Buy Bowling Gear Online

Updated on March 23, 2012

Bowling? Yes, Bowling.

At the risk of being declared substandard, here are some excellent items to order for your favorite bowler or bowling fan. The economy is tough: order your bowling gear online to save big money. You simply cannot find this stuff at the bowling superstore in the mall.

Bowling Ball Sports Pans

Ensuring a bowling motif at your next super bowl party obligates proper centerpieces. These amazing baking pans mirror the shape of your favorite bowling ball. Mix up a Jello salad or a cheese ball or a Jello Salad stuffed with a cheese ball.

Bowlers love cherry Jello or even orange Jello. They will feel even less self-conscious around the real athletes when they feast on bowling ball-shaped snacks.

Traditional cake shapes are boring and have no connection to sports, except perhaps wearing one on your head in the infield at a stupid NASCAR race.

Precious Moments Growing In Grace Age 10

Every moment spent engaged in bowling activities is precious. Precious Moments figurines Immortalize these precious moments into adorable statuary that fits in your china cabinet where the china should be.

This precious little girl appears to be dropping a ball on her foot, but she seems so precociously precious that we know it will never happen. During this precious moment we would be horrified and also curious to learn why she's standing over the pins. On the other hand, the statue would have to be 3 feet long if it included the actual bowling lane. It wouldn't fit in the china cabinet.

Bowling Throw - 70 x 54 Blanket

Bowling alleys are cavernous constructions replete with rental shoes and drafts. You can spray the shoes, but you'll need a blanket to ward off the chill when the Air Conditioning kicks on. Nothing hampers your delivery more than a neck cramp or a sudden split down the back of your bowling pants, both of which can be mitigated through strategic application of this utilitarian yet attractive fabric.

It has pins on it. No other sport, except yard bowling, uses pins.

Bowling pin clock

Every bowler knows what time it is. Half-price nachos happy-hour should not be missed. These innovative pins include timekeeping devices embedded in appropriate locations. You can keep one on your bedside table in anticipation of a home invasion by Earl Anthony.

A radio is also included. You can listen to sports-talk radio because they are always discussing bowling on those shows. Order a black pin and a white pin, sure to match any decor where bowling-shaped objects contribute to the theme.

Bowling Ball Drill Bits

Be the hero of your bowling team by being prepared for any contingency. Should a teammate show up for an important match with an undrilled ball, you can come to the rescue.

Tuck these handy drill bits into your bowling duffel bag. They are carbide-tipped with drilling capability for most composite materials. Imagine how disappointed you will be if the holes in your bowling ball need just a tiny bit of chamfering but you don't have the proper tools at hand.

Bowling Green State University Falcons Garden Gnome

Bowling Green State University Falcons Garden Gnome

When night falls, these garden gnomes organize bowling tournaments in the back yard. As far as you know. You're sleeping, they are mowing down the hydrangeas to build lanes. They absolutely hate those annoying motion-sensitive security lights.

This little guy wants to be on your team. Prop him up in the flower garden. His aura will guard you from 7-10 splits in the 10th frame. We all need a little help now and then.

Bowling Watches

Bowlers wear a watch on each wrist so they are not thrown off balance when they run down the lane and roll the ball. It should be the same watch. Order this watch in sets of 2, allowing you to gift it to your favorite professional bowlers when you see them working weekends at Starbucks.

The leather band will not snag your polyester pants when you swing your arm. It boasts a Japanese quartz movement because they bowl a lot in Japan.


Bowling Lollipops

Stick-mounted foodstuffs are crucial to bowling success. When you achieve the optimal balance of moisture, powder, and nail polish on your bowling hand, you certainly don't want to disrupt your Karma by picking up a greasy nacho.

These lollipops will provide you with basic bowling nutrients while staying away from your actual hands. No self-respecting bowler joins a semi-pro traveling league without laying in supplies of bowling-shaped candy on paper sticks.

      @drbj: improper chamfers lead to blisters. Be prepared.

      Thank you, nicomp, for this much-needed list of necessary bowling supplies. Now I know why I could never attain a high bowling score. I did not possess the required accoutrements. I lacked a chamfer tool.
