Some professional bowlers have that “If you don't knock all the pins down on the first ball, please spare me the details” attitude. You may have this attitude after the first time you play or perhaps you accept that “gutter ball” will be your nickname forever. However, today’s Groupon gives you a chance to change your nickname for good: Pay R20 for one bowling game at Super Bowling.
So you don’t have a two-toned shirt with your name emblazoned across the pocket, a red bowling bag and you’re still hiring a different pair of four-tones bowling shoes every time you go bowling. That doesn’t necessarily mean you’re a bad bowler, it just means that you either are the captain of your own team or you just haven’t been asked to join a team yet.
OK, so you may be in denial, but here’s a chance to improve your game. Pull your ability out the gutter and bowl a few balls with some friends or family members. Become “Ben the Bender” or “Big Phil” or simply learn what all these names and terms mean.
Let a round shiny ball settle who washes the dishes for the next week or decide who’s taking grandma to her bingo game for the coming month – she’s a lucky broad and takes her game very seriously, almost as seriously as the professional players in the lane next to you. Either get a few tips from them, secretly play against them or just stay out of their way. Especially if one of the players in your group can’t bowl straight and prefers to bowl over his shoulder rather than along the ground.
factoid: Bowling originated in France. A simple
fruit vendor knocked into a fountain which caused his melons to knock and roll
into a pile of ten French loaves. A passer-by was instantly struck with the
idea for the game and so the game of “melon rolling” was invented, of course in
France it was called, “Mellon roulant.” The popularity of the game led to the great melon famine
