    So here I am at bowling night. I throw a strike - a major accomplishment for someone as athletically-challenged as myself, right? Then one of the pins BOUNCES BACK AND STANDS UP! [​IMG] WTF? The bowling gods hate me. Stupid game.

    P.S. I did get the spare. [​IMG]

    I'm going bowling this afternoon for the first time in 10 years. It should be a hoot. Maybe I'll ask them to put the bumpers up for me. [​IMG]

    That's a pretty freak occurrence you experienced.
    I'm still trying to break 200, with a 193 as my highest. My average is low, in the 120s probably. Although the day of the 193, I averaged 146 in 3games. 106,193,140 weird huh?

    I think you should get 10 extra points. Not sure I've ever seen that happen.

    FWIW, my average is in the high 140s. Last season, on one awesome night, I actually managed a 600 series including my highest game yet: 243. Woo-hoo! Then, later in the season, I got a patch for the night I bowled a triplicate. Unfortunately the score of those games was like ten pins under my average. :b

    As for the bouncing pin, after it stood up it was knocked down by the rack since it was out of place. Had to be reset and as I said, I managed the spare.

    Incredibly odd that a pin would stand back up.... we are talking about 10-pin, correct ?

    My average is ~165, with a high game of 235. Candlepin average (when I lived in New England) was ~105, can't remember my high game. Anyone bowl candle pins out there ?

    My highest ever was a perfect game -- 300. I have yet to duplicate it, but my second highest score since I started bowling again is 212.
