Storyline

The gang at Cheers is in competition with the gang at Gary's Olde Towne Tavern again. This time it's baseball, and Cheers is whooped, despite having former major leaguer Sam on the team. Gary comes to Cheers to gloat, which leads to another contest, this time in bowling. Diane not only has contempt for the competition, but for bowling itself as well. Carla figures that all bowlers are beer guzzling slobs, and thus Cheers has a shot at winning. It doesn't seem likely after the tryouts. However Carla finds out that they might have an ace in the hole in the form of Woody. Woody has other things on his mind though as he hasn't bowled since 'the accident', where his ball made a pin fly through the air which in turn struck an innocent bystander. Woody refuses to bowl. Can Cheers win without Woody? A further wager between Sam and Gary may spur an ace in the hole to participate in the competition after all. Written by Huggo

Quotes

Gary: [to the gang at Cheers about Gary's Old Towne Tavern beating them in a baseball game] You guys have nothing to hang your heads about. You played hard, you played clean, you gave it your all. Just remember, it takes two sides to make a victory: one side to win, and you guys.

From Beer to Eternity (#4.9)
14 May 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Cheers gang has a baseball game against another bar and they lose. The guy from that bar comes to make fun of them and Carla arranges a bowling competition. Turns out that Woody was a good bowling player but he doesn't want to compete as he injured somebody before. And then Diane comes and saves them by winning.

This was a pretty amusing episode. One of the few that take place outside of the bar for the most of the time. But the setting didn't change much in the great character dynamics.

The ending was unexpected, I was sure it will be Woody who will save them, but they managed to trick us and make it Diane instead.
