Moren!

  • The 11th Frame – Week 15, Spring 2013 (May 13th, 2013) -

  • The Stage is All Set (May 7th, 2013) - The stage is all set for a Finals week showdown between the lone two contenders – Will Strike if Provoked and Dragon Balls. The winners of the Spring 2013 season will be crowned in a do-or-die matchup next week between these two teams with the Dragon Balls having absolutely no room for error. Four wins and the crown is loss, and Will Strike if Provoked walks off with the title. It's gonna be a fun one...but, for now, let's see how everyone else did.

  • The 11th Frame – Week 13, Spring 2013 (Apr 26th, 2013) -

  • Breaking Away? (Apr 23rd, 2013) - The Finals are three weeks away and one team has started to separate themselves from the rest of the pack with their eye on the title. While various scenarios are still possible, momentum seems to be on the side of the former championship team that last won it all just last Spring. Can they be stopped or are they simply breaking away?Also this week – a slumping vet turns his season around and earns #1 Power Ranked Bowler honors in the process, a quiet bowler puts on the first MVB performance of her career, and the league shatters the all-time record for most 200+ games in a single season. What a week!

  • Three Up, Two Down (Apr 16th, 2013) - With huge outputs across the league all season from the same handful of bowlers, the biggest performances during Week #12 came from unlikely sources. This week's Most Valuable Bowler nearly put up the best series of her career to keep her team tied with the best record in the league while this week's #1 Power Ranked Bowler put on a clinic against the league's former 1st place team, sending them down in the standings. Ready to find out who all did what? Read on...

  • The 11th Frame – Week 11, Spring 2013 (Apr 12th, 2013) -

  • All Knotted Up (Apr 9th, 2013) - After all was said and done this week in GutterAlley action, three teams found themselves sharing the best record in the league at 27-17. The Finals are just a little over a month away and these teams have at least one matchup against one another coming up which will certainly make for a fun finish.Ready to find out how your favorite team did? Let's go, then...

  • Challenge Accepted (Apr 2nd, 2013) - Anyone not casting their vote at the end of this season for Kody Karnes to be named Rookie of the Season is absolutely kidding themselves. Putting together three consecutive 200+ games Tuesday night, Karnes rolled this season's fourth 700+ series – and the league's 21st – and raised his average to an even 200. Not too bad for a debut bowler. Curious how everyone else fared? Good...

  • He’s Baaaaaaaaaaaack! (Mar 26th, 2013) - What do you get when you cross Steve Kiernan and a 2+ month absence from the bowling league? Why, a 700+ series...that's what! The impressive output from Steve keeps the team he subbed for firmly in first place while only one team in the league managed to find themselves upward bound in the first week of GutterAlley action after last week's position round. Ready to see how the rest of the league stacked up? Hop to it, then...

  • The 11th Frame – Week 8, Spring 2013 (Mar 21st, 2013) -

  • Arkansas Ass Kickin' (Mar 19th, 2013) - Almost not showing this week, Bill Krejci – the anchor of the appropriately named Murder, He Wrote – arrived fashionably late to deliver an incredible performance in this season's position round to propel his team to a mere half-game out of first place. A new team took over the top spot in the league standings, Mark DeVoe was this week's Most Valuable Bowler, and the league as a whole is more than half way to breaking a long-standing record. Get your GutterAlley on, y'all...

  • The More Things Change... (Mar 13th, 2013) - The league is almost officially half over now that everyone has done battle with one another. The position round comes our way next week but this week's matchup results brought something we haven't seen in quite some time – the top five spots in the league standings are separated by a mere two games. Ready to find out how this all went down? Check it out.

  • The 11th Frame: Week 5, Spring 2013 (Feb 21st, 2013) -

  • One Pin Ken (Feb 20th, 2013) - The record for the highest series ever thrown in GutterAlley's history has stood since Week 6 of the Spring 2008 session, when Don Glasscock put up a 770 series. While it still stands as the best, one lousy pin kept Ken M. Wilson from not only throwing a perfect game but also from creating a score that would have bested Don's series. Week #5 is now you know where your favorite team stands?

