I recently joined a bowling league. Bolstered by my first game score of 108 (the last time I played in a league I never broke 100), I decided to treat myself to my own bowling ball. The man at the pro shop was awesome and clearly well suited to his job. He measured my fingers, the span of my hand, had me flex and bend my fingers & thumb, it was great. I also picked out a bag & shoes so I am all set! The new custom drilled ball felt perfect, so I told the guy I fully expected to break 150 in my next game. =P
Well... not quite. I rolled a 54! Yup... 54 pins in 10 frames. That was possibly my worst score since Jr. High. Fortunately my team did not kick me off... so I'll be back for more next week. I think I've figured out the problem though. He needs a name! I toyed with the idea of "Homer"... but that's not terribly original. He's orange... so maybe something like "Blaze" or "Flame" but then I was thinking... it might be more appropriate to go with a stereotypical bowler name like "Al" or "Joe". But then, I've been wanting to name something "October" for a while. I need ideas. What would you name him?
