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.


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.

Buy A Ticket At Walmart, See Man Of Steel Before Nationwide Opening! Aw, Yeah!

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Warner Bros. Which means I’m getting a little bit of cash to tell you something I would have done anyway. Mostly I would have written about this to try and prod Zippy the College Boy Returned Home For Summer and Hyper Lad into getting this sort of thing for me as a Father’s Day present.

Remember when I talked about how I’d love some sort of bespoke, handmade present, something that showed the young dudes put a little thought and effort into getting the present? Yeah? Forget it.

This is what I want.thumbnail1

And, if you’re smart, it’s what you’re going to want as well.

So here’s the skinny.

Walmart is offering you — yes, you — a chance to see the new Superman movie, Man of Steelbefore it opens nationwide at what looks to be every theater in existence. Yeah, before that massive opening, you’re going to get a chance to get a head start, be treated like the star you are.

If you go buy your ticket at the electronics department of any local Walmart store, you can go to a specially designated movie theater (you’re on your own here, but it shouldn’t be that hard to find out. Probably on the ticket. But, come on? Really? I’m not going to do everything for you dudes.) and see the movie at 7 pm on June 13.

That’s the Thursday before Father’s day, and definitely the first showing of any kind anywhere in the United States. This is a big deal. It’s the first time this has ever been done, offering tickets to the general public so we can go see a movie before it opens.

Man-of-Steel-Horizontal-Billboard-Image-610x296Normally, this sort of thing only is offered to very select businesses. For instance, I once got tickets to see Spy Kids 3D early. I regretted going, mind, but I did get the tickets for free from Rebel Base, a premier comic book shop here in Charlotte, NC.

This time, though, it’s not a question of who you know, but of whether or not you can get someone to go to Walmart and pony up the ticket price. And that shouldn’t be too hard, especially considering you’re probably the one paying the little dudes whatever money they get as an allowance.

I’m telling you dudes, I couldn’t be more excited. Superman is one of those characters who, when done right, can raise goosebumps of awesome all over your arms. Sure he’s got all those powers, but I think his most important one is the ability to inspire us to greatness. We all want to be Superman, even the Iron Giant.Man-of-Steel-One-Sheet-Image-610x732

Despite my initial misgivings (I mean, it’s Zack Snyder directing so I figure fully a third of its length is going to be in slow motion), I’m really getting excited about this one. It looks like we’re finally going to get the Superman movie we’ve so desperately wanted for so long. It looks like Superman is actually going to punch someone. We’ve waited a long time for that one. And inspiration. Inspiration and punching. Combined.

Here. Check this out. It’s the trailer for the movie. If this doesn’t get you up off the couch, yelling in a little dude’s ear about getting you a ticket from the electronics department at Walmart, then, dude, you are dead.

Purchase tickets to the exclusive pre-screening of Man of Steel [PG-13], to be shown on June 13th, 2013 at 7 PM, by going to your local Walmart! Tickets can be purchased in the Electronics Department and include an exclusive digital comic book written by David S. Goyer, author of Man of Steel, as well as an exclusive opportunity to pre-order an HD digital download or Blu-Ray copy of the film.

  • Go to your local Walmart
  • Visit the electronics department
  • Purchase your EXCLUSIVE Man of Steel prescreening tickets (available in 2D or 3D)
  • Take your family to the theater location noted on your ticket and watch the EXCLUSIVE 7 p.m. premiere of Man of Steel on June 13th!
