    Man, bowling is a sweet game. I used to really suck, and now I only kind of suck. There's a place here on campus where I can go bowling for cheap rates. So, I've been going more often now. My personal best so far is 147. Not great, but decent for someone who throws a straight ball (working on the hook). So, if anyone goes bowling or is in a league...what do you shoot? And no exaggerations. /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif

    I like bowling...not that good though, I rolled a 180 once, but usually something like 100-120

    Woo-hoo! That's my game. I've had a 200+ average for the last 5 years. Right now I'm waiting to hear from the Air Force selection people to see if I can go to the tryouts for the Air Force bowling team. Got about 3 weeks to wait for the results

    I only will bowl if I know ahead of time to bring my shoes and ball. I won't go if I have to rent shoes... those suckers are so freaking nasty. Using the lender ball is gross too. The guy next to us last time was digging out a fat booger and then same finger went into the bowling ball! Like I wanna be the next one to use that thing! /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

    I went bowling about a week ago with some friends, we spent the whole time doing "Big Lebowski" impressions and making quotes from the movie.

    I boll right around 100.
    I blame it on the rental shoes. I wear a size 13, but the rental shoes are always too tight and they hurt.
    I don't want to buy bowling shoes because then my one exscuse for sucking would be gone.
