Todd Bischoff….. what can one say? Some bowlers are born with bowling prowess.
Others have it despite their lineage.
Not many can focus, let alone bowl, at 2 am but Todd likes that oil
pattern that has had a million games bowled on it.
After games of 249-170 in the Nite Owls midnight league, Todd began
his climb to glory. In game 3 he struck long and hard for the first 10 shots.
Beauties…all of them. He
could suppress the Lois in him no longer.
I swear he found religion in the 11th frame as the shot from hell
fell from his hand, literally, and he went to his knees.
As the ball lumbered to the pins the bowling gods voted 5 to 4 to
let him carry. One to go and
bowling immortality would be his. Don’t be bitter Todd…. You almost
carried that 3 pin. It was a
great run and the 718 series definitely is a feather in your cap.
Nice game, buddy.
When I’m struggling a bit with my game during league I have
fellas I watch to remind me how to execute certain points. The timing of Randy Schwaiger, the swing and reach of Bruce
Engler, the footwork of Tom Hoeffel and the roll-release of Randy Lambert.
When monsieur Lambert is on his “A” game the results can be
astronomical. When he has
that “Lambert” roll working I’d pay a buck and a quarter to watch
how the pins mix with that light pocket shot he loves so much. Wednesday
during the Hernandez Insurance Classic Randy had ‘em dancing as he
started the evening with a solid 300 game.
After his monstrous start he cooled a bit with 223-234 follow-up
games giving him a VERY nice 757 series.
High game and series for the week in the gal division both come
from the Napoleon Party Mart Classic league last week.
Marsha Brandt banged a big 256 game in game three while scoring 601
for the evening. Sherri Beck
took high series honors with a 647. Her
213-204-230 scores helped give the ol’ average a kick from 182 to 185
for the year. Nice shooting,
Something a bit strange at Deshler Lanes last week during the Corn
City League. In order from
top to bottom bowlers Denny Boyer, Chet Phillips, Doc Westendorf, Scott
Burkey and Roger Parker shot scores of 201-202-203-204-205. Scott threw a double and 1 count in the 10th and
Roger threw a double gutter for the 205.
Wuzzup with that ????
