Or would that be "knocking-down-pins challenged"?
August 21, 2009 | The Fun Handicap League ended league play on Monday night, and the final standings have been posted: Strikes 2 Spare finished in 4th place out of 28 teams.
Let it be noted that the bowlers on the 3rd place team have averages of 178, 182, 211, and 211, respectively. Although on total pins they beat us by fewer than 400 pins, on scratch pins, they outscored us by almost 8000 pins. As I said, it's all about the handicap.
As usual, we had a blast — to the delight of some teams and the dismay of others. Simply put, life is too short to be serious about bowling.
Ken did not bowl this summer, so the Usual Suspects were lucky to recruit Brad to make up the foursome. Brad has an online travel service so if you're planning a trip, give it a try — you'll get the same or better deals than on the biggies (Travelocity, Expedia, etc), and you'll help fund Brad's retirement.
And, while Bob was off in France visiting his nephews (one just bought an honest-to-gawd chateau), we were lucky to have Bob Not-enough-vowels-in-his-last-name to substitute, and his 178 average didn't half hurt either.
