Progressing with silliness

The Fosbury Flop sounds like a failure. The first time Fosbury flopped over the high jump bar, it had to look silly.

Now the old way looks even sillier to us.

Jason Belmonte has won, and is still winning, ten-pin bowling competitions using a two-handed approach. The old guard keeps the old style. The young ones are doing this old silly thing more and more.

Some progress depends on the reasonably silly man.
