Bowling with the Boys

I just got back from the pre-game meal and thought I would quickly recap the events of the past few days. A big highlight of the past week was bowling with Nilsson, Cogliano, Gagner, Brodziak, Penner, Schremp, and the infamous Joey Moss last night. It's always a treat hanging with Joey because he's the funniest guy you will ever meet. If you're ever in a bad mood, he will put you in a good mood.

We put the bumpers up for him and he got excited every single time it was his turn. Even if he didn't knock down a pin, he'd turn around and be cheering. In the first game he actually beat Cogliano. Lets just say that Andrew's attention span isn't very long and he's not a great bowler, so put those together and it's not a great combo.

I was on a team with Sam, Andrew, and Joey. We lost to Penner, Schremp, Brodziak, Nilsson. I won the first game but then I think Kyle got the next three highest scores, so he was probably the best overall. I think I mentioned this in a previous blog, but when we were down in the minors we would bowl probably three or four times a week and sometimes we would be there for eight hours. It was sad. I'll admit it. We got our own bowling shoes and bowling balls with our names. It became quite the hobby.

There were cameras at the bowling alley because it will be featured as a pay-per-view special, so you should definitely tune in because it will be top-quality entertainment. After bowling we took Joey out to dinner. He was going to have a sleep over at our place but he had a dentist appointment this morning so hopefully we can make it happen another time.

That should give you guys enough dirt to talk about for another week. I notice that you really enjoy making fun of me so I wouldn't want to disappoint you by leaving out all the embarrassing stuff.

Until next time,
Tom
