Today is the most important bowling night of our lifetimes. We are faced with fundamental differences in which direction we want to take our league…13 directions, to be exact.
Bayside Bowl will once again be full of television crews, broadcasting moments of local newscasters analyzing the mood of the party punctuated by cries of “Boom!” and “Beerframe!”
Dress pretty folks.
Roll Models (4-3) -3 vs Supah Deep (3-4): Roll Models has an impressive 677 average, but a loss here and they would find themselves looking up at the team with the 2nd worst average in the league. Luckily for them that result is unlikely. Supah Deep is coming off its best game, and Rick Vaughn may have found his role as a Tom Richards style 3rd game charm. But Bustah, 2xCheese and Snapshot is a pretty deep top 3.
Shake ‘N Bake (2-5) -1 vs Bowling on Bath Salts (6-2): It doesn’t make sense, but I think it could happen. Natro and The Dentist will one day both roll great in the same game, and I think it’s tonight. Oh, and Space Farmer is going for a 206. I do think General Tso finds a way to get on tv tonight however.
Split For Brains (4-4) -3 vs Slackers (2-6): The Slackers shocked even themselves by winning 14-1 last week. Now they get to put Bombpop, who led the league for a couple weeks, up against current league leader Precious. It’s almost a must win for them, but Split doesn’t have a lot of room to lose either. Precious and Pauly have been a dominant 1-2 punch when they roll together, and I think they’re both here tonight.
Dick’s Pick’s Vol. II (7-1) -5 vs Hebros (3-4): Tough start to the doubleheader night for the Hebros against the league’s top team. Not a lot of holes in the Dick’s lineup, but Dick may press to try to get up to the #2 spot on his team, and he did change up his own lineup rules last week, so maybe there’s a weakness. The Hebros are just crazy enough to think they can win this game, and they are as streaky as any team in the league.
Deez Knees (4-4) -3 vs Hebros (3-4): Deez Knees was stunned last week, but look to rally and continue their lose one – win one streak. The Hebros may be tired after their first game.
Ooh, That’s A Bingo (5-3) -1 vs Lane’s Addiction (3-4): This is a heated rivalry between Captains, but I don’t think it will come down to the Captains. Nuber has been bowling well, but he also has Oz and Deputy ripping up the lanes. McQueen has not had as consistent support. Pistol Pete needs to play huge and Hootie/Beaujolais need to grab a lot of points to pull this one out.
Flying Buttresses (4-4) -3 vs Wilfork Y.F.O. (2-5): Desperation time for Wilfork. The Buttresses look vulnerable and are on a losing streak, but it will be hard for them to match up against T-Mo and the Gut.
