    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.

    I miss bowling. I bowled for my high school team for 3 years, and it was an awesome experience. I think I finished my senior year at a 198 average. Though, I'm super inconsistent.. which generally happens with a lack of practice. Highest game is 299

    LoL on using the spare ball for a week. 2 new ball tho, that's always exciting I don't see much 900 Global around here at all, and I've never used any of their stuff. Do you seem to like it?

    I bowled alirhgt in league last night. 196 (1 open), 192 (clean), 234 (clean). I just could not strike the first 2 games. I had a great look too. Owell, I'll take 622 on a sport shot.

    Last night was the first night of my bowling league. There are only 3 teams but my team did the best. I got the High Score of the night which sadly was only a 172 lol. But oh well. it will be fun and I have weak competition to face.

    3 teams of 4? You should suggest 4 teams of 3 instead. We did that a couple years ago and it was a lot more fun.

    Actually lol it's 3 teams of 2. Haha 6 people in the league. Considering they have promoted this league for months and its the cheapest league I was stunned. There is another one that starts an hour later and is much more expensive and it had like 35 people. I just didn't understand that crap at all.

    I love 900 Global. I haven't thrown any other ball since. I was throwing hammer for about 2 years and stopped because every time I got a new ball I would have to adjust to it even though I would get it drilled the same. With Global I haven't had that problem. I have bowled 4 different versions of their equipment and all the ball have performed equally well. The only thing I have to change is my starting position. Speed, breaking point, and revs stay the same. It helped alot when I started bowling more serious tournaments with sport oil pattern changes every day.

    League night is over (I live in Germany so its still early for you guys in the States) Series wasn't horrible 184, 192, 215 for a 591. Still a bit sore about the first game since I was at a 77 after the fifth because I opened 2 and 3 with splits. After that the night was consistent, couldn't get a solid string of strikes going though.

    Tomorrow I am qualifying in a German Tournament 80 people can qualify they take the top 35 and then 5 from a desparado tournament Sunday we will bowl 2 games and they cut 4 from the field and then after that you bowl 1 game and then bottom 4 get cut. Prize pool is 1000 Euro (roughly $1200) Should be fun.

    And then next Tuesday we are starting a German and American League that is doing 4 man/woman teams all men scratch (women +8 handicap) It is going to be 10 weeks and the first place team wins a trip to Luxembourg for a European Open Tournament.

    More updates to come as the season progresses.

    I have never thrown a Morich Ball either. It seems like I've been an ebonite guy for a little while now. I did throw a track 920T in a demo that I thought was really good. Their new line of balls is definitely quality, they are moving back up in the market.

    Going tonight. I won a little tournament this weekend and the first prize was a Brunswick C-series 4.5. I got it drilled with an ultra aggressive affect. Trying it out tonight to see what it can do.

    I am going to try to convince my roommates to go bowling this weekend, I haven't picked up a ball in over 2 years now and haven't actively bowled in over 4 years. If I do go this weekend I hope for about a 470 in a 3 game set and hopefully get out there more and build off of that. 4 years ago my average was in the high 170s so I'm hoping I haven't regressed too much. God I really miss bowling and would love to join a league if I had the time/transport to get there.

    Sig Bet Record: 1-0

    YOU'RE SPOILED
