Bowling for a Turkey

This past weekend, my brother and sister-in-law came up to hang out with my wife and me. Besides grubbing at P.F. Chang's and Rocky's, we happened to go bowling (which I hadn't done in a long time). I grew up bowling with my dad and brother, so it was quite nostalgic to strap on those rental shoes, grease up my hands, and pretend like I know what I am doing (I sometimes watch bowling on Sunday afternoons on ESPN, but it's not that exciting). Anyway, I had an opportunity to get a Turkey on my second game, and my brother happened to catch me in the act:

Check out the form baby!
Oh, and I do get a little excited sometimes.
After such a feel-good experience, I was pondering about the possibility of doing this more often. Maybe some of my SBTS blogging friends and classmates would want to challenge me on the lanes? Any takers?

Good lookin' follow through! I took bowling when I was at the University of New Mexico for PE credit - I used to average around 200, but it has been a while. Great fun! If I was there, you can guarentee we'd play!

Thanks for the comments man. I, too, took bowling for my PE class in college. Those were the days man. I also remember going to a youth lock-in with a couple of guys. That night less than 50 kids from the association showed up, meaning that I and the guys with me each got their own lane to bowl all night long. And bowl we did. I kept the score card which tallied all 34 games we played. Yes, I did say 34 games. I couldn't walk for the next three days. I think I had a bonding moment that night with the lanes.

I can't quite bowl 200, but I did happen to break 100 so I guess you could call me "average."

You're on. Drop me an email sometime or I'll drop by your belt and we can figure something out. My wife likes bowling too so we could do the double date thing!

Alright, Stephen. I will let my wife know. But rule number one is that you cannot use the 8 lb. ball, okay?
