2nd 300 Almost second 800 with Eraser PBT

Just thought I'd share
Shot my first sanctioned 300 and 800 (812) series on 9/29/06. I only bowled 39 games that year in that league and retired the Eraser after that season. Used a few other balls after that, average keeps sliding for the next 2.5 seasons. So I decided to pull my Eraser out of the closet one day, can't get my thumb into the ball, so I set it aside. For the next few weeks, my kids ( I have 2 year old twin boys) have been rolling this ball around on the floor, playing with it and what not. I tripped over it one morning, picked it up and decided that I am going to sand the thumb hole out so I could at least get my thumb in the ball. take it to bowling that night, first ball I grab for practice, still rolls pretty good. Figured I have nothing to lose, average is down 14 pins from last season and close to 20 pins from 2 seasons ago. Out of the gate, shoot my second 300 with it and wind up with a 781 series on 6/26/09. Proceed to shoot 642 and 675 the next 2 nights with it. Guess I should have never put the Eraser away LOL. Like I said, just thought I'd share
