Bittersweet Day

I am sure I will not be able to bowl anymore. Today I gave my last arsenal to a friend and I gave my bag to a new bowler I am coaching. I gave my old shoes to the trash... I also gave my drilling equipment to my best friend.

Re: Bittersweet Day

Sorry to hear that Lou. It's hard giving up something that you love doing. But, your health and well being come first. Coaching young bowlers will keep you close to the sport.
Maybe you can go fishing and catch some more of them Large Mouths. Whatever you do, I hope you're well and happy doing it.

Definite Bummer, but can understand. Know that one day in the future, I too will have to "hang it up" as well. Love the fact that you're still teaching those who want to advance in the sport of bowling & not going "cold turkey". That's special in itself. Life goes on. Embrace it. Enjoy!

That sucks Revz, truly it does. Coaching will be a great way to stay connected, and now you can focus even more on coaching to become the best you can.

Ever thought about writing Lou? You have a wealth of knowledge and experiences you could share. Could be helpful to a lot of people.

But, just so you know, you do contribute mightily to the bowling community.

You sir, as the others, have class, wisdom and undisputed knowledge of our game. Amateur, novice & advance bowlers alike rely on individuals like yourself and the others, and it sometimes goes without saying, but we appreciate you and what you guys have to offer. @ least I do. So "Thank You Guys" for being there and sharing with the bowling community as a whole.

Re: Bittersweet Day

The great thing about bowling is that she will be here waiting with open arms when you are ready to return. I remember when I could throw a fast ball all day, drink beer all night, then do it all over the next day.

Now it hurts to bowl 3 games. Getting old sucks!

jimjames, It's an honor to be mentioned with the other three members. And I totally agree on the other three. I'd add your name along with others such as meno, rev0, and so many others. This site is a wealth of knowledge of the sport of bowling.

Re: Bittersweet Day

Dear Lou:

I'm certainly sorry to hear of your forced on-the-lanes retirement, and I can certainly identify with that, because I had to abandon a lengthy bowling career about a decade ago due to multiple foot surgeries.

Sincere best wishes for all your future endeavors, and kind personal regards.

Thanks again, my friends. I'm doing fine. I can show up late and I can visit with friends all across the house...not just in the vicinity of my pair. I get to coach a bit too.
