Wrap Up: White Russians For Everyone (Except For The Kid With The Milk Allergy)
MBA CHAPTER- BOSTON, MA
What a terrible event for someone with a severe milk allergy. Aside from Ladd Jr., this a great excuse for some people to drink lots of vodka on a Sunday. A Sunday where the GOAT himself was expected to throw his best game, shortly after MBA Boston’s event was expected to end. What a wonderful pre-game it was.
The event started unusually with Cory Loder showing up BEFORE anyone else, making it his first early arrival to an event. With MBA’s first full event since its’ inception, the lanes were buzzing with excitement, and curiosity over the attention the giant trophy would bring us at the lanes.
With 19 people determined to win and one determined to continue her losing streak, the lanes filled up with an eclectic mix of teams. Whisperings, payoffs, and bets were heard coming from many of the players. Kaitlin Bowie arrived and yelled to everyone “Look what I brought! My cheering squad!”, and proceeded to pull all of her trashy ladies out of her bag.
The ladies did their job (get it?) and cheered Kaitlin on as she went to bowl her best game yet, but still racked up the most gutters.
The big surprise of the afternoon was lane #39 with Matt, Sean, Leigh, and Loder all bowling a very fantastic game, the lane producing the winning team of the event. Sean was heard being told by fiancé Alyssa that, “You CANNOT put that anywhere in our new addition”, to which Sean replied “Fine, can I at least have some quarters for the claw machine?”. Lucky for Alyssa, she walked out with an Emoji pillow, hopefully for the new addition.
Ladd Sr. worked to build himself back up, bowling a higher average than the past two events, hoping to place in the finals. Competition will be stiff with the MBA’s star bowler, Maureen, making it a tough finale already. Marathon man Kenny McCowan chose his favorite partner, but with his sights set on another prize, he didn’t do his best. (Despite skipping another bowling tournament for this one).
Chapter leader Maria bowled her worst game yet, younger brother Ladd heard heckling her “WHAT ARE YA..HUNGOVA?!” every time she went up to bowl. He’s lucky she didn’t throw milk at him.
Beth Hubbard drank her usual amount of whiskey and proceeded to help tally up the scores (correctly) and was extremely loud and shouted “ITS ME” when she realized she had finally, after much complaining, won her first dude award.
The MBA Boston Chapter had a great time and we all rallied back at the Capone family house to eat a ton of food, make fun of each other’s poor bowling skills, and watch our main man Tom bring us one step closer to victory.
This Chapter Leader is rounding up a strong team in hopes that Punk (Drunk) Rock Bowling NJ is announced soon, celebrating the one-year anniversary of a truly magical relationship formed at a bowling alley in New Jersey. Dan, Hillary, I am not picky about gifts but I would ignore the fact that paper giving is tradition for the first year.
Anyways, we will see you all next month for our final regular season game of the year!!! Cheers!
