Rockpile – 2-9-2016

Tracy Lawson bowled the high single game of the year last week (for the ladies) by putting a very nice 259 game up on the tote board. Lawson rolled a 564 series along with the 259 game. Good job, Tracy!!!

We had two squads of 9-pin bowlers here over the weekend also. Chris Lawson jumped out ahead in Singles with a 861 series while Chris and his wife Tracy rolled a 1648 doubles score to take the lead in doubles.

Did you happen to watch the Superbowl?? I was happy to see that Payton Manning got a “W”. I think that was Manning’s “last rodeo” as he hinted earlier last week. Cam Newton showed his true colors after the loss, he acted like a two-year-old!!! What a whiner!! (Last year after their loss to the Patriots, quarterback Russell Wilson of Seattle stepped up to the microphone and blamed himself for the loss – no excuses.  Now he’s got class!!) Enough of that.

More Ole & Lena Stories

Ole: “Lars, I heard that you saved a man’s life in a restaurant last week.”

Lars: “Ya. I sure did. I advised him not to eat the lutefisk.”

Ole and Lars were visiting France. They went to an oyster bar where the waitresses were topless. Said Lars to the waitress, “Ve would like a dozen oysters…and can you bring them vun at a time?”
