Since I'm planning on having an MC for a while, I might as well get to know some people on here. I have a wide range of hobbies. Most of them include extreme sports, but, my main sport is actually bowling. I was always the odd ball, being that I did baseball, motocross (mx and bmx), and bowling. Anyone else here bowl competitively??



(Like most forums, I expect some smack talk about this sport, lol)

Well I sure wont give you an crap about bowling. I certainly don't bowl competitively but I currently sub on the most competitive league in my local house and will be a permanent member on a team next year. Only been bowling more serious for two years. Bowled a little bit in college but on a drinking league. But ever since i had my third knee surgery this is the only way I can still compete in something!

I don't bowl, but every time I see a pyramid on our ski lake with "Tex" as one of the pins, I think of how we could create a bowling ball for the lake.

:D :D :D :D

I liked full-contact bowling. You really have to get the jump on the opponents, but it's worth it.:D

Funny story about bowling and me. The wife asked me in August if I would like to bowl with this couple we are friends with. I am not a bowler but said OK anyways. We show up to bowl and I find out we are signing up for a league. I am a little annoyed buy what the heck it is only for a couple of months every other Saturday, right? Wrong!! This league has a longer season than baseball. I travel alot internationally so I never sign up for commitments like this. You know what, I was pissed for a while but I am really starting to enjoy it now. I suck at it but it is something different that gets us out of the house. The best part for me is seeing the mph of my ball. I don't remember my highest bowling score but I do remember my top speed = 22.1mph.

22.1-You need to learn overhand!

lol, nice. It's best to use a 6 pounder for speed, but none of them fit adult-sized hands. I see you're from around here... What bowling center do you go to, if you don't mind me asking?

Small world. It is kind of nice because it is close to our lake place. I don't know the exact name of the place but it is in Centuria, WI on highway 35. About 15 minutes from ST Croix FALLS, WI.
