For some reason, this seems really exciting!

I'm a very uneven bowler... hopefully someone will still want me on their team  ;)

I am not embarrassed to say that bowling is playing a large role in my decision process.

This is really embarrasing, but in 5th grade, I was on a bowling team.  We got our own ball at the end... might have to dig that baby up  ;D

I was the president of the German club - in high school AND college. AND i was on a bowling team! 

Awesome. I did German dancing with the club. Liederhosen pinned to khaki shorts. Recorded music punctuated with yodels. Knee-slapping and twirling.

All I can ask myself now is: why?

Ok, these responses are so fun that I started a new "dorky clubs" thread in the Off-Topic area  :)

<-----Proud member of the Pre-Emptive Strikes, 3-time (and counting) NYU intramural bowling champions.  I even have the purple and white championship tshirt to prove it.  Maybe I should have applied to Penn and sent a highlight tape.

Every week, pretty much the entire Notre Dame Law student body goes bowling.  I guess it's a great excuse to get sauced and throw heavy objects.

bowling + college: surprisingly underrated by society.

there was nothing (other than some community service obligations, of course) that i liked doing better on winter friday afternoons than tagging along with my dorm's intramural bowling team and getting some free games in at the locals' alley

An interesting aside about the Penn bowling activity: the bowling alley is co-owned by a current Penn Law student.
