I can't believe it....but I fell tonight while bowling. I fell on my left hand....stretching my thumb. Hopefully, I'll be able to play piano without too much pain.

I have to agree on both counts. If it hurts, don't push it. Bowling seems to be a very dangerous sport for you. Plus, I'm guessing that frame (and maybe the whole game) wasn't all that impressive anyway. Maybe not your thing. Maybe try pool... smile

Had a vision of you flying through the air, attached to and following the bowl . . .what was it doing in the air, you might wonder . . . best wishes Michael!

I agree. No more bowling! Whenever the urge to bowl overwhelms you, just watch The Big Lebowski instead.

I guess I should stick to piano and pool! I've either broken or sprained it pretty bad....not sure which!
