Roger Murdock was Throwing Rocks Tonight!
In the ever competitive Milwaukee Architects/Engineers Bowling League, Roger Murdock III managed to roll a 724 series for the first 700 series of his life. Roger Murdock is pretty proud of this accomplishment and knows if his father, Roger Murdock II, and his grandpa, the original Roger Murdock, were still alive, they would be pretty proud of him as well. Roger Murdock III still has a way to go to approach Roger Murdock II's bowling accomplishments (I don't have a banner hanging in a Racine bowling alley like my dad did) but hopefully this is a sport I get better at with age.
A solid 220-267-237 night help raise the average to 210. So, while I have declared that ever being good at golf being a lost battle, there is still hope for bowling. Prior to the start of the league this year, I had not bowled since I bowled 6 games with a house ball during the Lane Meyer bachelor party bowling marathon. That may have forced me to concentrate more and spurred me on to this season. Looking forward to the start of the Lane Meyer-Port Washington Thursday Night Bowling Spectacular starting up in a couple of weeks.
