Video: Josh Blanchard’s Scary and Perhaps Funny Bowling Mishap

| by Alex Groberman

Bowling doesn’t get much mainstream sports coverage these days, and for good reason.

It’s not a sport – it’s a way to keep little kids occupied at a birthday party.

That being said, some folks do consider it a sport and apparently devote a whole bunch of time to perfecting the way they play it. With that in mind, here is professional bowler Josh Blanchard at a recent World Championship qualifier in Las Vegas:

By all accounts Blanchard was okay after the fall, but this video did stir up an interesting debate on Pardon The Interruption (PTI) today.

Why did nobody laugh at what happened? Was it because it looked as though Blanchard was seriously hurt for the first few seconds? Was it because bowling isn’t considered a real sport and, thus, can’t have funny sports blooper moments? Was it because nobody was watching what happened because, again, it’s bowling? All of the above? None of the above?

Weigh in below – is the above video more scary or funny?
