Dave Barry "We have fun--that's what I like about bowling. You can have fun even if you stink, unlike in, say, tennis. Every decade or so, I attempt to play tennis, and it always consists of thirty-seven seconds of actually hitting the ball and two hours of yelling, ''Where did the ball go?'' ''Over that condominium!'' Etc. With bowling, once you let go of the ball, it's no longer your legal responsibility. They have these wonderful machines that find it for you and send it right back."
