Pro Bowling: Athletes or just an Elite learned skill?

PBA Bowling on ESPN! The coverage is excellent!


Do you consider these guys athletes?

Bowling being a sport...or guys in it being athletes I get people saying "yes" or "no" to either but if your answers for bowling are different than golf then that is where people get it wrong.

Pro bowlers are very similar to pro golfers in skill. Very similar skill sets.

They have had to tone it down more and more over the years. Not sure it is growing in popularity but having said that it was probably not a bad investment.

The actual art of hitting a golf shot is up for debate of it just being a learned skill or being athletic enough to make a shot.

If walking for five miles over a couple hours is considered good shape?

Doesnt really explain why young asian girls and old men have comparable scores.

It is a talent and skill but not athletic. Now if there was a time limit to were they had to sprint, yes.. Actually I might watch that.

Nascar would be a sport if they had to get out themselves, change their tires and refuel.

I actually bowled competitively in high school. It's a learned ability. Not anyone can be good but it's not an athlete status kind of thing.

It's only gay if you are admiring male horse muscles.

Having a 212 average myself, I still consider it a game, just like golf. To qualify for the TV games, these guys have to bowl a lot of games during the week. Lot of pressure on your fingers, wrists, shoulder and even a bit on the legs. One night of 3 games and warm up you can feel the heat coming off my fingers for a few hours, it's pretty crazy.

I've been bowling finger tip for longer than I'd like to admit, lol. I actually had both my fingers bend backwards a couple of years ago, that was some real pain. Took months before I could throw a ball normal.
