Team Just Bowl Better entered the final week of the season with a share of 4th place.
A quick glance at the standings sheet confirmed that we needed to take all four points from the 3rd placed team to leapfrog them.
Sometimes all the motivation in the world isn't enough to get the job done. Sometimes things just don't go your way, no matter how hard you try.
It didn't end pretty. All four of us struggled and finished off the season with one of our worst team performances of the year. We all lost one pin of average, not an easy feat, given the number of games played, but we found a way.
Our win-loss record over the last five weeks? A dismal 3 wins and 17 losses! I wish that was a typo but it isn't. We essentially gave this league away in the final month.
I'm shaking my head in disbelief as I write this. I don't want to even guess where we'll end up. To add insult to injury, our payout, which we thought was next week, has been postponed to June 6th.
At least my last fall season is over, that's the good news. For the next 13 weeks, I will only be bowling once a week, on Wednesdays. I've been bowling three times a week, every week, for the last two years straight.
The wheels have started to come off, I need to diversify a little bit this summer, pick up golf again or something. As long as it isn't bowling, I should be ready to go by the time next season rolls around.
Well, that's the plan, anyway.
