I first started bowling when I was 16. I was in high school when I started and my family has been bowling for years, my uncles and everyone, it’s like a clan thing. Even at family reunions we would end up at the bowling alley. So, I guess you could say it’s in my DNA. I’m not a very good bowler, but it’s in my DNA. I really like the people here, it’s fun and the friendships you establish over the years, it’s a lot of fun. I’ve met some great people.
One time I had ten strikes in a row and I ended up with a 289. That was significant. It’s my favorite memory because I looked impressive all the way up until the end. I bowled just before the anchor bowler and the anchor bowler only beat me by one. I tell that story all the time because it was so fun.
I really like the people. And the fact that I’ve been coming here for years, I’ve bowled with the same league for years, I’ve grown up with these people. We’ve watched each other’s children grow up. I actually retired from bowling for about 10 years and what brought me back is that I played a bad round of golf so the intent was I’d just come back and bowl for a league and get it out of my system and I’ve been here ever since.
