Selling Out: Bowling Gear For The Left-Handed Dude

This is something new today, dudes. I was approached by a business website and they offered me a couple bills to run a story about bowling gear. Since I love bowling, I figured it was a win-win situation.

So, with that in mind, let’s get on with the sponsored content.

Choosing the Proper Equipment for Lefty Bowlers

 While there was a time when left-handed people would find it difficult to partake in the same activities as right-handed people simply for the reason that they could not find equipment that specifically addressed their needs, this is no longer the case. If you like bowling, for example, there is no reason whatsoever that you should not be able to enjoy your favorite pastime just because you are a lefty, as long as you get the right equipment.

 Bowling Ball

Bowling is fun.

Bowling balls come in a variety of different shapes and sizes so it is only normal that you will find them for left-handed people, as well. There is only a slight difference between these balls and regular ones as the holes are positioned differently. You need three holes for your thumb, ring finger and index finger in order to grip a ball correctly. The best recommendation here is to have your own custom ball which has been drilled to match your hand position exactly.

Bowling shoes

Bowling Shoes need to fit right.

 

It might sound weird that left-handed people would need different kinds of shoes. However, some players ascertain that lefties should use their left shoe to slide and their right shoe for traction when taking a shot. Since regular bowling shoes have the same kind of sole, they would require custom shoes in order to achieve a better performance.

 Gloves

Bowling gloves just look cool.A lot of pro players like to wear special gloves when bowling. Their texture provides more contact with the ball and allows the players to get a better grip. Oddly enough, these special gloves are not usually sold in pairs, so lefties would need to buy them only for their left hand.

Whenever you are looking for good bowling equipment such as cheap bowling bags, your needs can be met at bowlingbags.com, where you will find a large selection of quality products at affordable prices.

And there you have it, dudes and dudettes, our first sponsored post. Hope you enjoyed it.

Sunday Serenade: Too Drunk To Karaoke

The release of a new Jimmy Buffett album is always a reason for celebration, and this latest one is no exception.

The collection is called Songs from St. Somewhere and is, in a word, amazeballstastic. I might have just made up that word there, but I think you dudes get my point.

At his best, Buffett is a tremendous combination of rockin’, partyin’ loudmouth and soulful, sensitive crooner. On different songs, of course.

It’s the first part I want to celebrate here. In the tradition of Why Don’t We Get Drunk and Screw? Jimmy swings a duet with Toby Keith called Too Drunk to Karaoke and it is just exactly what you think it is.

Enjoy.

Poetic Bumble

A couple of quick things today, dudes. I’ve got a poem and a cute bumble bee.

No, seriously. The bumble bee is really very cute, especially for what it does.

You know what? Let’s just go to the video and let you decide for yourself.

See? I told you it was cute. I mean, how often do we get to see a bee give some guy’s finger the high-five?

Now for something a little more. . . somber. It’s a touching poem by a dude named Raul Gutierrez, who has a 3-year-old child. Lately, Raul has been keeping track of some of the more. . . wobbly bits he’s been telling the little dude. It’s a wonderful little piece that ends with an amazing stinger, one worthy of a high-fiving bee.

Get ready to feel your sensawonda get kicked up a notch or three and then get kicked in the nads. Just a warning. Watch out for that last line. Still, a very moving poem.

Lies I’ve told my 3 year old recently

Trees talk to each other at night.

All fish are named either Lorna or Jack.

Before your eyeballs fall out from watching too much TV, they get very loose.

Tiny bears live in drain pipes.

If you are very very quiet you can hear the clouds rub against the sky.

The moon and the sun had a fight a long time ago.

Everyone knows at least one secret language.

When nobody is looking, I can fly.

We are all held together by invisible threads.

Books get lonely too.

Sadness can be eaten.

I will always be there.

Yeah. See what I mean?
