Our latest angry bowler tale comes from Rocklin, California. It’s supposedly part of greater Sacremento; I didn’t find it to be that exactly, but I’ll allow as there are some nice folks there. ‘Course, I can’t say I seen London, and I never been to France, and I ain’t never seen no queen in her damn undies as the fella says. From Y! News:
Police said a dispute over bowling etiquette led one man to assault another with a 16-pound ball, knocking out one of the man’s teeth. They said a 24-year-old man hit a man in the face with the bowling ball during a melee involving six bowlers at the Rocklin AMF Lanes. Two groups got into a fist fight about 12:40 a.m. Thursday after two bowlers approached the lane at the same time. They couldn’t agree which should go first.
The suspect was being held on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon in Placer County Jail.
So if you’ve never been bowling regularly, it’s considered bad form to step up onto the lane when someone on the lane next to you has already done so. That’s a lot to keep in mind when you’re wearing such funny-looking shoes. That’s where the amphetamines comes in.