  • Up, Up, and Away (Feb 12th, 2013) - Superman and Wonder Woman were in the building Tuesday night, on multiple lanes, as the league saw some huge output across the board. An astounding eighteen games of 200+ were thrown in what is shaping up to be one of the highest output seasons in league history...nine by the chumps pictured here.

  • Fo'to Finish (Feb 5th, 2013) - So after three weeks of bowling, four teams – count 'em, 1-2-3-4 – all have the exact same record. Apparently 8-4 is what all the cool kids are amassing after nine games (and total pins) these days. Regardless, the perfect storm of outcomes came to life to create the four-way tie. Ready to see who rolled what to create this jumble? Let's go, then...

  • The 11th Frame: Week 2, Spring 2013 (Jan 30th, 2013) -

  • Murder, They Wrote (Jan 29th, 2013) - The second week of GutterAlley action is now in the history books and one team has raced out to a 7-1 record to lead the league. Angela Lansbury would be proud...

  • The 11th Frame: Week 1, Spring 2013 (Jan 28th, 2013) -

  • Colossal Debuts (Jan 23rd, 2013) - The Spring 2013 season got underway Tuesday night and a good portion of the league forgot that you're not supposed to bowl lights out and set big averages on the first night. Ian Goetz, pictured, was the biggest ignorer of this time honored tradition.Want to see just how well people shot in Week #1? Well, read on...

  • Welcome to the Spring 2013 Season! (Jan 22nd, 2013) - The 27th season of GutterAlley action gets back underway but before all of the swearing, drinking, and in-fighting begin we thought we'd officially welcome you all back...

  • Fall 2012: And the winner is... (Dec 18th, 2012) - Mr. 300 himself – David Codding – was named this season's inductee into the GutterAlley Hall of Fame, becoming the 7th bowler to enter as the Fall 2012 season officially came to an end Tuesday night. Prize money was handed out to everyone during the semi-annual Fun Night. The winners for the individual achievements as well as the top picks for the season favorites were announced as the gang enjoyed a round of 9-pin tap and the various traditional trick shot challenges.

  • You Can't Top FTOP (Dec 11th, 2012) - It took until the very last roll of their matchup, but a new championship team was crowned on Tuesday night as the Finals went down to conclude the Fall 2012 season of GutterAlley action...Congrats to John Boren, Cory Chorpenning, David Codding, and Ken M. Wilson!

  • Tentative Turkeys (Nov 20th, 2012) - Thanksgiving is just around the corner...and so are the Finals. One team has opted to post bowl this week so the true standings, MVB, #1 Power Ranked bowler, and Tournament of Champions results cannot be completely calculated just yet. Want to see what did transpire, though? You've come to the right place.

  • We've Got Big Ballz (Nov 13th, 2012) - Ballz Out proved, once again, that when they are scheduled to bowl whichever team is in first place they are THE team to be feared. Cliff Barendsen torched his opponents and sent them packing after their short lived tenure at the top of the league standings with yet another incredible performance. How did the rest of the league standings shape up? Let's get onto that write-up, shall we?

  • The Dark Knight Rises (Nov 7th, 2012) - For the third time this season, another team has taken over the top spot on the league standings. The Pocket Pounders have been cutting into the lead for weeks now and finally reached the zenith. Can they hold on for five more weeks through the Finals? Only time will tell...

  • Missed it by THAT Much... (Oct 9th, 2012) - Last week, David Codding rolled a perfect game. This week, Carl Goetz fell one pin shy of joining Codding in perfection after rolling eleven strikes in a row but ending with a 299. Other bowlers around the league also had big games and huge series. What's going on with these guys...and can they share it with the rest of us?!?See that pin? Carl HATES that pin.Dive into this week's writeup...

