Re: Might want to get ready for long term storage of your balls.

Stay safe, stay well.
Happy coping!

Re: Bowling withdrawal or an opportunity to improve?

I see it as opportunity to recover. My left knee has been hurting a little on and off and this off time is good for it I think. It is a good time to watch videos and learn things though. hard to keep fit when the gyms are closed. Brother krava, I'm sure it you want to get something done, you will f...

Re: off balance hop

Thoughts ... As for your size, as you age, that may become a bigger challenge to you. Years ago a friend and co-worker invited me to walk/jog the steps a the ASU basketball arena, he is 6'1 or so, easily nearr 350, very big boned, carried it well.

Re: off balance hop

Sorry about your physical challenge from the accident. Nonetheless, you've not let it stop you, that's a tribute to your strong spirit. I knew a one armed kid in a h.s. I went too. Our basketball coach said that he'd love to have him on the team, but was not allowed to do so. I can tell you that kid...

Re: Arm Injury

Here's hoping for a complete recovery. I had injured and reinjured my right hand a long time ago. The league voted to let me finish the season left handed. I painted a white stripe down the back and wore it as my bowling shirt! I recently became aware of this website and posted the link and a few vi...

Re: Re-entering the sport. Could use some help...

About viewing videos on YouTube. Some people may not know that YouTube videos can be slowed down or sped up. If you slow down an already slowed down video, that might be helpful.
