    This post brings back memories. The guy who taught me was a boyfriend of my mom back in the day. The guy was a jerk but a top notch bowler and excellent teacher. However, if he blew a pot then look out. Him missing a 10 pin causing him and his team to lose was a definite 100MPH white knuckle ride back home for me and my mom. I was about 10 yrs old at the time. One night he bowled with his brand new Black Hammer right when they first came out. In the last game he blew the 10th. He walked outside and slammed the ball on the ground causing it to bounce 20 feet in the air. He did it over and over all the way back to our car. Finally it landed on the hood of a car near ours. He grabbed the ball, threw it in the truck and we left. Somehow nobody seen him do it and it was back before cameras were everywhere so he got away with it. Serious damage too. The irony is, the very next week and many weeks after continued to use his road rashed Black Hammer and did well with it. I guess thats one way to scuff a Hammer but not the preferred method. I can go on in this thread with stories about this guy for days. All I can say is luckily I got his skill with bowling but I did not get his attitude.

    I bowled with this one team for years. Nice enough off the lanes, but a bunch of asses on it. There was one team that we always had a rivalry with, however it got to the point where some of the guys on our team starting cheering when they missed a spare, or had a bad shot. They got pissed when they started getting some of their own medicine. A couple of my teammates wanted to settle this in the parking lot. It stopped when I pointed out that they started this crap, so just shut up and bowl.

    I have seen people kick ball returns, punch ball returns, punch walls, yell in other peoples' faces, tug and pull on the computers, kick balls down the lane, throw balls halfway down the lane, purposely throw gutter balls, complain about opponents making spares, slamming balls into bags, onto the floor, bouncing them, or kicking them down the aisle.

    Out of all those things I've seen people do, not one time have I seen an official call a "Do over" because of their antics. So silly, I just shake my head.