  • They Didn't Split It, They Hit It (Sep 11th, 2012) - Week #3 is now in the books and with it came some surprises across the league: the last place team upset the first place team; two bowlers shot over 250+ while another shot over 240; several seemingly-impossible splits were picked up; and, in the end, several games were settled by the slimmest of margins. Ahh, GutterAlley...bring me the scoop!

  • Three is a Magic Number (Aug 29th, 2012) - The new season. Eight teams. 32 bowlers. Initial week results? 3-1 for four teams, 1-3 for the others. Nothing like consistency to get things started, eh?The highlight of the night, though, was seeing Rob Kaszuba receiving his surprise replacement bowling ball after a mishap over the summer that destroyed his regular ball. Thanks to everyone who pitched in on the gift!

  • Welcome to the Fall 2012 Season! (Aug 22nd, 2012) - The Fall 2012 session of the VML Bowling League kicks off on Tuesday, August 28th. We're returning to 4-man teams vying for the championship title over the course of 16 nights on the lanes. Before we get started, we wanted to welcome our newest recruits and explain what they can expect in the league...

  • BAROOOOOOO-tiful (Apr 17th, 2012) - In the battle for second place, Black Belt Jones did something that no other team has been able to do this entire season – walk away the victor in a matchup against back-to-back league champions, The Turkey Hunters. And, tentatively, though no teams really moved up or down in the standings, every game won means more money in each teams' envelopes at the end of the season so teams aren't letting up as the conclusion of the Spring 2012 session nears...

  • V for Victory (Apr 11th, 2012) -

  • Every Pin Counts (Apr 3rd, 2012) - We've said it before and we'll say it again...every pin counts. With several games settled Tuesday night by the smallest of numbers – one even settled by a single pin – the smallest of missteps during the contest can come back to haunt you when all is said and done. Week 12 saw wins and losses settled in the 10th frame, big performances from some likely and unlikely sources, and next to no movement in the league standings. Ready to hear all about it? Let's get it on, then.

  • The Beard Man Cometh (Mar 28th, 2012) - Barring a miracle, the reigning champions have all but wrapped up their second winning season as they continue to lay waste to any and all teams they face on the lanes. With that, it's now simply a battle for second place as the league marches on towards the Finals on May 1st...and Jonathan Vigliaturo plans to be that team as he continues to improve weekly.

  • Still Some Fight in 'Em (Updated!) (Mar 20th, 2012) - The family rivalry continues as mother hen Freda Schroeder and her Turkey Hunters continue to crush all who face them while son Carl Goetz and daughter Angela Bradford of Strange Bedfellows strive to narrow the gap between the two teams. With only a month and a half left of league bowling, is there enough time to make up the difference? Many think that the Bedfellows should just go to bed...but maybe they still have some fight in 'em.Ready to find out how this week went down? Let's go.

  • Ready, Set, Restart! (Mar 14th, 2012) - With the position round behind the league now, the schedule begins anew with a repeat of the first seven weeks of the season. Did history repeat itself this time around? Not quite, as several teams exacted revenge against their Week #1 opponents in a quest to move up in the league standings. Ready for the second half? So are we...

  • Two Records in One (Feb 22nd, 2012) - Personal bests left and right – high games as well as high series. Scores big enough to earn spots on a number of Top 25 lists as well as one in the top five all-time records in league history. One team even tied the biggest output from a 5-person team Tuesday night. What the hell has gotten into all of these people?!?

  • Oh, Bowling...I Love You! (Feb 14th, 2012) - Valentine's Day is typically a time in which you spend your evening with your true love. Such was the case with the faithful as they took the lanes to rekindle a romance with high scores. Love is a fickle creature and, just like in real life, some managed to find bliss. Unlike love, however, people were thrilled when they struck out. Ready to find out how everyone did as they aimed for the lane's arrows rather than expecting Cupid's?

