If you didn't already know (and shame on you if you didn't), this is National Bowling Week. It started Saturday, the day before my birthday, and it continues through this Saturday, when bowlers throughout America will attempt to set a record for the most single games bowled in a day.
I kicked off NBW at Cowtown Lanes on Saturday. My family and friends took me out for my birthday, and I was feted with some awesome bowling paraphernalia, including a clock with pins and a replica of The Dude's bowling shirt from The Big Lebowski. I also received a guilty pleasures handbook -- something I know a thing or two about -- and an "I Don't Roll on Shabbos" T-shirt.
In other words, it was a perfect day.
But the fun doesn't have to stop there. Don't forget to do your part on Saturday to set a record. You'll even get a nifty certificate, and a place in bowling history.
