When I stopped 25 years ago, I was in the 280 range most games. It took me a long time to get there.

Bowling is a sport.
People don't seem to get the precision involved in sports like bowling, golf, darts, archery, curling, marksmanship.

Just the right spin and speed to resolve a split. Starting at just the right drop point at your end of the alley.  Each split has it's own characteristics.

Just the right spin and speed to get a strike in the first place.

Then take into account your own physical tendancies. I used to pull to the left when I'd get tired....which required adjustments in technique late in the game.

All that kind of stuff.
So it isnt just "rolling" a ball?

Just like pitching isn't just "throwing" a ball.

Obviously you haven’t seen the Red Sox bullpen this year.  :(

hahah I love it when Boston can't throw the ball. Or hit the ball. Or catch the ball.
