Yah, that experience of bowling at Sterling lanes was certainly unique.  The glare from the low celieng lights was awful!  I wonder what store used to be there prior to them opening up? 

As far as the 2010 Masters, I might take a pass on it...mainly because it's all the way in Roseville, and I don't really feel like trucking out there two days in a row.

Why would anyone actually change to a more difficult shot now adays really? I mean if it were up to me everything we bowl on would be full on sport, especially for any major tournament. But the minute it gets hard a ton of people complain. It just happens to be that this nullifies my main advantage on the lanes, which is the ability to do well on really hard lanes. In college whenever there was a really hard shot out, I would be in the top 10 or 15 of the event, but if it was easy I'm not nearly as high in the standings.

Also, this is the second tournament I heard in the metro-Detroit area this year where it became a major carry/score fest. The other was held at van dyke bowl. I saw the list of honors scores in the paper a week later and it was crazy. There were 8 300's and 5 800's. Plus I'll never forget the time in Ohio I saw a flyer for a tournament that said in big bold letters "No sport shot this year".

Oh well on a related note I heard a similar story to the one mentioned on this post. On the west side of Michigan a regional pro was working on some trick shots. He was trying to hook a ball around around 2 shoes on the lane. Well needless to say he hit a shoe and the ball shot up and went through the masking unit. It was pretty bad to see a big hole in it.

Also does anybody remember when Tommy Jones broke a hole in the travel lane they brought outside when they were doing trick shots on the Letterman show?
