After a couple of years off, I'm getting a team together for a "Barely Bowlers" league.

As the name applies, it's for those of us who aren't particularly good at bowling. It's a mixed league, and the emphasis is on fun with friends. (Although last time I was the women's champion!)

What should our team's name be this season?

You know, it's probably been ten years since I've been bowling, and I think I'd really like to go.

It's fun. But you've been busy skydiving and human waste.

"Turn On The Bumpers" sounds like a great name.

I might go bowling next weekend (or the week after, if I don't already have plans).

My sister, my nephew, and his wife go bowling now and again. They bowl one game with their dominant hand, one with the other hand, and then one "granny style" using both hands. They have a great time.

Cool beans.

The closest commercial space to our house is a bowling alley.
I've been to it several times and keep thinking if I had money I'd totally revamp it.
Most of the times I had been to it was for kids' parties.
They make decent business doing those parties, but it is a pretty second rate affair, with some of the WORST pizza you could imagine. (in this neck of the woods there is no excuse for bad pizza).
The place is threadbare and has no-named equipment. Shoddy everything.
IMHO the place needs a makeover, with AMF or Baldwin lanes/equipment, retro decor, and a better computer software score display, etc
They should either revamp their food service or have one of the local pizzarias take it over and get a contract with one or two of the local breweries.
I've been to a couple of the newer bowling places in NYC and one of the things they do really well is their food and bar service. It's an actual destination because of it.

Well, don't leave us hanging. Have you chosen a name for the team yet? Is there a shortlist?

You can still bowl if you've quit dancing.

I hope that thing has a good grip. There are some RPMs taking place.

E=mc^2

I would not want to be behind that ball if the grip fails.

Of course, it is actually CGI.

Whew!

Because if that thing was real, I have even more fear of the day robots become sentient.
