Well, you knew it was a matter of time and Wednesday was his time as Chalupa spanked the pins monkey real good and powered his way to his first BBT win of the 2007/2008 season.
After winning 4 times in the summer, Chalupa was as quiet as a plate of cold pinto beans so far this season but yesterday...he made so much noise on the lanes it sounded like 100 Mexicans Ass's after eating a ton of those pinto beans. Boom, Kaboom, boomboomboom, Kaboom...strike, strike, strike...he shot 239, 212, 265, 246...destroying the field...here are the details.
Qualifying - Top 6 Make the cut - Largest field of the season
|POS.||NAME||HDCP.||GAME 1||SUB TOTAL||GAME 2||Total|
|12||Al E. Neuman||16||212||228||182||426|
Like every week, there is always a story. Qualifying first was Rob F, who started with the first 5 stikes in game one, then not so good the next 5 but had a good enough start to rebound and shoot great the second game. Fritz, Chalupa, Rob D, last weeks runner up PJ were solid.
The 6th spot was up for grabs. And as you see we had another tie...Lou and defending champion, Wazy with 457. 9/10 frame rolloff.
Lou 9/, 9/,8
Waz x,9/,9 (Grandpa D nose cruncher first ball)
Lou could have struck on the first ball to win...missed the pocket by a lot and left only the headpin with a lucky break.
Tough Luck and also ran Bowlers - Andy D, who bowled like ass the first game shot 248 the second to miss by 2 pins and new comer Shawn, shot 225 the last game and missed by 4. Tittie started lousy and shot 235 to miss by 18 and Reinfart shot 211 and 226 but with 0 pins handicap...not enough. Al E Neuman, finally bowling, new comer Frankie B and Grandpa D...also went home early.
Not very exciting matches as Rob F pounded Wazy 215/182 (Wazy clearly out of gas), PJ put it to Fritz 242/200 almost beat him scratch (he spanks), and Chalupa continued the clinic by smashing Rob D 282/189...not quite a 100 pin loss...
Finals - With 14 bowlers, we cut to 6 and had the 3 winners bowl a final shootout and the loser bowled for 4th place $ and points.
Here are the scores:
Championship Match - Chalupa really pounded the sticks winning in a runaway. But Rob D shot great for his 2nd second place finish and PJ now has a 2nd and 3rd back to back. Great shooting guys.
The consolation match which usually nobody cares about was entertaining as the Wizard of Waz, had the first 9 strikes...and then the camera jinx took over and he left a soft 10 on the first shot in the 10th...still shot 279 for 4th place $ and points. Fritz and Rob just went through the motions.
The format change to 3 on a pair worked well as we finished qualifying in 45 minutes.
