Last year my son's team came in first place, which was great, however what I love about this league is it's all about the fun as opposed to just the winner. Though some take it more seriously than others, I mean scholarships and tournaments are at stake here.
Nothing is more fun than seeing the high Five's, the tasty treats and cosmo bowling that happens every holiday. It's a long season, September through May, but it's fun. Not to mention it gives us something to do every Saturday morning.
Now I have to admit The Boy is not the happiest bowler in the world. In fact he can be pretty cranky, hard on himself and pout a lot. I think he spends more time away from the lane then actually on the lane bowling and watching his teammates. He can truly be a pain in the butt, sometimes rude too to put it nicely. He gets frustrated easily, as he has a lot of trouble bowling. We really should practice more but it's just hard to find the time on the weekends.
The first two games he played (they play 3 games every Saturday) he bowled in the 50's and 60's, however the last game, he found his groove. He bowled his first 122, EVER. No bumpers either!! This actually made him so happy, instead of running and hiding from the camera, he actually posed. With a ball!! You'll see before he bowled his 3rd game he sat under the counter where the balls belong alone and ignored everyone!
Hopefully he'll have a good year, be happy and actually watch his other teammates bowl and cheer them on. Check out the video to see his first strike of the year!!
Not so happy BOY during games 1 and 2, before he bowled his first strike.The Boy's team. They don't have a team name yet, we are still deciding! My nephew is in the blue bowling t-shirt. HI CHRISTOPHER!! Sorry I didn't get a picture of your face, next weekend though!
How cute are these two little teammates? My other nephew is on the left and my neighbors son on the right! They are in the, I believe, 6yrs and under league.
Check out these scores! These kids are 9 through 11 years old. My nephew Christopher rocked it with his 100 score. I believe his two other games were even higher, GREAT JOB. The Boy with his ending score of 122, his best game EVER. Now remember his average is 62, so this made him very happy! I think he gets his bowling skills from me, I can barely bowl over 50. hey I'm a retired soccer player, I use my feet not my hands. John scored a 191, yes that is right a 191. I believe that was his best game ever too.
GOOD LUCK BOYS!!
Now enjoy this video of The Boy bowling his first STRIKE of the season.
