Proverb

That's the way the ball bounces

Submitter comment:

While Mr. DuCharme, a fellow student in a Folklore course at the University of Detroit, was giving his presentation on a comparative study of ballad variation, he used the phrase: "That's the way the cookie crumbles." I was reminded that when I was about his age, we used to say "That's the way the ball bounces." But it still means the same thing!
