Comments:

I'm an avid tenpin bowler, having returned to league play in 2008 after about 15 years away; I won the monthly house tournament @ Westgate Lanes in Oct. 1989, and write a blog (mostly) about the local bowling scene (homepage link). League highs are a 288 game and a 707 series, with a 290 game bowled during open bowling. I also serve on the Brockton Bowling Association's board of directors, and manage their Facebook page. More recently, I became a member of the International Bowling Media Association (IBMA).

This website recently became special when an older half sister I had only heard rumors about contacted me through the site looking for me. I look forward to getting acquainted with her. :)

School Story:

Favorite school memories (in no particular order): The march to City Hall in '83 (the official one, mind you, not the impromptu one the day before that a lot of us got suspended for), the student-faculty basketball games (the faculty did their best to play like the Harlem Globetrotters, but, unlike their Washington Generals counterparts, the students usually won), my classes in the TV studio freshman and sophomore years, the State Student Advisory Council orientation on Thompson Island (in May) and the Simon's Rock training week (in the summer) in '83, ace-ing my term paper in Sophomore English (which Ms. Jarmak started to use as a model paper afterwards), Dr. Adams' Computer Programming I class (BASIC language; wish I could've taken Computer Programming II, which was Pascal and would've given me a leg up in college), Mr. Tingblad yukking it up in Notehand class (I was in the last one ever offered and got to keep my book), Dr. Donnelly letting his students play Monopoly in US History class (but with rules meant to simulate the Great Depression), the Dickie Goodman-style "break-in" recording I did which was played over the school intercom during morning announcements in the week before the Thanksgiving Day game in '81
