Full of Turkey, No One Wants to Move

Fall 2015, Week 13 Posted by ScooterJ On November 24, 2015ADD COMMENTS

Turkey week saw lots of turkeys but no movement in the standings, likely due to everyone being overloaded on tryptophan.First up, on lanes 41 & 42: Andrew Finger led It's A Trap! to a sweep against the blind team with his 518 series.

A Bunch Of Crap

Fall 2015, Week 12 Posted by ScooterJ On November 17, 2015ADD COMMENTS

Because the results of the bowling matchups this week were so expected, and therefore so boring, Scoot has absolutely no inspiration for what to write about this week. Due to this, just so Scoot would stay awake writing this, much of the following is a load of crap.On lanes 41 & 42: Salt Water Taffy faced off against 404: Team Name Not Found. Despite (or perhaps because of) being constantly distracted by Zach Cross's wardrobe malfunctions, Ian Goetz rolled his balls off with a 636 series to... (more...)

Fall 2015, Week 11 Posted by ScooterJ On November 10, 2015ADD COMMENTS

Seans of the Deadly

Fall 2015, Week 10 Posted by ScooterJ On November 4, 2015ADD COMMENTS

Update Will Be Late

In the process, two veteran bowlers set new personal best records.First up, on lanes 41 & 42: Stephen Hawking's Dance Club knew they couldn't get Salt Water Taffy unstuck from first place, but they hoped to at least time a bite from their lead. But Ian Goetz had already made plans to roll his new personal best series tonight, a 709, to lead his team to a 3-1 victory and... (more...)

The last night of bowling before a two-week pause saw some shifts in the standings that could lead to some unexpected matchups for the position round.On lanes 41 & 42: Hold My Beer, Watch This thought that since they were bowling the last place team, they'd continue their rise towards first place.
