When last I reported in from the Thursday Night Men’s League rolling at Bowling Green in North Syracuse, our Cici’s Pizza squad was battling mightily to remain among the top teams for the first half of our season.
When the first 15 weeks were said and done, we’d finished in seventh place out of the 12 teams in our league. The last two skirmishes, where we’d one just one of the three games for two of seven total points each time, did us in.
I finished rather strong, though, and completed the first half with an average one pin higher than the 163 finish for last season.
We’re now on a two-week hiatus because, well, Thursday night happened to fall on Christmas and then New Year’s Eve.
Our league mate Andy took the opportunity to greet each of us with a gift this past week.
His realty company, Keller Williams, stepped up two seasons ago to become the title sponsor of our league. And now this.
Thank you, sir. I thought it was worth a plug here.
Andy is a good man. He ran a toy drive this December. Yes, I brought it a new, unwrapped gift for the cause. Many league members did. I saw them piled on the counter two weeks in a row. I like our league.
Onward we go in the second half. Oh. We went 2-5 the first week, too.
Have you received a gift from an unexpected source this year, and if so, what was it? If you contributed to a drive this season, where was it held? What would you do with the gift Andy gave?
