Alright, so our bowling league banquet night was on Saturday. It was actually ok, except for the part where I WAS TOTALLY ROBBED OF WHAT WAS RIGHTFULLY MINE (probably)!!! And by this, I mean the award for “most improved bowler”. See, apparently it doesn’t matter what your starting average was at week one, or week three (three weeks being the time you need to establish your average). No. The starting week was week 6. Tell me that doesn’t suck!!! I mean, that’s certainly not the beginning of the bowling season, that’s a month and a half into it! So, obviously, to ensure that I get this award next year, I’m going to have to bowl really sucky for the first six weeks and then kick ass. It’s ok though, because I was also disappointed to learn that there were no trophies to be given to any of the award winners. What’s up with THAT??? Plus, my chicken was dry (not to mention covered with mushrooms), and Chris’ steak was fatty (not to mention covered with gravy).
Ok, my rant is done. Actually, the nice thing about the banquet is that everyone got a prize. Chris received recognition for scoring a game over 225, and I would’ve received recognition for scoring a game over 150, but something was messed up so I’ll get my fridge magnet prize in the fall. Sad face. However, our team won the league champion award for coming in first place overall (which earned us $93.50)! Our team also came in first place during sweeps week (another $37.50 in winnings…cha-ching!)! And I won 4th place during sweeps week for the women’s singles group ($5.00 – booyah – Chris won 5th place in the men’s singles sweeps week, so he only got $4.00)! Everyone even got some money back…Chris and I took home a total of almost $300 in winnings! Plus, there were door prizes. Some of them were horrendously awful, but we actually walked away with the best prizes available: a folding camp chair, an ultra-soft snuggle blanket, a beverage thermos, and a big hanging flower pot full of purple petunias.
I’m looking forward to seeing what rewards will be reaped from participating in the summer Tuesday Superbowl league!
