    I've never seen anyone convert a 7-10 split...not even pros.

    Anyway, I have been bowling more and more lately. I enjoy the hell out of it! There is a bowling alley near me that, if you go at the right time, they'll put on musical "requests", so of course, I always ask for a bit of the heavy stuff...:)

    On a side note - broke 200 for the first fucking time ever about two weeks ago. I'm typically pretty damn average, but I was ON that day. Probably never happen again...:p

    If you made the 7-10 split on Strikes and Spares for Cash at the end of the show I think you won like $25000 or something.

    I think if anyone converted the 7-10 split they'd get a bunch of $$$ XD

    But yeah it very rarely happens, and its only happened on TV once or twice I think.

    And good job! I haven't gotten nearly that high since I've been going through different styles and trying different balls, but I've been practicing so I think I'll be getting up there sometime soon, I hope so at least!

    That two-handed Belmonte style is really cool stuff.

    I watch Bowling on television whenever I'm able to catch it. People usually make fun of me for it, but I don't care. I've always loved going bowling but I'm not very good at it, and I have little patience for my lack of sports ability. I'll stick with playing guitar (not that I'm that much better at that either lol).

    I used to watch candlepin bowling on Saturday afternoons when I was a kid and could never figure out why.

    Ok, so all us bowling dorks have come out of the closet in this thread......

    Anyone willing to admit their love for professional wrestling?
    My entire youth during the 80s was spent watching AWA, WCCW, NWA, UWF, WWF, Bob Luce Wresting, wrestling both live and on TV.

    I truly despise what McMahon has done to wrestling today, but the glory days of it defined my youth (along with metal of course)

    Never liked it :erk:

    I do, however, enjoy Ultimate Frisbee. Anyone else?

    Too much bowling talk. Porcupine Tree on Friday. Last time I went to a PT show I was the youngest person there by like 15 years (I think I was 28). We'll see if it's any different this time.

    I'm there too. But my 'golden era' was '98-99. I'm big on wrestling history as well, mostly through books.

    I'll proudly admit I'm a pro wrestling fan. Have been since I was 9, and I'm almost 34 now. I've tried to get away from it several times, but it just keeps sucking me back in lol. I've given up watching the WWE (except for oldschool DVD sets like Survivor Series, Summerslam, etc), and now I tend to lean towards TNA, ROH, PWG, and Japanese wrestling. That's some good stuff.

    I gave up on McMahon once Bastion Booger was gone.

    Bowling, for whatever reason, really brings out my ADD. Last time, I got severely distracted midthrow and tossed myself further down the lane than the ball.

    Have fun at the gig. Not really my cup of tea.
    If I wanted to get a nap, I would go see Opeth live again.

    I will get my napping at a show fix this summer when Dream Theater opens for Maiden.. :) (I say that as a DT fan BTW, just not a good live band. Hopefully they will bring it)
