"Things You Hate To Happen To You" #6

I love it when some­thing stu­pid I do or have done ends up on one of these posts. Just sayin’. Haha, either way, its another edi­tion of “Things You Hate To Hap­pen To You!”

#6 — The Bowl­ing Alley

I like bowl­ing. I think it is a lot of fun, even if I stink at it (don’t tell that to my col­lege pro­fes­sor from whom I took Bowl­ing 130 back in the day). But here is the fact of the mat­ter. No mat­ter how many times I look good when it comes to my bowl­ing tech­nique, I am either going to hor­ri­bly launch the ball into the other lane or totally fall flat on my face thanks to the oily surface.

I was totally going to make a video for all of you about my real-life expe­ri­ences with it, but this video that I found was in much more detail and a lot less painful for yours truly:

Haha, at least I am not on the Pro Tour like this guy is.

Any­ways, think about it this way. I grew up in Canada, and in Canada bowl­ing is a lot dif­fer­ent. Instead of 10-pins and bowl­ing balls with finger-holes in them, Cana­di­ans play with 5-pins and bowl­ing balls the size of your hand. It looks some­thing like this:

Am I blam­ing my hor­ri­ble bowl­ing skills on 5-Pin bowl­ing? Maybe a lit­tle bit, but either way, I should be able to let go of the ball at the right time and not look like an idiot at the same time, right? But I will tell you, it’s pretty cool to be able to launch those 4-pound palm sized bowl­ing balls down the lane at 90 MPH. It makes you feel sort of more manly… haha.

But regard­less, I am sure that some­thing like that which was shown in the first video has hap­pened to every­one at some point in time. It’s just another one of those things that you can’t always con­trol, but it always hap­pens to you!
