Why Stepping Onto the Bowling Lanes is a Bad Idea

This woman got really, really excited when she bowled a strike. Here's why you should never step foot on the bowling lanes ...

I hate to admit this, but I was on a bowling team a few years ago. Anyway, one of the guys on the other team overstepped the line and ended up with a bad concussion.

It looked like she lobbed (or is it loft?) the ball; if so, then that strike did not count--at least that was the rule at most of the bowling alleys I have been to.

If this is true, that is definitely kicking a person when they are down.

I laughed, then felt bad for her. I think the level of funniness is relative to the injury. Seeing someone fall down usually induces a laugh. Seeing someone knock out their teeth, break a bone, crack their skull - cringe inducing horror

Ive seen people at bowling alleys on their first time that did not know they were not supposed to walk on the lane until told by employees.

Kinda funny, but then not. At least it wasn't people laughing at some guy getting hit in the balls.

I didn't know they waxed the lanes that much.

Was this worth of publishing? What a bore. I must be an idiot to come to this website anyway."

I guess it takes a bigger idiot to leave a comment after one has had that thought about coming here...
