Rod Lost But At Least Alex's Cookies Were Fabulous!

Monday night's match pitted BF Sweet Touch vs. GF Alex B. Keaton. Who would win the grudge match?

The coin toss went the way of Arthur Boccerelli.

Arthur took it to Rod. Ouch. Before Rod knew it, he had been decimated 7-3 in the first game. The second game started well and Rod took a 5-0 lead. But that only set up a horrendous collapse. Arthur B took the second game 7-5.

The Fonzie ladies pose by the depressing evidence. Ay!!!!!!

Last season Rod started 7-0. Thus far, Rod is 1-2 in 2010. Yikes.

The most exciting news about this night (other than the amazing cookies) is that Lauren made a movie. Too bad the results weren't better.

No 7-0 Start for Rod This Season

After dismantling some new team last week with knocking balls in their name, we had to face top notch talent in the second week.

It didn't go so well for us.

Last week, we didn't give up a point and cruised to two 7-0 victories.

Last night it seemed like it might be the inverse.

We lost the first game 7-0 in two frames.

In the second game we went down 4-0 before storming back to take a 6-5 lead.

We had plenty of opportunities in 2 of the last 3 frames to win (and got lucky in the the next-to-last frame that they didn't put us away) but the bocce gods weren't with the Rods last night. Despite our valiant efforts, Team Rod went down swinging 7-6 in the second game.

Rod hopes to rebound against the Fonz next match.

Season Record: 1-1
