A listing (from most current to furthest back) of any write-up posts in which Carl has been mentioned:
  • Sweepage! (Nov 19th, 2019) - As the Fall 2019 season draws closer to its conclusion, a bowling session that went almost exactly as predicted saw four sets of sweeps that led to... no change in the standings except for a flip of the bottom two positions. However, three bowlers 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 151, and women's high series was bagged by Alison Radke with a 402. As for the men, Ben Spencer snagged this week's high game with a 235, and high series was earned by Carl Goetz with a 637. Read on for all the rest of the details!

  • All Hail the ToC Champs! (May 7th, 2019) - The Spring 2019 season draws to a close, with CICK Ass officially earning this season's championship title! But we aren't quite finished yet -- next week we will meet at our usual time to name all the award winners and hand out prize money (in the meeting room on the Finnegan's side, through the back of the snack bar), followed by 9-pin-tap fun night. The final week saw one team climb in the standings, while one team slipped. Monica Hufford picked up this week's high game (186) and series (513) for the women, while Matthew Taylor earned this week's high game (237) and series (628) for the men. Read on for all the rest of the details!

  • 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!

  • Historic League Records Go Up In Smoke (Apr 16th, 2019) - The unlucky thirteenth week of Spring 2019 featured the rise of the Antichrist, who entered our world specifically to shatter a whole slew of league records. It also saw one team climb in the standings, while one team slipped. Two bowlers set a new personal best series, and two rolled new personal high games. Alison Radke picked up this week's high game (170) and series (424) for the women, while Satan himself AJ Hofmann earned this week's high game (279) and series (672) for the men. Read on for all the rest of the details!

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

  • Fall 2018 Recap (Dec 13th, 2018) -

  • EIGHT-BALLED UPSET!!!!! (Dec 4th, 2018) - The Fall 2018 season draws to a close, with 8 Balls officially earning this season's championship title! But we aren't quite finished yet -- next week we will meet at our usual time to name all the award winners and hand out prize money (in the meeting room on the Finnegan's side, through the back of the snack bar), followed by 9-pin-tap fun night. The final week saw three teams climb in the standings, while three teams slipped. One bowler set a new personal best series, and one rolled new personal high game.

  • Week 14 Semi Robo Recap (Nov 27th, 2018) - NOTE: Scoot was out of town when post-bowling scores came in and just got back late last night, so this will remain a robo-writeup except for a few special items highlighted below. The fourteenth week of Fall 2018 saw two teams climb in the standings, while two teams slipped. Alison Radke picked up this week's high game (143) and series (401) for the women. As for the men, Aaron Barber snagged this week's high game with a 225, and high series was earned by Curtis Whiles with a 604. Read on for all the rest of the details!

  • Hitting A Wall (Oct 9th, 2018) - We are now halfway through the Fall 2018 season, and the league seems to have hit a brick wall. Other than a tit-for-tat between BDE and We Don't Give A Split, no teams were able to budge in the standings with just a week to go before Position Round.

  • Week 6 RoboRecap (Sep 25th, 2018) - The sixth week of Fall 2018 saw two teams climb in the standings, while one team slipped.

As for the men, Russell Bingham snagged this week's high game with a 235, and high series was earned by Michael Mead with a 649. Read on for all the rest of the details!

  • The Post-Bowling Blues (Sep 18th, 2018) - The fifth week of Fall 2018 saw two teams climb in the standings, while two teams slipped. One bowler set a new personal best series, and one rolled new personal high game. Monica Hufford picked up this week's high game (199) and series (522) for the women, while Aaron Barber earned this week's high game (257) and series (609) for the men. Read on for all the rest of the details!

  • Spring 2018 Recap (Jul 11th, 2018) -

  • A Third Three Hundred! (Apr 24th, 2018) - While the standings didn't change at all tonight, quite a lot actually happened. Before we get into the big story of the night, we will take a moment to remember some of the other people who accomplished things tonight. Monica Hufford picked up this week's high game (188) and series (474) for the women. As for the men, Dennis Walling snagged this week's high game with a score that we'll get to in a moment. High series was earned by Kody Karnes with a 699. Read on for all the rest of the details!

  • Fall 2017 Recap (Dec 13th, 2017) - 36 seasons of bowling are now behind us, and while we didn't set much in the way of records, having 10 teams brought us some new twists and turns and the largest pool of prize money (just shy of $2200) we have seen in quite some time!

