Strike!

November 12, 2006

That's a much more enjoyable sound when bowling than when at home plate.

Bowling, a great American pastime, could be traced back as far as 3200 BC after a British anthropologist found a collection of objects in an Egyptian grave that appeared to be a crude form of bowling, according to the International Bowling Museum and Hall of Fame's Web site.

Today, 95 million people in more than 90 nations bowl, according to www.bowlingmuseum.com.

Many people belong to leagues, while others bowl strictly for fun with tenpins (the big bowling balls and pins) or duckpins (the smaller version).
