So, this is a new one. I got called to a pair for a ball return, determined it must be in the underground. We had an underground on that pair last night, so now I'm thinking we have something wrong I need to look for. But when I cleared the jam, I found the lead ball had the kid's name written around the whole circumference of the ball in thick layers of duct tape. I've been bowling for 24 years and I've never seen anything like that before.

Anybody have other bizarre stories of strange things they've seen in bowling centers?

^ WTF man?  Duct tape around the bowling ball????

Craziest thing I ever saw was one of my friends had his ball get stuck on his thumb, lofted the ball into the right gutter, the ball bounced out went across the lane into the left gutter. [tongue]  I told him he couldn't make up his mind which big blue board to shoot for! [biggrin]

was bowling in an optional summer "try to break 175 on THIS crap" kind of league.
one of the area's best bowlers (George J., for you Detroit guys), a strong lefty got a little ticked at leaving a 7-pin and threw the ball really hard at it. it went into the left gutter, zinged across the pit, came back out the right gutter before the sweep came down, and rolled all the way up the gutter and back to the bowler.
a new version of the automatic ball return.

One of the bowlers on my high school's boys team threw with a ton of end-over-end forwards rotation. One day he shot at a 10 pin and missed into the gutter. The ball hit a pin lodged in the back corner of the pit, jumped into the air, hit the bottom of the pinsetter and landed back on the pin deck still spinning, before rolling itself back into the pit.

Can't you spell Juszczyk Cat.   Pronounced Juh-sick I think?

Speaking of hanging thumbs Ron "Rocket" L. threw the ball up into the ceiling tiles at the foul line.  They had to go get a 12' step ladder to retrieve it.

Spell it? I can't even say it. I call him George. I can say (and spell) that.

Nice shot, Rocket.

Rocket Ladach and Rock-on Wilson.  Add in Big John Cseh who can talk loud enough to carry on a conversation 3 pairs down.  He also has a very flowery language.  He could embarrass the guy who owns the Bunny Ranch on HBO.
