Subject: SPOILER of this past Sunday's bowling/ stupidest quote EVER by Rob
OK, when Ken Simard had the first ten, then missed and shot 289. Rob
Stone actually said later on that it might've been best that Simard
DIDN'T bowl the 300, cause then your concentration is shot and he'd
prolly have had troubles in the title match.

Is he for real? You're better off NOT bowling the 300? LOL. I'm
sure he was almost just as rattled by the 289 and maybe even more so,
kicking himself for and reliving the 11th shot that was just a tad
wide. I don't think bowling the 300 was gonna "hurt". Dumbest quote
in a long time, LOL.

I think it's all about the CURRENT game and CURRENT shot. Not that KS
missed intentionally, but to think that his best outcome was anything
OTHER than to bowl 300 is ludicrous. He could've made history, an
EXTRA $10k, and STILL had just as good a chance to win the title. I
really think that being *that close* would've rattled me more than
success.

Actually, there was merit in Rob's statement. All one has to do is
recall when Norm Duke belted out is 300 against WRW in the first Earl
Anthony tournament, then "crashed" in the title match that followed
(he did win, but with a "measley" 230-ish score as I vaguely
recall ;) ). If Ken Simard HAD belted the 300, he might've "crashed"
worse against Malott.

Then again, In A Parallel Universe, Simard would've got his 300 AND
crushed Malott with another 300.... (Smirk!)

That's the "beauty" of being an "armchair" PBA analyst: you know
you're "always right" compared to the guys who are actually doing the
job in REAL TV TIME and GETTING PAID to do so.... (smile!)

Considering the source.............I wouldn't expect anything less
stupid...........If the PBA is truly interested in restoring it's
reputation, they need to get better announcers. Randy Peterson is great.
Sometimes you can hear him sigh and roll his eyes when dealing with
Stone........LOL
