PBA Strike Derby
« on: July 16, 2021, 10:51:08 AM »
I watched this on TV(recorded, not live) and the thought that kept returning to my head is how this contest shows why bowling isn't an Olympic sport.


I know, I know, this will get some of us pissy and bent. So be it.

These guys are "the-best-in-the-world" at their sport, but can't perform at the top of their game for 120 seconds without becoming gassed? Come on, they weren't running, swimming, jumping, kicking or punching. The best I can recall is one set were a bowler(forget who) threw 22 shots in 120 seconds.
[size=78%]


Of course, part of the problem was the pinsetters could not keep up, but the bowlers didn't appear to be able to throw 30 in two minutes anyway.


The proceeding is an opinion of the author. You have a right to your own opinion if you have one, including having an opinion that the author is a clueless, no talent, dumb-ass hack.   ;D [/size]

I would wager that we will see Pickleball in the Olympics before Bowling. Probably not Cornhole though.

Is there someone on this thread that isn't a bowler??

I am living proof that the number of BR posts has nothing to do with bowling skill level.  In fact, as my posts increase, my skill level decreases.

I've been on the forum for a good 10 years. I changed my ID which is why my numbers are low.

Just let me know after you have tried throwing as many strikes as you can in 2 minutes and see how tired you do or don't get.

Be there and done that. My ass was totally dragging of course and I was only able to manage 18.

However, I don't bowl for a paycheck, you know the whole PBA thing.

I would also be extremely slow at the end of a 100 meter sprint, but then again, I don't do that for a living either.

I can however type like a MF'er for two minutes straight without having any effect on me what-so-ever.   ::) ;D
