And I think … Continue reading Two-Hand Transition Part 1

It’s funny that years ago when 16 pound was the majority, it was thought to be … Continue reading 14 vs 15 Pound…What’s the Story

I don’t want to get into a rant of the state of bowling at large here. Rather, I’d like to express some dismay with the current PBA tournament structure. Basically, I’m not buying this as the future of the PBA. I think it’s totally unfair that the majority of the tournaments for a given year … Continue reading Vent on the State of the PBA
