JW123, let me ask you a quick question, did you feel your teammates were to blame for losses during the season at any point? Did you ever say to yourself, "They just lost us the game"?

If not then why do you feel that your teammates are looking at you any differently than you are looking at them? If you take any one game and look at each persons score 99% of the time it is an equal blame all the way across the team when a team loses. That 1% is when someone shoots 300, otherwise each bowler left something on the table.

I can be quoted on here repeating the same two quotes quite often, so I will do it again for you since you might have missed them:

"Treat yourself like you are your doubles partner"

What that means is that after your partner throws a bad shot do you jump all over their case, do you criticize or yell? Do you act like they are terrible? If not then why are you doing it to yourself?

"Some times we have to be smart enough to get out of our own way"

This one means that your brain knows how to bowl, it sends signals to your body on the movements that you have engrained. Those signals are always the same as long as your brain runs on instincts and past experience. When you start to think and you try to do something, your brain is no longer sending the same signals, it is sending mixed signals and it causes havoc to your muscles. They get out of whack and you end up with a shot that is not the same. Just go up there and flow through the motions, you don't have to tell yourself to take a step with each foot to walk right, why is bowling any different?
