I used to bowl semi-professionally - on the birthday party circuit - when my children were younger. It seemed they were always being invited to bowling birthday parties when they were in elementary school. From middle school on up, they were invited to the cooler version, "Cosmic Bowling," which adds another layer of entertainment in the form of flashing disco lights and blasting music videos. In the adult world, this is known as "Migraine Bowling." Frequently at these events, I'd end up reserving a lane a few down from the birthday party and bowl with the other parents who had drop-off and pick-up duty.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- At the end of each day, employees at Gladstone Bowl re-shelve the bowling shoes that patrons have heaped on the front counter. Lately, it has taken them less time to finish the chore. The reason: There are fewer shoes to shelve. People have been stealing them from the alley at an alarming rate, manager Vicki Davis said. "It seems like every week we lose at least a dozen pairs of shoes," Davis said. "I think people are wearing them outdoors to make a fashion statement."

I've recently started to go bowling. Does it have any significant health benefits, and can I count it toward my weekly exercise quota? While it won't whip you into shape like a kickboxing class might, bowling does have its fitness perks. "It becomes a greater [health] benefit if you are bowling alone and aren't sitting for long periods of time," says Bob Maki, a spokesman for USA Bowling Coaching. Like anything else, you get out of it what you put in. So, rather than chugging a beer for every strike, treat it like exercise.

There is no evidence that God ever set foot on the maple wood lanes of the historic, soon-to-be-closed Southway Bowling Center in Federal Hill. But faith transcended doubt yesterday morning at SS. Stephen and James' Evangelical Lutheran Church, where impassioned testimonials of his pin-side presence were taken as gospel in a service that paid homage to the 61-year-old duckpin landmark. "We know in our heart and in our memories that God's grace was present with us each time we bowled," church member Mel Tansill told the crowd of about 100 worshipers.

ONE THING about women that puzzles men -- we could go on and on here, but let's stay focused for a moment -- is: Why do women wear such uncomfortable shoes?Specifically, why do they continue to teeter about in painful high heels when modern science and technology have done so much to eliminate discomfort in our society (the continuing presence of Regis Philbin being an obvious exception)?Call us out to lunch on this issue, but men don't understand how anyone can be comfortable in high heel shoes.
