84-year-old grandmother makes strike on her first time bowling ever

That made me smile.

Heh. I’d never roll again. “Oh, is that all you were trying to do? Pssh, nothing to it.” And I would retire from the game, having never bowled anything but strikes.


For the life of me I cannot understand why Candlepin never caught on anywhere but New England. It is more challenging to get a high score - which makes it more fun, and yet it is easier for little kids, women, and older people as the ball is much lighter - which makes it more fun. Also fun for teenage boys as they can heave the ball down the alley and see the pins explode all over.

A strike in Candlepin is so much more fun - and more rare - than a ho-hum strike on Tenpin.

What’s not to like?


Imagine what she could do if she took her coat off ! Bravo my dear, still finding firsts at 84. That will keep you young.

My mother won Lotto the first time she played. (It was only four out of six numbers, but I think it counts as a win anytime you come out ahead.)

:ok_hand: Wonderful things :ok_hand:

Interesting, because I came to this comment section to mention that my physics teacher in high school claimed to have gotten a hole in one on his first shot his first time golfing, and never played another course in his life for just this reason. (To have a perfect golf record) True story! I mean it’s true that he told us this. I still have a hard time believing it but he sure played it strait in class X-D
