Rockpile – 11-14-2012

We finally put up a “700” series on the tote board last week as Doug “Wado” Standaert came through with the first “Seven” last week on the Hometown league. Standaert bowled a “705” series with games of 242, 237, and 226.

A couple of gals bowled really well also last week as Cindy McCarthy bowled her first “600” series Saturday night with a 621 series. Lori Klinger rolled a 615 on the Wednesday Nite ladies league. Good bowling!!

Speaking of the Wednesday Nite ladies league, there is quite a shootout for the top average sport as Cindy Rassbach and Lori Klinger are all knotted up with 181 averages. Should be a great fight to see who wins out at the end of the season.

How about our Glenwood City Hilltopper Football Team!!  They’re heading for Camp Randall this coming Thursday to take on Potosi for the Division 7 Championship. Action begins at 10:00. They are scheduled to be broadcast on WQOW Channel 18 Eau Claire. We are featuring a tailgate party here starting at 8:00 a.m. Thursday morning. Come join the fun!! Go Toppers!!

Pickups of the Week: Chuckie DeSmith and Mark Maes both converted the 6-7-10. Kathy Samens 6-7 split.

Birdie with a yellow bill, hopped upon my window sill, cocked a shining eye and says: “What would you do if I hit you in the eye…bawl??” Bee Boop!!

Momism of the Week: “The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree!!”

Ole and the Beer Bet

A Texan walks into Leaker’s Place and clears his voice to the crowd of drinkers. He says, “I hear you Wisconsinites are a bunch of hard drinkers. I’ll give $500 dollars to anybody in here who can drink 12 bottles of beer back-to-back.”

The room is quite … no one takes up the Texan’s offer.

Ole gets up and leaves. Thirty minutes later Ole shows back up and taps the Texan on the shoulder. “Is your bet still good?” asks Ole.

The Texan says, “Yes” and asks the bartender to line up 12 bottles of beer.

Immediately Ole tears into all 12 of the bottles, drinking them all back-to-back.

The other bar patrons cheer as the Texan sits in amazement. The Texan gives Ole the $500 and says, “If ya don’t mind me askin’, where did you go for that 30 minutes you were gone?”

Ole replies, “Oh, I had to go to the bar down the street to see if I could do it first.”
