What began as a planned paintball playful employee grudge/outing eventually turned into a Thursday afternoon filled with much bigger balls. Bowling balls.
The two-team, two-game tournament left one team standing tall and the other in the gutter. TM Administrator Kris was picked last, but did not let that hinder his or his team’s performance. His team (Team One) consisted of himself (Kage) Anthony (T-Bizzle), Tyler (Tae-Bo), Seth (Sailing) Jennifer (J-Dubs) and Dean (Deano) while their competition (Team Two) was Dwight (Dizzy), Eric (Easy G), Meredith (Mere), Jeff (Rhymin J) and Ryan (Rype).
Team One left the lanes on top, beating Team Two both games regardless of a hefty handicap in both games. Dwight, or Dizzy, was left dazed after only scoring 97 and 107-point games and rolling a grand total of 14 gutter balls; something that tickled the opposing teammates to no end. The winners were promised donuts the following day, but were left hungry, instead having to forage for their own food here in downtown Royal Oak. There are rumors that bagels might appear, but who knows?
Here is a rundown of how the games went: The night’s top performer through both games was Ryan scoring a combined total of 250 points while Jennifer nipped at his heels scoring 226 points while the bottom two players who played two games were the men in charge, Dean and Dwight with 199 and 204 points, respectively.
Here are the scores for both games:
T-Bizzle: 110 points (he did not bowl the second game).

Sailing: 132 and 83, for 215 points.
J-Dubs: 130 and 96 for 226 points.
