Nearly got into a little fight last time there was shadow practice (house 99% of the time allows pins for practice). Dude in front of me on the opposing team was waiting for pins to set that would never come. I urged him to go...only got ten minutes here.

Nope, he's waiting on pins.

You don't need pins.

Laughed at me. He needs pins.

Then you're a s*cky bowler and don't know what you're doing so get out of my way.

#@!!&$!^%*!!!!

--yeah, I probably shouldn't say things like that.

I'm guessing it's because people confuse "warm-ups" with "practice." They think the 10 minutes before bowling is their practice time, instead of using it to get loose and figure out the lanes.

You were right to tell the guy he sucked and didn't know what he was doing, though maybe a bit more tact would be in order next time? lol

Feh, it's one of those "social" leagues wherein it's social until it's time to bowl my team. Suddenly, it's all about the rules and "opening up that can of whoop a**". Whatever.

The league we just finished for the year was much, much better than the previous. At least my teammate didn't get into a shoving match. Believe it or not, he didn't start it. President of the organization of the leagues did.

My first couple of shots are just to loosen up, either way, it doesnt matter what is out there, it is really just to get my muscles loose. I do stretch and all, but usually the first 2 or 3 shots I am really just looking to loosen up. The next 3 or 4 are really solid shots to see what I am doing.
