You ever watch a movie and at the end you’re like “Wow, I gotta admit, I just did not see that sh*t coming!” Well, I’m about 90% sure that’s what’s going on right here.
Josh “The Great Gatskee” Ganeles has been playing in the Raleigh league since it’s inception. That makes this his 11th straight skeeson. And each skeeson he’s had to watch other vets step up and win the Chalice and win the HRT while he sat there twiddling his thumbs and losing while his peers mocked him and made him the butt of jokes.
But earlier last week I dubbed this his skeeson: The Skeeson of Gatskee. The Skeeson where he finally gets his Chalice and possibly even the HRT title to boot. It’d been long overdue and he’s now proven himself to be among the elite rollers. (Plus, nobody wants to see him break my ridiculous streak of 11 skeesons in a row without a Chalice.)
But then he came into week 1, threw up a 502 score (including 3o hundos and scores of 72,72,72,and 90 in his hundo rounds) and lead his team to a 1082, easily claiming first place by over 100 points. And the cherry on top? He rolled a perfect game (900) in the tenth frame. A feat that has only been accomplished 3 other times in the history of the league!
So that got me thinking. Maybe Gatskee had this evil plan all along. Maybe, just maybe he’s been purposely not winning each skeeson because he’s had his sights set on something bigger. Why capture Robin to try to get to Batman when you can wait a little longer, plan a little longer, then capture Batman and unmask him in front of the whole world?
And I think maybe that’s been Gatskee’s plan. Forget the Chalices and being the best in Raleigh. He wants to be the best in the ‘Nation. Maybe that’s the twist at the end of this movie.
Now I’m not saying this is a foregone conclusion and homeboy is taking home the Super Roll hardware. But absolutely do not sleep on him. And if you do, don’t snore….his cats can’t stand it.
