To be successful in the sport of bowling one must understand how to make adjustments, stay the course and work hard along with tremendous dedication. The results are a rewarding progression! That progress is not a quick road. However the quick road traveled is not often the most rewarding. It’s 2019 and bowling popularity has dwindled. However the qualities that the sport has to offer has increased in many ways. We live in a time in which critical thinking has become a skill that is not nurtured and constantly built. The influence of television, social media, and electronic gaming has worn down our minds ability to think critically and make adjustments based on our specific situations in front of us. Bowling embodies all of these critical situations to strengthen our minds. We living in a time with great division. So many different beliefs and ideologies. Often in modern times that disagreement in ideologies and beliefs that cause people to not be able to be in the same room let alone speak. Certainly having fun together is completely out of the question. Bowling is a sport that provides that adhesion to our society. Having all different types of people on a bowling lane breaks down the barriers and gives a commonality that is transcending!! Another perceived ill in our society is lack of opportunity. Included in that is lack of educational opportunity, and opportunities to explore and travel the world to find ultimate career goals. Yes, Bowling can also fill this perceived lack of opportunity we have in our society. Let’s look at these things closer as we bring Bowling into the present which I see a future resurgence!!
