The wife's workplace held their Christmas party at a nearby bowling alley on Saturday night. I haven't been bowling for years but I tried it recently on the Nintendo Wii where I found my carefully aimed throws were all curling to the left and only knocking down the pin(s) on the end. A fault with my Wii controller – or so I thought until I tried it for real on Saturday...
