Bowling a Laurier strike

This is me throwing a “Brooklyn” strike for a school project. Known as a “Jersey” strike in New York, this is when a bowler lands the ball into the pocket opposite his throwing hand. For right-handed bowlers, this would be the 1-3 pocket while for lefties it would be 1-2. The term supposedly originates when New York bowlers would throw their ball too far left, as if they “crossed the river into Jersey”. In my case, I had gone down the street to Laurier.
