Hey! A bowling thread

Hmm...............

Favorites:

1. Norm Duke----A class act that can play any line on any condition. The true definition of a bowler.

2. Robert Smith---Always nice to see the big power game and even with all that power, he's still pretty accurate. Very hard to do.

3. Pete Weber----Brings excitement and trash talk to the game. Instead of the same old bland stuff, you get true emotion from him. Fun to watch.

4. Chris Johnson---I grew up bowling against him and I want to see him continue his success out there. Plus we are similar bowlers, so I can "read" the lanes based on what his ball is doing and it gives me some insight as to what the condition is really like.

The 5th spot is tough.

I like Voss, but I believe he needs to move forward into the new day and age. When the older bowler's shot works, he does well, but I believe him to still be stuck in the old age.

I also like Mika Koivuniemi but he literally lofts the ball in the air until it reaches the arrows. His emotion is great, but I don't like his game.

D. J. Archer gets a mention since he's another local boy. My father actually taught him quite a bit about bowling, so I'd like to see success for him as well.

I would say Parker gets the 5th spot. Always a professional. Gives back to the sport and community. Has a solid game. Just a good guy all around.

As to who I dislike:

1. Walter Ray---Plays the exact same line every time he bowls regardless of the oil pattern. That's not bowling. Adjustments are necessary. He just drills another ball to play "his" shot instead of having the ability to play the shot on the lanes. Overrated.

2. David Traber----He's a jerk. No other way to put it. I've been around him enough to say that. Also, the tour gives 30 minutes of warm up prior to the telecast, so he takes out a freshly sanded ball and tries to dry up the outside part of the lanes to give himself some extra area on the lane to play. Borderline cheating to me.

3. Patrick Allen----Walks around and acts like he truely believes he's God's gift to bowling. Confidence is one thing, but he goes overboard with it and doesn't really have the game to back it up.

4. Jason Couch-----All revs, no control. When he's got area, he's deadly, when he actually has to split a board, he stinks. Reminds me a lot of my kid brother before my kid brother really learned how to bowl.

5. Bob Learn Jr.-----Again, all revs, not much control. When he taps, he acts like the world is dead set on him losing and he didn't deserve the tap (even when it was a bad shot). Just not a fan of his.

Ah, that reminds me. Hows Mrs. Norm Duke doing :-D

My high game is 308 or something like that.... yeah I played 5 pin not 10 pin though :-D I think I had 6 or 7 strikes in a row... not bad for somebody who hardly plays.

Hey Perlick, you see Sunday's show? Your boy Bohn won with a 288. Front 10, then blew it in the 11th. Still won the tourney beating out Robert Smith's 235. It was a good show all around. :-)

Just wanted to bump this thread back up for Mad and I. I'm watching Patrick Allen on TV at the US open.

Ugh, I'm disgusted with him. What an ass! Good thing Barnes is putting the whoopin to him. You were perfect in your analysis of he thinks he's gods gift to bowling. :-t

EDIT: Ok, I just saw the balk. Classic Barnes, he chokes. Opened the door wide freakin open.

EDIT 2: YEAH! Nice 10th from Barnes! Congrats, Mazel all that, nice to see PA lose.
