Some days on the lanes you really don’t have it

I remember again why I only bowl in The Post-Standard Masters tournament every, oh, four or five years. My Limp Lizard teammate Steve Vicik and I signed up for the hundreds-of-bowlers in four sessions tourney again this year. We rolled at Strike N Spare Lanes in Mattydale, N.Y., at the 9 a.m. session Sunday morning.…

This time Steve goes big

Two weeks in a row, Limp Lizard swept all seven points in the Thursday Night Men’s League at Bowling Green in North Syracuse. Two weeks in a row, one of my teammates rolled an amazing series. This time around, Steve threw a 246-221-247-714, following Tiny’s fantastic 742 of the prior week. And the three-game total…

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…
