I know its been a while...
This topic can have a broad range of responses. I was thinking last night after bowling, there are certain statements that you just do not want to hear while you are bowling or at the bowling alley.
I don't want to dictate the way this post goes so I am just going to give a couple of examples to let everyone get the gist of what I am saying. Then I want to hear from you.
After you have shot your tail off on pace for a 760 series because of some things you have been practicing and someone says "they got the shot wide open tonight!"
After months of planning a tournament you get to the center the day of and the manager tells you "we have to put a birthday party on the lanes next to your tournament" :)
You show up to practice and they tell you "we don't have any lanes available"
These are statements you just don't want to hear. Share with us some of yours, don't be shy I am just touching the surface with mine. This is RealTalk...
I hate when a 200+ bowler shoots a 135 and says "This house is a hard house or it's messed up." Or "This house favors left hand or left side bowling bowlers (Me)." :-)
Now where is he/she it's his/her turn to bowl?
When you shoot a good score or win a tournament and the first thing I hear is "oh it's wide" open on the left side." Whether you are left or right handed, you still have to EXECUTE!
You show up for league and hear that the lane machine is broken. "They didn't run the lanes today."
