I was rooting for Scroggins. I'm not a big fan of him, but I love
when the guy "climbs" the stepladder and wins, like Mike Machuga.
It's a letdown to see the guy win 2 (or 3 depending on format) games,
and then the 1 seed just comes out and destroys them. It wasn't a
blow-out, but I expected Mike S to win because he looked as good as he
has an a loooonnnng time. That damn seven pin KILLS him. He actually
seems to be better when he hits a tad light. The seven pin's came on
what looked to be his most solid hits.

Patrick Allen's shot was MUCH more devastating - when he hit the
pocket. He looked good, just that the dryness of the lanes caught him
off guard.

PB3 is just a great bowler and likeable guy. Not sad to see him win
at all, but I like when the bottom guy wins.

The ladies' match was good. It seems like besides Michelle Feldman,
Doreen Ballard is the only woman who really puts something on the
ball. The other girls just seem to throw 12 shots that are light to
the pocket every time. Or to mix it in they miss the pocket
altogether a few times, and I'm surprised that professional bowlers of
either gender do that. Must be the pressure of TV.

Yeah, if the pins weren't spotted right, it would affect EVERYBODY.
Unless PB3 threw somebody a Benjamin, LOL.
One ten pin here and there is a bad break. Scroggy seems to get 2 a
game at least. But he looked better during the opening 'strings' of
strikes in the first 2 matches. The most locked in I've ever seen
him. I always feel that maybe he's coming in too sideways and/or just
missing a pinch of 'something'. Patrick Allen hit dead on the head
pin a few times, but with the pocket hits he DID have, there was NO
chance of the seven. Just had that extra 'something'.

When I see a good bowler like Scroggy leaving sevens like that, I
wonder whether he has gotten a pinch too firm with his speed. That or
the pins might not be perfectly spotted. Of course, PB3 had to bowl on
the same lanes. Parker went through a stretch when he was younger
where he simply couldn't get the titles. He was on the tube every
week, but someone else would blow him away in the final match.
As for the ladies, Carolyn Dorin-Ballard is their equivalent of Walter
Ray; she is a very accurate bowler who repeats her shot well.
