Life is full of Gutter Balls
This is just wrong.
Bowling Alleys with bumpers so that kids no longer have to endure the painful humiliation of gutter balls? Please.
This is just another example of coddling children and succumbing to our spoiled culture of immediate gratification. I don't mean to sound cranky (or worse, like Andy Rooney) but how does this "everybody's a winner" nonsense prepare kids for life? What happened to perseverence? To practice? To learning to overcome failure?
I say, take a lesson instead from Barack Obama. His pathetic gutter balls probably cost him Pennsylvania in the Democratic Primary.
He bounced back. Your kids can too.
