  1. ♥️𝗧𝗿𝗲𝗻𝗱𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗮𝗱𝘂𝗹𝘁 𝗽𝗼𝗿𝗻 𝘃𝗶𝗱𝗲𝗼𝘀 𝗼𝗻𝗹𝘆❤️ Alles sehr schön. Aber zuerst zusammen die Nummern 10 und 1. Eine emprutt.ONLINE Brünette und eine andere Blondine. Es wäre unfairw, wenn ich 4 wählen würde

  2. There are very few proprietors out there who actually love the sport and see both sides. You need to make money but it costs more to make more.

  3. In my opinion, this was the best run Junior Gold out of the last 4 years. Everything went so smooth. We were u12 boys and U15 girls.

  4. 16:30 mark….Political Correctness vs. Moral Correctness?? WTF is that jackwagon smoking? Is that person REALLY gonna try and drag Politics and his Personal Views into a sport?? Broski needs to LEARN to stay is his own damn lane!! And STOP Trying to push his viewpoints onto others. Opinions are like assholes…everyone has one…and most of them stink. Keep it to yourself. /off soapbox

  6. Kind of wish bowling centers could improve as a whole.

    To many bowling alleys without enough competition – many are last standing. I appreciate the owners keeping their doors open – just wish economics of it would justify investing into the alleys and more centers competing for walk ins – banks willing to fund at less risk level etc.

  7. Bowling is not dying, it died, decades ago.
    During the Golden Era of Bowling, the 60’s, the average person knew the names of the great bowlers of that time.
    Carter, Weber, etc. were names that evoked awe and respect.
    Men and women showed up in their best suits and dresses to watch these giants bowl.
    Bowlers of that era made more money than Baseball, Football and Basketball players.
    Ned Day was on the cover of Wheaties.
    At that time the amount of league bowlers nationwide was approximately 7 million . 7 Million out of a total national population of 194 million!
    Over 12,000 bowling alleys spanned the nation.
    Approximately only 2 million league bowlers nationwide out of total national population of 334 million…
    The number of bowling alleys has declined to approximately 4,000.
    The average person has zero idea who the best bowlers are.
    Pro Bowlers make far less today then their forerunners did and nowhere near the money paid to the Pro athletes of other sports.
    What happened? Why the decline? There are many theories and no doubt many factors that can be pointed to.
    Some say the introduction of modern tech took away the challenge of the game and allowed players that could never hope to compete at a high level to do so.
    In the 1968-69 season only 905 perfect games were recorded nation wide out of 7 million league bowlers.
    Today, approximately 50,000+ per year from 28% less bowlers!
    Did everyone suddenly become as good as a pro of the past?
    Is Bowling dead? In a way it did die. That Golden Era is gone. History. But I think the efforts of Bowlero are a positive thing and can resurrect the game to a degree.
    I still enjoy bowling even if the sport as a whole has been relegated to a niche activity.

  8. I don’t know if bowling itself is dead but I stop doing leagues years ago. I only go and bowl a few games for exercise every couple of weeks if that but I won’t return to leagues or sanctioned bowling of any kind. Just lost the zeal for the game. Certainly not the games’ fault but I think I got out of the game what I needed at one time and now it is what it is. ✌

  9. I kind of wish bowlers would have rivalries, talk trash, make entrances. maybe just have more personality. Not sure just throwing it out there.

  10. The USBC at the local level sucks. I got a mini-trash can for a 700, that has to worth at least a quarter, and a 50 cent towel for a 290. At least ABC gave a patch, not an ink pen..

  11. I love bowling since I was 9 years ago now I am 36 bowling is not dieing sport but needs more ideas keep it amazing but bowling is not dieing sport

  12. To me it feels like its making a big comeback. A lot of young exciting new talent out there with a big social media presence helping it grow. Its heading in a good direction.

  13. It would be better if they’d show televised events every Sunday and make the prize money bigger and do King of the Hill events, etc. like they did in 90s / early 2000s. Why did they stop? Make it feel like arena atmosphere like back then.

  14. The little ones and teens have been very good at coming out house was full last night so it’s good here in Bethlehem PA

  15. Bowling is becoming too expensive. $5+ per game.. if you can buy per game any more. Now they charge by the hour.

  16. One of the Big Benefits of USBC League Sanctioning (and thus bowlers needing a membership card) is Bonding of the Prize Fund.
