i said about 24.hrs ago that if d.socks beat me by 100 in bowling i would retire prezofdeath from blazersedge.well blazersfans the worst case scenerio surfaced.d.socks beat me last nite. now on a very serious note,this is not the end of the world.I still will be back next time,while I'm gone I'll learn how to get in much much better conditioning.the days of eating cupcakes and start eating real healthy foods which will definately help me become more of a monster bowler down the road. the way i look at it is I've been redshirted and while I'm gone,guys like Tinfoil*Xman has to grow up as simple as that.tinfoil must give us at least a 65-70 point game this season.instead of the usual 25-40.philthy start earning your pay when see you have a single pin left drill the damn shot.we will have to show patience,and let the young bowlers grow up together.like the future champions some of them will be down the road.but this next*final statement is for the fans and all the people of the city of portland.the state of oregon and bowling fans all around the world.for the guys who hung around during the bedgeless era.my heart definately go out to you guys.the day came and went and now the dream of seeing 100% socks ownage is delayed for 1 more bowling trip.guys just"keep your head up". everything is going to be alright hell if we waited for some of us a lifetime or just a generation for others.great days are ahead for all of you.just stay the course8god will shine on us. keep smiling and enjoy the new guys develop into bowling contenders in 09-10.the courage and confidence was shown yesterday.is the reason why BRP bought drinks for this young dynamo.to me myself who really believed he let the franchise down.i just cant worry that's what philthyanimal*x.man is for.the 2 building blocks of greatness.x.man will still be a monster this season.and philthyanimal is philthyanimal a real leader of young men.what better 2 young men you want in a foxhole with you in a time of crisis. to Dougall well you heard it from our leader brp he's going to start playing you too.kid just play and grow,and everything else will workout for itself.and last but not least to the new bowlingfans.yes we know what they're called. listen this franchise is going to need you now more than ever.please please don't "jump the shark"now.
