Two-Toned Shoes On: Bowlers Go for World Record

National Bowling Day is Saturday, September 5th

The fantastic shoes, the sparkly hued balls, the "in your face" body twirl you do as you turn to face your crowd following a strike.

Bowling remains something we all like to do, whether we do it for sport, nostalgia, or simply to heave heavy round objects toward glow-in-the-dark pins while music blares late into a weekend night. So when National Bowling Day rolls around -- yep, we said rolls, rolls like a three-holed, 14-pound beauty with plenty of backspin -- we take notice.

The day is Saturday, September 5th, and at bowling centers across the land people have their eyes on the pins, plus one common goal: break the world record for most games bowled in a single day. There is also a Bowl.com coupon (check to make sure your local alley is participating in the coupon deal) and other good bowling-ish to-dos to spare.

Will we dress up as our favorite bowling alley denizen, the Dude? Or will we gussy up a la "Grease 2" and do a bit of shimmying around the lanes? Until they ask us to stop.
