The Rockpile – 12-18-2013

Congratulations to the Papa’s Bar and Grill on the Thursday Nite Ladies bowling team. They wrapped up the second quarter honors on that league. Papa’s is made up of Kristen Hurtgen, Courtney Gorres, Sam Tellijohn and Amanda Schone.

 We have this coming week left for any team to sign up for the Holiday Tournament that will start next week. So far we have nine teams signed up. I’m hoping for approx. 20 teams. There still are some early spots available (6:00 start).

The following lady keglers picked up the following splits: Courtney Gorres 2-7-10, Mickie Kuehl 6-7 and Rosie Kohler 6-7-10.

The Sunday Nite Mixed Doubles finished up the first half this past weekend. First half winners are the “Out-4-Fun” team; their team consists of Danielle and Bobby Hall and Tauna Quinn and Steve Bazille.

Saturday Nite Mixed league also finished up the first half having the “B.O.O.B” team win the honors. Bernie and Peg Obermueller and Dave and Wendy Brandt make up that team!

Congratulations to both Saturday and Sunday Nite winners!!

State Trooper

A Virginia State trooper pulled a car over on I-64 about 2 miles south of the Virgina/West Virgina state line. When the trooper asked the driver why he was speeding, the driver said he was a Magician and Juggler and was on his way to Beckley, WV to do a show at the Shrine Circus. He didn’t want to be late.

The trooper told the driver he was fascinated by juggling and said if the driver would do a little juggling for him then he wouldn’t give him a ticket.

He told the trooper he had sent his equipment ahead and didn’t have anything to juggle. The trooper said he had some flares in the trunk and asked if he could juggle them. The juggler said he could, so the trooper got 5 flares, lit them and handed them to him. While the man was juggling, a car pulled in behind the patrol car. A drunken good old boy from West Virginia got out, watched the performance, then went over to the patrol car, opened the rear door and got in.

The trooper observed him and went over to the patrol car, opened the door and asked the drunk man what he thought he was doing. The drunk replied, “You might as well take my sorry butt to jail, because there ain’t no way I can pass that test.”
