    The way

    I would like to know the meaning of " The way I bowled "

    Shetlar began volunteering for Meals on Wheels after retiring from the U.S. Postal Service in 1990. For a while, he said, he bowled one day during the week and delivered meals on the other four. He said he eventually gave up the bowling league.
    “The way I bowled, I figured I might as well be delivering five days a week,” he said.

    He was bowling very badly, so he might as well stop bowling altogether.

    He meant that he wasn't very good at bowling and wasn't improving his ability by bowling once a week.

    Red face Re: The way

    To answer direct to your question, I'd say 'the way I bowled' means 'by how I bowled'. No offence, though. I have found it in my dictionary.
