As a kid, I spent a lot of time at the bowling alley. Anytime we stayed at Granny and Papa's house, they would take us with them for their bowling league events. My brother and I would usually play the arcade games and eat pizza while Granny and Papa bowled. We always had so much fun, and we really got interested in bowling.
A bit later, we joined a family bowling league. It was my Dad, my brother and I, and my Dad's then (evil) girlfriend, now ex-wife. My brother and I didn't want to be around this awful woman, but this was an activity we had no say in..We had to go, period...Which leads to a kind of funny story.
When I was around 11, I was a pretty good bowler. Nothing amazing, but definitely decent for a kid. Well one league night, I also had a basketball game. I was a forward, and I didn't want to have to skip my game to go bowling. Needless to say, I was forced to go bowling, and I was MAD. I put forth absolutely no effort that night, and actually tried to make gutter-balls as often as possible. Childish? Yes. Definitely. But I was a child. One game, I scored a 7. Yes, 7 pins the whole game. It was horrible!
At the end of the season, the bowling league awarded various trophies. They had a ton of categories, so even the not-so-great bowlers or kids would still feel they did a great job. I ended up getting 2 trophies: Highest score for my age range, and LOWEST score for my age range...That darn 7 game came back to haunt me!