  • Another Season, Another Upset (Dec 5th, 2017) - For the second season in a row, a second place team made a shocking comeback at the last possible moment to steal the championship from the expected winner. And, the common element in both comebacks is Aaron Barber. Is he a good luck charm that teams will fight to recruit in the off-season?

  • Holy NotContra, Batman! (Nov 28th, 2017) - With the last regular night of bowling in the history books, the remote possibility of the season ending in a three-way tie has faded away. Instead, next week Holy Sandbaggers, Batman! will attempt to protect their cherished first-place position from their only remaining challenger: NotContra.

  • NOT NotContra (Nov 22nd, 2017) - With only one week remaining before the final position round, only three teams are mathematically still in the hunt for this season's championship. But a chant of "NOT NotContra" has been gaining momentum, that may or may not, have started on lanes 1 and 2 tonight.

  • Beware Of Doug (Nov 14th, 2017) - There was some pretty freaking amazing rolling tonight. JoAnne Gordon rolled a new personal best series (405) and new high game (157). Michael Smith rolled a new personal best series (464) and tied his personal high game of 192. Ben Spencer broke his previous best game with a 199. Dennis Blake and Aubrey Moren were both on fire. Nick Kinney went insane with a 268. But nobody came close to what sub / 5th-man Doug Bonney did tonight.

  • Spring 2017 Recap (May 19th, 2017) - 35 seasons of bowling are now behind us, and while this season may not have set a lot of records, it still has a few firsts and a lot of fun moments. And the surprise come-from-behind championship win by Omaha Hambone marks the first title win in quite some time that didn't come from ne of the long-time dynasties.

  • Nate Silver Predicted 71.4% Likelihood Frankee's Uncles To Sweep Championship (May 10th, 2017) - In an effort to fully understand the situation facing the league going into tonight, we asked renowned statistician Nate Silver to take a look at the numbers. Noting that Omaha Hambone would need to win an unpresidented [sic] FIVE games in a row to win the championship, and that Omaha Hambone lost three games to Frankee's Uncles the last time they faced each other, the analysis revealed a 71.4% chance of the Uncles sweeping the Hambone, and a 99.973% chance of an Uncle championship overall. But, because November 8, 2016 exists, we all know exactly how this turned out...

  • Tightening the Grip (Apr 25th, 2017) - Next week is the last week of regular season bowling, and after a season that at first seemed to be heading toward finally letting someone else win for a change, it appears the dark overlords are getting a tighter grasp on yet another victory. Just two weeks left for any of the remaining competition to make a play!

  • Another RoboWriteup :( (Apr 18th, 2017) - Sorry, folks. Scoot only got 3 hours of sleep last night, so we have to do another computer-generated writeupo this week. :( Sorry about that!

  • The RoboWriteup (Apr 5th, 2017) - Scoot had a lot he needed to do tonight and didn't have time to write a recap, so this week's update is the automated, computer-generated version. Sorry about that!

  • The Uncles Wiggled Back Up (Mar 28th, 2017) - Last week left things with the top three teams only one game apart. Now they are three games apart and a new leader has emerged.

  • Bowl To The Future (Feb 22nd, 2017) - Okay, get ready for this, our league has just undergone time travel and split off into an alternate reality. Last night while working up the scoresheets, things just weren't adding up no matter what Scoot tried. After a great deal of frustrating recap sheet auditing, it finally came to our attention that a blind series we had recorded for Michael Gordon back in Week 3 had actually been pre-bowled and we never got the scores for it. So, moments ago, week 3's scores were re-entered, and all affected matchups since then have been re-calculated. The result is a history of the past 3 weeks considerably different from the one we have already experienced. In this new timeline, Ebowla experienced a week as the first-place team, and Frankee's Uncles are now enjoying their second week in first place.

  • Our Gutters ♥ Your Balls (Feb 14th, 2017) - While many bowlers were either absent or pre-bowled, most of the league knew what their true love is and spend Valentine's evening chucking balls down the lane.

  • So Shines a Good Deed in a Weary World (Jan 31st, 2017) - With so much darkness and suffering in our country and the world the last 11 days, it is nothing short of miraculous when a tiny ray of light cuts through the darkness and brings hope to a world in sorrow. So, Omaha Hambone, we thank you.

