Wii bowling tournament.

 The guys at MMPT have a new hobby.... BOWLING!  They've been meeting up on Sunday afternoons now, for oh, a couple of months.

So, Todd decided to have his buddies over to the house for a Wii bowling tournament.  As far as I know, he'd NEVER played Wii bowling before.  And I KNOW I hadn't!
 Some of us had decided to really turn it up a knotch and dress for the occasion.
 John Weslet came in his sweatbands, armbands, and even had his fingers taped up and ready for the event.
 Madison is always a trooper, so of course, he went all out.
 We each made our Mii's.   Todd is the red square in the bottom, with the goatee, afro, and shades on his head.
 Oh, and Madison, bless his heart, brought his own six pack... of creme soda!
 But not only that!  He also wore a fanny pack and in it, he had stashed his bottle opener!

 Todd had a couple of funny outfits, but when it came right down to it, he chickened out and went all boring like in his brown corduroy shirt!
 Pretty much, it was a shindig just for the "bowling team" and their wives.
 And they got all weird and acted like they needed to stretch out for their rounds.  John Wesley and Keif are total nuts!
 My Gabs was around for a little while.
 Todd made it very official with an actual bracket.
 And he managed that puppy from the beginning right down to the final slot on the winner's bracket.
 I don't mean to brag, buuuuutttt... guess who is that green chick with the glasses and pigtails!!
 Yep.  That's right, ol Mel.  I went to the loser's bracket right at the beginning and had to play SIX straight games to get back to the finals.

 But, as these scores will prove.... I did a pretty good job of battling back!
 This is Jeff, Jessi's other half!
 ANd Brian is a PT at my office.  He is one of the more "normal" ones!!
 It's funny that you can take the man out of a competition, but you can't take the competitive out of the man!!
 All of these guys really, really wanted to win!

 and yet... who is that I spy in the first slot, yet AGAIN!!
 and again!!
 Todd moved all the furniture (Wait... it's only ONE chair!  HIS!), so there would be plenty of space for this event to be a success.
 And I gotta admit, this room is PERFECT for this type of par-tay!!  And here you see our actual two finalists!!  KK (who is dating John Wesley) and Brian.
 And when it was all over, guess who the big winner was...
 Hint:  NOT KK!!

 and most definitely NOT KEIF!
 Nope.  And beg as he might....
 The big winner of the night was.... drumroll, please....
 He got to write his name on the bowling pin and all.   He is the first official winner of the Todd Groves Invitational Bowling Tournament!!  And so the tradition begins.

AWESEOME!! As a league bowler myself, I'm slightly offended by this post. Haha...no I'm not! I love how your group of peeps can have so much fun. Even playing Wii bowling! I think you should have a Wii boxing tournament! We have XBox 360 and I love to play golf with my son! Todd would probably be good at that game! :) Fun times!

Hugs from Missouri,

What a fun night. A bowling alley just opened locally where I live and there are 2 in Baton Rouge. My friends known as "da Crew" go bowling about once a month or so recently. Fun times.

How fun! I am going to invest in a Wii so my friends and I can have something to do besides watch movies. Yeah my place is a great place to hang out at.... Ask my friends :) Hosting a get--together tonight for the first time in over a month. One of our friends within our group passed away unexpectedly last month. :(

Looks like fun! I can always bowl much better on the Wii than in real life! The ball is so much heavier than the remote! Hmmmm....
