Bowling is fun if you don't mind getting a lot of gutter balls.

I'm not a very good bowler. Once in awhile I bowl a strike or I get a spare. More often I'm visiting my old friend Mr. Gutter. It's not a lot of fun to see the big 0 on your score. Anyway, I think by the time I hit 100 years old I will bowl a 100 game. It would be fitting. Whatever you do, spare me the sympathy and strike up the band. For now, I'm going to split.

there are bowling lanes where they block the gutters on both sides so that the ball bounces back to the lane, in which case, you will never get zero on your first ball. Even without it, whatever happens, I have never seen anyone ended a game with a zero. Practice makes perfect.

i had the same experience. though it was fun because i was with my friends. i know that i made a fool of myself trying to use my brain power to hit at least a single pin. i can still imagine myself as the bowling ball rolls along the alley and i performed the mind controlling ritual...and in the end, it still falls into the gutter. actually, all of my friends are bad at bowling yet we still play for the fun of it, of course, to enjoy each others company
