All you can say is wow. I was rooting hard for Page. But I'd like to
see Allen give Big Nasty a run for player of the year points. It's
been a long time since I saw a 4. And to hit the 2-4 pocket and not
get 6 or 7?? He got distracted by the shot clock for sure; I
thought he had it well in hand!! Damn.

Yeah. Even WITH that huuuuuge choke at the end, it took a 267 to beat
Page. Bottom line is score as much as possible, LOL. If 1 guy starts
out with a turkey and the other with 3 spares or a miss, it can
QUICKLY get away from the non-striking bowler. But it almost always
turns where the guy who has the turkey suddenly gets a split or two
spares and the other guy has now strung 4 together. You rarely see a
game that's over before the 8th or 9th frame. I'm sure Allen wasn't
so happy about how he won, but he won with a 267 and a TON of
strikes. If the washout had come in the 1st frame would it not have
been such a big deal? Probly. At the end of the day the highest
score wins no matter how pretty it was :-)

When he defeated WRW, I honestly felt the 8-10 WRW left was a flat-ass
looking shot compared to the bombs Allen was throwing. I feel Allen
is bowling better now than WRW, and in no way felt he got lucky. It
was a break, and bowling is often decided by breaks.

Yes, it is too bad that a fluke won both tournaments. That is a lesson to
all of us to not give up. Keep making your best shot so you can be in
position to take advantage of a break. We get bad luck, so it's only fair
that we get good luck too. Be ready for it.
