Bowling is great!

Unlike other sports, you don't have to be an athlete or be any good to have fun, although being good makes it even more fun.

It's a great way to spend time with friends, too.

Im not great at bowling, but its a blast anyway. I like midnight bowling. I went to a place where they lock the doors at midnight, you bowl for 5 hours and they serve pizza and soda all night and play music. It was awesome.

How about lawn bowling? a cousin of bowling, really. I just learned it this year. If you're familiar with bocce ball, well it's just a more complicated version of it with more rules. There's a small white ball on one end of the court (called the jack) and you "bowl" your ball (called bowls) down the lane trying to get it close to the jack. It's done outside on a lawn (thus lawn bowling) It's a cool combo of a bunch of games and even more fun than bowling! It's also more difficult because the balls (bowls) have a bias...that is, they curve a certain way. Also, the bowls aren't round...the sides are flattened slightly. its such a cool game!!

wow! i've never really heard of this 'lawn bowling'.. i wanna play it! it sounds so interesting.... haha..

well.. cosmic bowling is pretty much bowling at night in the dark at a bowling place, but instead of regular lights lighting up the place... you have neon lights and it rotates and stuff... it's kinda cool b/c the balls and the pins are lighted up w/ different colors too! I like it.. smile.gif i like the colors! Haha..

I really really really love bowling. I'm not really good at it though. My highest score was like 150, but i usually average about 100. Last summer my cousins and i would go bowling, and we would end up playing at least 10 games. It was so fun.

Bowling isn't my favorite thing to do. (Actually, it's one of the worst things for me to do). I still need bumpers! Even then, I really stink at it! I may have gotton, oh, four strikes in my life! Sounds pretty pathetic huh? < <

I love bowling! I was in a league two years ago, and I'm going to sign up again this year, if I can find a few friends to be on a team with. My high game(10 pin) is 147 but my average is usually round 102.

I love to go bowling, especially with my friends. I'm horrible at the sport, but it's still loads of fun if you don't go sliding down the lane like I often do on accident.

League bowling is reason for continued living. Though, err, my high score is only a 149. *hides head in shame*

I love bowling but I'm not the best at it. I'm usually happy if I break 60, however the last time I went I must have been doing something right cause I got a 95 my first game and then a 103 my second! The guy next to me almost bowled a perfect game! He got 9 strikes in a row but on his last ball he missed 1 pin!

Ooh I really love bowling! With friends it's really fun! Heheh, but I'm nothing without bumpers, I'd be getting it in the gutter otherwise (unless struck with luck)! It's fun to watch each your friends and yourself (well your friends watching you) make these different poses right before you let go of the ball. I think we tried to imitate this boy who slid on his stomach on the floor and then let his ball go. Haha it was really cute and all too funny at the same time.

Does anyone do little rituals to give them luck? Hahah in order to get a lot of pins? I used to do a little dance, haha made me look like a fool but it kinda worked...sorta..kinda.. biggrin.gif
