    Blind woman bowls 244

    [size=14pt]Legally Blind Woman, Bowls a 244...[/size]
    [size=14pt]and get this -- SHE'S 94 YEARS OLD!
    [/size]

    Esther Medley of Centralia is legally blind, but when she bowls she can glimpse a bit of the floor to line up with the lane.

    Medley, 94, can't see straight ahead, so her 86-year-old husband Ralph tells her which pins are left after her first ball.

    That's how Medley recently bowled a score of 244, which included eight strikes, at Fairway Lanes in Centralia. It was the second-highest score of the year for her league.

    The Medleys have been bowling in the senior league since 1979.

    I bet you she couldn't out bowl Roy E. Munson. She's alright, I put my money on Roy. LOL
    That is a good story. When I am 94. I probably won't even find the bowling alley.
    I started out with nothing, and I still have most of it!!

    Wow, good for her! That is the reason that bowling is taught in PE classes. It's a lifelong sporting activity.

    I get the most pissed off looks from people with my VKG 4 LFE Wisconsin license plate, and I LOVE IT!!

    That's amazing,
    I might have broken 100 once.
    I'll take up bowling again in another 67 years

    Looks like a question for BBQ.

    I bowled a 428 once when I was drunk.

    But then I realized I was bowling on 5 different lanes at one time.

    Good times...........good times.

    And when you knocked over 9 pins it was considered a strike? lol
