Late reply to the thread, but I was thinking watching this telecast if the great Earl would've outbowled everyone on the telecast. This looked like a shot that spelled RUNAWAY for him because Earl did not throw extreme shots but kept a very conservative shot for much of his career. It would've been no contest.
Regarding Rash, I don't have a clue what's up with him as of late. Missing a 9-pin is pretty ridiculous for a pro...almost like saying you can't hit the pocket. Maybe some of you are right...maybe some pros are overthinking things too much. That's partly why I quit PBA leagues...too much thinking involved on what I could do next and it was no fun after two years of trying to do that.
