The Rockpile – 4-9-2014

The Sunday Nite Mixed league had their championship roll-off this past Sunday night. It was a good match, but the team “Out-4-Fun” outlasted their competition of “Main Street Mayhem”.

Out-4-Fun’s team is made of Tauna Quinn, Steve Bazille, Bobby and Danielle Hall. Congratulations kids!!!

Our Men’s Senior league will have their championship roll-off this coming Thursday afternoon. It will be a battle between my “Leaker’s” team and “Thrivent”. I’ll give you the results next week.

Several more leagues will be finishing up league play this week. There also is a championship roll-off on the Wednesday Noon league as the “M&M Bar” will face “Mark’s Trucking.”

Our 9-pin Tournament is getting close to the end also as we only have three more weekends left. Most of our bowlers are ready for this long winter to be done and many are itching to get out on the golf course.

Lent

Each Friday night after work, Ole would fire up his outdoor grill on the shore of Big Stone Lake and cook a venison steak. But all of Ole’s neighbors were Catholic…and since it was Lent, they were forbidden from eating meat on Friday.

The delicious aroma from the grilled venison steaks wafted over Orftonville all the way to Clinton, and was causing such a problem for the Catholic faithful that they finally talked to their priest.

The Priest came to visit Ole, and suggested that he becomes Catholic.

After several classes and much study, Ole attended Mass…and as the priest sprinkled holy water over him he said, “You were born a Lutheran, and raised a Lutheran, but now you are a Catholic.”

Ole’s neighbors were relieved, until Friday night arrived, and the wonderful aroma of grilled venison filled the neighborhood.

The Priest was called immediately by the neighbors, and as he rushed into Ole’s yard, clutching a rosary and prepared to scold him, he stopped and watched in amazement. There stood Ole, clutching a small bottle of holy water, which he carefully sprinkled over the grilling meat and chanted: “You were born a deer, raised a deer, but now you are a walleye.”
