Spring 2019 Recap

Posted by ScooterJ On May - 15 - 2019ADD COMMENTS

Tonight we celebrated Dennis Laube's birthday and the completion of 19-1/2 years of bowling, with more bowlers and more teams that we have ever had. Throughout this past season we have laughed, we have cried, we have kissed affordable PBR goodbye.

All Hail the ToC Champs!

Posted by ScooterJ On May - 7 - 2019ADD COMMENTS

The Spring 2019 season draws to a close, with CICK Ass officially earning this season's championship title (two weeks ago, yawn). 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 Rainbow Connection

Posted by ScooterJ On April - 30 - 20193 COMMENTS

Last week Championship dreams were washed away for everyone except CICK 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! More on that in a little bit, let's get through last night's scores...

Clinched!

Posted by ScooterJ On April - 23 - 2019ADD COMMENTS


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

Posted by ScooterJ On April - 16 - 2019ADD COMMENTS

Woe to you, oh Earth and sea, for the Devil sends the Beast with wrath
Because he knows the time is short
Let him who hath understanding reckon the number of the Beast
For it is a human number, its number is six hundred and sixty six,... plus six

When we have 8 teams the Position Round slices our season cleanly in half. But when we have 12 teams the Position Round is more like the mighty guillotine, slicing off just the end while the main body remains on the slab of history. Three normal-ish weeks remain before the Championship round, but even less time that that remains for anyone to act before the current #1 team clinches the championship outright.

Let Chaos Reign

Posted by ScooterJ On April - 2 - 2019ADD COMMENTS

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.

Speedy Recap

Posted by BowlingBot On March - 26 - 2019ADD COMMENTS

With about a quarter of the league at the Weezers/Pixies concert (admit it, Phil & Freda, we all know you were there too), the rest of us got to enjoy a speedy evening that finished relatively early. Unfortunately that didn't translate into extra write-up time for Scoot, and since he's very busy today we are going to leave about 90% of this as the computer-generated writeup.

Screwball Season Getting Screwier

Posted by ScooterJ On March - 19 - 2019ADD COMMENTS

This season has seen its share of weirdness -- due both to the number of teams and two both really high and really low games coming from unexpected places. This week was no exception. But next week it will get even weirder.

Big Ball Chantal

Posted by ScooterJ On March - 12 - 2019ADD COMMENTS

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.

The Lava Lamp

Posted by ScooterJ On March - 5 - 2019ADD COMMENTS

Like the globs in a lava lamp, teams have been taking turns rising to the top only to then quickly sink back down. This week was no exception, as CICK Ass returned to the top with We Don't Give a Split bubbling up just behind, while Pin Is King and #MGAGA have cooled and sunk, perhaps to be heated back up again.

Thank you very much Monica, AJ, members of the league, and Freda, the First Lady of the league. And my fellow bowlers. We meet tonight at a moment of unlimited potential, as we prepare to begin a new Tournament of Champions, I stand here ready to roll with you and pick up difficult splits.

These Go To Eleven

Posted by ScooterJ On January - 23 - 2019ADD COMMENTS

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!
