Do You Think That Chess and Bowling Are Related?

Uh-oh, looks like MIL is meditating on that last one...

I have come a heck of a lot closer to bowling a perfect game than i ever have of playing a perfect game of chess.

Just some friendly advice here:  you might want to be careful about mentioning things like that in a public forum.  They kind of make you look bad.  I still respect you, of course, but I can't speak for the others.

I once bowled a 279 (yea..in 1 game)

The closest i have come to chess perfection is a game i played where i ONLY committed around 983,784 errors.

Yea...bowling is easier.

"279?"  Cool!  I took bowling in college and I did pretty well, but never got a score like that -- I know what an accomplishment that is.

(Now you see there, ghost?  Bacon just told us something that makes us respect him more.)

I was a total geek in my younger years.  Heck i still am!  It was chess and bowling for years.  Had to give up bowling due to shoulder issues.

Thank You.  Bu I think respect should be based on how the person acts, and treats others.  Not based on a bowling score.

I knew I shouldn't've switched specialists!...

And I think respect should be unilateral!  And not based on anything!

Chess and bowling were one floor apart at Cal. The lanes were in the basement of the Student Union building, and chess simuls would happen in the main room on the first floor, where I lost to Walter Browne (he looked like he would have beat me at bowling too).

GhostNight

I played Walter Browne, as well years ago, and lost, but I could have put up a better game but was too nervous playing and meeting him !

ghost_of_pushwood

tell me about it!

The only thing chess is related to is plugging holes in a leaking Dutch dyke on a cold and rainy day minus the fun and excitement.

@Ghostnignt, the fish in your avatar appears to be from lake Malawi in East Africa.

I suspect you keep fish and have imported these as part of your private collection.

this was a class? 

Ducking-Duck

@Al, bowling is a compulsory class for the hostage negotiation course as well as theology.

It teaches you much about the hit-and-miss aspect of both.

AlCzervik

that might have been interesting. 

too bad i did not take the classes on hostage negotiation or theology. 

everything i know about bowling i learned from the dude.
