Phone's ringing, Dude.

I bowled a 229 today, missing my high score ever by THREE PINS. Spares in the first two frames, strikes in the next six, and then ruined everything by missing an easy spare and opening up the ninth.

Lots of excitement in this game, too. In the second, I picked up the 1-5 by barely hitting the 1, which then slid into the wall and bounced back, knocking down the 5. I've never seen that happen in my life, and didn't even think it was possible. In the tenth, I knocked down nine with the first ball, and right as I picked up the 7 pin the power went out. It came back a few minutes later, and then after the system rebooted I saw that it'd saved my game through the ninth. I re-rolled the first two balls in the tenth rather than manually enter my spare; I think if I hadn't screwed up the ninth (which would've meant a potential score of 240+) I'd have entered the score manually. As it turned out, I rolled the exact same thing and then knocked down 7 for a 229. If that last ball had been a strike I'd have rolled a 232, beating my high score by one pin.

That's awesome! Sorry it's frustrating to miss an easy pick-up.

I once tied my best triple, 596. If I had only picked up that spare, I would have broken 600. Argh!