  • Big Games, Big Series (Feb 7th, 2012) - Several bowlers notched their all-time personal bests during Week #4, including one game that looked to be on pace to take the all-time league record. In the end, only one team managed to sweep their opponents and extend their hold onto the top spot in the league standings.The Tournament of Champions is also off and running in our first official season of running it from the start. Enough of this jibber jabber, let's see how everyone did...

  • The Blue and the Gray (Jan 24th, 2012) - Week #2 of GutterAlley's 25th season is now in the history books and with it came some rather impressive performances from what some would consider unlikely sources. Tuesday night also saw the official debuts of some new rookies including Chris Klee, Alexandra Avila, and Sarah West as well as new subs Kris Karnes and Matt Hile. Welcome to the league, gang!Ready to find out how everyone did? We thought so...

  • The Party is Underway (Jan 17th, 2012) - Tuesday say the official kickoff of the 25th season in GutterAlley's history. This time around, 40 different bowlers across 8 teams will do battle for 16 weeks in a quest to come away with the championship title in the Spring 2012 session.So how did everyone do in their initial outing? Let's find out, shall we?

  • Welcome to the Spring 2012 Session! (Jan 15th, 2012) - The Spring 2012 session of the VML Bowling League kicks off on Tuesday, January 17th. This time around we'll have eight 5-man teams vying for the championship title over the course of 16 nights on the lanes.

  • And the winner is... (Dec 21st, 2011) - Carl Goetz became the 5th bowler to be inducted into the GutterAlley Hall of Fame on Tuesday, capping off the Fall 2011 Fun Night. The winners of the Season Favorites were also announced along with the other various season-ending awards. Ready to find out who all was chosen? Read on, then, dammit!

  • The Big Finish (Dec 13th, 2011) - What a whirlwind finish to the Fall 2011 season – Ryan Doll shoots a 700+ series, 5 out of the eight teams swapped places in the league standings, and several people rolled their all time personal best games and series including this week's Most Valuable Bowler Eric Summers. Not a bad way to end it all, eh?

  • Futility for the Finals (Dec 6th, 2011) - Freda Schroeder, Phil Schroeder, Dennis "Pops" Laube, and Aubrey Moren finished what they set out to do this season – winning a championship. Besting all other teams en route to the season's best record, No Pinheads were crowned the Fall 2011 champions a full week before the Finals. How's that for a finish?As it turns out, every single team will face the team they faced this week in the Finals. Again, how's THAT for a finish? And, anyone have any idea why Pops looks like he's constipated in their championship photo to the left?

  • Two Games Away (Nov 29th, 2011) - The members of No Pinheads have been in first place since Week #4. Here we are in Week #14 and they are only two games away from ending any doubt as to which team will come away with the championship crown in the Fall 2011 season. Only two weeks remain and, with only one team even able to knock them out, things are looking pretty good for them. Not a single team managed to move up or down this week, despite some stellar games from a few individuals. Ready to hear how everyone did? Let's go, then...

  • NEW FEATURE: The Over/Under Factor (Nov 23rd, 2011) -

  • Happy Thanks-taking! (Nov 22nd, 2011) - Later this week, many of us will enjoy a feast with our loved ones over a wonderful dinner. Tuesday night, however, three teams in our league made meals out of their opponents on the lanes to begin their holiday week. With one team still waiting to find the results of their matchup due to their competition opting to post-bowl early next week, as it stands at the moment not a single team moved up or down in the league standings. Will this change once the final scores are tallied? We'll have to wait and see...

  • The Lad and the Legend (Nov 8th, 2011) - Nine different bowlers hoisted games in the 200+ range Tuesday night but, despite the heavy hittings of the pins, only two teams managed to swap places in the league standings. Despite the moves, the gaps in-between teams have shrunk setting the stage for a fun final month of the Fall 2011 season. Can league leaders No Pinheads hold onto first place for the remainder of the season? Only time will tell.And who the hell let Pat Searcy into NKC Pro Bowl?!? Find out why in this week's update...

