My Career Year

My unexpected run of good bowling to end the season not only allowed "Jerry's Kids" to repeat as the league champions, but I also received the award for the league's 'Most Improved' bowler. I increased my average from its low point of 173 to 184 primarily over the last 10 weeks of the season.

I am calling this my 'career year' because I am normally right around 175 for average. Last year, I had my best year ending at 177, but I had not bowled a single 600 series on the year. This year, I had 30 '200' games and 8 '600' series, most coming in those last 10 weeks.

Next year we go for 3 in a row and I find out if there is regression and diminishing skills.

Ranting again....

It makes total sense to keep sports like Ping Pong, Modern Pentathlon, Trampoline, and Badminton over Wrestling in the Summer Olympics...Why would the committee keep one of the original sports with worldwide participants over more regionally supported ones. Duh!

If we all just paid another 5% in taxes, all the disadvantaged persons in this country could live much more comfortable lives doing nothing all day. Just a bit more sacrifice from us evil producers is all that is needed.

Did you know penguins can fly?

I think the idea of glowing and sparkling vampires that can walk around during the day and appeal to pre-teen girls everywhere is such an incredible idea. I should write some books about it.

Where is that new rap CD I bought....?
