Amaretto scented lipgloss?
2005-03-14 11:16:47 AM  
I want one that's White Russian-scented, Dude.
2005-03-14 12:06:42 PM  
Mine just smell like a $20 hooker's vaginal sweat.

Christ, doccm9. Anyone know how to clean coffee and vomit from a keyboard, or should I just buy a new one?

/make mine a Glenlivet
2005-03-14 12:38:21 PM  
Buy a new one you cheap bastard.

It is 2005: Where is my ball-scented amaretto?
2005-03-14 12:58:50 PM  
doccm9 I believe that's the "Courtney Love" version.

So let's see, Wisconsin has cornered the market on Cheese, scented bowling balls, bowling regulatory bodies, and umm fat people?
2005-03-14 12:59:43 PM  
Illegal use of the word "athlete" in the headline! Five point deduction.

"The bag does smell better especially when you have four or five of them,"

I doubt it would smell better, nor do I thing it would look better. You might be able to shoot through a wall though.

Athlete??? Bowling???
2005-03-14 01:02:50 PM  
One of my teammates have two of these. They really do smell good, but you have to be close to them. REALLY close to them...

How close were you?
2005-03-14 01:10:29 PM  
I'd like one scented like durian fruit, please.
2005-03-14 01:11:36 PM  
Seems to me, they should concentrate on making pleasant-scented rental shoes, instead.
2005-03-14 01:11:52 PM  
Personally I try to never have my nose that close to anyone's balls, so the scent would be totally wasted on me.
2005-03-14 01:12:04 PM  
They are crappy bowling balls though because they have spherical aka useless cores in them.
2005-03-14 01:14:09 PM  
and he said the smell makes a difference when someone chooses between two balls of the same price.

2005-03-14 01:15:20 PM  
Yeah, but how do they taste?

I don't think I want to know what the lower-end balls smell like.
2005-03-14 01:19:42 PM  
My bowling ball smells like rancid lane oil and old cigarettes.

/I hate bowling
2005-03-14 01:19:56 PM  
They've been in business since 2000 and they've only made 40 scents.
2005-03-14 01:21:53 PM  

I almost choked on my sandwich.
Nice comment.
2005-03-14 01:25:05 PM  
I am a member of the PBA and I own several of these balls. I have two cherry scented, one orange scented, and one chocolate scented. When they first came out I thought they would smell for a week and then start to wear out. Boy, was I wrong. They still smell as strong as they day I bought them. The scents did not influence my purchase, its just that Storm makes the best equipment on the market.

mmmmmmmmm.......gunpowder scented
2005-03-14 01:34:40 PM  
But do they come in Chocolate Salty?
2005-03-14 01:36:36 PM  

They should post tips in FarQ.

1. Do not eat or drink anything in a thread when the word ball(s) appears in the headline.

2. If you choose to ignore #1 have a backup keyboard and someone available to administer the Heimlich.

For the ladies, a hundred-thirty pounds of beef, yeah
Chinky eyes, curly hair and gold teeth
Swingin with this here stud, you need practice
I'm leavin used rubbers on the mattress

When I'm with my homies, we're rollin
Can't love a car unless it's stolen
Don't ask me what the price is,
but it's more than pussy tickle devices

Chorus: (Daddy-O), Hi-C

(And you can fell the..)
Sweat from my balls!
(You can feel the..)
Sweat from my balls!
(You can feel the..)
Sweat from my balls!
Sweat from my balls!
(You can feel the..)
Sweat-sweat from my balls!
Sweat from my balls!

I have it on good authority that my balls smell like baby formula.
2005-03-14 01:59:15 PM  
First of all my intials are AJ, I never use my first name on websites. Second, here is a picture of my PBA card I took seconds ago with my digital camera: [image from too old to be available]
2005-03-14 02:01:47 PM  
Mr./Ms. Elliot confuses me. Nice card though, I guess.
2005-03-14 02:07:22 PM  
Well, if the four-time PBA champion Ryan Shafer uses them, sign me up. Truly a king among men.

"I like to keep my balls smelling fresh."
2005-03-14 02:24:08 PM  
Gotcha, I'm just always skeptical. I've been bowling league for 30 years and I've heard a lot of folks make the claim and not many back it up. Nice to meet someone who did. :)

No harm, no foul.
2005-03-14 02:39:55 PM  
Wow, so it really IS *the* A____ J. Elliott, pro bowler! I wouldn't have believed it without the proof...
2005-03-14 04:09:39 PM  
So, if the balls are scented, would that smell transfer over to my club ???? Cause god knows I don't want a smelly driver......

2005-03-14 06:46:41 PM  
aww fark, i thought it was for testicles
2005-03-15 07:58:43 PM  
"Hey! You main characters, there! Come over here and grab my balls!"
