4 Times a Brides Maid - Now a BBT Champ as Mikie D destroys Rob D in Final

First time BBT Champion Mikie D with Runner Up Rob D

I guess when you have 4 second place finishes and 3 thirds in 13 weeks, you are bowling pretty well; but being the brides maid gets old after a while and yesterday, good guy, Mikie D. finally broke his cherry by winning his first BBT Title pounding the wee-wee out of Rob D. (bad wrist and all) 274/298 to 211/248.
Now Rob shot great, but just like last week's route by Jack W., Rob did not see the train coming and Mike D pounded the hole, shot after shot, after shot...knocking the shi_ out of Rob. Here's how it played out:
Format 11 Bowlers - 2 game qualifier - Cut the field to 6 - 1 Match game - winners and biggest loser moves on for 1 more match game. Then the championship match.

Qualifying

Qualifying was led by Tommy Gimena with a 505, last weeks champ, Jack Weelmaa shot solid again with 478, Mikie D shot 257/171, but still made the cut, Lou V, the 1973 Champ, made his second cut on a row with 223/178, Rob D, who crossed with the 1973 champ, shot 223/162 but squeaked in and Paul Bober, Mr. Smoothie, was solid again with 256/206.
Tough luck again for Andy who missed the cut by three pins and the rest of the field...well let's just say, blew.

An interesting stat...average score for game 1 scratch was 219, game 2 189...???

Quarterfinals - Usually the winners are the focus of the matches but the quarterfinals were very interesting as the biggest loser came down to the 10th frame for all 3 matches. Lou V was first, needing a double to put pressure on Paul who would finish next. Lou got the first strike and then left a 1/2 ass 10 pin. Mr. Smoothie then steps up and guess what...? Doubles forcing Jack Weelmaa to double in the 10th. Jack left a 4 pin on a pretty good shot, giving Paul the biggest loser spot joining Gimena, Rob D and Mikie D in the semi-finals.

Semi Finals - Rob D and Paul had a pretty normal match, with Paul getting a few bad breaks and couldn't overcome the good carry and good bowling of the baldie, but the other match was a great one.

Tommy G. in the 10th forced Mikie D to get the first strike and count to win. Mike steps up, boom...gets the first strike...now he needs to get count to win...Mikie throws the shot light, real light and leaves a 5 pin count, what a douche...now he needs a spare to win by a pin...up steps Mikie...here goes the ball...looks good...makes the spare, wins by a pin.

Championship Match - I have to admit, Mikie D has impressed me. He has a great attitude, never gets mad and is bowling very well. He is a great competitor, gracious winner and a gracious loser and I couldn't be happier for him that he won last night. Rob may not be so happy, but he shot well and just got crushed...hard to beat a 274...congrats to Mikie D, our newest BBT Champion.
