I wonder if stories as heart warming as this is really help or hurt bowling.  I am happy for the kid but what about the old man who has been bowling for 50 years and never came close to a 300 game?  Or the non bowler who thinks it is easy and not a real sport because some jack ass bowled one backwards or a blind person bowled one. 

Nothing against the story but does it help or hurt bowling?

I think it gives bowling some sort of exposure that it wouldn't have had otherwise....and just a feel good story.  But I do see your point....where the general public may think bowling has become too easy.

reminds me of a guy in my thursday league....although his HC is different.  he's a lefty bowler with a missing pinky and ring finger.........

he bowls with the index and middle finger in the ball, and doesn't miss a beat....

Just for the record no backwards 300 game has been bowled yet, and no one who is completely blind has bowled a perfect game.
