    Default Wifes 2nd week bowling

    Well prior to last week my wife had probably bowled maybe 30 games in her whole life. Since they opened our league to women she decided to bowl. She isn't a big fan of it but figured she'd give it a try. She is using an 8lb house ball for now. Ordered her a new 8lb Twist but it isn't in yet. Tried to get her into a 10 or 12 but she refused and she refused any help too. She said she is there for fun and whatever she bowls she bowls. So last week she had 87, 73, 86. She got a little better tonight. 123, 106, 77 so now her average is 92. Problem is max handicap is 85 so anything below about 136 hurts us but we are having fun.

    She should have her new ball next week so maybe that will help too.

    Years ago Wendy Macpherson gave me some really good advice for coaches: never coach anyone who you've ever seen naked. That includes your spouse, and YOURSELF! LOL

    lol. Good tip!

    Picked up her new ball today. Her average after 2 weeks was 92. Today she rolled 105, 119, and 105 with it.She will be bowling league with it again Tuesday. I pre-bowled today cause I won't be there Tuesday but I'll post that in another thread. But picked up my replacement for the cracked Glam and 1/2 way through the 2nd game my one insert landed 1/2 way down the lane...lol. But left a ton of 7's with it.
