Woops. Forgot one of the play-in games. The Pinups have struggled this season, their first without The Oft-Injured Chunk. It’s peculiar – Chunk was good, but it seems his absence has hit the other bowlers and brought their games down. Silky Pete has played alright, but everyone has taken a slight step back from last year. Hugh has been highly fashionable in the tennis whites, and Bulj has maintained his insouciance, and Beaujolais was a great pick up, but something hasn’t gelled. I guess that’s on Big Ern. So, Big Ern, the gauntlet is down. Time to rally the troops.
The Lesbowlians had thought this was the year they’d escape the play-in round, but find themselves here again. They do seem to be improving, and no longer have to rely on all-star Tilt-A-Whirl for top point each game, they have a lot of ladies capable of big games. And the shirts – spectacular. Trixy is sneaky competitive, so I expect her to have some excellent captaining tricks up her sleeve. They will make this one close, and I think it goes to the third game, but I think Bulj will be the hero and pull out the win for the Pinups.
