Why couldn't it have been the basketball owners who locked out their players?

Finally, a mention of bowling in SI (SCORECARD, Nov. 22). Liz Johnson's qualifying for the round of 64 at the Uniroyal Tire Classic in the previously all-male Professional Bowlers Association tour was certainly worth the ink. But with the reinvention of the men's tour and the collapse of the women's tour, I find it appalling that you've published so little about bowling. Until folks realize that bowling is not just a beer-guzzling, cigarette-smoking night out, the attendance and interest will continue to fade. You can certainly help by covering it once in a while. Bowling is a sport.
