Coach par excellence Mike Jasnau was front and center sitting next to
Linda Barnes last week.

I'm pulling for Wes this week. He's been on a tear this year. Looks
like his game has matured and he matches up to his new RotoGrip
equipment extremely well.

With PA, Jones and O'Neil on today it should be a good one.

I'd like to see Wendy back in the winners circle as well.

Good to see Roth on TV again even if it was as a spectator.

The lanes are dressed prior to the practice session. The players
breakdown the shot during practice and then the telecast (TV) matches
begin. The lanes are **not** re-dressed between the practice session
and the final matches. The result is that lane management has become a
very important part of the game. Same is true during match play
rounds. There is significant debate as to if this is good or bad for
the game but it is what it is.

WRW is often credited with being the first guy to really figure out
lane management as it is being practiced on tour. Ever wonder why he
can throw the red ball up five so often in match play? It's not that
hard when you have opportunity to make a hole in the oil pattern. More
specifically, it would be hard for hacks like us but not for players
with top pro skills and equipment gurus helping them out.

Unfortunately, I knew all too well. ^_^

Shot 724 my first week, when it was fresh, averaged some stupid
numbers until they quit giving us fresh oil.
Such is life, eh? lol

I remember bowling league on Sunday nights, after all the open play.
Some of the best 190s I've ever thrown. ;)

Oh, they DO INDEED put a fresh "coat" of oil for the telecasetd
finals. Unfortunately, that one "coat" of oil has to last for up to
FIVE (5) matches (either 3 bracket matches or 3-4 "step-ladder"
matches and the Women's final).

Depending on the pattern, what ball(s) each bowler uses, and how each
bowler plays it, determines how fast the oil breaks down or whatnot.

Consider: by the time the WOMEN'S FINAL happens, the oil is broken-
down Similar To what happens when you have two 4-palyer-per-team house
leagues bowling back-to-back. IOW, the FOLLOWING LEAGUE has to deal
with conditions not too unlike what one would encounter coming in to
the local center to practice after a full day's worth of Open Bowl
after only one morning oiling has occurred. IOW, BRUTAL!

The players have become very adept at using the practice time to move
the oil around, or taking it off the lane althogether. Walter Ray was
doing this 4-5 years ago (ever wonder why he can *always* play red
ball up 5?) but now everyone is doing it. Result is guys can play the
condition in ways that you should not be able to because they have
altered the condition. This is all legal and is just a part of the
current game under the current rules.

He is stalking Randy Pedersen :-)

Justin Hromek was in the audience a couple weeks ago. He's a good
dude. Still throws the ball really nice.

I know -- I've been trying to post about the tournaments, too, but it seems
that either nobody watches any more or there's nobody left here [where'd
everybody go??]. One thing I've noticed is that for the second week in a
row there's been a wide variation in the lines people used. 1st arrow, 2nd
arrow, 4th arrow... Is that something the PBA did to their lane
conditioning this season [I don't recall any such variations in the past]
or the latest crop of balls or what?

Certainly, congrats to WRW... he is truly amazing. And it is hard to grasp
that he really is now (one of) the 'elder statesmen' of the tour.

I wish they'd identify the people in the crowd. I see Tom Clarke and
Carmen Salvino almost every week but they never identify them [which
actually makes me wonder: WHY is Carmen traveling all around the country.
surely he must have better things to do than just watch the kids bowl].
And I don't know about the sponsoring machinations, but congrats to Tom to
have Lumber Liquidators sign on as a blanket sponsor -- denny's still
advertises, so I guess he just got a better deal from LL. It was also fun
to catch a "goRVing" patch on WRW's shirt -- I had forgotten about that
sponsor and the ad series with WRW interviews.

Wouldn't it be embarrassing if in the upcoming "house shot" tournament they
ended up averaging only 220 or something.. :o)

Haven't seen bowling on TV in a while. But, I did throw 31 strikes in my
series Monday night. Bad arrangement of the other shots between all those
strikes resulted in 778. :-)

You have to remember that many here in ASB taped the broadcast and
probably haven't watched it yet. :)

Otherwise, this PBA TV season is looking pretty good! I'm sorry that
last Sunday was the only day we'll see the Seniors, but at least the
Ladies will be back this Sunday!