  • Spring 2017 Kickoff! (Jan 24th, 2017) - Our 35th season kicked off with what could very well turn out to be the most fund, least competitive season we have had in years. A dozen rookies make up more than a third of the league, so anything goes!

  • 2016 Is A Wrap (Dec 21st, 2016) - With 34 seasons of bowling now behind us, the Fall 2016 season ended tonight as the 3rd best season in league history in terms of combined league average. Congratulations, everyone, on a great season!

  • Up In The Air (Nov 29th, 2016) - All bowling scores are in, and the headline for this write-up doesn't need to change! After ruling the roost all season, Vote JV is now in a tie with the team that is trying very hard to live up to the namesake of its acronymous name. It litterally comes down to who wins next week!

  • Thankful For a More Interesting Championship (Nov 22nd, 2016) - In what was a very short night for everybody except the poor schmoes on the first pair of lanes, things suddenly have become potentially very interesting as we close in on the Championship round. Suddenly the team that has been running away with first place all season is finding themselves needing to fight for it. How did this happen?

  • Look At Some Cute Things While Reading About Bowling (Nov 9th, 2016) - Scoot tried several times last night to get this write-up going, and even had various sets of images already loaded up to go with a theme for either way the election went. But he just couldn't bring himself to do it, and decided that what this nation needs now more than anything else is a bowling recap to help us heal. (Pictured left: Freda & Carl reconcile after some heated post-bowling election night bickering.)

  • No Change (Nov 1st, 2016) - You'd think that with new bowlers continuing to be introduced 11 weeks into the season, that we'd see some changes in the standings. But nope, not this week, every team stayed exactly where they were!

  • Ten. (Oct 25th, 2016) - You'd think we wouldn't be welcoming a new bowler into the league in Week 10, but hey, this is the Fall 2016 season so anything goes. And, in typical Fall 2016 season, the team he was going to bowl on didn't show up. But that's okay, he got to kick ass for another team instead.

  • Pops Tops Pins (Oct 18th, 2016) - We begin the second half with no movement in the standings, at least not so far. However the matchup between the top two teams can't be reported until the alphabet team post-bowls on Monday.

  • Halfway Done! (Oct 11th, 2016) - It's on. Despite all the sickness and injuries and disappearing team members, our league came back to form in a big way this week. This week was our league's strongest showing since April 19 and the second-strongest performance we've seen so far in 2016. We had more 200+ game tonight (14) than we've seen in any week so far this season. The season is now halfway over, and while last season's champions remain in the lead, a challenger is finally emerging who is chipping away at their lead.

  • A Fractured League Enters Midseason (Oct 4th, 2016) - Our decimated league is now approaching the position round, and yet another injury takes yet another bowler out for the the season. Let's al wish the best for both Mark DeVoe and Kody Karnes on their individual roads to recovery! Meanwhile, nobody moved in the standings this week. Which only makes sense, considering how few league members can even walk.

  • Humptastically Excited about First (Sep 27th, 2016) - In a season that seems to almost be cursed, for the first time this season, every real team had a full roster despite four bowlers being absent. Not that that mattered in any way for keeping the defending champions from making an early start at running away with the season once again.

  • Don't Tread On Mead (Sep 20th, 2016) - Tonight was supposed to see our league finally as full as it's going to get this season, but like several other bowlers our new guy was infected with pestilence. However, Michael Mead showed up and inoculated us with a shot of kick-ass bowling that rocketed him to the top of the individual standings.

  • Sweepage (Sep 6th, 2016) - All four matchups ended in sweeps tonight. Who did the sweeping and who wound up in the dustbin? The answers to these questions and more, in this week's episode of All My Gutterballs.

  • Dustin-Hofmann (Aug 30th, 2016) - Apart from some sexy new bowling shirts making a debut, the biggest development tonight was some pretty amazing performances by two of our non-anchors. Congratulations to Dustin and AJ on some mighty fine bowling tonight!

  • Spring 2016 is History (May 24th, 2016) -

  • Why Did Pocahontas Leave Her Hairpiece By The Campfire? (May 18th, 2016) - Tonight, on our last real night of bowling, we were joined by several new people that had never rolled in our league all season. It was the strangest thing, though... none of them were ever seen at the same time as Amber, Michelle S., Angela, Bob, Kody, or John Boren. Very! weird!

