Trying to appeal to the highest common denominator. I can't give you 110% effort, but I will give you 107.4% effort. If you're a spammer and leave me a comment, I will make fun of you. I use twice as many semicolons compared to most other bloggers

Brent gives a bowling lesson

Links to this post

If you can make a 7-10 split, this is not for you.
If you can effectively put spin on the bowling ball, this is not for you.
If you can even calculate a bowling score, this is probably not for you.

If you consistantly bowl less than a 100, like I do, then this is for you.

Obviously, the goal of bowling is to knock over as many pins as possible. To accomplish this goal, most people will throw the ball as fast as possible. If you are a bad bowler, your result usually will be half gutter balls. The rest of the time, you will knock over pin #7 with authority, and may get one lucky strike.

If this was the shot put, you can propel the ball as fast as you want, and it would be a good thing. However, in bowling, there is a problem about going strait down the middle to be effective.

When I bowl, I calmly walk to the line, make a practice bowl to ensure I am lined up correct, then make the actual bowl, which is done slowly. I then walk back to my seat, sit down, and watch six of the pins get knocked over.

I admit, this is not manly, but neither is bowling a 57.
