I just want to take a very unscientific poll about Bowling due mostly to me and my buddies constant best of 5 series till 3 in the morning team bowling over the holidays.

1) Do you consider bowling fun?



2) How often do you bowl?



3) Is bowling popular with your friends?



4) If you do play do you prefer individual or team format.



5) Are you a straight aim or curve bowler?



6) Do you prefer tight or wide finger holes for your ball?



7) what is your highest and average score?



Here are my answers to my own poll:



1) yes

2) once or twice a weekend

3) yes

4) team

5) straight aim

6) wide

7) highest 149 average 110

1) Do you consider bowling fun?
Yes.

2) How often do you bowl?
I don't any longer, but I used to bowl every week as part of leagues.

3) Is bowling popular with your friends?
No.

4) If you do play do you prefer individual or team format.
I preferred the individual format, but that wasn't too conductive to leagues.

5) Are you a straight aim or curve bowler?
Started as straight aim and gradually converted to a semi-curve. I used both types of shots. Some spares require curves, some require straight shots.

6) Do you prefer tight or wide finger holes for your ball?
Tight.

7) what is your highest and average score?
My highest score was a 218. When I stopped playing, my average was hovering around 155-165.

1) Yes! 2) Once or twice a year, usually. 3) Well...."popular" would imply we do it more, but we like it. ;-) 4) I prefer team, but we play individual...usually we don't have enough people to do otherwise 5) Straight, but I *do* try to put English on the ball - sometimes it even works! 6) I usually get tight, and then my hand hurts a lot the next day. I always try to get the CRAZY COLOUR one, too (of course) 7) I have NO idea. Probably in the 180s for highest, and 130s for average. I've gotten to the point where I'm down to zero or one gutter balls a game I HAVE MADE A 7-10 SPLIT!! Aaron and Lise are my witnesses!

Yeah, its nice when we can

Individual, everyone for themselves

On a sidenote, I went bowling on New Year's Eve. I got so happy when I got a turkey, that I dropped down, stared at my hand and did a spinarooni. Some stared, some laughed, but all saw the mighty power of the Bookerman.

1) Do you consider bowling fun?
Yeah, but what's truly awesome is GLOW BOWL when they have the day glo thing going on. Also, beer bottles shaped liked pins.

2) How often do you bowl?
Not as much as when I was in school. It was a good weekday way to waste time. I think maybe once every other month now.

3) Is bowling popular with your friends?
Yeah, we just got together over Christmas.

4) If you do play do you prefer individual or team format.
Individual.

5) Are you a straight aim or curve bowler?
Straight. That curving shit really makes my wrist hurt after a couple of games. Also, my curve is hardly what I'd call consistent.

6) Do you prefer tight or wide finger holes for your ball?
Whatever. If I can't fit my fingers in the holes, that's bad.

7) what is your highest and average score?
Ah ah I bowled a 260 ONCE and I've never scored anywhere near that ever again. I think my average is around 140 or so.

Everybody everybody get your bowl on

Wide I guess - that seems to be how the alley balls are drilled

DR: It says, "Dean is a numbskull." Hint to young GuruZim: "Dean is a moron who needs to edit his posts."

MY REAL ANSWERS~!, DADDY!:

1) Do you consider bowling fun?
DR: Oh yeah. Fun fun Fun! I LOVE IT!

2) How often do you bowl?
DR: All my friends bowl on Friday night, the night I watch the younguns so I'm in bowling hell.

3) Is bowling popular with your friends?
DR: My friends bowl every week. It's the same crew that plays softball in the spring and summer everyweek.

4) If you do play do you prefer individual or team format.
Individual, everyone for themselves
DR: Whichever gets beer in the beerhole the fastest.


5) Are you a straight aim or curve bowler?
DR: It's hard enough standing up straight after three pitchers of Miller and wearing those shoes. I'm all about the ball going straight through the arrows I've strategically picked in my mind.

6) Do you prefer tight or wide finger holes for your ball?
DR: I like my bowling balls like I like my women: Easily available and not too heavy to lift. I CAN'T WORRY MY FINGER ACCESS! Wait...

7) what is your highest and average score?

1) Do you consider bowling fun?
Yep. What better way to go out for a few drinks, get some exercise, and let out some aggression than to roll a hard ball as fast as I can against poor, defenseless pins?

2) How often do you bowl?
Not as often as I might like. Anywhere from once every three months to once a year. I think the last time I went bowling was September 2000. I'm due soon, I think.

3) Is bowling popular with your friends?
It is with the ones that matter.

4) If you do play do you prefer individual or team format?
Individual. It provides more opportunities for fun trash-talking, and you have no problems with one rookie bowler dragging down a team, which makes the rookie feel bad and the other team members angry.

5) Are you a straight aim or curve bowler?
Would love to be a straight aim bowler. But I've got a nice curve to the right; I'm not sure where it came from.

Oh yeah, I also seem to have a hook to the left in my bowling, so I'm a curve bowler to compensate for it.


6) Do you prefer tight or wide finger holes for your ball?
Even my semi-tiny fingers like room - and I don't need to fuck up my wrist/hand/arm with tight holes.

7) what is your highest and average score?
Highest score? I don't remember, it's probably been at least 10 years since I actually played that game, but maybe a 180-something.

Average score? Probably between a 105-115, the last few times I've bowled.

I think practically all of us have read this question wrong - I think he's referring to "tight" holes as "close" as opposed to "tight." Not that it matters, I suppose. ;-)

1) Do you consider bowling fun?
-YES

2) How often do you bowl?
-not as much as I used to, 5 or 6 times a year

3) Is bowling popular with your friends?
-yes

4) Individual or team?
-Individual, for more drunken shit talkin fun!

5) Straight aim or curve?
-Straight aim, although I've been known to throw a knuckleball or two.

-Well, wide...finger and hole wise. The bowling alley I go to clocks the speed so I go for a heavy ball and usually wind up in Randy Johnson mode, trying to out throw the gun.

7) What is your highest and average score?
-I think I've cracked 200, but my average drops with the exceive amount of Long Island Ice Teas (which I'm now banned from drinking, but that's what beer is for) I drink, . Ave 140...ah hell probably more like 130.

I gotta go bowling more often
