Another bowling thread.

Well, I picked up a new "Big Time" yesterday and practiced the 3 free games they give ya when buyin a new ball. I havent bowled in about 3 years or so. After that kind of lay off time I shot , 198, 268,268. It's a good ball that's pretty aggressive and surprisingly forgiving with a tug here and swing there. I was playing 14 to 5 about 40 feet out and crushing the pocket. I went with a 15.4 lb instead of a 16. With the way the new stuff hits there is no reason to throw the heavy stuff anymore. Plus I'm now and getting lazy in my old age. lol.

I'm gonna go to AMF Garland in the morning for the rent-a-lane from 11am-1pm. 2 hours for 18 bucks isnt bad at all.

Hehe, Funfest is for "no bowlers" meaning people who don't bowl on a regular basis. Regular bowlers stay away from those places like the plague. Usually really messy, full of people who know nothing of lane courtsey and lane conditions are a joke.

Ya, I've been there to answer your question, but not to competitvely bowl.

Ha! It's ok bro, my Dad has been pro for over 30 years and I obviously grew up with it. There is pictures of me as a baby in my diapers on the lane sitting on the approach with my Dad helpin me push the ball down the lane.
