Sucks that you haven't seen it yet, but this is one of the last sites you should visit. I work on Sundays and when I record Lions games and bowling I stay off of the internet and turn my phone notification off so I can watch when I get home. I don't even answer my texts until I'm done.

Agreed...Keith waited ~18 hours after the end of the telecast to start that thread.  In this day and age, if you really don't want to know the results of a live sporting event until later, you need to sequester yourself someplace, not visit a bowling message forum.  [wink]

I'm sorry if I spoiled it for you, but I think the proper protocol is if it was a taped delayed event, like some of the WSOB events that aren't shown for a month later, then it's proper etiquette not to talk about it at all prior to the televised event.  However, if an event is live, and has played itself out, then it's fair game to talk about.  I think it defeats the purpose of a forum not to talk about something that just happened that most people have watched and want to talk about just because a small few have not seen it yet.

Looks like my comment about how the lefties handled the breakdown had some merit.

I think we finally have the Jason Belmonte tour....anything he doesn't win these days?  My goodness, the guy never stops!  I actually thought Sean Rash had a chance at beating him, given that really good 300 game, but his luck ran out.  Sean's 300 was much cleaner and less reliance on luck than Ronnie's 300 earlier in the year.

On another topic, I'll say this but I think I might as well stick up a lightning rod in a thunderstorm.  The lefties were sunk the minute I saw three of them qualify for the show and Jason basically had the right side to himself with one other player.  Put three of them on the same pair, and by the time they figured it out, Jason Belmo was gone and saying "see ya mate!".  Does the show demonstrate that righties are better at adjusting quicker just because they typically have to?  I know the lane man can do whatever he wants and either make it easy or hard for either side, but how often do you get three left-handers on one pair having to figure out what to do?  What's your take on that?

Being a lefty, I have to agree with Chipper...we're generally not as good at making adjustments as righties because we so rarely have to do it.  On any given league night, once I find a line, it's not often that I have to make any serious adjustments (especially on wood lanes).

However, a "professional" bowler shouldn't struggle with lane transition...it's something they should be able to deal with.

Making those adjustments in a one game do or die match might be a little more difficult for someone who isn't accustomed to it. 

Me I would ban 2 handers and lefties.
