Bowling

Took the kids bowling today. Aside from really stinking it up (a craptastic 101 then a semi-respectable 138) I noticed something that everyone who's ever bowled has glimpsed.

This applies pretty much only to men.

Say you are a guy and you are bowling. You get your ball, prepare yourself and walk/run/sashay up to the line and throw/roll/bowl the ball towards the pins.

Here's where it gets interesting...

A milli-second after he sees what he got, one of two things happens.

1. If he got a strike or a spare, he will either turn suddenly and pump his arm like Tiger Woods. Then he'll stride back and either take a sip of beer or whatever he's drinking and bask in the envious glow of every single person in the entire bowling alley. I know he feels this way, because that's how I feel.

2. If he gets anything less than a strike or a spare, including if he missed an impossible split he'll turn around and not look anyone directly in the eyes. At this point, he'll either sit …

Pitchers and Catchers!

Hope springs eternal!

Baseball is almost back!

Predictions purely based on my own biases:

AL East - Yankees
AL Central - Tigers
AL West - A's
Wildcard - Red Sox

NL East - Mets
NL Central - Brewers
NL West - Padres
Wildcard - Cubs (ha!)

Yanks beat Mets in a 7 game subway series. ARod gets 12 hits and drives in 23 runs in those 7 games.

Like I said - hope springs eternal.
