I've been posting a lot of photos of myself lately. On one hand, it looks pretty egotistical. On the other, I'm pretty awesome.
Anyway, I dragged some Google coworkers bowling yesterday. Most of them came willingly to the Palo Alto Bowl with me. I really enjoyed myself. I reminded me of late nights bowling at Evergreen Lanes in Nekoosa during high school.
Between the seven of us, I won two of the three games. Of course, my highest game was a 118. We weren't exactly pros.
I'm thinking it'll become a near-weekly event for me. Maybe I'll join a league. Wouldn't a Google team be the coolest thing ever? Four-person teams means we could get bowling shirts: red, yellow, green, and blue.
America rules. Wherever you go, there's a bowling alley that looks like it was built (and decorated) in 1976.
Exercise for the reader: what would be a good name for a Google bowling team?
For the Google bowling team, the best I can come up with is Pin Outs or Spare Cycles. Perhaps you could do something related to map-reduce?
My vote is currently with "Perpetually Beta" or "Beta Bowlers."
incidentally, googling "bowling googlers" brings you here, more or less. hehe, that's an idea...you could always form a blog called "bowling googlers" and call yourself:
Google 'bowling googlers.'
and make it a subtle declaration.
