I actually watched this and loved being able to fast-forward through the commentary so I wouldn't have to listen to Randy.  Some good matches though!

Bowling has turned into an athletic event rather than a skill event.  I asked my team mate who has a PBA card and bowls in the PBA50 if he thought they should ban two handed bowling and he said yes it gives too much of an advantage to its users.

What? Bowlers as athletes? A bowling tournament as an athletic event. Oh, the horror. It's only what bowlers have wanted to be treated like for 100 years.

Anyone over 40 who wants to ban 2 handed bowling is just sour grapes because they can't do it and they don't have the talent to beat them. EJ Tackett is doing just fine against them. So are plenty of other one handed bowlers.

What next?  You want to put in the Olympics?  It would have to be in the Summer Olympics.  Then they would change the scoring and even put in who knows what other kind of stupid rules.
Would there be h\c for older one handed bowlers?

No. Bowling doesn't deserve to be in the Olympics until amateurs stop out scoring the professionals. Plus, if they use that goofy scoring system, no one will watch anyway.

The local youth bowling teams on a high school level are completely unsupported by the school because it's not a high draw sport like foot ball or basketball, which I think is totally wrong.

Probably not, it came close one time years ago.

A group went to the Olympic committee made a presentation to them, the committee said it was in if they greased the wheels a little bit.

They said we had too much integrity to do that, So everyone said goodbye.

No bowling in the Olympics.
