BOWLING IS A GAME, NOT A SPORT

BOWLING IS A GAME, NOT A SPORT


I love bowling.  I have been bowling since I was eight years old.  I bonded with my dad through bowling.  We went to the Village Lanes in Manhasset, Long Island, every Sunday after church.  I currently bowl in a league every Tuesday.  Our team’s name is Friggina.

Friggina (short for Friggin A) may not be a particularly classy name; none of the league’s team names are classy.  “The Kingpins” was taken as was “Strikers,” “The Splits,” and “Gutter Ballers.” I love bowling, but bowling is not a sport.  It is a game.  At least our team name has more class than last year’s champions, “Haywood Jablowme.” Bowling is not a classy game.

Bowling is a game, not a sport.  Any event where you can drink and smoke while you are on the bench is a game not a sport.  Any group whose professional tournaments are sponsored by “Motel 6,” “Denny’s,” “Lumber Liquidators,” or “Odor Eaters” is a game not a sport. 

The winner of this year’s Professional Bowlers Association “Odor Eaters’ National Championship” won a plexi-glass odor eater foot-insert trophy and $5000.  Bowling is a game, not a sport.

Half of the bowlers in our league are over 50 years old.  The old timers are all very competitive with bowlers half their age.  They can be competitive because………bowling is a game, not a sport.     

I love watching the PBA tour bowlers on TV.  When they get a strike these 5’4” “athletes” pump their fist and let out a primal yell like they just sacked the quarterback to win the Super Bowl. 
Ooh I’m scared!!

 DUDE!!  It’s bowling.  It is a game, not a sport.

I love bowling!  It is a great game (it is not a sport.)
