EIGHT-BALLED UPSET!!!!!

Posted by ScooterJ On December - 4 - 2018ADD COMMENTS

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 no-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. Freda Schroeder picked up this week's high game (191) and series (451) for the women. As for the men, Michael Gordon and Russell Bingham both tied for this week's high game with a 224, and high series was earned by Russell Bingham with a 605.

Could Next Week Include a Three-Way?

Posted by ScooterJ On November - 27 - 2018ADD COMMENTS

Well, this is it, we’ve nearly reached the end of the season and the championship round is next week. While much attention has been focused on the struggles this season of defending champions Serious Bowlers and the fact that they are now eliminated from trophy contention, there’s another part of this story that deserves even more attention. And that is the quiet but rapid rise of BDE. Once dangling limp down in 7th place, BDE has firmed up into virile force that has penetrated into championship contention and could explode into a messy situation for all of us next week if a couple of other teams don’t use adequate protection. More on next week’s potential sticky situation in a moment, let’s first run through how everyone did last night…

Almost A Clean Sweep

Posted by ScooterJ On November - 13 - 2018ADD COMMENTS

This topsy-turvy season continues to get screwier and screwier, as four sweeps and a near sweep continued to stir up the standings. Once in 7th place, BDE this week pulled ahead of the two-time defending champions and found themselves tied for third place. Meanwhile rookie team Teeby Dee, who spent most of the season lingering near the bottom of the standings, suddenly finds a winning record within quick reach and is still mathematically a contender for the trophy. These two teams face each other next week, so this will be the game to watch as the outcome could be BDE moving cleanly into third place or TBD attaining a positive win record.

The Voter Rolls

Posted by ScooterJ On November - 6 - 2018ADD COMMENTS

Last night, based on exit polling plus early returns, Bowling News Network (BNN) called first place for Serious Bowlers. Boy, are we red-faced about that one. We haven't missed a call that badly since we projected Hiillary Clinton the Tournament of Champions winner in Fall 2016!

Posted by BowlingBot On October - 30 - 2018ADD COMMENTS

Week 11 RoboHeader(Note: Until Gucci Lane post-bowls later this week, this will mostly remain a robo-writeup.)

Balance Restored… (sorta)

Posted by ScooterJ On October - 16 - 2018ADD COMMENTS

Every team has now bowled every other team, and it took every one of those 9 weeks of sessions for one of the teams that everyone thought should have been in first place to finally get there, albeit as part of a tie (just like they last time they were in this position in week 1). It should also be noted that the team that got there this week is not the so-called defending champions. ;)

Hitting A Wall

Posted by ScooterJ On October - 9 - 2018ADD COMMENTS

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. Alison Radke landed this week's high game for the women with a 183, and women's high series was bagged by Monica Hufford with a 475. As for the men, Carl Goetz earned this week's high game (236) and series (603). Read on for all the rest of the details!

The ToC Takes Off

Posted by ScooterJ On September - 11 - 2018ADD COMMENTS

This week was packed with splits, open frames, and many normally-good bowlers struggling to roll even respectfully close to their averages, while others with lower averages soared this week. Was it the oil pattern, or was it some sort of conspiracy? All that aside, Monica Hufford picked up this week's high game (168) and series (479) for the women, while Aaron Barber earned this week's high game (203) and series (586) for the men. Meanwhile, the Tournament of Champions also kicked off tonight, beginning of 13 weeks of one-on-one bowling excitement! Read on for all the rest of the details!

Red Strikes First

Posted by ScooterJ On September - 4 - 2018ADD COMMENTS

For the first time this season, a team has pulled away from the pack of ties to become the first first-place leader of the season. Granted, Red Strikes Matter hasn't had to face any challenging teams yet, especially not this week, so it remains to be seen what will happen next week when they have to deal with some real competition. ;)