  • Back to Back Clinchings (May 10th, 2016) - Not even the threats of Mexican wrestlers and their drug lord sidekicks could keep Fallop Ian from clinching the championship!

  • Escaping the Flood (Apr 26th, 2016) - Tonight bowling ended nearly half an hour earlier than usual, allowing everyone to get home without drowning or getting struck by lightning. Due to a combination of weather and Scoot being really tired, we'll be using the computer-generated writeup tonight. Sorry about that! :(

  • A Royal Mess (Apr 5th, 2016) - You can always tell when the Royals are playing -- every team that has people related to Freda on it has absent bowlers. Bowling went quickly for most, though we can't report on everything until Fallop Ian post-bowls.

  • Fear The Cheese (Mar 29th, 2016) - Why, oh why, do people continue to deny the power of The Cheese Stick Curse? Time and time again, the power of the molten mozzarella has been proven!

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.

  • 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.

Only time will tell.

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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • I'll Be Back? (Apr 30th, 2013) - Despite one team opting to post-bowl this week, the season has now come down to a potential Finals showdown between current league leaders Will Strike if Provoked and Dragon Balls. Low scores permeated the entire league, most of which could be blamed on the fact that the bowling alley's bar was deplete of beer. Oh the humanity...

  • 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.

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...

  • The 11th Frame - Week 9, Spring 2013 (Mar 28th, 2013) -

  • 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...

  • 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 11th Frame – Week 7, Spring 2013 (Mar 14th, 2013) -

  • 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.

  • Birthday Beatdown (Mar 5th, 2013) - To celebrate Freda's birthday Tuesday evening, her team wanted to deliver a spanking to opponents and fellow league standing toppers Snakes on a Plane. By the end of the night, the team came through and Freda and crew now stand atop the charts all by themselves. Also around the league, Neil Rieger said goodbye to GutterAlley with a near perfect game while one team opted to post-bowl making it a later-than-usual week to provide the full update.Ready to see how things ended up? Step right in, then...

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • Taking It On the Chin (Oct 23rd, 2012) - Just about every underdog team in tonight's matchups made sure to make their opponents take it on the chin as the league standings tightened up in the second half of the Fall 2012 season. Despite only three teams changing places, leads over other teams have been significantly diminished as only ten games separate all eight teams in the league. With 28 games still left to win, it's honestly anyone's title to take.Will your favorite team make the most of these next seven weeks?

  • Position Round Repositionings (Oct 16th, 2012) - With only two teams staying put, every other team found itself in a new spot on the league standings after the position round. Huge games and series were recorded across the board in what was probably the highest scoring midway point of any season in league history.

  • 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.

Carl HATES that pin.Dive into this week's writeup...

  • Absolute Perfection (Oct 2nd, 2012) - One. Two. Three. Four. Five. Six. Seven. Eight. Nine. Ten. Eleven. Twelve. Twelve strikes in a row. David Codding becomes the first person to roll a perfect game on league night. It doesn't get much better than that, folks. Actually, it cannot.

  • Rise of the Mayans (Sep 25th, 2012) - Week #5 saw some domination as three of the four matchups ended in opponents getting swept. Only one matchup was a real roller coaster thanks to an MVB performance from Teresa Deterding that ended in a 2-2 split.

Hop on into this week's writeup to get the lowdown...

  • Kiernan Takes Over the Crown (Sep 18th, 2012) - When you have eight teams on a roster, you don't expect 75% of them to swap places on a single Tuesday. Well, Week #4 was that week. The highlight of the night, however, was Steve Kiernan throwing a 259 in Game #3 to take over the highest game thrown all season.

  • 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!

  • The Cream Rises (Sep 4th, 2012) - Highly volatile Week #2 reshuffled the league standings, putting six of the eight teams in a new spot. Two teams have already separated themselves from everyone else after amassing 7-1 records while four teams (yes, FOUR TEAMS!) share a record of 3-5. This season should prove to be a fun ride, as usual. Ready to see how everyone did? Of course you are...

  • 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...

  • Spring 2012: And the winner is... (May 8th, 2012) - The 25th season of the GutterAlley bowling league came to a close and the list of winners from the season favorites to individual achievements were well as Bob Brunker, the latest inductee into the Hall of Fame.

