Due to the NCAA bowling tournament at Pro Bowl Lanes this week, we are NOT bowling this week. Next week we will resume where we left off.

The schedule has been adjusted, "Week 7" will now happen on April 13.

(Ignore the slippery pig. I was too lazy to replace the image from the last ice storm cancellation.)

Slow and Steady Wins the Race

Spring 2016, Week 5 Posted by ScooterJ On March 1, 2016ADD COMMENTS

For most of the league it was simply too far past their bedtimes, but those who stuck around to the end experienced quite the show. That said, much like the conclusion of bowling this week, we'll come to that in due time.As Scott Murdock walked into the bowling alley this evening, he noticed Jonathan Vigliaturo standing outside near the back door. Making eye contact, Scoot flashed him a grin, followed by a point and a nod as if to say "you're going down," Scoot headed inside, where he then learned... (more...)

Fallop Ian Squeezes Through a Small Lead

Spring 2016, Week 4 Posted by ScooterJ On February 23, 2016ADD COMMENTS

Half of tonight's matchups saw underdogs come out on top, while the other half saw bullies beat up on their prey. Which way did each matchup go? Read on to find out.First up, on lanes 41 & 42: Bowlgasmic intended to crush Glory Bowl into oblivion. Glory Bowl was already suffering due to Chelsie Finger needing to drop out for the season ue to an elbow injury. But then Bowlgasmic lost both Michelle Tollefson and Angela Bradford for the evening. As it turns out, the bad boys of Bowlgasmic... (more...)

Theory of Relativity Proven

Spring 2016, Week 3 Posted by ScooterJ On February 16, 2016ADD COMMENTS

Just days after the announcement that gravity waves were detected, another portion of Einstein's Theory of Relativity was proven tonight when the matchup that involved Holy Sandbaggers, Batman! finished in less time than any other matchup! Granted, they shed half of their mass in order do do it, but it's all part of the famous equation.First up, on lanes 41 & 42: The usual members of Split It & Hit It did battle with a pint-sized Holy Sandbaggers, Batman!. Led by Dennis Blake and his 542... (more...)

Barring another urgent 4:00 phone call from AMC alerting us to yet another outside force beyond anyone's control, bowling is on this afternoon.Though it feels to some like this should be the 5th week by now (because it should be), we will be rolling Week 3 of our schedule this week. We hope this means that Seth Gunderson, Andrew Finger, and Chelsie Finger will be able to make it tonight, since none of the three of you have set your average yet.Though the web site has been updated to reflect the... (more...)

Six More Weeks of Cheese Sticks

Spring 2016, Week 2 Posted by ScooterJ On February 2, 2016ADD COMMENTS

Bowling took way too long tonight due to some major lane malfunctions, and Scoot has to get up way too early tomorrow, so portions of this week's writeup are computer-generated. Apologies in advance for the lameness of ScooterProgramming™ computer-generated writing.First up, on lanes 41 & 42: Glory Bowl, still missing its Fingers, spent a romantic evening with Split Sisters. And, due to some flawed advice by yours truly, which I feel terrible about, the Split Sisters ended up swept... (more...)

Off And Rolling

Spring 2016, Week 1 Posted by ScooterJ On January 26, 2016ADD COMMENTS

The first week of our 33rd season began with lots of laughter and reunions, progressed through lots of beer, and ended with four teams rubbing their sore butts.First up, on lanes 41 & 42, a 404: Team Name Not Found suffering from 50% their normal level of Seans launched the season with a half-rookied Bowies In Space. Led by Scott Murdock and his 479 series, Team Name Not Found managed only 1 win against Bowies In Space. Meanwhile, Aaron Barber and his 607 series led Bowies In Space to 3 wins... (more...)

Bowling Postponed 1 Week

Spring 2016 Posted by ScooterJ On January 19, 2016ADD COMMENTS

We got a call from AMF a short while ago, all their other leagues have cancelled tonight due to the weather. Because I had already heard from several others who would not be able to be there tonight, it did not make sense for us to make the bowling alley stay open for about half of our league to show up.Our entire schedule has been shifted by 1 week, and this is now reflected on the web site. We will see you all on the lanes on January 26. Drive safely tonight!  Read More →

New Features for Spring 2016

Posted by ScooterJ On January 18, 2016ADD COMMENTS

Scoot was a busy little programmer this weekend adding more frequently-requested features to the bowling site.Team-By-Team Win-Loss RecordsThere have always been certain teams that make wagers with each other, and then they have to go back and use actual math at the end of the season to see who won. And nobody wants to do that! So now, on each team's profile page, a handy chart shows that team's win-loss record against every opponent they have played throughout the season.
