As a kid, I was always a huge fan of bowling. My parents were both in a bowling league before they had kids, and as far as a fun family activity goes, bowling always won out. It didn't hurt that there was a reasonably priced, delightfully scuzzy bowling alley in our neighbourhood (which was also the neighbourhood my mother grew up in!), the Newtonbrook Bowlerama. All of my childhood birthday parties were here: greasy pizza, gutter bumpers and all. One time, I even out-bowled two teenage boys the next lane over, when I was young. Now, I'm very much out of practice, and must have just been killing it that day when I was 10, because I barely broke 100 this trip out. It didn't really matter, though. Just seeing the incredible lack of any updates to the Bowlerama whatsoever made it all worth while... it was a total trip back to the mid 90's!!
Yes, I do have the most ridiculous bowling form ever. I look like a gentleman bowing. I don't know where I got it from, but any attempts to correct it were just an utter failure. I'm doomed to forever look like an idiot when I bowl. Tragic, really! Thanks for taking a peek at a fond childhood memory with me :)
