PJ Wins - At least one Miracle in October in Chicago

PJ pulls off a miracle - Wins week 8 of the BBT soundly defeating Mikie D

Well, the Cubs didn't win the World Series, or even a Playoff game to create the "Miracle in October" but the BBT had their own Miracle last night as PJ created some magic himself winning his first BBT title and only his second all time beating Mikie D 167/223 to 167/194.

Now you may not think it was a miracle...but PJ has been bowling like crap. Yes he made the finals earlier this year...but still...he has been bowling lousy. Not anymore as he goes home with a BBT title. Here is how it played out:

Mike D, who has been bowling very well, led qualifying by a ton shooting 534, Andy Loose, was second with a solid 258/213 qualifying, super nice guy Dan, 3rd with 233/219, Rob D scabbed in with 235/169, PJ was 5th with 465 and Reinfart edged out the 1973 champ by 7 pins shooting 235/216 461.

Paul Bober missed the cut 2 weeks in a row, Mike R, blows, welcome to Tom Gimmena who finished 10th, poor Jack...11th and Wazy...Wazy...Wazy...128 the first game...PJ beat you by 42 pins...what does that say?

Quarterfinals

Dan showed us what he is made of shooting 279/287 to pound the hair off of Rob...oops...he was already bald...who could only muster 169/200. But Rob was not sad as his pockets were full after hitting the 9 in a row pot...

Andy versus PJ...can you say David against Goliath, US versus Chile, Cubs versus Dodgers...but our man PJ hung tough and was the biggest loser, and really not losing to Andy by too much, 248/249 to 165/221. I'll tell you what...that Andy is good. He keeps his cool and he is almost as good as the 1973 champ in 1973...(not today).

Mikie D - put it to Reinfart handily beating him 198/225 to 189/194. You can tell when Reinfart just doesn't have it. He kind of loses that swagger...but when the swagger is on...watch out.

Semi-Finals

Dan
wins the 100 pin club award for shooting 112 pins lower than the game before ON THE SAME PAIR. Just goes to show you how the new lanes suck...the lucky recipient of his generousity was none other than champ PJ...winning 158/214 to 155/163...ouch Dan...ouch.

In the other semi, in a really good match, Andy finished with a flouish of strikes, but Mikie D struck on the first ball in the 10th to win the match 194/221 to 213/214. Nice bowling by Andy and Mike...good match indeed.

Championship Match


Mikie D gave it his all, well not really as he opened in the 3rd with a split then x-7/-7/-x-7/-9 /-open in the 10th...PJ, on the other hand was clean 2-7 and then pulled a PJ missing a 4 pin, strike and that was that.

Great bowling PJ...we are all proud of you...maybe it was the lessons from Dee that did it for you? Humm?

NOTE TO BBT MEMBERS

Kevin will be doing the blog for the next 2 weeks. Should be interesting how he butchers it as I will be on vacation. Need a vacation from my tough job. It is exhausting doing the blog.

  1. I'm sure you'll be bringing your laptop to check up on Kevin.

  2. Maybe Lou installed some sort of secret webcam at River Rand so he could watch the BBT on a remote feed from Australia.

    That's sick Lou.
