There are a ton of them in this thread from a few weeks back.http://www.bowlingcommunity.com/b/ubbthreads.php/topics/83636/1.html
I'll add one of my own though, and it's similar to "loud" guy. We have a guy in our league that will occasionally yell at his teammates balls as they head down the lane. His whole team was being completely obnoxious a few weeks back, yelling and screaming the whole night!!!
BUT, what really annoys me about this guy is that he thinks he's Pete Weber
. He will be bowling like #[email protected]
# (he's a 170-180 avg), and then throws a strike, followed by spinning around and doing a crotch chop. I occasionally do a "mini-chop" to a guy on my team, just to get a laugh out of him. We've got all kinds of inside jokes aimed at him.
One of my other peeves was already mentioned. We have one guy in our league that, if we see him getting ready, we will grab our ball and go quick so we don't have to wait for him. He grabs his ball, takes about 5 seconds to cram his fingers and thumb in the ball juuuuuuuuuust right. Then, he drops his arm straight down at his side and lets it hang there for about 5 seconds. Then he takes his left hand and puts it over the front side of the elbow on his throwing arm, and stands there for another 2-3 seconds. Then his approch is slow as @#@#, as he takes about a 12 inch back swing, and throws the ball about 9 mph down the lane. He's lucky to hit the pocket more than 50% of the time, and when he does, his ball just deflects off the pins because he throws it so slow.
Then on the other side, you have the guys my age and younger, in their first year in a league, who grab their house ball and race up to the line when you are in the middle of lining up to go. Bunch of idiots.
