    Talking Bowled my 1st 300!

    After 26 years of bowling, I finally hit my first 300! Long time coming as I've been so close the last couple of years getting burned by a ring 10 or a nasty solid 8 or 9 pin somewhere along the way. Friday April 3rd, it finally happened. I still can't really believe it. I was using my Brunswick Swarm #16 that I got when I did the ProAm in Buffalo back in December 2008. I was debating spending the extra on the ball this season, but as a Christmas gift, my fiance gave me the money to get it. Glad we decided on that one! That ball has made a HUGE difference in my game. I've thrown some huge games with it, and now a 300. I would highly recommend the Swarm to anyone lookin' for a new ball for their arsenal.

    26 years you say... Okay, so now I know what I'm up against! hahahahaha. Congrats! Closest I've come is a 264, but I'm 25 years old, so I figure if it takes 26 years to pull off a 300, then I'm fine with that! hahahaha. Although, with my luck, it will be during a practice session and not league play.... D'oh!

    Congrats! Now you can die a happy man (be glad you're not a BoSox fan... For years and years, I thought I'd go to my death bed like my Grandfather did: tons of heart break, no World Series victories).
    Not helping the situation since 1983.

    Haha Thanks guys :-) Actually, a happy girl Art ;-) hahaha Yep, bowling since I was 4, I'm glad it was before my 30th B-Day in Nov. LOL
    Nope, Yankees fan all the way. Worked as a "batgirl" for the farm team that was the Yankees in my city (now the Tigers farm team). On another note, twice one week in March, I almost picked the Big Four too. Taken 3 out of the 4...Gettin closer on that too lol. Did snag the 2-8-10 a couple of weeks ago however. They started calling me "the split specialist" last season because I LOVE picking splits up. Although I hate leaving them LOL

    Congrats on the 300. Haven't had mine either just 278's and 279's. I won't go into how many years, but do we count the 17 years I didn't bowl?
