Some new lingo

We here at the Glassball studios delight in bringing you more and more Glassbll-speak, so that when you play with your friends, you don't get shown up by talking about the net, the ceiling or the ash tray (bottles, decorations, glass respectively). Reasonably recent additions to the vocab list are 'fumble' – to mess up the serve (although you do actually have to hit the ball… if you miss it altogether, you don't even deserve a name) and 'turkey' – fumbling three shots in a row. Taken partially from bowling (where it's a good thing) and the world of cinema/vegetarianism (where it's a bad thing). In fact, we had our first turkey tonight, and it wasn't even deliberate – Chris, a visiting left-hander, is the proud first-turkeyer.
