Rockpile – 11-19-2014

We’ll take a week off of our bowling schedule next week as we shut down the League Bowling during the first week of deer hunting.

Speaking of deer hunting, stop in and sign up on our “Buck Board”. Any buck you bring in we’ll measure and take a picture to put up on our Buck Board photo wall.

We featured our annual Pfeiffer Tournament this past weekend. Dan Cassellius and Terry Bazille took first place honors a they competed against 10 other teams. Ken Schouten and Cindy Fouks took the second spot.

Cathy Berends and Wendy Gravermoen also competed in the Card Tournament and amazing as it sounds, managed not to win a single game!!! (They wanted me to put that tidbit in the Rockpile!!)

Things are great if you’re a Packer fan!! Rodgers and company have been putting on quite a show!!

Word has it that the Vikings’ new stadium will save a million dollars right off the top – they don’t have to build a trophy room!!!!

Packer Game

About halfway through the first quarter, Bob notices an empty seat located only 10 rows off the field, right on the 50 yard line. He decides to take a chance and makes his way through the stadium and around the security guards to the empty seat.

As he sits down, he asks the gentleman sitting next to him, “Is anyone sitting here?” The man says no.

Now, very excited to be in such a great seat for the game, Bob inquires of the man next to him, “This is incredible! Who in their right mind would have a seat like this at a Packer game and not use it?”

The man replies, “Well, actually the seat belongs to me, I suppose. I was supposed to come with my wife, but she passed away. This is the first game we haven’t been to together since we got married in 1966.”

“Well, that’s really sad,” says Bob. “But still, couldn’t you find someone to take the seat? A relative or a close friend?”

“No, the man replies, “They’re all at the funeral.”
