Who is the Michigan radio personality still looking to bowl a perfect game? It's me, a guy who has been bowling for years and years. I started bowling when I was around 10 years old and I'm still bowling at the age of 66.
Have i ever come close to bowling a perfect game? Twice, once in 2006 at Spare Time Entertainment Center in Lansing, that was a 279 game.
The second time was at the City Tournament at Pro Bowl East on MLK in Lansing, right around 2010 or so. That game was a 278.
The most strikes I've ever had in a row, twelve, but not in the same game. I once had 11 strikes in a row from the 2nd frame through the 10th frame, and then a strike in the first frame of the next game. Go figure.

Bowling is a crazy game where you either love it or you hate it. Depends on who you ask. And please don't ask comedian Jim Gaffigan:

By the way, my worst game ever was at the City Tournament last year out at Royal Scot in Lansing. I think I bowled the lowest score ever, 98. I only had one spare in that entire embarrassing game.

Over the years I've bowled at some great bowling alleys here in the Greater Lansing area.

In no particular order:

1. Spare Time.

2. Royal Scot.

3. Pro Bowl East and West

4. City Limits.

5  All Star Lanes

6. Metro Bowl.

These days my wife and I are bowling together every Tuesday in a league out at Spare Time Entertainment Center. And we team up for the singles and doubles city tournament out at Royal Scot Golf and Bowl every year.

You would think that after all these years, I would have bowled the perfect game by now. It's still a work in progress. Maybe I will and maybe I won't, but I'll keep on trying!

(how about a few laughs)