  • Finally the finale, the Finals (May 1st, 2012) - The 25th session of GutterAlley came to a close Tuesday night and, while there was no drama surrounding the big finish for first place, the Goetz boys – as well as AJ Hofmann – made some noise of their own as the sun set on the season. Each now have a story of their own...

  • The Big 5-0 (Apr 24th, 2012) - Before last night, only two teams in league history (one confirmed, one unconfirmed) had earned 50+ wins in a single season. Tuesday night saw another team join that elite group as league champions The Turkey Hunters added another accolade to their incredible run in the Spring 2012 season...

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • Pole Position (Mar 6th, 2012) - Ahh, the position round...that time honored mid-season event that allows teams to either really put it to their closest competitors and climb the league standings. While one team continues to further extend their domination over the league, other teams in the middle tightened the distance between themselves and the teams just ahead of them. How did everyone do? You're just a click away.

  • Gimme a T! (Feb 28th, 2012) - Simply put, Tuesday night belonged to Teresa Deterding of Splits or Swallows. Earning both Most Valuable Bowler AND #1 Power Ranked Bowler nods, Deterding rolled the best game and series of her career on the week leading into the position round. Is T setting the pace for her team as they get ready to venture into the 2nd half of the season?We'll just have to wait and find out, won't 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...

  • Big Bad Bill is Sweet Rollin' Now (Feb 1st, 2012) - We're now three weeks into the season and the league standings shuffled themselves up nicely, with all but one team moving into a new position. Brown Belt Jones – the lone holdout from moving up or down – witnessed their own Bill Krejci roll his all-time personal best series and earn both MVB and #1 Power Ranked Bowler honors in the process.So where does everyone sit now in the standings? You'll have to read on to find out...

  • 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...

  • 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. Before we get started, we wanted to welcome our newest recruits and explain what they can expect in the league...

  • 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...

  • 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 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.

  • Hall of Fame Nominees: Spring 2011 (Oct 25th, 2011) - The GutterAlley Hall of Fame was created to commemorate and honor those individuals that best represent the bowling league throughout its rich history. Six league luminaries have been selected to grace this season's ballot. Congratulations to Bob Brunker, Carl Goetz, Dennis "Pops" Laube, Janelle "Nellie" (Laube) Lamar, Jason Carpio, and Pat Searcy. Now it's up to you, the bowling community, to vote for your favorites...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • Touch It for the Win (Mar 15th, 2011) - Seven weeks. Eight teams. The first half of the league is now complete with each team having faced one another once. With the outcome of this week, we now know who will face off next week in the mid-season position round. The surprise of the evening easily goes to Touch My Vlad who notched their first sweep "against real people" (to quote Sarah Manning). Congrats, Vlad!Ready to see how everyone else did right before the rolloff?

  • 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?

  • 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...

  • 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!

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Win, Lose or Split (Oct 26th, 2010) - With the position round behind everyone now, you'd think that there would start to be some kind of shift taking place in the league standings. Amazingly this is not the case in the VML Bowling League. Week 10 came and went with little to no standings-based fanfare, although some pretty important games were won that could make quite a difference in the long run.One team seems on its way to breaking into the top half of the standings, disrupting the stronghold that Kitten Mittons, Ground Mosque Zero, No Pinheads and the Pin Pricks have held onto since the start of the season...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Can They Be Stopped? (Sep 14th, 2010) - One month into the bowling league and the members of No Pinheads are definitely kicking ass and taking names. With an 11-game winning streak under their belts at the moment, the team continues to distance themselves from the rest of the pack. However, the teams beneath them continue to battle it out in an effort to derail their championship efforts. Case in point? An unlikely bowler brought her A game this week while securing Most Valuable Bowler honors and derailing the reigning champions from inching within striking distance of the current league leaders...

  • 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) -

  • A Rare Feat (Aug 24th, 2010) - The VML Bowling League officially kicked off Tuesday night with a mixture of long-tenured veterans alongside fresh new faces making up the cast of characters. Nine new rookies made their debut this season, including a last minute substitution called in at the final minute after another rookie announced he was dropping out from the league before even getting started. Two teams accomplished a rare feat, though, by sweeping their opponents on the first night – something that has only happened a handful of times throughout the years. On paper, these two teams are scheduled to face one another in the Finals but with the season just getting underway, it's still truly anyone's season to win. Want to find out how everyone did? 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!
