Rockpile – 2-7-2018

Doug “Wado” Standaert was successful in his bid to bowl a “300” game last Thursday afternoon on the Senior league. Standaert rolled his perfect game on lanes 1 and 2. This was the second 300 thrown this year. His cousin Brent Standaert, bowled 300 back in December. Way to go Doug!!

Matt McGee bowled a 278 game last week on the Hometown League. McGee threw 11 out of 12 strikes!!! Great job!!

Jon Standaert converted the very tough 6-7-10 split on the Saturday Nite Live league.

Brad Gregory from St. Paul put up a 936 series (with handicap) over the weekend to take the front spot in our 9-Pin Tap Tournament. Gregory bowled two 300 games and a 298. He was pounding the pocket!!!

We have a crew coming in from Spooner and Colfax this coming weekend.

Women are such logical problem solvers!

A fifteen-year-old came home with a Porsche, and his parents began to yell and scream, “Where did you get that car?” He calmly told them, “I bought it today.” “With what money!?” demanded his parents. “We know what a Porsche costs.” “Well,” said the boy, “this one cost me fifteen dollars.” The parents began to yell even louder. “Who would sell a car like that for fifteen dollars?” they asked.

“It was the lady up the street,” said the boy. “Don’t know her name – they just moved in. She saw me ride past on my bike and asked me if I wanted to buy a Porsche for fifteen dollars.” “Oh my goodness!” moaned the mother. “She must be a child abuser. Who knows what she will do next? John, you go right up there and see what’s going on.”

So the boy’s father walked up the street to the house where the lady lived and found her out in the yard calmly planting flowers. He introduced himself as the father of the boy to whom she had sold a Porsche to for fifteen dollars and demanded to know why she did it.

“Well,” she said, “this morning I got a phone call from my husband.  I thought he was on a business trip, but I learned from a friend he has run off to Hawaii with his secretary. Then, apparently, she stole all his money and stranded him there! Well, he called me, without a dollar to his name, and asked me to sell his new Porsche and send him the money. So…that’s exactly what I did.”
