I find it amazing how people point and laugh at Blanchard's fall from this past Sunday, yet NO ONE paid attention to Jason Belmonte's 300. I guess it just goes to show that most people probably still consider Poker more of a sport than bowling. *vomits*

Josh is a great bowler. He is a favorite of mine. It is not funny if a pro bowler falls.Injury can happen. 
Your right. For someone to laugh at a fall like that would be wrong. I have done the same thing. When my foot hit the wax on the lane I went straight up and landed straight back on my head. Not good. 
I used to bowl with Josh when I was alot younger. He is an amazing bowler. No one is perfect. What happened to him wasn't funny at all.

Good on you Wolfman! You are saying what many think. Josh Blanchard is a great player and a nice guy. (I crossed with him at the TAT last year.) I really feel for him just like any bowler will. What these other fools are saying is just dross. We saw the real Belmo on that telecast, the guy who bowled great, but did not hesitate to offer help to a fellow player when he may have needed it. I saw a guy actively helping out his competitor. THAT is the spirit of bowling.

@matt921 Dude... you're preaching to the choir. Read my comments again, look up what sarcasm means before you reply to me. I know it's a sport. I never said it wasn't. When I said, yeah bowling isn't a sport, it's rocket science, I meant that it was more than just a sport. Look before you leap.
it also shows how much of a class act ESPN is by labeling the clip on their page as "Epic Bowling Fail"

@Wolfman12395 i agree with you I know josh coulda got seriously hurt. I have fell many times an that is one of my biggest fears when I bowl amateur tournaments sticking falling or not beable to release. That lane all broadcast was giving issues what people dont realize is he didnt bowl like that all week to make the top 4. He had a bad day an being on tv maybe have put pressure on him. Im sorry hes now known for falling on tv.
