Week 5 finds us in the excitement of baseball. Early in the evening, the Cards won their game against Atlanta to tie up the NLDS at 2 games apiece. Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you already know that the Cards proceeding to have a record breaking 5th game, creaming Atlanta 13-1. Unfortunately, the Cards did not fare as well in the first game of the NLCS.
Turning to bowling, it was apparently a quiet, unexciting evening. Doug Lorenz won the 50/50. But in bowling, there apparently was not much to report. On lanes 21 & 22, Ralph Decker reported 4 splits in his first game. The question was – was that four in a row? Ralph undoubtedly was able to pick up those splits. Ralph also admitted to giving out his phone number as 867-5309. Over on lanes 22 and 23, the Team Lorenz bowlers were just like the kids in Lake Woebegone – they were all above average. But that held only for the first game.
There were several good games Monday. Ralph Decker bowled a 226, David Cowell bowled a 204, and Don Klackner bowled 199.
We had a few 200’s Monday; Steve Lafara and Jim Gidcumb both rolled 200’s, and Blake Critzas bowled a 202. There were also a lot of great handicap totals. There were also some average-raising series. President Bob had a handicap series of 667, Pete Milne had a handicap series of 664, Don Fuller had a handicap series of 641, Jim Conway had a handicap series of 658, and Katie LaMarsh had a handicap series of 663,
Here’s to lots of Spares and Strikes next week, and GO CARDS!
