Girlfriend and I bought a Wii about a year ago. All
we do is play 100-pin
Yeah, I know. We're sad little people.

Star Wars, Super Mario Galaxy... but at the end of

taking about forty seconds from start to finish.

no living with me.
I have, however, managed a strike bouncing it three

gotten close on occasion. There's always this one
pin that won't go down. We've dubbed him "Fred, God
of Pins". He vexes me.
And lest you think me crazed let me leave you with
these last two words: Strip Bowling.
Addendum: I just found out they make a Wii
Bowling Ball! Hail, Fred!
