I’m certain that a lot of you didn’t know that I’m a bowling fanatic, and against all odds I became the bowling champ this weekend. On Friday I got together with some friends for some good ole fashion bowling. Nothing beats good bowling and cold beer on a Friday night…..yeah right…but seriously though bowling is a fun time all around. What made this bowling trip different from the rest is that I simply couldn’t lose. The more fun I had with it, the better I was getting…or maybe it was just the beer. I even tried sandbagging, and I still managed to score a pretty good game. We bowled five games and out of the five games bowled I manged to go five for five in the win column, and in the process demolished the five bowlers that tagged along with me. On average I scored 190 points out of a possible 300 points per game – which by the way is a perfect game in bowling.
For those of you who are bowling fanatics like me, here are a few funny bowling slogans:
“No splits too wide if you got the balls”
“Bowlers keep your minds out of the gutter”
“Bowling – Where you get 3 strikes and you’re still not out”
“Bowlers proudly do it in alleys”
“I’m right up your alley….”
“That’s how I roll…”
And for the gentlemen, I’d like to introduce you to….drum roll please…….”Bikini Bowling”….enjoy! :)
And now for this week’s edition of Sunday Link Charity……and as always….some solidly written pieces by some solid personal finance bloggers….enjoy! :)

And as I write this post he’s tweeting “2-0 Sens!!!! Spezza!!!!” …..I do own a TV, watch TV and follow NHL playoffs, but I didn’t know the Sens were in the playoffs. :)
Dividend Ninja – Mr. Ninja wrote an interesting post on why dividend cuts are a good thing. And after reading the post I can say that he makes a pretty good argument.
