Pete always seems to bowl well in his father's tournament.  I'd like to finally see him break through tomorrow.  It will be interesting if Pete wins his first match, he'd be up against his nemisis, WRW.  Should be an interesting show.


Top five advance to Sunday’s stepladder finals at 1 p.m. Eastern

1, Mike Fagan, Patchogue, N.Y., 17-7, 9,136.
2, Walter Ray Williams Jr., Ocala, Fla., 12-12, 8,964.
3, Pete Weber, St. Ann, Mo., 14-9-1, 8,941.
4, Ryan Shafer, Horseheads, N.Y., 17-6-1, 8,919.
5, Bill O'Neill, Southampton, Pa., 14-10, 8,814.

I'd like to see PDW win, but I'm thinking that it's about time for Mike Fagan to win one...all that talent and his only title was the Doubles with Danny Wiseman.

Mr. Arguile has paid his dues and deserves to win a title. If PDW loses, I will be rooting for Fagan.

I would definitely like PDW to win, despite being a WRW fan.  Pete deserves to win his father's tourney.

Did people catch on the show that they mentioned that PDW, at age 47, is going to become a grandfather?  Of course, PDW had his kids early on, probably both before he was 20.

It seems to me that the speed of Pete's ball leaves him with too much room for error.  I am only speeking of in the finals.  Maybe more speed and a tighter line.  But what do I know.

He was nailing the left lane all day.  The right lane was his nemisis.  I would have liked to ask him why he didn't play a direct line, like WRW did on that side?

exactly I know he has the skill to do it.  Do the ball reps have too much influence?  I mean would they get mad if he pulled out plastic and fired it straight at the pocket?

^ He'd give them a crotch chop and say he's PDW.

I've often wondered just how much influence the sponsors have over the bowlers, especially in terms of equipment selection.  For example, when the Natural first came out, you suddenly saw URETHANE being used on back-to-back telecasts.  Nothing in the decade leading to those telecasts, but a major PBA sponsor comes out with a urethane ball, and suddenly it's raining Naturals on TV.  Did Ciminelli (sp?) and Page *really* want to use urethane, or did Storm force them to?

Back in the DeeDee days...I couldn't stand her!

For once I was right about Fagan

Hey Fordman. y'know, sometimes I wonder whether PDW, as supremely skilled a player as he is, has the game to project the ball 'down the boards'. His claim to fame has always been his high, slightly inside-out swing, and that incredible hand rotation around the side of the ball, creating all that 'sideways', axis tilt type turn on the ball. if you noticed, he did try one frame, I believe, to move right and throw it straight. And he pulled the ball so badly, that it crossed brooklyn. It just doesn't appear to me that he's very confident in playing that shot, because his swing and release are geared for hooking it.

I'd sure like to see him polish that particular aspect of his game a bit more, Because I believe we all enjoy seeing him compete.
