Sounds to me like Mr. Brennan is either a frustrated bowler or a gentleman who refuses to recognize accomplishments of other people. I happen to be one of the "All-Stars." I have been bowling in these "all-star" leagues for 40 years. Never once considered myself a prima donna. Cindy and Doris Coburn, Jack Jurek, Tom Baker, and Dave Guindon are some of the finest people I know. Most of the 84 bowlers in our league downplay any 300s and 800s they get. No individual walks around thinking of themselves as an "all-star." I get the feeling you would not know a "sport condition" from the wall of China. Maybe you should pull a magic act of your own and disappear. I know we wouldn't miss you.
