    THE BOWLING SURVEY:

    The rules, copy and paste this to your notes, change the answers to reflect yours, tag a bunch of other people that bowl, and have fun...you get to find out more about your bowling friends!

    How old were you when you started bowling?: 6

    Righty or lefty? Righty

    What's your average?: 237 last league I was on 10yrs ago. Probably much less now but I'll let you know next fall

    Do you own your own ball?: I've had upwards of 45. I know this because I built my own rack like bowling alleys had to hold them all. Wife made me LOL Sadly, I only have to left (long story)

    Who's your favorite professional bowler of all time? Bob Hanley only because he's a super nice guy, a freak of nature on the lanes and I got to bowl with him when I was 14. I shot 210, 217 and 235. He bowled 211, 218 and 236 LMAO My mom recorded it with a camcorder and my son just watched it the other day.

    Do you bowl in a league? Which one(s)? Not currently and back in the day, every league I could bowl on. Friday night men's was always the best for $

    What's your favorite bowling alley? Sante Fe Casino had one and it was free to bowl 2-5 am weekdays when I lived there. My local favorite when years ago was Tinley Park Lanes in IL.

    How about your LEAST favorite?: Oak Forest Lanes, New owners ruined it

    Do you like bowling with the "cosmic" lights? I'll do it but because I can still bowl but I despise that's what bowling alleys have to do to draw in bowlers. Regular lighting any day over that

    How about with music playing?: Major dislike. Used to make the manager tell the dudes jamming Bon Jovi on their boom boxes on my kids league to turn that crap off. I still like Bon Jovi and I still have the long hair to prove it but not while I'm trying to bowl man!

    Do you like to order food from the snack bar while you bowl? No, I don't want grease on my hands in case I forget to pick it up with my left hand

    Have you ever made the 7-10 split? Yes, 8 times

    Have you ever bowled a 300 game?: 37 in official play

    If not, have you seen someone else do it?: Yes, several time

    Have you ever won a tournament?: Yes but with all of the ones I won the best had to be the family two-some tournament with mom

    Do you watch bowling on TV?: Sadly not in years and I don't have cable. However, I did watch some 80's & 90's that were on Youtube with my son recently.

    Have you ever bowled on TV?: Yes, 2 times. Once in New York and once in Niagra Falls. New York my new "Steve Cook Vise Grips" flew out of my ball in the second frame right on TV. Just bought a new ball at the pro shop before TV and the guy glued them with Crazy Glue instead of a silicone based glue. SUPER EMBARRASSING! Even heard the announcers talking about it behind me. "Something flew out of his ball Bill" Augh so humiliating.

    When you go bowling on a date, who usually wins?: Me because the lane always tilts to one side when wifey bowls for some reason so she always misses the pocket.

    What's the highest game you've ever bowled?: 300

    The lowest?: Um...I was 6 so lemme guess....3? However I did bowl a 183 that first years. I still have the scoresheet

    Can you hook the ball?: Yes and throw it like a banana if I really feel the need to

    Do you use a ball with a fingertip grip?: Yes, if I tried a conventional I'd probably break my fingers

    Ever left without paying?: No but I did sneak warm up shots in before practice although you weren't supposed to but they didn't care. I had friends that never wrote half of their games down but they got stuck paying what the meter said.

    Ever walk out while still wearing the bowling shoes?: DOH! Yes, a brand new pair of Linds right in the slush. Not the bowling alleys. I was so mad

    Do you think it's easy to make the 10-pin (7-pin if you're lefthanded)?: Yes, with a spare ball

    THE BOWLING SURVEY:

    How old were you when you started bowling?: 10

    Righty or lefty? Lefty

    What's your average?: 193 last league I was on 15yrs ago. After first 2 weeks back at it I am sitting at 178

    Do you own your own ball?: Threw all of my equipment away in 2002 after an elbow injury forced me out. Just picked up a used Storm Sync ball from a fellow bowler the other night

    Who's your favorite professional bowler of all time? Mark Roth because he came down to my home lanes and ran it for awhile so got to know him a little and he was always trying to help others with their game.

    Do you bowl in a league? Which one(s)? Just started back up 2 weeks ago at my local bowling alley. Tuesday night mens league

    What's your favorite bowling alley? Sims Lanes in Beaver Falls, PA

    How about your LEAST favorite?: Park Lanes in Ellwood City PA. Lanes were crappy but it closed down about 10 years ago

    Do you like bowling with the "cosmic" lights? I did it once only because the wife wanted to go with friends of ours. Definitely like regular bowling better but if thats what it takes to get the wife out there then I am all for it.

    How about with music playing?: When I bowl I am either trying to concentrate or trying to talk with friends or teammates. Don't need loud music to make the evening more difficult

    Do you like to order food from the snack bar while you bowl? No, I don't want grease on my hands. I make it a point to eat before or after bowling

    Have you ever made the 7-10 split? Can't remember so probably not but thinking I did it once when I was about 14 or 15. If I did it was pure luck.

    Have you ever bowled a 300 game?: Not yet. High game is 266 but had a 244 last week after only 2 weeks in

    If not, have you seen someone else do it?: Yes, several times, including right beside me the other night.

    Have you ever won a tournament?: Several including regular team tournaments and a father/son tournament. That was was my favorite by far.

    Do you watch bowling on TV?: Rarely but may start since I am just getting back into it. Back when I bowled before we didn't have Google and youtube or forums like these so when I left the bowling alley I didn't think about it again until the following week. Now I am on here or youtube or doing a Google search for something bowling related every day.

    Have you ever bowled on TV?: No

    When you go bowling on a date, who usually wins?: Between me and my wife I win but if we go with friends it is usually me or my best friend that win. We are really competitive and always trying to beat each other in a fun way

    What's the highest game you've ever bowled?: 266

    The lowest?: Not sure but just the other night I bowled a 244 in my first game then started the second game with a gutter and ended with a 124 so that would probably be considered a worse game than a 10 year old bowling a 43

    What is the highest three game set you ever bowled?: About 670 but can't remember

    Ever had a birthday party at a bowling alley?: Been to several for kids

    Which of your Facebook friends have you went bowling with?: Not on facebook

    Lastly, wanna go bowling right now?: Sure!
