So first game in leagues tonight, I had a decent game going. Nothing spectacular but on pace for average....  then in the 9th frame I Had a terrible first ball and ended up leaving the 4, 6, 7, 9, 10. Sucks I know. Cost me average and cost the team the game.

So I’m like, just fire it out there and hope you can knock a few pins around. It’ll at least take some frustration out. So I do. Stand left, fire right. Hits the 6-10 perfectly, 6 pins falls across the lane. Somehow ricochets off the 7 and takes out the 4.....  only problem was it came in front of the 9 pin..... 

Any one else have similar or other odd things happen to them?

Mine is carry frustration.  Twice in one season, I left a stone 8 pin on a 10 bagger.  I seem to leave more than my share of 8 pins.  Has to be a reason other than bad luck.

I have only turned my back on a strike ball once.  I had seen others do it and it looked cool, so I decided to do it when I threw a ball that I knew was going to strike.  I finally threw that ball, it came off my hand perfectly and was right on line when I turned my back as it reached 40'.  I smugly walked back to the bowler's area to sit down when one of my teammates said "You left an 8 - 10".  I didn't believe him, but when I turned around, there it was.  I said to myself "Never again".  And I never have.  --  JohnP

Try taking the 6-9 only off the rack, on 5 in a row.

Yep! This guy!!!

Better yet, leave a washout. 1-2-4-6-10. Throw at it, thinking you're going to pick it up like a 3-10... and go through the 1-6 gap cleanly, missing the entire lot.

Yep, again! This guy!!  :-[ :o ???

Funny you had that happen.  I missed it the bottom, the ball flattened out and hit the 6 in the face.  The 9 must have been off spot because I only took out the 6.  Was crazy.  I also  one took the 7-10 out of the Greek Church(that was bitter sweet)

Had the front nine once in a tournament, hit my ankle next shot and it went in the gutter. Also took the 9-10 out of a full rack, twice. Just a couple wtf just happened moments for me.