  • Maintaining the Status Quo (Nov 2nd, 2011) - Week #10 had big games...big series...big wins. And yet, hardly anything changed in the league standings. With the Finals a mere six weeks away, if someone plans to challenge the current standings leaders they best make their move soon before it's too late.

  • Still On Top (Oct 25th, 2011) - No Pinheads continues to sit atop the standings, a full eight games ahead of the rest of the league. In the Spring 2008 session, these same four bowlers wrapped up their season as league champions. They seem to be on pace to finish on top but the rest of the league has other plans. Is it too late to catch them or is the fun just getting started? Ready to find out how everything went down this week? Let's get it on.

  • Compromising Position Round (Oct 18th, 2011) - The Fall 2011 season is now half over and, with the position round behind us, the stage has been set for an epic second half. With the league now sensing that No Pinheads can be ousted from the top of the league standings, it's now just a matter of time before some team rises to the occasion to do just that. The second half belongs to anyone and it's now just a matter of watching how it all unfolds. Game on.

  • Three is a Magic Number (Oct 11th, 2011) - Week #7 saw the top half of the league face off against one another, with no teams allowing anyone to wrest them of their current spots, while the bottom half of the league all exchanged spots. Will this prove to be good or bad as we move into the position round next week? Only time will tell...

  • The Untouchables (Oct 5th, 2011) - Like several seasons before, No Pinheads has dominated the first half of the season. Will this be the season that they can keep up this pace and carry it all the way through the Finals? Seven other teams have plans to derail them on their quest. With the position round just around the corner, there's no telling how things will shape up as the season continues.

  • Constant Focus (Sep 27th, 2011) - Week #5 wrapped up Tuesday night and, with it, five different teams swapped places in the league standings. Second through sixth place shuffled with the biggest move in the positive belonging to Kitten Mittons, compliments of an outstanding performance by this Ryan Simonet...

  • STFU, Johnny! (Sep 13th, 2011) - Week #3 is now in the history books and the standings have once again reshuffled with nearly every team moving into a new spot. Big games brought big wins for two teams who now find themselves sitting atop the league with a record of 9-3. Will these two teams meet in the Finals? Only time will tell.Ready to find out how your favorite team did this week? Well, let's go...

  • And So It Begins... (Aug 23rd, 2011) - Eight teams.Thirty-two bowlers. Sixteen weeks. Three hundred eighty-four games.One championship crown. Who wants it the most? Only time will tell...

  • Welcome to the Fall Session! (Aug 16th, 2011) - It's almost that time, ladies and gents (and Scoot)! The Fall 2011 session of the VML Bowling League kicks off on Tuesday, August 23rd. Once again we'll have eight 4-man teams vying for the championship title over the course of 16 nights on the lanes. Before we get started, we wanted to welcome our newest recruits and explain what they can expect in the league...

  • Fall 2011: Time to Pick Teams! (Aug 4th, 2011) -

  • Fall Recruitment (Jul 29th, 2011) - Starting back on August 23rd, the twenty-fourth season of the VML Bowling League will get underway.

  • Corporate Challenge: Silver and Bronze (Jun 20th, 2011) -

  • And Summer Break Begins... (May 24th, 2011) - The Spring 2011 season is now officially over and with it came the Fun Night complete with the prize fund payouts, season favorite award winners and the induction of the first four bowlers into the GutterAlley Hall of Fame.

  • Hard Fought Finals (May 17th, 2011) - The 23rd season of the VML Bowling League has come to a conclusion with S*I*C*K winning the top spot in the standings. The outcome from the Finals was very much lop-sided with only half of the league coming up with wins as four – count 'em, FOUR! – sweeps were dished out on the last night of league bowling. Talk about a big finish.Ready to find out how your favorite team performed? Let's go.

  • Analysis: Season Favorites (May 17th, 2011) -

  • Introducing the Hall of Famers (May 15th, 2011) - With bowlers throughout the league's entire history casting their votes over the past two months, the members of the GutterAlley's Hall of Fame inaugural class have been selected. Congratulations to Angela Bradford, Scott Murdock, Freda Schroeder and Ken M. Wilson on their upcoming inductions.

