mkillian247 on twitter..... I say a lot of stuff you wont care about.
Yes, I love to bowl.
I always enjoyed bowling. Bowled in a league for quite a few years until about 10 years ago. We bowled Friday nights, and it was always a primer for the Iowa game on Saturday.
Simple answer: yes
Haven't bowled in year, but I do enjoy it.

Hey it's my Big Red headed step child...and he likes to bowl!
Used to be in a league growing up, haven't bowled in quite a while. Pretty good though, high game is a 280, probably carried around a 200 average
Holy . I carried an average like that, but it was blood alcohol content not a bowling average.
My old mans high is a 276, mine a 215
My dad has a couple 300 games and one or two 299 games, my older brother has a couple 300 games too.
So I am on the low end there, but in my defense, I don't bowl in leagues like they do
Gotdam. Do you do the spin thing? I like to bowl, but haven't been in a long time.
The thing that sucks about my 280 game is that I got a strike then a spear then struck out from there, then the next game I opened with like 5 strikes in a row, so I threw enough strikes in a row for it to be a 300, just not in the right game
Hook? Yeah, got to have a ball that fits your hand/fingers to be effective, and know how to properly throw it, and where to throw it and where to line up
Hell my average was around 155. I was the anchor of the team...meaning I was the one weighing everyone down. But I had a lot of fun. We bowled in a very fun league and it was full of lesbians! I loved partying with the lesbians, they were a hoot!
I have subbed a few times, but not in a long while, but I always have a blast, because I get hammered
I'm gonna start calling you Munson.
I only use two fingers(no pun intended) for my hook. And I'm a lefty

Quick story about going bowling with some people in Iowa City once, people that don't bowl regularly don't understand that using house shoes and a house ball makes a difference but it does. So I didn't have my bowling stuff up at school, and figured I wasn't going to do that well, my friend and a few girls we were going to bowl with did not believe me that I was a decent bowler, and when I told them I would probably suck that night since I didn't have my stuff, they just gave me crap and said I was pre-emptively making excuses for when I was going to suck.
I was just like, "yeah you're right." Anyways we go, and the first game I threw a 170 or so, smoked all of them, then the next one, I threw a 265. It was nice getting to rub that in their face the rest of the night.
Yeah that works, but I do know that when you learn to throw it properly, you have a lot more control over it. But there have been guys my dad knows that throw like that and bowl awesome
Ya I've been doing it since 13 so it's under control
A good buddy of mine bowled a 299 once. I don't even know what my highest is, probably barely over 200. I suck.
Bowling is a great drinking activity. Always have a good time.
For me bowling has always been like golf...it's something to do while I drink.
Agree but I would love to get serious about golf. Too expensive though.
