things that rock: day 22

day 22: bowling

bowling is AWESOME. when i was younger(3rd grade) and lacked both coordination and self confidence, my mom decided that i needed a sport that required no natural talent or athletic prowess. hello bowling. i was great. i slowly learned how to throw a ball that curved and moved up the bowl america ranks. my junior year of high school, i participated in a tournament and won youth of the year. its not the super bowl... but its damn close.

i still play every now and then. it reminds of the days when i got trophies for 6th place. when i won awards like "highest score with handicap" and "most improved" and just generally celebrated mediocrity. those were the days.
