Good breaks, Bad Breaks, reality or perception?

Post by kajmk » May 15th, 2018, 5:09 pm

On the surface and at a glance, things occur that appear to be good or bad luck in the sport of bowling.
Please weigh in on this.
They are not always what they appear.

A baseball pitcher throws a pitch that is out of the strike zone, the batter swings and misses.
Good luck or bad?
Line drives that find a glove, fungos that fall for base hits.

Weather, wind, precipitation, nuances of artificial turf, sun in the eyes, etc.
It ain't what you don't know that gets you into trouble. It's what you know for sure that just ain't so

There should be a rule of war saying you have to see someone up close and get to know 'em before it's ok to shoot 'em

Bad luck? Good shots that don't get rewarded via pins getting knocked over then standing up or sliding across and not falling.

Good luck? Throwing a terrible shot and still getting a strike.

Both happen.
