I’ve been waiting a long time for this. In February 2002 I went bowling and scored my personal best, 201.
Last night, I finally beat my record and scored 222. Yay!
(You can just about make out the 222 in the top right corner of the photo. I was a bit excited, and the photo was taken with my phone, that’s why it’s blurry.)
There’s too many things pointing to some higher power wanting this to happen for me to ignore the following:
1. My previous record was made when I was wearing a Liverpool FC shirt, my new record came exactly one week after the Champions League victory.
2. I scored six strikes in a row – a double turkey. Where was I exactly one week ago? Turkey!
3. In the first game we played, I was playing as badly as LFC were in the first half against AC Milan. This new personal best came in the second game, and, I kid you not, just before I got the first of those six strikes, I mentioned to Derick that at this exact time last week, Steven Gerrard had just scored LFC’s first goal.
