My "almost" 4 year old daughter just issued a beat down on me in Wii Bowling! I scored 160 and she scored 175. SERIOUSLY!!!!

Maybe you are more lacking that she is advanced? I happen to be the worse bowler in the universe...so I know.

Maybe Santa...but still, a shock to my ego. In real life, I'm happy to break a 100. On Wii, I can usually bowl between 150 and 200.

Willow loves the Wii and has become pretty good at both Bowling and Wakeboarding. She normally bowls between 75 and 110, but tonight it was like STRIKE, STRIKE, STRIKE, SPARE, SPARE, STRIKE...I just couldn't believe it. She even picked up a split towards the end.

(shakes head in disbelief)

However...

Somtimes, I get lucky. Here's me bowling at World Magic this past March. Bizzaro was holding the camera and I bowled a strike thru his legs...

It was awesome...well, except for where my face ended up after I let go of the ball...

My friend had a Wii, the bowling was an interesting thing...sometimes neither one of us would break 112, once or twice one of us broke 170, but that was a fluke. We used Seinfeld Miis that I designed. It was always embarrassing when Jerry lost to Newman...especially on tennis!

Yeah...bowling on Wii just ain't my thing...I'm ok at it, but I'm the pimp ninja jedi at Tiger Woods. I'm a great golfer in real life anyway (not like I have the time for it), but bowling...not so much. Still to be whooped by my little girl...groan...I won't hear the end of it... Smile

Be immature about it, take her to a real bowling alley and, well...you can fill in the rest. Smile

A local casino had a Wii give away and they had a bowling contest. I did it and got a pretty good score but was beat by a guy who played it really well. They get down to the championship with two guys who bowl on their Wii systems at home all the time (gee, what a stupid way to pick a winner, have a contest that people who already have the thing will win). One guy leans back in a chair with his feet on another chair and rather than doing a bowling action he tosses it like he is casting with a spinning rod, real men know what I mean. So the lean back guy wins at around 280 to 260, some really high scores. I asked the winner about his odd style and he said he plays in bed and that he can't do it unless he is laying down and just flipping that controller thingy! He said if he was in bed he'd get 300 pretty regularly. I thought it was cool.

The time was when I could beat my son on it (he was 10 when he got the Wii), but that was a very short time. The bad thing was that not that he started to beat me comprehensively and regularly (although he did), but that he then started to tutor me. He developed techniques of how to stand / angle to hold the controller / amount of follow through with a kind of whipping action etc that pushed his scores up and up. He just tried things and went with what worked best, whereas I think I was trying to play a version of 'real' bowling. As he didn't have that knowledge to unlearn, he just got on and worked out what was best for playing it on the Wii. A proud and humiliating moment!

My wife and I designed Miis for each other. The resemblance is uncanny. The first time her Mii popped up, my (at the time) 16 month old pointed and said "Mommy!"

He's only old enough now to shake the controller for Wii Music (which he does really like), but I imagine he'll soon be ready for bowling and other games. Then we'll see if he can beat me at swordplay on Wii Resort.
