View Full Version : Ten Pin Bowling!

Who here enjoys rolling heavy, over-sized marbles at some bits of wood?! Even if it does follow that tired sports formula of one person/team versus another person/team and use of a ball. I haven't done it for a while but always enjoy it even though I perform terribly.

How do you fare when playing? What is your highest score?

You're right it's a bit formulaic for me Bubba I'm just waiting it out for an original sport.

Ahem. Oh, I really like bowling. I always have the barriers up though, because there's nothing more soul crushing than whiffing and getting zero. To be honest though, I'm very average. I can do a decent first bowl, but picking off spares? Bleh. Don't have the aim for it.

I am genuinely the worst person ever at it.

I'm totally terrible, and I have a weird-butt way of bowling. Instead of under arm, i like roll it but with the back of my hand facing out instead of my palm. I do enjoy it, nonetheless :D

Bowling is alright if you get a decent crowd out but the amount of money spent for what can ultimately take 15 minutes between 2 people is why Matt and I don't go often.

But I'm okay at best in terms of playing the game. Too many gutter balls at all times for my liking though.

I'm so good they call me Dr X.

One thing I will not do, is play with the sides up. If the general consensus is to play with the sides up, I will sit and watch or go to a nearby Arcade or something until it's over. Nothing more boring than aimlessly throwing a ball down a lane. I mean, why even pay? At least with the sides down there's an element of skill and balance. Makes it more fun anyway, and if you suck just have a laugh with it.
