I dusted off the Peacock and went bowling with Kyle and his friends this week. The Peacock is my bowling ball. Yes I have my own ball custom made for my hand. One thing to know about me… If I am going to try any sport, I have to have my own gear… even if I’m not very good at it. I usually get one good game and the rest suck. Well, that held true for this outing and it happened to be my first game. I was steadily getting spares in the begining and that was fine with me. I never think I can strike anyway. I wasn’t paying attention to anyone elses scores because the guys he bowls with usually strike thru most of their frames. I got to the 10 frame and rolled a strike. Sweet, I get 2 more balls. Tossed one down the lane… strike again! WTF?! Could I really do this. Ball #3 – STRIKE!!!! TURKEY BABY!
I had never had a turkey before! This was my highest game I have ever bowled. Before this it was in the 160 range against my dad in high school. I beat him by 1 pin and it was a very proud day for me. The icing on this cake was that I kicked Kyle’s ass! We won’t talk about the scores of my other games. I will say they were all over 100, but nothing close to this again. I might have to retire now.
