I get it.

 The Chestnuts aren't playing any basketball this time of year, so you've got nothing but bowling to talk about.....

:-P:-D:whistle:

Yea.......haha....thanks David for reminding me!!!    With that said,  I am sooooooooo looking forward to playing golf again, but it's on the back burner for me for now.   My son is 14 and in a few years he will be gone and off to college.  For now, following his  bowling tournament schedule is first priority!!!   I am not a bowler......he got started on his own!!!!!!!   I am a bowler now, but Colby got me started. I bowl in 3 leagues a week now, and my son kicks my ass.......LOL....    He bowled a 5 game sweeper last weekend and averaged 253...he has real potential.  Im a 210'ish league average....and he's 220+ and rising.

15 and under.....Colby is one of the top bowlers in the country.  Good golf weather?...what?...I was probably watching bowling!!!!......if you know what I mean?.....it's fun times though....it's all good.  When he goes to college....my golf game will prosper..............

I have 2kids and my daughter is grown and already moved out full time sooner than expected.  I still have my son for a few more years and my wife and I are thoroughly enjoying traveling the country so he can bowl. In a few weeks...we go to Texas...so he can compete in a big field.  this summer....we will be at Nationals....In Cleveland.  This is the world we live in.....no complaints.  I am a BUCKEYE!!!!!...................... I promise you I will play golf with at least 1-2 old friends from 20 years ago while being in Ohio during he summer.   We plan to go to Cedar Point.....the ultimate roller coaster park..............LOVE THAT PLACE!!  When I was a kid, I had a season pass for about $45........today a day pass is about $160? Hell...I don't even know!!  Hahaha

Colby...........rolling the rock.......he makes it look easy...........this is why he's one of the elite youth bowlers in the country....

This was his first win beating  a host of college age kids in a regional multi-state tourney............................as a 14 year old. As his DAD.............that was fun to WATCH!!!  The Elite bowlers make stringing strikes....one after the other look easy.....and make their spares. Not that bowling is a profession to make good money, but he is a top prospect.

I was able to play last saturday...........   this is about as bad as "physically possible" as I can play.........I carded an 85. Hey...............it's early and I wasn't even that upset.   It's early and I was more than happy to post my 2nd official round into the GHIN system..........

The way I see it...I want to get 20 in.......build the CAP to whatever it is....then whittle it down. I will get down to the .0..........I lost weight and feel good.

He was so nonchalant when he won. Did he not realize he had won the tournament when he bowled the final strike, or was there still bowling to go before he won?

Interesting. Around here golf leagues begin and end when they do, and bowling leagues begin and end when they do because of each other! Guys who bowled would catch Hell if their team wound up in the championship and had to golf another week or two. and vice versa for the bowlers who showed up a week or two late for the start of golf league.

I used to bowl in a league. Had an average in the 180's, so I wasn't stellar but I wasn't chopped liver either. I bowled several 700 sets, and my best single game was 252.But bowling didn't "grab" me the way golf did. I haven't bowled in 20+ years!

He knew he won the tourney after the first strike in the10th....the rest was academic........   If you watch him bowl, he could be bowling a 150 or a 300 and you'd hardly know by his reactions to it.   When he sat down in the seat after his third strike in the 10th well after he buried his opponent, he looked to the side and revealed a small "smirk" ..he was looking at his mom in the gallery..........  that is about as much emotion as he shows ever...LOL

I give him credit because he's steady.......good or bad....he stays on an even keel.  

With that said,I won't be playing golf this weekend because I'll be sitting in a bowling alley all weekend watching the youngster compete.   It's all good though......no complaints. 

 

I currently bowl in 3 leagues..LOL......and my son got me started!!!!  We bowl through April....and then golf kicks into high gear for me.  By then my sons tourney schedule will be dying down so this will free up my weekends.
