Tang is good.

We hadn't bowled since back in the day, back when there were bumpers in the gutters and everyone won and we all got cake. A couple weeks ago, we decided to go bowling again. Guess what? It was really freakin' hard.

The damn ball - which is pretty heavy, think w
e started with a 12-pounder - won't go straight. Pretty sure the lane is waaaay to long. So we decided we'd get a lighter ball. Problem solved, right? Nope. Do you know how hard you have to throw an 8 pound bowling ball to knock over all - or even most - of the pins? Neither do we, because we can't throw it that hard. We were feeling like bitches.

Needless to say, we sucked. Bowled like a 116 in our best game. For those of you unfamiliar with bowling, that's bad. We were awful. Our self esteem wasn't exactly soaring. So when we heard this story, we felt like absolute bitches.

Michael Tang bowled a perfect game
, and he's 10 years old. Ten! What grade is that, third? In third grade, we could barely get a basketball to the rim, and this little kid just bowled a perfect game in a sanctioned event. I bet he can even do this spin thing, too, which if we would have tried would have snapped our wrist in three places.

At least the little spin thing would explain how he could knock over all the pins with an 8 pound ball, unlike us. Oh, he used a 16 pound ball? Twice the weight we could handle?


We are bitches. Ouch.
