    The closest I ever got to a 300 was starting with 8 straight Xs. That's nerve wracking as all hell.

    Once saw a guy, and this was bittersweet, hit a 299 (sparing on his 11th ball). It was epic. We were in a league that we so appropriately named ourselves the BS league and he was easily the best bowler. No problem with that it's just that he knew he was and he made sure eveyone knew it.

    There were more smiles on people's faces than there were "Oh, I'm sorry, man, good game!"

    The league I bowl in there is a 300 game probably every other week, lots of good bowlers.

    A little over a year ago I went bowling with 2 of my friends and we got on a lane and I look at the lane next to me and see a different friends dad on the lane next to us so since I knew him very well I was talking to him while we were bowling and he starts a new game and starts getting strikes and so me and my friends are watching him bowl and he suddenly after a while has a perfect game going into the 10th frame and he gets a strike so he was 2 strikes away from a 300 and his next roll he rolled perfectly but only ended up with a 9 so he didn't get his perfect game which sucked but it was cool to watch a close to perfect game.

    I go to a thing called Redpin occasionally where you bowl to win money. A strike with a colored headpin is 3/4/5(depends on color). There are other combos(colored 7/10 pins) in which if you stike you win 10$ and so on.

    You can also buy raffle tickets and if your name gets called and you strike you win 10$. Then you have sureshot when everyone is done which is another raffle. Depends on how many people are there but usually if you get called and strike you win 25+. The cover charge is 20 and usually I buy 10$ on raffle rickets and 5$ in sureshot tickets. Out of that 35 my best is walking home with 70 so thats 45 in profit. A good way to kill a night

    So bowled Saturday night 1st week and was a little rusty. I bowled a 179, 178, 211. I only threw 6 games over the summer. I was covering my spares, I was just erractic in the pocket couldnt stay consistent. Would hit head pin high one frame then light the next frame. As the night went on though I regrouped and ended up bowling average the last game. We won 2 out of 3 and series so all is good.

    ^Pretty good scores.

    I bowled yesterday. Bowled 4 games. My scores in order were: 144, 172, 151, 157. Pretty solid day for me since my average is around 140-150 usually.

    So my bowling league that I had been in for 4 years started yesterday and due to money constraints I am unable to participate in it (was actually in 2 last year).

    Yeah, I asked about leagues out here the other day. Very expensive. Don't think I can afford it right now. So sad.

    I've been bowling on two or three years since I was 12 years old. My last league we finished in third place, and I averaged a 193. Growing up, my team would dominate the leagues we were in against other kids, but when we got to the adult leagues we couldn't win anything. Third place was our best finish in 4 years.

    What college do you go to? A 220.1 average in college tournaments would make you one of the top college bowlers in the country if you guys bowl the good tournaments....

    Bowled a 610 in my sport league on Monday. Not too bad. I was a little inconsistent my first game but finished 218 (open in 10th ) and 220. The shot is soooooo long at 45ft, but my team figured it out.
