dropping the ball

another ad league bowling season is over. we did much better than last year. last year we didn't even make the playoffs. this year we ended the regular season in 5th place out of 42 teams. then in the first round of the playoffs we had to play the other campbell mithun team. the team that probably takes bowling a little more seriously than we do. the winner of the best of three advances. we lost the first game. then came back and won the next two. it was a very intense emotional victory. and traditionally teams don't bounce back well after those sorts of victories.

tonight was the next round. only 16 teams remained and it was single elimination. not good for our team since we always start slow. halfway through the game we were up by 30 pins. but then things started going downhill. we ended up losing by 40 pins. perhaps the worst part of that is that i bowled my worst game of the season, 40 pins below average. the other worst part might have been some dude's plumbers crack on the other team, which was probably the cause of my poor showing.

despite the loss. team FDR did way better this year than i was expecting. it's too bad it had to end like that though. it's kind of how it always ends for the minnesota sports teams i look up to. here's to next year. and on a side note, go twins!
