Say hello to the Limp Lizard bowling squad

I am quite happy with the new sponsor of our squad in the Thursday Night Men’s Bowling League at Bowling Green in North Syracuse. Limp Lizard has replaced Cici’s. Thankfully. At long last, in my book. We rolled an entire season not receiving anything from the buffet pizza franchise that closed its Syracuse area locations…

A sticky situation at our bowling league

I was the first man up on lane four for our eight minutes of bowling warmup Thursday night. Old Man Bialczak, fresh off a day hanging out with Ellie B aka Dogamous Pyle at the Little Bitty in the Syracuse city neighborhood of Eastwood and anxious to loosen up these creaky joints of mine, carefully…

Salad or something bigger?

The Pie Guys for a quick dinner sounded good to my dear wife Karen and I as my Thursday Night Bowling League picked up again after our two-week break for the holidays. Karen, wise woman that she is, ordered the small antipasto, with Italian dressing. We know from experience that these folks make a mean…

First half ends with a 7th-place finish

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. Nope. When the first 15 weeks were said and done, we’d finished in seventh place out of…

Another hot bowling Sunday

We rolled our second Sunday special session last week. This time, I arrived for the 10 a.m. start slightly sleepy-eyed after working the closing shift at my new job. My practice rolling at Bowling Green in North Syracuse did not go well, as I felt like an old man pleading with his joints to loosen…

Let’s call it splitsville

Good news about my bowling team in the Thursday Night Men’s League. Heading into last week’s action, we were officially in a three-way tie for first. We had the least amount of pinfall of the trio, which meant officially we stood above just nine of the 12 squads in our league. But, with five weeks…

Sock it to me one more time

Technically I was right. When I showed up for the Thursday Night Men’s League at Bowling Green in North Syracuse on Sunday Morning — and yes, you read that right — our squad was listed second on the standings sheet. Much to my surprise, though, we had the same record as the team listed above…

First place for my bowling squad after week six

I knew we’d been doing well after a slow start this season. Cici’s Pizza was rolling along OK in the Thursday Night Men’s League at Bowling Green. Our squad of five was making the most of our handicap pins through the first six weeks on the cozy 12 lanes in North Syracuse, N.Y. But still…

We’re back on the lanes at Bowling Green

Let’s call it my awesome overlap. Golf season ended Wednesday night. Bowling season started Thursday night. The squad was rolling in Bowling Green. For some reason, my week one brain always tells me that 6:30 p.m. gives me plenty of time to get to North Syracuse to lace up my shoes for those precious minutes…

Eleven strikes in a row for Tom Stagnitta.

A pretty exciting almost for Tom ends at 288

Big excitement bubbled for our CiCi’s Pizza team in the Thursday Night Men’s League at Bowling Green Lanes in North Syracuse, N.Y. When last I reported on our fortunes in this second half of the season, we’d started the night in fourth place, but had won just two of seven points that week, and I’d…
