Idle bowling thoughts...•••You can't count the numberof disagreements with judges andother officials during theOlympics. That is simply becausemany are judgment calls byexperts in their sports who havea lot of leeway.No such problems in bowling99 percent of the time. The basicrules cover personal equipmentand all areas involving the play-ing equipment. And they areaccepted around the world.•••"I'd rather be lucky thangood." is a phrase you may haveheard many times. You may haveuttered it yourself. But can'tmean it, or shouldn't believe it.Luck is fine in its place, in theproper perspective.But you can't practice or learnall about luck and therefore youcan't perfect it. That makes luck a fitting and fleeting intangible.Don't get me wrong. Luck canand does cause a high unde-served game and it may be pres-ent for an entire night orthroughout a tournament. Luck,in the right place, can produce anincredible game or night or per-formance. And one luckyshot in the right place mightdetermine a title.It has often been noted that allthe good breaks and bad breakseven out over the long run,though there are few bowlerswho feel they will ever get even.But don't ever confuse luck withcertain areas of skill such as anoverworking hook ball or a dan-gerous angle akin to the guttershot or an almost impossibleangle.All the high numbers, averages,money earnings, titles and supercredentials were not erected bybricks of luck. Stars of any erawould rather be good than luckyand are so much the better for it.So will you.•••William Edward Staub of New Jersey died recently at age96, and he enjoyed a long list of activities such as building andflying radio controlled air-planes, water skiing, golf andnear the top was bowling and hewas an enthusiastic participantand bowling center owner.He also headed a number of companies and excelled in theexercise and aerobics field.Staub received a lifetimeachievement award from Healthand Fitness magazine.He was considered the mostinfluential figure in the develop-ment and manufacturing of thehome treadmill.•••The most important statisticto any pro bowler is earningsper tournament. The bottomline is how much money youspend to win prize money. Everysport is a challenge and in pro-fessional sports such as bowling,golf, track, rodeo, tennis, horse-shoe pitching and many othersthat pay prizes to contestantsbut little in the way of guaran-teed fees and salaries are thereal gut grabbers. Your living ison the line and it is very difficultto play for pay and not be paidto play.•••The late Bruce Pluckhahn,ace writer and public relationsgenius for bowling once pointedout that if you look at atten-dance figures for sports theyoften seem staggering. But if you count league and tourna-ment bowlers who roll 30 weeksor more and the thousands of tournament participants theguaranteed attendance figuresfor bowlers could be 100 million.•••Pro bowlers really aren't allthat superstitious, but someclaim it is a scientific fact thatthey roll much better whilewearing certain colored uni-forms.
