Now you are taking my game.. 654 last Tuesday. I was stroking like a mfr. Man I love bowling. It is such an awesome game - what other game can you drink while you are playing, etc.? I buy a ball - use it for 60 games - resurface, repeat, repeat and throw it out. Buy another one. Only buy the best they make too. It is all about the equipment. I average 198 right now. I am working on breaking the 200 mark soon.
