Who is your favorite PBA Bowler of all time?
on: September 26, 2017, 10:34:23 PM
Mine would be Earl Anthony. His focus and concentration were phenomenal, and he had such control over his physicality.  My brothers and me loved to watch him growing up.

Having met Wayne Webb, "favorite" isn't the first thought that comes to mind.

Never met the man. I enjoyed watching him in the early to mid-eighties when he won the bulk of his titles.

He is one hell of a bowler, that's for sure. But as a person, kind of a "richard". Then again, I do tend to bring that out in people.  ;D

Green Hammer???

Yeah Faball made a small batch special for Wayne Webb IIRC (test balls basically but legal due to being pre 1991 grandfathered in I think).  Some pics below at start of that thread.  Pretty cool looking balls but stupid hard to find.  I think reaction wise they are nearly identical to the Blue (edit: actually think it was the the Black) but never seen one myself.

Norm Duke!

Though I do have to say, I was just getting into bowling at the time Doug Kent went on fire and have always enjoyed his game.

Surprised no body mentioned Bohn.  Mechanically about as good as you will find, and a good guy.
