Rob D Dominates Spring Major Finals, Dan Second

Runner-Up Dan L with BBT Spring Major Champion Rob D

After his season started off very, very slowly, Rob D. has put on a 2nd half surge in the BBT and Wednesday put on quite a show winning the 2009 BBT Spring Major in great fashion.

Shooting the final match against super nice guy Dan, Rob started with the first 9 strikes...and I mean every ball buried (no half hits!) to cruise to victory...now Dan was no chump shooting 226/241 but with the first 9 shoved up your tush...not much you can do except take the loss gracefully as Dan always does.

By the way, Rob left the 3/9 on his 10th ball...(monkey spanker)...here's how we got there:

Quarter Finals - 2 match games were shot, based upon qualifying position with 5 pins awarded for a win and 2.5 for a tie. 6 of the 8 advanced to semi-final # 1.

Dennis edged Andy by barely making a 3 pin after Andy left a 7-10 in the 10th...ouch...Rob D was on fire shooting 256/286 to pound Bober who shot 221/223 but was the biggest loser and moved on. Dan demolished Mike R 224/242 to 186/197 setting up the final 4.

Final 4 - Good matches in this round. Dennis started with an open but strung a 4 bagger before leaving a Den-Pin but Rob continued his hot shooting ending up with 227/257 to Grandpa D's 205/230...nice bowling Dennis, you big douche...

Match 2 was a great one. Bober had Dan on the ropes early, but opened in the 8th frame with a split giving Dan hope...and like any great bowler...Dan steps up and strikes out forcing Mr. Smooth to get the first strike in the 10th...ball rolls down the lane a smoothe as silk...4 pin.....oooops 4th place for Mr. S. Dan wins 208/223 to 216/218 setting the stage for the finals and the show of dominance by Rob D.

Congrats to Rob D, great, great shooting and also Dan and Dennis and Mr. Smooth. Sympathy out to Andy, tough break man.

Finally, our thanks are long over due to BBT Statistician and tournament director Kevin. He works very had putting together the great stats that we see every week. He runs the BBT like a pro and we would be nowhere without him. Great, Great, Great job you big douche.

Wednesday League Wrap-up

With 5 weeks left, the wild-card race is heating up. The Loudoo's are one point behind Power to Spare and tied with the Cohens...However, Power to Spare is tied for first with Waz n' Friends. Wazy's boys won a third so if they win the 3rd 3rd, 2 wild Card teams will advance...Power to Spare wins, then the Loudoo's have to beat the Cohens who they are tied with...whooosh...lots of possibilities.
