I have been bowling on Friday nights with 3 buddies for the last three years. We go off and on, but probably once a month. I normally come in the bottom half and I don't think I've won in a year or so.

Our first game I had a 121, and the winner had a 154 and the other two tied for 153. Tight game.

Second game, I bowled a 167, a new personal record. We had a 163, 152, and a 120.

Not too bad...

I've bowled in leagues since I was 12. I've had 9 300's and back in 05 I shot 300,300 215 for the 815 series. Had 28 strikes in a row. My higest average for a year was in 07 when I finished the season with a 222 average...

My brother has a bowling alley. His kids were pretty good. His oldest son took bowling in college for a PE credit and bowled a 300 while in the class so he got an A+.

I used to bowl on leagues before kids, now maybe once every couple of years. Never was very good.

Use to bowl in two leagues, held a 194 average best score was 290.......spared in the first frame and struck the rest of the way out. Ended up with a 740 series that night. Kind of miss bowling.

I have a buddy like that. Doesn't matter what he does ( old man softball, bowling, ping pong, golf, etc...) he's frigging good. Dumb ass never even played a sport in high school, but should have.
I never played on high school teams. The basketball coach used to call my dad every year and try to get my dad to let me play. Dad always wanted me working. I'm 6' and could take one step and dunk two handed. Had a 37 inch vertical. Back in 91 I got a pair of strength shoes and would jog every night for 2-5 miles with them things on. I don't know if any of you guys have ever seen them or if they even make them anymore but man would them things kill your legs. But basketball is still my favorite sport. I play every wednesday night at a local gym with about 15 guys. When I tell them I never played they think I'm joking...

What was it a 7 or 10 pin??? I bowl with a guy that has bowled 51 300''s and around 30 800's. Guy bowls 5 nights a week and has no job. Carries around a 230 average every year...

BS, if he bowled 51's 300 games he would be on the tour, totally BS!!! Just Sayin if he was that good we would be seeing him on TV.
