So, I went bowling today for the first time in a couple years, as I'm joining a bowling league this fall. Bowled a 222 my 3rd game, beating my previous best of 219. I was bowling really well that game, but after starting with 4 strikes, my buddy's wife started joking about a 300 game, and I threw the next ball into the gutter (lol). 8 strikes that game, but the open in the 5th killed me.

Last game, I was completely in the zone. 11 strikes in a row, all perfectly in the pocket, nothing sloppy. My heart was beating out of my chest at this point, and the 12th ball was my worst throw of the game, but not a bad throw. I didn't quite get it out as wide as my other balls, but I still hit the pocket square. 10 pin remained standing. 299. I don't know if I'll ever be in that position again, but damn was it exciting and ultimately heartbreaking.

299. Dammit. :banghead:

Yeah - I bowled a 299 once. Took 4 games but I celebrated anyway.

Congrats and that sucks all in one!

Better then me, I get screwed in the 11th frame. The last time it happened we were bowling 10 pin tap, so the 11th counted as a strike and I nailed another true strike in the 12th. Go figure. I still have to rest my hat on my 800 series.

I did that once. Does it still count if the bumpers are up?

I haven't quite figured out if I'm happy or pissed, lol. A fair amount of both, I suppose...

800 series? Damn impressive...

Nice job.

It was a blast!
