This is a simple graph indicating the relationship between bowling performance and beer consumption. You will notice that after some amount of beer, the average bowler’s game
is actually better than he thinks it is. This is the bowling sweet spot (or the “zone”), usually indicated by a very relaxed pre-to-light-buzzed state, streaks of 3 or 4 strikes, and easily picked up spares. Unfortunately at this stage it is very easy, with just one or two additional beers, to move into the next stage, identified by gutter balls, loud cheering, frequent air balls, and breaking into verses of “We are the Champions”.