  • Get 'er Done (May 10th, 2011) - A western-theme washed over Week 15 as the bowlers of GutterAlley showed up to find the NKC Pro-Bowl packed with hundreds of cowboys and cowgirls enjoying a company party. This merely set the stage as the shootouts began to gain some ground in the last week of regular season bowling before the Finals next week. While no teams actually exchanged places in the league standings, ground was gained by several teams in preparation for the last week to earn more money in the prize fund envelopes.

  • A Decisive Rout (May 3rd, 2011) - Faced with the very real possibility that their grasp on first place could be taken away from them, the men of S*I*C*K rose to the occasion with their highest output in quite some time to crush closest opponents Dolls and Balls. Just behind them, teams added more wins to their record in preparation for the position round styled Finals where teams will bowl their closest competitors. Did S*I*C*K clinch the title this week? Read on...

  • Hangin' Tough (Apr 26th, 2011) - Look! Up in the sky! It's a bird, it's a plane, it's...Dolls and Balls. With the team firing on all four cylinders after a season of ups and downs, Dolls and Balls looks poised to be the team to beat at the moment. While the rest of the league knocks around – albeit with league leaders S*I*C*K still adding more wins to their record each week – Dolls and Balls stands on the brink of taking over first place if they can continue their momentum heading into the last few weeks before the Finals. These last few weeks could create quite a bit of drama...

  • Big Games, Big Wins (Apr 19th, 2011) - Something was definitely in the water (or beer) during Week 12 as numerous big games came out of seemingly nowhere to bring about some much needed victories. With the Finals less than a month away, it's now or never if teams are going to propel themselves higher up in the standings en route to the title. Heeding that call, several teams rose to the occasion and added more notches in their win columns against some pretty tough competition. S*I*C*K continues to lead all teams, but is their time at the top coming to an end? We'll certainly know here in the next couple of weeks...

  • Bunch of Yo-Yos (Apr 5th, 2011) - Life is filled with ups and downs and the wins, losses and scores from Week #10 in the VML Bowling league certainly reflected that Tuesday night. First and second place took a beating from the 5th and 3rd place teams respectively while individual bowlers across the entire league shot well over or well under their averages. Despite all of these wild swings, the standings remained relatively stable with only two teams swapping places this week. The Finals are only a month and a half away so who knows where we'll be this time next week if this trend continues.Ready to get your Duncan on?

  • Momentum? No-mentum! (Mar 29th, 2011) - As the second half of the Spring 2011 season got underway Tuesday evening, teams began their 7-week tour of duty to face off against everyone once again with The Finals now less than two months away. The results of this week were somewhat surprising, with teams that performed well in the position round last week unable to carry forward that momentum. Ready to see how everyone rolled? Let's check it out...

  • Chip Off the Old Block (Feb 22nd, 2011) - We're now a month into the league and the league standings are offering up some surprises. While S*I*C*K continues to distance themselves from everyone else, there's been quite the shakeup in the teams in the 2nd through 4th place spots. Several powerhouse teams continue to struggle while other teams savor the sweet nectar of victory at their expense. This week's breakout performance easily goes to Ian Goetz, pictured to the left. Rolling his all-time personal best game and series, Goetz one-upped his father and teammate Carl for the first time all season. Good rolling definitely runs in the family.Ready to see how everyone did?

  • Let Them Eat Pins (Feb 15th, 2011) - The league's third week is now in the books and with it comes half the teams possessing a winning record, providing our first glimpse at true diversity in the standings. While the two teams that met in the Finals two seasons ago continue to remain at the top, Eat Split and DI made quite an impressive leap up into 3rd place after routing No Pinheads Tuesday night behind a great performance from this week's Most Valuable Bowler, AJ Hofmann.Ready to find out how everyone did? Well, let's dive in...

