Val and i have been doing a bit of bowling lately. we both have weird history with the game. i used to obsess over it as a wee lad, bowling up and down my hall way from morning until night with these neat plastic pins and a black plastic ball. I'd watch ABC Sports every weekend and catch Earl Anthony's show that started with that song that went "NA, NA, naNA NA NA", and i'd mimic the bowlers on TV. I guess Val took up bowling and lettered in it in high school, for the reason only so that she didn't have to endure normal gym class.
Anyway, i remember going last year sometime with most of y'all to that one place out past Voelkers, which had been the first time i'd bowled in a long long time. And i remember only getting a 77 (i remember also being drunk). But recently, i've bowled a lot more frequently. Once for 4 or 5 hours with Derek, Luke, Jake, and Fen out at Sunset, once at Airport for an Edge promotional thingy, and a few times now at Thurway late on Sundays. And i've already broken 160.
Anyway, the point of all of this is that if its not one childhood obsession its the next. Transformers, video games (fully justified), and now bowling, which was the biggest of all bigs. so much so, that after only four times in the past couple months, i now want this... BADLY!!
this is teh fcuking HOTT...
now if only i could put ANY kind of hook on my throws... apparently Thruway Lanes, starting in early May, is going to offer a clinic league, Thursdays at 6. only have to pay for the time you show up, so $8 for 2 hours of some learnin' and rollin'. the its off to buy some land and start enjoying the rest of my life the way i growed up... that, or attempt to start another band (puke).
