    We used to hit the Busch Gardens hospitality center at Williamsburg for the two free beers before going to shows at William and Mary Hall. The last time I remember doing that was for Social Distortion, The Pixies, Sonic Youth, and Neil Young. What a show!

    Is this thread topic now defunct, or just on life support? Someone please post something, and give it a shot of adrenalin.

    OK then.

    I went up to the mall last week to get a part for my washing machine at Sears. They had an appliance parts store there. Very handy and convenient.

    I didn't have a camera but the old Sears is now history and some giant Halloween outlet store was in it's place.

    Found the parts I needed on E-bay for a fraction of the price and they were delivered within a couple of days anyway.

    So add our Sears and many others to the now defunct.

    Quoted from o-din:

    It's been over a month since I tore the tendons in my elbow throwing fireballs at the bowling alley to finally beat both Nimblepin and Bob in the same game.

    And I will add it took a long time, but my elbow is finally completely healed and I feel I am ready to throw fireballs down the bowling alley again.

    For a while I thought it never would.

    Now Bob is the one with an injured leg so he can't go.

    Here is a tip- don't tear tendons in your elbow.

    Or- if your elbow is still a little sore from bowling one day, don't go back the next day or the day after and try to bowl through the pain. I guarantee it probably won't end well. Could be the reason baseball pitchers get several days rest between starts.

    Great news, where do you guys bowl? I'm bowling at Fountain Bowl tonight. Or trying to.

    We go to Carter or Linbrook usually. Wherever the deals are at.

    Concourse can get real busy, but I like that one as that is where all the pretty ladies hang out.

    Hey I just my daughter bowling for the first time too... Got her first strike, a Brooklyn to boot. Did you know those bumper guards csn come up on 1 persons turn only? Blew my mind. Then again I took like 8 years away from bowling after they went to electronic only scoring. Didn't take bowling class twice in college for nothing

    #159 7 months ago

    Don't trust that electronic scoring! It will rip you off!

    After it did me, I asked the dude for a traditional scoring paper and he looked a me like "a what?"

    Try asking for "an overhead", that's how we used to do it

    You gotta go back a long way to know what I am talking about.

    #161 7 months ago

    thelaw Bowling class twice? Damn, and I thought I was dense... Was it the scoring that threw you for a loop? I never seemed to have problem with the scoring but... wait a second... you meant because it was more fun than taking world History 101 twice? Duh... I get ya...

    #162 7 months ago

    Yeah man..I didn't even get credit the second time. Best morning class ever

    #163 7 months ago

    thelaw, I had Bicycling for my first class. The teacher and the rest of us used to bike down to the Beaver Grill and get a quick coffee and donut and make it back just in time to finish a number and head to our next class. You were woke AF after that.

    Looks like we may be adding Pabst Blue Ribbon beer to the list.

    I got two credits - Bowling and Advanced Bowling.

    My best college credit “score” was two 300 level credits I needed to graduate - Relaxation and Biofeedback.

    Bel-Mark? Ypsi-Arbor has been gone for awhile. The route op I worked for had the pins in both of those places.

    .

    Dammit advanced bowling?! No such love at a MAC school

    Quoted from MrBally:

    Family went bowling at colonial... Er "revel and roll" not the easiest bowling into 3 100' screens.

    Back in the day Eastern had a bowling ally in the union, where my class was. Of course you could also shoot a rifle on campus to win a turkey

    EDIT: no distractions here
