Rockpile – 2-4-2015

We’ll launch our 9-pin Tap Tournament this Friday Nite as we have a group of 20 keglers from Colfax coming in to get the tournament rolling.

There are only a few spots a pin, so if you want to get a crew signed up, call or stop in to check on dates and times.

If you watched the Big Game on Sunday, you probably wondered what Russell Wilson was doing, throwing the ball on the 1 yard line with only 20 seconds to go!! I sure thought it was a dumb move. Although I didn’t feel too bad about the “Sea-chickens” losing. They had one coming!!! (Remember the Seattle-Green Bay game a couple of years ago???) Oh well!

Only 62 more days until the Brewers kickoff the baseball season!!

I am sorry to hear, smiling Jill,
That your birthday’s no longer a thrill
All your friends think your great,
and should still celebrate.
You’re not old, you’re just over the hill
