Had the brilliant idea to try a few games in a part of the lane well inside of my comfort zone. It was a debacle. Every time I hit my target, I missed the headpin to the outside. Every time I pulled the ball 4-5 boards inside, it would go high-flush and strike. eek

By the title of this thread, I mean that if after all this time this is the best I can do, maybe I should take up knitting or something. My timing is still screwed up, and it appears to be [censored] everything else up with it.



Maybe I was spoiled to have candlepin technique come to me very, very easily. This has been very, very hard.
