Okay, I know this would only seem like a relevant topic if the situation were reversed, i.e., if my bowling jacked up my bowing, but last night I had an epiphany, and an epiphany for any reason is cause to write a long spew of nonsense.
Last night, my wife and I bowled with my office team, after not having picked up a bowling ball for 15 yrs; so obviously we expected to stink up the joint. She bowled at about 85% of what she had bowled 15yrs ago; however, last night I bowled under 100 for the first time since picking up a ball at the age of 12; I bowled at about 40% of my normal score!!!
So, at the outset of the night, I'm obviously frustrated & pissed off, but then after about 10 min.s, I collect myself, put myself in a [non-drug-induced] tranquil & focused place and am able to focus on each of the components of my "toss", only to discover that my right [bowing] wrist is as relaxed and flexible as a sleeping kitten's paw [there was a better analogy, having to do with "whiskey ...", that I will refrain from using].
In every sport I've ever played, a rigid wrist, one that makes your hand one piece with your forearm, is critical to performance. Now, after working for 4 mo.s on limbering my right wrist, and diligently developing some degree of fluidity and flexibility, and savoring the feel of a fluid wrist movement,,, I discover that it has screwed with my game [bowling really isn't my game, after all, I haven't played it for 15yrs, it just sounds more dramatic to say "my game"].
So near the end of my 3rd game, I was able to get back on track,,,, but by then it was too late to pull out a decent score.
Like I said, nothing useful to this story, just a realization that several new techniques that I have been drilling myself on to become ingrained, are actually becoming ingrained.
The only time I played bowling I was a kid and my father let me throw a ball for fun, all the thingies went down and I was so proud I refused to try again, prefering to bask in my 10 years old glory of the moment
