Your Skeeson vii brewskee mug winners...
After coming back from a nearly 60-point week-8 deficit to snatch the BMT's top seed, ASkeeLBrew continued their run into the playoffs. They topped Skee's Company in the first round, bested a surging Full Urkel in the semifinals, and thwarted I Am Brewt — which had been the top team most of the regular skeeson — in the finals.
The Machine found his groove at just the right time, and DaVinskee and Stepfather of Dragons continued their assault on the 40 and 50, propelling themselves to victory with three consecutive matches above 980.
dan smith will teach you how to broty
Dan Smith is an expert at both acoustic and electric guitar. He also knows how to destroy 40s and 50s. With a run that went through Stepfather of Dragons, Priceless, and, finally, top-seeded DaVinskee, Smitty solidified his place in Brewskee-Ball LA lore with his second consecutive BROTY.
Ten frames of skee-ball: $10. One triple Cheeseburger: $15. A second Hundo challenge:
Priceless. The Hundo Challenge started slow for Priceless. She sat in a tie for 10th place after the first round, but she didn't let that get her down. She came out and fired five hundos in both the second and third rounds to take down her second career Hundo Challenge title.
10th ball award
The John Fisk 10th Ball Award is the greatest honor in Brewskee-Ball. It goes to the person (or team) in the league who most exemplifies the spirit, kinship, esteem, and excellence — S.K.E.E. — that make up the pillars of Brewskee-Ball. More than a Mug or a BROTY or a Hundo Challenge or any other trophy, the 10th Ball Award represents the beating heart of the league, and the winner captures the essence of what Brewskee-Ball is all about. It truly is an honor.
Jayne “Gutterball” Clark
Nominating Jayne “Gutterball” Clark for the 10th Ball Award presented a bit of a conundrum. Her very nickname stems from the fact that she won a startling five consecutive Gutter Awards this season. Can a person who so clearly and obviously earned those inauspicious accolades truly be worthy of a 10th Ball, the very antithesis of the Gutter Award? I mean, yeah. Cuz all those Gutter Awards were in jest. Because Jayne is like the whole league’s sibling — we can give her shit, but anyone else who does is in for a world of hurt. As one of the more spirited rollers in the league and the unofficial leader of the Late-Night Skeleton Crew, many of Jayne’s contributions to the league are visible every Tuesday. (Seriously, is there a roller who isn’t friends with her?) But she’s also indispensable behind the scenes. If you’ve ever seen a Brewskee-Ball Los Angeles poster that looks professionally done, that’s Jayne. A beautiful yet informative Brewskee-Ball Facebook ad? Also Jayne. And the awesome league shirts we get at the end of each season? Jayne again. Jayne has done so much for the league — both in front of and behind the scenes — that she still has an incredibly deep reservoir of 10th Ball goodwill remaining even after the plethora of Gutter Awards.
Here’s the list of the Skeeson 7 award winners. Congratulations to all the DaVinskees who won titles this skeeson!

How It Works
What Is Brewskee-Ball?
Since establishing the first-ever competitive Skee-Ball league in New York City in 2005, Brewskee-Ball has fashioned a loyal network of teams, players, and fans across the country. Brewskee-Ball is currently played in Los Angeles, Brooklyn, San Francisco, Austin, Gainesville, and Wilmington, N.C. — from skee to shining skee.
What Do I Need to Know?
• A Brewskee-Ball team consists of three rollers, each of whom roll 10 frames per match (nine balls per frame). Each match is played against one other three-roller team, with the goal of getting the highest score you can.
• The regular skeeson consists of eight weeks of head-to-head matches (one match per team each week). The post-skeeson consists of three tournaments: the Brewskee Mug Tournament (for teams), the BROTY (for individuals), and the Hundo Challenge (for hitting hundos like a sick-ass boss).
I Want In. What's Next?
• Form a team (three people per team, plus alternates). If you don't have a team, you can sign up as an individual and we'll find you teammates!
• Craft a witty team name (e.g. The Skee Amigos, Just Brew It, Nevertheless Skee Persisted).
• Sign up below. For team registrations: You can sign up as a full team all at once or each person can sign up individually. (Alternates do not need to register.)
• Registration fee includes eight weeks of regular-season Skee-Ball plus playoffs, three league shirts per team, end-of-season trophies, and unlimited fun.
