Best League of Your Own

Southshore Lanes

Want the pins to know you’re thinking Good vs. Evil when it comes to
picking up a 7-10 split? At Alameda’s Southshore Lanes, a Transformer
bowling ball representing the duality of existence is certain to make a
trip down the lane much more frightening for any pin you’ve happened to
leave behind. The local bowling emporium is sponsoring a series of bold
new leagues to bring crowds indoors this summer. The Transformer league
offers Megatron or Optimus Prime bowling balls for those who want their
ten frames to be less Zoroastrian. And for kids who want to take the
bowling experience home with them, a Bratz league will entice fans to
get a blacklight bowling pin in “vivid colors” (to um, keep your
bowling shoes company?). There are traditional league options as well
as specialized ones, including a Bowl for the Cure group. Maybe Optimus
Prime can help after all.
