I didn't know that I can still throw bowling.
I actually like bowling (but not as much as figure skating). My romance with bowling started after watching Paeng Nepumuceno who became a bowling legend (see sample video insert). I think the most important skill in bowling is proper alignment of the body and the slide of the ball (i repeat- slide, not throw).
Anyway my body now aches because of this bowling, but it's actually fun to play (although not cheap). One rink costs 10 OMR + 2 OMR per player.
If you play bowling on a regular basis, then it must cost you an arm and a leg. But occasional games I think is fine.

My starting rounds were a mess, and the first throw was actually a 0 / 0 (meaning, no pin down). But when I got the hang of the ball, and the rink then things got better.
I managed to cap the first round on 3rd place (with two strikes), and 1st place on the second round (with two strikes... I wanted to turkey so badly I got so conscious!)
Anyway, I think I might just go do bowling again soon. :)
