Agreed, though both are much more interesting as a spectator sport than bowling or golf.

After golf, I would not call bowling much of a "sport" ... but at least one can drink beer and have a BLT while doing it ... umm, bacon ....

As to Golf, as a spectator sport I would agree; but there's a whole lot more action to watch in bowling at any given time than there is baseball, or (American) football.
Golf.

Is.

Pasture.

Pool.

I wonder if you could bowl a K3 on the cricket pitch. I don't think you'd get up to the maximum speed of some bowlers - 100mph/160kph - but it would be fun to watch.

Hi Voice,
to which sport are we referring here?
I'm confused.

When people talk sports I am generally confused too. I will stick to my nerdly pursuits, hiking, travel, and photography.

No. You would get no flight, loop, swing, spin, bounce, turn or cut.
The hociR might be tough and survive hitting the ground, but there are too many hard edges that would damage the pitch: the pitch would not survive.

And the only wing you would get is when you are still holding the strap. That would be kind of medieval.

Yep, Tim, but I loved the medieval connection.

Are you trying to turn this thread into a serious discussion? There's a lot of other sad places to do that.

Okay, that's really bizarre. Engagement is when the fetus, typically a few weeks before delivery, descends into the pelvis. hociR is getting really weird. (unless, and it's highly unlikely, I misunderstood something. )
