A listing (from most current to furthest back) of any write-up posts in which Orion has been mentioned:
  • 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.

  • V for Victory (Apr 11th, 2012) -

  • 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.

  • 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?!?

  • 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!

  • 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...

  • Obviously You're Not a Golfer (Nov 15th, 2011) - Only three more weeks or regular season bowling remain before the eight teams of the Fall 2011 season march into the Finals. Theoretically, any one of four teams could come away with the crown but time is quickly running out. While none of those teams exchanged places in the league standings, the gaps in-between them have tightened setting up these last few weeks for quite a showdown.Two surprising and outstanding performances came to light Tuesday night with Sarah Sauer and Kelly Sands earning #1 Power Ranked Bowler and MVB nods respectively. How did everyone do, though? Let's find out...

  • 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.

  • Orion Win-kaid! (Sep 20th, 2011) - Week #4 is now in the record books and with it came six of the eight teams in the league switching places in the standings. Orion Kinkaid put on the performance of the season thus far, earning both MVB and #1 Power Ranked Bowler status. A third team has now ascended to the top of the league and we're only a quarter of the way through the season. The Fall 2011 session is truly a wild one, that's for sure...

  • 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...

  • 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. There are 32 spots that need to be filled and we're cruising right along. Interested in either being on the list or seeing who has already signed up? Check it out...

  • 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. The next season of the league will start up in late August for those of you interested.Ready for all the details from the Fun Night? Well let's go...

  • 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) -

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • Rally of the Dolls (Apr 12th, 2011) - When the league began, Ryan Doll claimed that his team this season was "just for fun." Throw in unexpected arm surgery on his bowling arm and a roster member that has been there only once during the 11 weeks of the season so far, you'd think that they wouldn't be ranked that high in the league standings. Well, that's not even close to the case. Moving into 2nd place tonight after an impressive return to the lanes, Dolls and Balls is definitely on the move. Ready to see how the league rolled? Let's do this.

  • 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?

  • Compromising Position Round (Mar 22nd, 2011) - The position round is now in the history books and with it came quite the reshuffling of the teams in the league standings. Six of the eight teams swapped places after all was said and done. Pretty impressive, eh? Once again we find the standings tightening up.Find out where your favorite team now sits by reading this week's write-up.

  • Dedication, Devotion...and Destruction (Mar 8th, 2011) - With the position round just two weeks away, teams are slowly gravitating towards their standings opponents in what should be a do or die rolloff week on March 22nd. For now, Week #6 managed to keep everyone in their current spots with two exceptions as No Pinheads bunny hopped SucmaBOWLS. Not complacent with the status quo, the league was treated to a nice showing of dedication from Dolls and Balls' anchor Ryan Doll who despite having recently had surgery performed on his bowling arm showed up to keep his team from forfeiting and rolled with his opposite hand to keep his team in the running. Ready to see how everyone did as the first half of the season nears its end?

  • Winning. Duh. (Mar 2nd, 2011) - Now THAT'S more like it. With the results of Week #5 in the books, the league standings have now become much more interesting. Poised to run away with the season and never look back, current standings leaders S*I*C*K instead crashed and burned as 2nd through 4th place added big wins to their records. A mere 2.5 games now separate the top half of the league's roster.Ready to get the full story?

  • 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.
