I think the reporter who wrote this story needs to cover some other sport - - - "For years, Shirkey, 65, has tried to achieve a bowler’s dream — ten throws, ten strikes — only to come up short." Sorry bud, there are 12, not 10, strikes in a perfect game.
Then, "Shirkey joined only four other bowlers to match the same feat." Sorry again, better check your facts before writing a story - there are a huge number of 300 games sanctioned by the PBA. For example, Parker Bohn III has rolled 85 perfect games during 24 PBA tour seasons.
Were we awake when we wrote this?
A statement in your letter caught my attention. You stated "The message you are sending is that you care more about the evil ones in the Middle East than you do our American troops."
You are exactly correct! Why? See: http://www.youtube.com/watch_popup?v=tCAffMSWSzY#t=28
A well written letter which I would be glad to sign with you also.
LOL - - "This year's squad has 75 players, including 19 starters - 10 on offense and nine on defense." Be careful - your opponents will be starting 22 players - - 11 on offense and 11 on defense. You may want to re-think your tactics!
Blondi, thank you for your comment. I hope your brother made it back for good and not just on leave for a while. Yes, the military did some crazy things during that era (no sunglasses in uniform included) and it often made you wonder exactly who we were fighting - - them or us! Again, thank you.
Lonelyone, thank you - that was a very nice comment. Yes, you are but just one person - - but remember, one person can start an avalanche.
It's been a lot of years - and we are still waiting - - - - for America to welcome us home from Vietnam!
I love it - - "we'll not be able to afford the free stuff anymore!".
Yep, that concept is going to have to be kept under wraps. I can see a passle of trouble coming down the trail on this one!
It's a darn shame when you have to pay $10 to fish for free - - - - wait a minute - - - - is this what they call "inflation"? Now I think I get it - it used to be free but now it costs $10 to be free. What a clever concept!
