AVERAGE?!? I /really/ find that hard to believe.

I used to watch that bowling show on ABC Saturday afternoons, and most
matches (it seemed to me) were something like 221-218. Pretty rare for 250+
I thought.

Maybe I'm way off. I'll try to Google something or other later...

BS (lefty, fingetip, big hook)

PBA membership requires an average of 190 or 200 depending upon the
league type. Champions are bowling 230 - 240 per game. The big
difference between my potential and them is that I never could learn how
to throw a hook. I was a straight arm bowler and there are very few of
those. Without the hook and spin, you are at the mercy of variabilities
in the lane wood. No way to compensate.

Funny thing about all this is that my son's b-day party this weekend is
bowling. Time to polish up the ball.
