I expected as much from someone who grew up outside of New England.

Well, just because you're a total wuss doesn't mean you should blame it on the game.

I never played candlepin.

I am, however, a complete and utter monster at 10 pin bowling.  Give me 3 or 4 goes to get warmed up and I can start taking out pins like there is no tomorrow.

one time I was twacked on speed and ate ten drops of good liquid LSD.

then I went bowling.

then, after a couple crappy throws in the first 2 frames, I threw NOTHING but strikes. 8 or 9 in a row, I can't remember exactly, but I couldn't miss even when I tried. I threw a ball underhand between my legs while facing the wrong way and it was a strike. Finished with a score of 253.

And, of course, everybody in the place had stopped everything they were doing to watch me. And, of course, I was completely unaware of this until I threw the last ball, then turned around to ask the guy next to me to take a look at the scorecard screen just so I had a witness and EVERYBODY was staring at me and broke out cheering. I fucking freaked, and ran out the door with my drink still in hand and the bowling shoes still on my feet.

Luckily, I knew the guy who was working that night, and he was kind enough to save not only my shoes, but the official scorecard from my amazing round.

Candlepin is ten pin with more balls and wood.

In my five-year of New England residency, I have yet to play candlepin/duckpin. However, it sounds like bocce ball to me.

I've never partaken of duckpin, though I've watched it on TV.  (they televise it in Canada)

Candlepin actually is a good Erisian sport.  I've seen all kinds of wacky action with candlepins that you don't get with ten pin.  I mean, I remember this one time I rolled the ball, it made some weird jump in the end and ended up in the adjacent lane.  I still have no idea how that happened.

21 years of NE residency and I still haven't played candlepin. Agreed: sounds like bocce.

I'm not the only New England fucktard who has no use for candlepins.
