Pro Bowling: Athletes or just an Elite learned skill?

PBA Bowling on ESPN! The coverage is excellent!


Do you consider these guys athletes?

Wanna see something beautiful, find and watch the first episode of Luck from HBO. Nick Nolte's Walter has a great horse, and the tells the rider to stretch her out a like in practice.

They used tracking shots over the horse's shoulder and film stock, and it's a masterpiece.

Bowlers are no more athletes than chess players. I once had a teenager tell me that chess was a sport because he was "exercising" his brain.

It seems that some people categorize an activity that requires some skill as a sport just to help out their own ego. Both are games. Same as golf.

Any activity is going burn calories. That doesn't make you an "athlete."

Bowling is something someone does when their spouse/significant other tells them to get off the couch and go do something. Same as mowing the yard.

I think they are due to the usage of the full body and focus on timing.

Those are all athletic things. I would also consider dart throwers athletes. JMO, I can certainly see the argument.

CP has some Bowling ass ballers. Wasn't it Pink Floyd that was basically a club pro level bowler?

Yup, and just because it isn't a sport, doesn't mean that you can't also be athletic or that being athletic doesn't give you an advantage in the game.

The word "athlete" comes from the Greek (and Latin via Greek) for "contest" or "competing for prizes".

In that sense, professional bowlers are absolutely athletes.

Yup, and most people don't throw the ball right. Keeping your hand behind the ball and coming up through it is a lot more work than just tossing a ball out there, and it has a huge effect on consistent pin action.

As a reminder - I think I told you - but I have a very unorthodox tennis game - I run around my forehand in order to unleash my one-handed backhand. I hit more winners from my backhand side.

Odd huh? I haven't played in about 3 years
