Well 3 weeks into bowling season and sitting at a 190ish average. Considering my first series of the year was a 497 I am pretty happy. Bowled really well last Wednesday with 288 (10 strikes 8/ to finish) 198, and 225. Getting my second 700 series. Bad news though my ball (the faithful 900 Global Maniac) has a nice crack running from my pointer to my thumb hole. Good news my wife is a champ and let me order a new one plus an additional (global creature pearl). They need to get here soon I don't think my spare ball will save me this week.
I will keep updating as the season goes on.
