Bowling and other things, dude

I was forced to clarify on this post: who exactly it was that managed to pick up the split in the second game.

So a new season of our bowling league started last night and it was tons of fun.
The way it works is kind of like tournament-style play, where for the first game, two teams play against each other on two lanes, alternating between the two lanes between each frame. For the second game all the teams are shuffled around and the alternating lane gameplay starts again.
For our league I think there are something like 20 teams or so, each of five people, and each having at least two girls (a requirement to form a team).

You can check it all out at the Austin Sports and Social Club website: http://www.austinssc.com/

Anyway, for the first game things were going pretty well; we ended up winning. At the very end of the first game though, one of our opponents picked up a spare on a split, and informal rules dictate that pretty much everyone has to take a shot when someone picks up a spare on a split.

So we took shots.

Second game, my amazingly awesome girlfriend picked up a spare on a split early in the game.

So we took shots.

After several beers and multiple shots, we ended up not even breaking 500 between the five of us on the second game. Our opponents broke 700.

Well, so we won the first game and lost the second game, and got pretty drunk, too.
Very fun night, have some pics!
