Demolition Man...

International Balls have nothing to do with it...because if we go over there and bowl we can drill up something to match up and if they come here they can do the same. Thier equipment isnt better by any means they just have stuff that either wasnt released here or just heavy rolling stuff we wouldn't even want.

Regardless, it is a matter of athletism. The bowling ball technology is making it so that you don't have to be the greatest anymore. It doesn't truely gauge the ability of the athelete, granted it takes a great deal of skill to use that tech but still its matter of the bowling balls doing a majority of the work instead of the bowler.


Brandon, whoopy frickin doo. Who cares about the World Championship (aside from the people in it or people who have seats for it)? The Olympics are a much grander scale and should turn out a better performances and atheletes, key word being should. Look at the Redeem Team crap that is all over Sportscenter. They lost the World Championship in 06, when they were favored to win it. And now they are stomping on teams left and right in the Olympics. I'm only bringing that up to point out Olympics brings out something in people to perform better, and that you have to account for varibility.

This thread explains it better than I do. In particular Coach Jim's post on it. Unfortunately it gets side tracked by hand ball, ehich by the way the handball I was thinking of and played is completely different than the handball that I watched in the Olympics. Whoopsy.
