mark it foul

My brother Mike bowls on his High School Bowling Team. See?

He's really good at it. He has three bowling balls and DVRs bowling on ESPN every Sunday morning. Obviously his favorite movie is that cult-classic bowling romp, Cape Fear.

Today was the state semi-finals. You might not know this, but high school bowling is to Utah as high school football is to Texas. Ever seen Friday Night Lights? It's just like that.

Cottonwood has a strong team this year, but it wasn't easy.



Cyprus High killed them in the last round, but thanks to Mike's last minute heroics (strike, strike, strike, 8) he won by three pins, which put Cottonwood a half a point up (don't ask me to explain the scoring system) and propelled them into the State Finals tomorrow. (I'll let you know how that goes) .



After today's match Mike was in a state of shock, knowing that one mis-step and it would have been all over.

Tomorrow, Cottonwood vs. Taylorsville/Juan Diego. I'm not going to get into the Taylorsville/Juan Diego controversy, but trust me, it's pure horse hockey.


Go Colts!