  • WIN-ter Wonderland (Feb 8th, 2011) - While even more snow fell onto the Greater Kansas City area, the rollers of the VML Bowling League were making pins fall as Week #2 got underway. No one made more pin topple Tuesday than Carl Goetz, pictured on the left. After all was said and done, the same two teams remain tied atop the league standings while the rest of the league tightened up enough where 1.5 games separate 3rd through 8th place.Ready to find out how your favorite teams performed? Let's go, then...

  • The Race Begins (Jan 25th, 2011) - With eight teams in the race to win the Spring 2011 championship, the battles are underway with two teams coming away with a perfect 4-0 start. Along with that, we've already witnessed the first tie of the season with two teams experiencing gridlock in their very first game of their matchup. Who knows what other mishaps will take place over the next 4+ months but all we know is that the 23rd season is underway and we're glad to be back.

  • Time to Pick Teams (Jan 11th, 2011) - Two weeks from today, the next session of the VML Bowling League starts up. With that looming on the horizon, 'tis time to pick teams.Want to find out which teams are already fully-formed? Well, check it out...

  • It's 2011: Open Recruitment! (Jan 3rd, 2011) - The 2011 Spring league is now forming. We're aiming to have a full 40-person roster and spaces are filling up rather nicely in order to meet our goal. We still need some more people, though. The next session begins on Tuesday, January 25th at the NKC Pro Bowl in North Kansas City, Missouri.Are you interested in bowling? If so, please let us know.

  • Happy Holidays! (Dec 15th, 2010) - The Fall 2010 bowling season officially came to a conclusion Tuesday night with the disbursement of the prize fund and individual awards. The final results of the season favorite awards were also announced. Congratulations to all of the winners!The next session of the league will begin on Tuesday, January 25th. Hope to see you there!

  • The Kansas City 49ers (Dec 7th, 2010) - The 22nd session of the VML Bowling League has come to a close with 3/4ths of last season's title winners repeating as champions. A late surge by Ground Zero Mosque in the Finals managed to propel them into 2nd place while this week's Most Valuable Bowler rolled his highest game ever to cap off the evening.Ready to find out how everyone did in the Finals? Good. Let's light this candle, then...

  • It's a Wrap! Finals Next Week (Nov 30th, 2010) - This season's powerhouse team proved to be the Pin Pricks as they clinched the title one week before the Finals. Congratulations to Ian Goetz, Carl Goetz, David Codding and Ken M. Wilson for winning the 2010 Fall season of the VML Bowling League. While the rest of the league spread themselves out quite a bit on the second to last week of bowling, the teams in 2nd and 3rd place end up with a mere half of a game separating one another.The season's individual achievements reached an ending as well with eight bowlers lined up to receive additional money in their envelopes at the end of the season. Want to find out who garnered the extra green? Read on...

  • Serving Up Turkeys (Nov 23rd, 2010) - On a week where it is customary to give thanks for what we have, the teams of the VML Bowling League thanked one another by handing out turkeys -- either in the form of three strikes in a row or handing out victories to their opponents. The top three teams in the league have an opportunity over these two final weeks to move into the all-time record books for compiling some of the best win percentages in league history. Can they all three make it or will they stumble? We'll know in two weeks when the Fall season comes to a close.

  • Go For It (Nov 16th, 2010) - Week 13 saw the largest shakeup in the league standings in quite some time with three teams swapping places after all was said and done. Bowl Movement, after last week's set back, got right back on the horse and galloped up from 6th to 4th place with their sights on climbing even higher before the season ends. With the Finals just a mere three weeks away on December 7th, will they continue their meteoric rise or will the teams ahead of them in the standings hold onto their respective spots? Only time will tell...

  • Scoot'ing Right Along (Nov 9th, 2010) - French novelist Alphonse Karr coined the expression "the more things change, the more they stay the same." Such is the case, for the most part, in the VML Bowling League's standings for yet another week. While two teams did manage to swap places, the real story comes with the bowlers of Ground Zero Mosque. Having amassed a record of 11-5 since the position round, they continue to gain ground on the top teams in the league. Is it too late in the season for them to reach the top?

