    As many of you know I am a quad amputee. Due to complications from pneumonia I lost my hands and my legs almost a year ago today. It was my goal to once again Bowl and today I accomplished that. I didn't use any handicapped ramps or other devices to accommodate me other than my artificial legs. I have included the following two videos the first one is my very first ball and the last one is after 3 games of bowling. I'm very sore but I accomplished it. I've said it before and I'll say it again you guys are like family and wanted to share it with you. Feel free to pass it on.

    It is nice to take a break from the serious subjects of reps and message board elections to see a light hearted feel good story.

    Keep up the good work bob

    you sir are an inspiration to anybody who feels that they can't accomplish their goals...or those who complain about their lives but take for granted the fact that some people have it much worse...congratulations on your accomplishment and i hope you have many more as a result of your hard work and determination..

    Nah, fuck it, brag away! 13 perfect games is impressive to me. Lot of time to add to that.

    That's awesome Bob!
    Congrats!
    I don't bowl, but my first job out of HS was resurfacing bowling alleys. That was hard work. But those things were perfectly flat when we were done.
