Paging Mr Strike

December 13, 2007

Over the past few weeks I have developed a bit of an infatuation with bowling. It started a couple of weeks ago. Since then I have been 4 times and my average scores have gone from 70 to about 120. Me and a friend also got shirts and made a logo and ironed our logo and names on. Our bowling name is ‘The Gutterballs’. We are actually thinking about going pairs bowling, but not quite yet. Also, the place we go is new. It has 38 lanes, a pub, heaps of pool tables and a ‘deal or no deal’ game. I played ‘Deal or No Deal’ twice last night. First time I got the 200. The second time I did ‘Double Deal’ and won the big 400. Anyway back to the bowling. Yesterday in 3 games I scored 115, 118 and 90. The third game was terrible, probably due to exhaustion. Yes I am that unfit, and bowling balls are quite heavy. The funniest part of last night was that we were next to a group of uni students, six in all, three guys and their gf’s. The guys were all pretty good, making the ball spin and all. The girls weren’t too bad either, except one of them. She bowled the ball as if to get backspin, but threw it in the air and it made such a loud sound when it hit the floor. I had to be relatively discreet about this. The whole car trip back home we were discussing which of the unlucky guys has her as a girlfriend when it comes to bowling.

  4. I can’t believe you made shirts.
    And I still live with the shame. Although at least I had the highest score across those games.

  5. i think when you say: “about 120”, you actually mean: “nearly 120”. cos you’re not quite there yet bud.
    and was that using your, um, ‘unorthodox’ (though surprisingly effective) technique?
