Bowling Is Dumb: A Memoir by AJ

Fall 2019, Week 3 Posted by AJ Hofmann On September 3, 20193 COMMENTS

Intro: Normally, when Scott Murdock isn't sick and decides to use company time to do the write up, you'd get this on Wednesday. But since half the matchups are pending post-bowling scores and all awards are tentative, I (AJ), wanted to give you an early summary. (more...)  Read More →

Got Wood?

Fall 2019, Week 1 Posted by ScooterJ On August 20, 2019ADD COMMENTS

8 teams arrived to kick off our fortieth season, greeted by new flooring installed over the summer by last season's last-place team, who are now all taking a season off to recovering from the fumes. (This season's last-place team will get to replace all the ceiling tiles.) (more...)  Read More →

Spring 2019 Recap

Spring 2019 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. C.I.C.K. Ass - Spring 2019 Champs (more...)  Read More →

All Hail the ToC Champs!

Spring 2019, Week 16 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

Spring 2019, Week 15 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... (more...)  Read More →

The Fall 2019 bowling season will be our 40th consecutive bowling season. That makes 20 years of bowling! One of you isn't even that old, and some of you were still pooping your pants when we started rolling. Some of us still are. (more...)  Read More →


Spring 2019, Week 14 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! (more...)  Read More →

Spring 2019, Week 12 Posted by ScooterJ On April 9, 2019ADD COMMENTS

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

Spring 2019, Week 11 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. (more...)  Read More →

Speedy Recap

Spring 2019, Week 10 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

Spring 2019, Week 9 Posted by ScooterJ On March 19, 2019ADD COMMENTS

The Lava Lamp

Spring 2019, Week 7 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.
