So apparently in the fog of life I scheduled Pud’s vs Lovernauts to play last night. They showed up and Lovernauts won 13-2, thanks for playing that game guys! That leaves us with just 7 games tonight, 2 on Friday, and one of tonight’s games moved to next Friday. Crazy.
Hey PBA is coming right up in case you forgot. There are about 4 spots left in pro-am, and the list of players we have bowling with us is ridiculous. Dick Allen, Norm Duke, Jesper Svennson, Danielle McEwan, EJ Tackett, Scott Norton, Pete Weber…the lost goes on and on. Get in on it. If you can’t do it, this year admission to come watch is free, but everyone kind of looks funny at the guy who just sits in the corner and watches.
Game of the Night
Spare of the Dog (6-1) -1 vs Leisure Rolls (4-4): Spare of the Dog is chowing down on lasagna tonight, just hoping they don’t get too fat and happy after their epic upset last week. In fact this is a classic trap game situation against a Rolls team that is just starting to get their shit together. I should pick the Rolls, but I’m falling for the Dogs. At 6-1they actually have a shot to win the division if they keep stacking wins, but that’s a tough climb. They are making a strong case for team of the year, so the wins are almost just a bonus. Leisure Rolls did tweet some excellent pet smack today, and I think this is a real bowloff opportunity, but Yao Romo is too much Romo.
#3 L.O.S. (8-1) -5 vs B.U.I. (4-4): Well L.O.S. got their lips bloodied a bit when Spare of the Dog held on to knock them off last week. That’s one team LOS seems to struggle against. It likely won’t make a difference to their positioning (unless Dogs run the table) and they’ll be back hungry this week. Oh, did I mention they were missing Cheese? B.U.I. is a good team but this is bad time to play L.O.S. I don’t think it will be that close. Shout out to Nugget for a couple 190’s even with the close miss.
Lesbowlians (4-4) – 11 Bad News Spares (1-7): The season has started to get away from Lesbowlians with their last win on Feb 4th, but they’ll turn it around this week. This will be big for them as their final three games of the season are all tough matchups. The Bad News Spares are still riding the forfeit win they got against Granola. At least they won’t go winless.
Cunning Linguists (4-5) -3 vs Guns of Brighton (2-6): Both teams are coming off wins and hope to build a little momentum heading toward the playoffs. GOB has pretty much punched their ticket to the Sunday shootout while Linguists have a shot to avoid it if they can win a couple of their last three. Gutterslut’s been showing up in the 200 column pretty regularly again. G.O.B. still waiting on Holden Green’s promised 300.
UREA! (3-6) -3 vs Bowled and Beautiful (2-6): UREA! was part of league history last week in the first live streamed BoPo game, and it was an amazing game. T-$ won an epic duel with Crackerjack 289-276, and almost pulled off the miracle losing 8-7 in the last frame. They’ll be favorites this time. T-$ is making a strong, late push up the leaderboard, and Automatic is putting up some big scores. B&B is just biding their time, hanging out in the cellar, waiting to spring a big playoff upset. They’ll just be the happy victims in this one.
#5 Y&B II (8-1) -11 vs Tattoos and Titties (1-7): Y&B were the victors in that historic live streamed game. I have to acknowledge I doubted Glossy and Crackerjack when they started talking technology, but they proved me wrong, and I loved watching some BoPo while hanging with a baby at home. Tattoos and Titties have been stuck in the Pit for weeks. They’ll at least get to lose on a new pair tonight.
Bowlderdash (1-7) -1 vs Granola (0-8): Well there haven’t been a lot of wins for these two teams, but their combined total is going up by 1 this week. Kid Loose will have his team fired up but he does have somewhere in the neighborhood of 10 players (which makes that midseason forfeit even more inconceivable). Bowlderdash will be favorites in two of their last 4 and are looking to surprise someone on Sunday April 10.
