IF YOU'RE BOWLING AND YOU PUT TOGETHER A STRING OF STRIKES
IT'S BAD LUCK TO ADD THE SCORE OF THE BOWLER. YOU SHOULD
ONLY PUT THE X'S FOR THE STRIKES HE SCORES AND DON'T
ADD THE NUMBER SCORE UNTIL HE FINISHES HIS STRING.
IF YOU ADD THE SCORE BEFORE, HE WILL BREAK THE STRING
AND IT WILL BE YOUR FAULT.

Submitter comment: THIS IS AN OLD CUSTOM IN BOWLING.

Data entry tech comment: TOO BAD IF HE'S USING A MACHINE WITH AUTOMATIC SCORING!

Where learned: HARPER WOODS ; MICHIGAN, ASSUMED
