I am hereby starting a betting pool on the exact number of minutes between the retail release of this accessory and the first cracked (human or animal) skull it causes.

I've got ten bucks on 344 minutes.

Your seeming faith in humanity astounds me. I say five minutes. Tops. Someone's going to brain their cat/dog as it walks by.

I give it a week at most before the first YouTube video of a ball smashing through a Wii, a 50-inch HDTV, the window behind it, and a 3-year-old girl on a trycicle outside the house, all in the same fumble.

Damn man, you almost made me choke on my soda when I read that.

Most dangerous? Laws no. [http://www.escapistmagazine.com/forums/read/7.114155#2077240] Most potential for property destruction? Heck yes.

I mean, people have enough accidents with NORMAL bowling balls. I should know: I've seen plenty of them. Bowling balls have a strange and mystical field that attracts the worst of luck, and when you combine that power with a device that tends to get thrown into valuable stuff, I have no doubt that the results will be catastrophic.

Why are we providing add-ons that make it more 'realistic'? Why don't people just go play REAL bowling?

The odd part is I can't help but make a comparison to Gurren Lagann, only less epic. These people are certainly kicking reason to the curb anyway, and possibly going beyond the impossible in coming up with Wii accessories more dangerous than the last. I mean, we've had darts, dumbells, and now bowling balls. Next? Something for the hardcore audience, of course. The Wii Morning Star.

A normal day for a five year old:

"Hey guys, watch me bowl on my wii, WITH A REAL BOWLING BALL!"
. . .
"HIDE THE T.V.! HIDE THE T.V.!"

I laughed so hard.
Me too :D

Wii is for little kids and drunk people. Neither of which have a great track record for bowling without destruction.

As we have learned: Putting a Strap on something doesen't fix the problem. People will still refuse to use it, and TV's everywhere will hate them for it.

Two things, if i may, which i will anyway if i mayn't...
First, if you still don't know how to control a wii remote in such a simple game like bowling or tennis, stick to whatever it is you're good at. Seriously.
Two, CTA made a foolish move with this one...i'm going to do research and try to see what other products they sell...yes, just to poke fun at them.

What're the odds that CTA is a child company of Sony or Panasonic or whoever else that makes HDTVs?
