Thank you all for your responses and remarks. I wouldn't call myself a sore loser. Maybe if I didn't bowl 140 pins over my average, then yea, I wold be a crybaby, but my gripe here is how this situation was handled and the managers were very dismissive towards the group of bowlers who experienced this and stayed behind to the very end. I displayed RAW emotion and was pretty upset and when one of the Managers (Israel) decides its funny to laugh at a bowler who just felt the need to vent about an unfair disadvantage in bowling, then there is a problem. Bowling is a game of rhythm and when you have it, you can be very sharp. When you have it, and constantly have to wait to utilize it, it can be very discerning. I see nothing in the Rule of the Tournament about having a Fair and Honest shot. Leads me to believe that this is being swept under the rug since I have NOT heard anything else. Who knows, maybe when I bowl tomorrow, this District Manager will show up with flowers begging for forgiveness. I am forever disgraced by AMF and after my league is done, It will be the last time I bowl. Screw it.


i will gladly take your equipment. i need a few new bowlings balls as I am just in my infancy stages of my bowling career. But being a very competitive person that plays several sports at a near pro level I will tell you no matter what happens you CANNOT give up. It does not matter if the center catches on fire and blows away in a dust storm the minute you give up the rest of the world wins. the only person you are hurting is yourself. now am i saying what happened was not wrong? no i am not. but look at it like this. even with your troubles u still got your chance to bowl. and u bowled well above your average. maybe the delays helped u in between shots! but let me give u an example from another sport that could be considered unfair. lets say the pga tour is playing the U.S. Open at pebble beach. Tiger woods gets a tee time in the morning and plays his entire round in sunshine and very low wind and finishes at 1pm. phil mickleson has a tee time at 1pm and at hole #5 it starts raining, the winds pick up, and phil's playing partner plays extraordinarily slow. why does tiger get such an advantage at such an important event? this is considered unfair. but friend let me say this. its luck of the draw. its always a factor. it does not matter how good you are at some point in time u will need to get lucky. thats where the saying better lucky than good comes into play. but if u could send me your equipment ill pay for the shipping wink
