December 23, 2008 | Last week was the final week of our league's fall season and — who would have thought? — the Brunch Bunch emerged as league champions. OK, it's not that big a deal when there were only six teams in the league, and one of those was a dummy team, but first is first.
It was actually a very close league, right up until the final night. Going into position week, only 3 points separated the top three teams. In fact, it came down to the final frame of the last game before the issue was settled, and by only a few pins at that.
Our league chose to sweeten the pot for the sweeper held the last week and expand the number of places paid. This turned out to be a good thing for two reasons. First, it gave people something to bowl for on the last night, since there were nice prizes at stake. Second, everyone on our team was a prize winner in the sweeper. Between the point money for being in first place and the sweeper money for our scores that last night, we all walked out with over $100 in our pocket. Jim, who spent most of the season professing to be mystified by the whole scoring and point system, bowled his personal best that night and took first place in the sweeper. That's the fun of handicap bowling — it does level the playing field and on any given night, anybody can win.
