Anybody watching these where the US lost 3 out of 4 finals and wondering what were the losses down to?

It's on Flobowling, the outfit that took over xtraframe. Problem with Flobowling is that every time you go to their website to watch an archived event they show a headline with who won and spoil it.

The World has caught up with the United States in the sport of tenpin bowling- the direct result of marketing bowling, in this country, as a recreational game while in other countries it is considered a challenging sport. I predicted this on Lenny Nicholson's Phantom Radio internet show well over 10 years ago. Sad, Sad song.

I wouldn’t say sad, just like the World Cup in baseball it could be the wake up call we need. I’d say the team choice was interesting for USA, all power besides Anderson and Barnes for today’s standard. Think a little more seasoned team or mix might have had a more impressive outcome.

It was disappointing to see the PBA stars losing in 3 out of 4 finals, especially in the manner they did. One typical example would be Barnes whiffing one shot to the right and then missing the resulting 1-2-4-8 spare badly to the left of the headpin. And while all this was happening, a headline on FloBowling says: "Podcast: Blanchard says mental game separates winners from losers."

Most bowling centers in Ireland are promoted as recreational bowling centers. There are fewer than 50 bowling centers in the country with very few promoting the competitive aspect of the sport. While Chris Sloan finished 3rd - the team of 6 men from Ireland finished 23rd of the 47 teams entered

I believe this post indicates my hypothesis is correct. In the given social-cultural context, the greater emphasis placed on the sport will produce better Players. The social-cultural context which places emphasis on the recreational aspect of the game will not. The American culture has been running from the sport and to the recreational aspect of the business, for over 46 years, resulting in the American declined relative to the rest of the world.
