Rockpile – 1-8-2014

The second half ended for a couple of leagues in the last week. On the Sat. Nite Live Mixed Doubles league, the “In-Laws” etched out the victory by a slim 3.5 point win over my 3 C’s team. “In-Laws” are made-up of Dale and Karla Obermueller and Dan and Rita Anderson.

On the Senior circuit, “Thrivent” also snuck out the 2nd half by the same 3.5 point margin, outlasting the “Boondocks Boys”. Thrivent’s team consists of Ken Graff, Bob Bartz, Lowell Johnson, Mark Maes and Rich Holeman.

Congratulations to both teams!!

We held our Christmas Tournament over the Holiday Break and here are the top five teams: 1st place – Leaker’s II; 2nd place – Leaker’s Old Timers, 3rd place – Standaert Men, 4th place – Family ChiroCare, 5th place – The Starters. The winning team, Leaker’s II, was made up of Gary Standaert, Roy Stevens, Jordon Wink, Dale Obermueller, and  T.J. Wink. This team really lit ’em up and was about 150 pins ahead of the next top team.  Great bowling fellas!!!

We had 25 teams participate and I want to thank everyone for the great tournament!!

British Airways

Shortly after a British Airways flight had reached its cruising altitude, the captain announced: “Ladies and Gentlemen, this is your captain. Welcome to Flight 293, non-stop from London Heathrow to New York. The weather ahead is good, so we should have a smooth, uneventful flight. So sit back, relax, and …… OH…MY GOD!”

Silence followed.

Some moments later, the captain came back on the intercom. “Ladies and Gentlemen, I’m sorry if I scared you. While I was talking to you, a flight attendant accidently spilled coffee in my lap. You should see the front of my pants!”

From the back of the plane, and Irish passenger yelled…

“For the luvva Jaysus….you should see the back of mine!”
