Here ya go, Subby. Look at the "almost perfect" story, though it would be cooler if the chimps in the first one had bowled a perfect game.

Just happened to be driving somewhere, listening to that show when it originally aired.

Just think, people will go to that bowling alley and see your name with all the other 300 bowlers and have no idea who the heck you are.
 
2013-01-07 10:14:24 PM  
If that is something that makes you full of yourself, you have a truly sad, pathetic life.
 
2013-01-07 10:16:23 PM  
Congrats!

A few more and you'll tie my Grandmother's record. Granted, she was 65 and all.

This'll help.  It's bowlingfer chrissakes.  Hardly a life skill.

Actually I suck at Wii bowling. Totally not the real thing.

Ignore them, submitter.  A 300 game is huge, whether it's your first or your fiftieth.  Congratulations.
 
2013-01-07 10:23:57 PM  
I haven't bowled since I was in leagues as a kid, but hey, that's a cool accomplishment, and yes, it's bragworthy for a bit.

Bowling is pretty fun, but I've never been any good at it.
 
2013-01-07 10:54:21 PM  
Wow, subby. Good for you.

This reminds me of the Best Korea's departed Dear Leader, who bowled a perfect 300 during his very first attempt at bowling.

You're in good company.

If you were playing baseball you would have struck out four times.

Obviously you're not a golfer.

Bowling, like pool, is a game in which the more I drink, the better I get. Darts is the same way, if by "better" you mean "hitting people with darts." Which is what I mean.

No, if he were playing baseball, he'd be batting 1000 for twelve at bats.
 
2013-01-08 12:16:50 AM  
Bravo.  How many of those were on a house-shot vs. a flat "sport" pattern?  Extra bonus for the ones on the flatter oil pattern.
 
2013-01-08 12:20:11 AM  
Competitive bowler here...used to make decent $$ in amateur tournaments and so forth...competed in some PBA regionals and seriously considered going to Q-school one year.

I know the feeling...there's nothing like the moment of silence before you get ready to take the 12th shot...and then if it feels good off your hand....awesomeness.

You're not helping. Read the end of the headline!

To slam your ego down:  If you did it on a house shot with more than 15-to-1 ratio of inside-ouside oil, that's basically "bumper bowling for adults."  Still not easy to shoot a 300, but you're not PBA tour material just because you punched 12 on a shot that funnels your ball into the pocket.

I'm not saying it has to be the US Open pattern (1-1,) but flatter than a house shot shows quality game.
 
2013-01-08 12:46:32 AM  
Also, if you haven't already, go read Focused for Bowling, by Dean Hinitz.  One of the greatest books I've ever read about mastering the mental game, and applicable to many other areas of life as well.
 
2013-01-08 12:49:50 AM  
Still waiting for someone to bowl a 300 during atomic bowling.
 
2013-01-08 12:54:51 AM  
Yo, subby!

I'm really happy for you and Imma let you finish but look at all the games you bowled when you didn't roll 300.
 
2013-01-08 01:07:16 AM  
You sound Polish.
 
2013-01-08 01:59:27 AM  

SurfaceTension: Subby here.


The balls, wrist guard, shoes, and synthetic lanes are all it takes nowadays for anyone to bowl a 300.  No skill at all.

Just kidding.  Seriously, congrats. :-)  It's an incredible accomplishment.  You gotta love when the whole damn house is off the lanes and silent for that last ball.  Everyone there was rooting for you.
 
2013-01-08 02:02:39 AM  
Turn off the bumpers next time and I might care

Was it Ten Pins or Candle Pins. Ten Pins, eh, almost like tossing a steam roller down the alley. Candle Pins? I'm impressed.

I once watched a 34 year old virgin bowl three 300 games in a row faster than I can bowl one game.

He should go pro but he's too dorky even for bowling endorsements

If drinking beer is considered a normal part of the activity, then it is NOT a sport.  It's a game.

/darts is my game

2013-01-08 03:40:28 AM  
I did not know that there was a bowling "season."

But I think if you totaled all the games I've rolled, they would equal 300.

I was in a league once. They oiled the lanes for the big money 6pm league (no idea what pattern) and then we went on right after at 9pm, no lane conditioning in between. I wonder if that made the one guy's 300 (and my teammate's 10 strikes on multiple nights) easier or harder. Thoughts, or would you need to know what the big league was starting with?

Awwww, alley balls!

//but even Hitler didn't brag about it on the Internet. So you're worse than Hitler.

I'll be impressed when you do that in candlepin.

Gig103: Thoughts, or would you need to know what the big league was starting with?


Well, one thing to consider is that the oil pattern changes as its bowled on, and some of it depends on who bowled first, the surface of the bowling ball(s) they used, and the target lines they used on their squad.  Sometimes, this can increase the margin for error, other times, it can dramatically decrease it.