  • The Mighty Mosques (Nov 2nd, 2010) - As the league moves into the month of November, there is still little movement in the league standings. However, the distance between the teams is radically changing. The first place team continues to distance themselves from the rest of the pack while the rest of the league tightens up around the middle. For the second week in a row, third place Ground Zero Mosque gains ground in the standings as they inch closer to overtaking 2nd place No Pinheads. With only five weeks remaining until the Finals, will these same teams remain in their respective spots or will there be a shakeup? Only time will tell...

  • She Gives Me Vict'ries When I'm In Need (Oct 19th, 2010) - As the season's schedule restarts itself, each team faced a familiar opponent. Barring the outcome of the post-bowling matchup between the Pin Pricks and Feed the Monkey, every team that rolled Tuesday night met with radically different results than their initial meeting back in August. Despite the wins and losses, only had two teams swapped places in the league standings.Ready to see how everyone did? Read on...

  • The Monkeys Are Feeding (Oct 6th, 2010) - With the position round coming up, you'd think that there would be a big shakeup in the standings as teams jockeyed for better positions. Such was not the case on Week #7 when no team changed places whatsoever although various teams improved their leads heading into the big showdown. We here at think that the true shifts will come about the next time the league meets. One team, however, managed to quadruple their win record in a single night. Impressive, eh?Want to see how everyone performed? You've come to the right place...

  • Slowly Chipping Away (Sep 28th, 2010) - Having led the league since Week #2, the bowlers of No Pinheads found their lead cut down to a single game after narrowly taking a 3-1 victory over Bowl Movement this week. A two pin victory in Game #2 keeps them atop of the league standings...but with three other teams within striking distance of over taking the #1 spot, can they hold onto it long enough to win the title?Find out how everyone did in Week #6...

  • Goetz On Up (Sep 21st, 2010) - Five weeks into the season and the league is starting to show signs that standings leaders No Pinheads may soon be vacating the #1 spot they've held for a month straight now. With an outstanding performance by the Pin Pricks' Carl Goetz along with solid output from Kitten Mittons, Ground Zero Mosque and Bowl Movement, only 5 games separate the top six teams. With the position round due up in three weeks, things could get rather interesting rather quickly...

  • Ups and Downs, Ins and Outs (Sep 7th, 2010) - During Week #3, some things stayed the same – No Pinheads still remain the team to beat – while some thing radically changed. After a forgettable Week #2, one bowler managed to completely reverse his team's fortunes with a powerful performance to earn this week's MVB nod while pushing them into third place. On the flip side, Feed the Monkey and Ground Zero Mosque took a brutal beating at the hands of their competitors. Want the full scoop? Read on...

  • NEW FEATURE: Power Rankings (Sep 3rd, 2010) -

  • Movin’ On Up (Aug 31st, 2010) - With two weeks of bowling in the books, the teams of the VML Bowling League have once again played musical chairs in the standings. The members of No Pinheads have pushed themselves above the rest of the heap with an impressive 7-1 record while other teams in the league continue to find their team chemistry. The second week of the league is always a tumultuous one as bowlers adjust to their Week #1 averages and typically bowl way over or way under their scores from seven days before. Who brought the power on this particular Tuesday? Well, read on...

  • And They're Off...! (Aug 24th, 2010) - The 22nd season of the VML Bowling League officially begins tonight. With only seven teams signed up, this is the smallest crew we've had since the Fall 2002 season. The Finals are a full four months away. Which two teams will end up facing one another in the championship matchup? Rest assured, returning champions Ian Goetz, Carl Goetz and Ken M. Wilson will do their best to defend their crown and return to the Finals but with several brand new teams in the mix, it's anyone's guess as to who will emerge victorious. So, without further adieu, let's get this party started!
