How did bowling get in here? Anyways, Pro bowlers are athletes. This notion that you have to play other sports well to be a athlete, would eliminate every sport. Place kickers are such fine athletes right? I would love to see Shaq turn on a fastball, Edgar go full court.
4 stands for football/bb/basketball/hockey.
The pressure in the PBA is unlike guaranteed sports (4). As a pro bowler, you have to drive to each tournament, unlike getting free transportation in the big (4). You have a entry fee ($300) i believe, for each tournament, unlike the big (4). MLB gives meal $, and a base salary of $200,000. In the PBA, if you make $30,000 for the year, you are in the red (about $40,000 needed to break even). There's pressure in all sports, but the elimination pressure in bowling, the idea you lost $1,200 that week, that bills are due, and no guaranteed $ coming in, is more telling imo. Tom Candiotti was on the PBA last week. He said the pressure in bowling was much tougher.
