Subject: Wow and I thought I was a begger.
Why are the announcers saying Walter ray hasn't missed the pocket? are they
calling the pocket the front right of the head pin instead of the area
between the 1 and 3? I haven't seen him hit the pocket and every ball he
keeps looking amazed that it wasn't a strike. He deserved 2 splits not one.
Is it just me or does anyone see the same thing?

Yep I noticed it. Randy does that a lot. Really don't know what he is
thinking. To a new or average bowler they will walk around thinking "I
am leaving the 4 pin in the pocket and getting a bad break". Those of
us that know better will laugh when we hear them. Come on Randy stop
this now. Maybe bring back Marshal , he seemed to try to educate
people about bowling not dumb us down.

Or how about auditioning for the role YOURSELF? make sure you present all
your "qualifications" on why You're So Much Better than Randy and How You
Can Do The Job Better to the appropriate ESPN personnel.

If you're lucky you MIGHT just get the gig for next year!

Couldn't be me , I have a face for radio. Thing is we all know Randy
knows the game better than to say "Walter Ray hasn't missed the
pocket". That is all I am saying.

I think they dumb it down considerably for television... which IMHO is the
exact opposite way to go... they should be showing exactly how complicated
and complex and taxing the sport is - especially at that level...

its like, every week they tell you which pattern is been played, and he
seems to ALWAYS say the same thing... this week we played pattern (insert
name or letter) which was (insert difficulty raiting) and so you could
tackle this from various parts of the lane, so you have (insert name of one
player on the show) playing it from deep while other players like (name
another bowler on the show) playing straighter...

Jamie, did you know you're supposed to put "spoiler" in the subject line of
any posts referring to tournaments that people haven't watched yet? Then you
don't spoil the enjoyment of viewing the action for people who are going to
watch it later. I am taping the show right now and don't expect to watch the
tape until tonight.....if I have time. I prefer to not know WRW III is not
bowling well until I see it. While it's not the end of the world, it is an
etiquette in ASB that you may not have been aware of.
