Strikes, spares, and sexual innuendoes: Intramural bowling

Foster Kids were set to take on Dragonslayers Who Dream Big, Thursday, April 7, but most of the Dragonslayers weren’t there. This gave the Foster Kids an automatic win. Tony Foster, an avid bowler, gave his teammates pointers between games. “Bowling at Wood Center is challenging because the lanes are really dry and short,” Foster said, referring to the oil pattern on the lanes. “Dry and short” means that the oil only goes about halfway down the lane, whereas other lanes’ oil stretches the whole length of the lane. After throwing a gutter ball, Foster apologized. “He [captain Justin Renner] made a sexual joke,” Foster said. “It threw me off. You know, you’d think we’d bowl better because we all work here, but we kinda suck.”
