Why does it take the passing of a fellow bowler (a love one) to make us, The Atlanta bowlers scratch, handicap, beginning, youth or what have you; for us to come together as a family.
It has long been said by bowlers in other States, that the bowlers in Atlanta hate on each other. Deny this if you wish, but there is more truth than fiction to this statement. The male bowlers have a stronger bond than the women bowlers. It is said that the women scratch bowlers separate themself from the beginning and middle average bowlers, how true.
Regardless of what your average is this should not be the deciding factor on who you do or do not associate yourself with. We are all bowlers that is what should matter.
I personally challenge each of you to continue this unity that Jermaine passing has brought about and not let it end with Jermaine's burial.
