The 258 Special

The Dude abides. Here are our text messages before a career game.

That set up 3 person bowling at Facenda Whitaker. I brought my shammy cloth to wipe off the oil of the house ball.

originalFarva: What’s this?

Rabbit: A chamois cloth.
Farva: Ha. Lucky guess. I just lost a buck. To myself.

Big Wevs came out of retirement throwing the dice ball and won the first game. The Dude took game 2 rolling a 225. I even added the pic on Instagram using the caption “rolling a casual 225 on a Thursday night”. I was pretty proud of myself besting my old high of 214.

Wevs took game 3 by ousting the Wads with 2 strikes in the 10th. This set up the magical 4th game. The Dude opened frame 1. Hardly ridden with negative feelings that the game was lost, the Dude rolled 8 straight strikes. Wevs has the video which I’ll try to get. I spared the 10 and striked my final ball for a 258. Career high and admiration from the entire alley. Especially the HIGH school stoners next to us.

A 258 game

The party ensued afterward and now I sit waiting for my next opportunity for a perfect game. Hilarious text after it happened.

The 258 is a bit below an ace in golf but still a decent accomplishment. I had a few Jersey’s in the run so it was hardly ideal but I’ll take it. I finished 6 games with a 185 avg, the Wads was 173, and the Wevs dropped to a 155 after barely breaking 100 his last game due to thumb concerns. Also noted was Wads losing the first 5 games and being down 30 bucks and coming through in the final game with a 200+ to break even.

Conservative PHL Snowfall Estimate – 1″-120″

winter-snow-tree-blizzardThe weather is turning and the first major snowfall of the year is predicted for this afternoon.  I’m not a huge snow guy.  I find it more disrupting than enjoyable but to basically get through all of January without a storm isn’t too bad.

This weekend included Radio 104.5 Winter Jam.  I stayed in on Friday to be ready for Saturday.  I met with the Shee at around 11:30 am and then met Weens on the Subway.    Weens really wanted to see Andrew McMahon but he didn’t let anyone know this beforehand or else our planning would have been different. We heard “Cecilia and the Satellite” from the background stage while standing in line to Ween’s disappointment.

After missing Andrew McMahon we went in and ripped a few shots and downed a few beers to get hyped for the next band.  Walk the Moon was next and this is the footage I got.  I feel like such a tool filming so that explains the poor everything.

Strip Club WalletThe rest of the concert went by quickly. Jordan and I knifed through the crowd to get closer to Gaslight Anthem but it was nothing out of the ordinary. I awoke on my couch at about 12am which was a pleasant surprise.  This is what my wallet looked like.  Can anyone guess where I was between the hours of 6pm and 8pm?

t440x300A spur of the moment bowling trip was also lined up on Sunday with me and the Shee. We went to Facenda Whitaker and ran into Sam L. (not my brother Sam) and crew and we rolled 4 games. It was probably the first time I was bowling in a year and finished with a 675 4 game total for a 168 average. Shee rolled a 200+ game but didn’t win the pin count.

This is going to turn into a weekly event on Sunday’s.  I give Facenda lanes a solid A and would drive 30 minutes to get to real lanes when compared to the city.  The house balls are high quality and the price was only $12 bucks per person for 2 and a half hours.  If anyone is interested, let me know and I’ll let you know when we go.
