Bowling's fun, although i'm kinda inconsistent. My highest score is like a 160ish. :/

I'm not very good as long as I'm over 120 I'm happy unless I'm playing my brother then its on and I have to win.

He drinks and I don't so by the 3rd game I'm pretty much a lock to win.

I've been bowling a few times this past month. I suck.. my high is 154 which was a pretty good game for me. I don't know how to curve the ball or anything special like that.

I don't throw curve balls either, i just aim right down the pipe and i usually throw it at around 22mph.. it does the trick.

Anyone who says they don't like bowling is lying.

My best score is around 210. My grandmother was a very avid bowler and turned my brother and I on to it. Of course as I have grown older I have added beer to the whole bowling equation and have never come near 150 since.

I like bowling a lot, although I don't do it much. My average score is around 150, I got a 200 once but it was a complete fluke.

I love bowling but, have never been that good. Despite being in bowling club on high school. lol. I've never cracked 200. 180's a couple of times but, average was more in the 150's. I just roll it straight down, I cant curve it for crap.

I was in attendance when my buddy got a 300 game and all he does is roll it straight as well. I was baffled.

Another fun bowling story...this one time I just went bowling with a buddy of mine and this guy walks in with a bunch of people. They all looked hammered already, but were still pounding them down. So this guy stumbles around and puts his name in, "Big Ern" from Kingpin fame. This guy is wobbling around and when he goes up there he throws the hardest curving ball I've ever seen and gets a strike. And then he does it again and again and again all while, being surrounded by the 10 or so additional now empty beer bottles of his. haha. The guy strikes out up until the final frame before finally knocking down 6 or so. Still it was an amazing sight. This totally **** faced guy nearly getting a 300 game like that. Finished with a 286 or something like that. It was one of the craziest things I've ever seen and then he just left...practically being carried by his friends. lol. So freaking weird.

I was good for one summer when I was able to bowl for free after 9 PM. Went like 3 times a week and got my average up to like 170. I probably couldn't break 100 if I tried now

Hooking the ball is super easy... actually it's the only way I know how to play if you can't get the arm strength to rocket a ball down the lane...

Typical First toss is 12 boards left, around 2/3ds of the way down, five boards from the right gutter it catches...

When it hits, it's magical. When it misses. it sucks.

I like to think so...that would just be the icing on the cake.

I haven't been bowling in so long. I used to be in leagues and stuff during the summer when little league baseball was over and pop warner football hadn't started yet but that was years ago. I know a group of people who polish off a bottle of Southern Comfort and then go bowling. They say its a great time but I've never done it and really don't plan to.

Me and my friends went a lot over the summer. I can curve it, I just can't control where the curve goes so I usually only wind up getting a few strikes doing that. Either way, I'm not that great. I think my highest score ever was a 178.
