Bowling is the greatest activity/sport a person can participate in. Here are some reasons why:
You can eat chicken wings and drink beer while bowling. That are not too many sports where it is acceptable to eat wings and drink beer while playing. You will never see a basketball player chowing down on a chicken wing before shooting a free throw. Some games like softball you can get a way with drinking beer, but it is hard to prepare and eat chicken wings while doing it. Don’t get me wrong, you can make it happen, it just may not turn out how you would expect.
Bowling has the best lingo. In some sports if you casually mention to another player that they have nice balls, you may raise a few eyebrows, but in bowling it is a perfectly reasonable thing to say. You get to say some pretty cool stuff when you are bowling, phrases like: “Watch out for that dead wood”, “Chop Suey!”, “Over the line! Mark it zero!”, and of course “How is the back end tonight?”
Bowlers don’t have to be in shape. You do not need to be in peak physical condition to be a good bowler. Some may argue that the larger your beer belly, the better you are at bowling. Really the only training you need for bowling is beer curls.
Bowling is a good stress reliever. There is nothing more satisfying that hurling a 16 pound sphere down a wood alley at stationary objects. It is arguably the best feeling in the world to see the pins flying around after an exploding strike. It’s comparable to the beauty of childbirth, making love to a beautiful woman, or watching a great white shark leap into the air (it’s shark week folks). Bowlers are the most laid back people you will meet because they have no stress. I bowl so I don’t kill people…
Bowling so easy a caveman can do it. Bowling is an activity that anyone can participate in. Sure, you may not be any good, but you will only get better with practice. Come on down to 11th Frame Lanes order a beer and get your bowl on!
