I've read on here many times of guys complaining about folks who can't hit the pocket on a consistent basis but are still able to carry the "Brooklyn" strikes and score well. To the "good bowlers", the guys who hit the pocket 99% of the time, I know this has got to be frustrating to watch.
Anyway, here is the question that I pose in regards to this...IF, for some reason one night, every time you hit the pocket you only cleared nine off the deck leaving a solid 8 or 9 or 10 pin. You try making adjustments, but in the process, you happen to "overhook" and go "Brooklyn", and blow all the pins into the pit. Next ball, you go "Brooklyn" again...another 10 in the pit.
Now, at this point, KNOWING that the "solid" pocket hit is leaving one standing...do you then "resort" to going for "Brooklyn" on your strike ball?
My opinion on the matter is a STRIKE is a STRIKE whether you hit the pocket solid, go Brooklyn, or get the "domino effect" from a 3-6 hit. What's your opinion???
That which doesn't kill you will only make you stronger, that which doesn't make you stronger is a waste of time!
