After tonight, I will no longer by an Open Championships virgin. I bowl singles and doubles at 7:00AM (CDT) tomorrow and then team at 2:30PM. I realize that’s backwards from the norm, but I like doing things differently. From the looks of it, everyone likes throwing the ball differently.
There are all sorts of styles going on across those 48 lanes, wow. Definitely some “unconventional” approaches mixed in with some decent stuff. So far, though, the Nebraska teams were the most impressive. There scores through the eight frames I watched show it, too. Just about all strikes and a few spares in there and just a sprinkle of opens. Those two lanes were a sharp contrast to the others. As good as someone can bowl, there’s a definitive from that and great consistency. Those guys gave me something to aspire to (I’m not talking tomorrow, more like someday before I turn 90).
So, off to bed now to rest up and dream of pins colliding and all falling down. Or, at least most of ‘em…
I will be Tweeting as much as I can tomorrow (which is before, between, and after bowling), so hit me up on Twitter. Otherwise, look for a post later tomorrow (or Tuesday, if I end up disappointed and can’t bring myself to admitting it right away). Good luck to everyone who guessed my score, win or lose!
