Rockpile – 5-2-2018

Our Hometown Champs ended up being the “East Bay Lodge” team. Their team consists of Bill Ross, Tony Cuturia, Brad Berends, Joe Grant, Toy Elmer and Spurt Samens.

On the Town and Country League, “Booz Bar & Grill” clinched the honors. Booz Bar & Grill is made up of Jessica Hager, Brian Casey and Carey Kuehl.

Congrats to both teams!! We will feature the Grand Championship roll-off this coming Wednesday night at 7:00.

Our 9-pin Tap Tournament finished up this past weekend. All we have left is the roll-off for the $1000 first place purse. We have an even dozen bowlers who qualified for the roll-off. The match is set up for this coming Friday night at 7:00.

For the first time ever, we have two gals that will compete for the 1st place spot. (To qualify for the roll-off, each bowler had to bowl a “900” series). I will post the winner next week in “The Rockpile”.

Only people from Wisconsin will truly understand!

The year is 2024 and the United States has just elected the first woman as President of the United States.

A few days after the election the president-elect calls her father in Milwaukee and asks, “So, Dad, I assume you will be coming to my inauguration?”

“I don’t think so.  It’s a long drive; your mom isn’t as young as she used to be, we’ll have the dog with us, and my arthritis is acting up in my knee.”

“Don’t worry about it, Dad. I’ll send Air Force One or another support aircraft to pick you up and take you home, and a limousine will pick you up at your door,” she said.

“I don’t know.  Everybody will be so fancy.  What would your mother wear?”

“Oh, Dad,” she replied,  “I’ll make sure she has a wonderful gown custom-made by one of the best designers in New York.”

“Honey,” Dad complained, “You know we can’t eat those rich foods you and your friends like to eat.”

The President-elect responded, “Don’t worry, Dad.  The entire affair is going to be handled by the best caterer in D.C. and I’ll ensure your meals are salt-free.  Dad, I really want you to come.”

So her parents reluctantly agreed, and on January 24, 2024 arrived to see their daughter sworn in as President of the United States.

The parents are seated in the front row.  The President’s dad sees that a Senator is sitting next to him and whispers, “You see that woman up there with her hand on the Bible, becoming President of the United States?”

The Senator whispered in reply, “Yes, sir, I sure do.”

Dad says proudly, “Her brother plays football for the Packers.”
