Why does the USBC and the PBA have to make bowling a novelty? Bowling outside, bowling in a football stadium, bowling in a baseball stadium, bowling in an arena, bowling at Six Flags, bowling with gold pins, bowling in different houses using the same ugly @ss backdrops, bowling with plastic balls, bowling trick shots, bowling 5 different formats in the same season, bowling on the official PBA oil patterns, bowling every different way EXCEPT for the way the game has been bowled for decades.
It's BS. The ball companies and sponsors should be furious. I'm sure Ebonite plastic balls will be flying off the shelves now the Kelly won the Women's Open with one. If I were the women, I would be furious, too. They were just made to look stupid on prime time TV. You average 230 or 240 all week and in the finals you can't break 150.
It's pathetic what they are doing to the game.
