1. Get in the mood. Drink some cheap beer and watch "The Big Lebowski".
Don't worry if you don't get it -- I'm sure the humor isn't terribly
universal -- but it will put you into the right mindset. And personally, I
rank it somewhere in the top 5 funniest movies of all time.

2. Visit the US Midwest, if at all possible. There's something in the air
that increases bowling prowess.

3. Drink more cheap beer throughout the process. This seems to help some
people bowl better. I find that it simply dulls the pain of losing.

4. Don't take it seriously, whatever you do. Some people will try to tell
you that bowling is a sport; I find it to be an entertaining pastime that
one can, after a time, become skilled at. If you relax and enjoy the
process, you'll probably do okay.

I know this isn't the advice you're looking for -- but it's the best I can
offer. Good luck! :)
