Wonder if he'll throw the Total Inferno like Parker and Rash have both used everytime. I hope he can win it all!

Ric, do you think they picked that pair as the TV pair in advance? That pair had some horrible racks. The right side didn't have any push in the fronts and some carry-down as well.

Obviously Brad was the only bowler practicing on the right side on that pair. Were they just bad from the start or did his practice just make them worse??

The guys in the booth were equally as critical about Angelo.  Would you consider them armchair bowlers as well?

Hey Jon or Ric maybe you guys know this answer. Is it normal of the "new" PBA to put the TV show on a pair they didn't use all week? Pretty interesting if you ask me. I know back in the older days they used a pair that was used all week.. Lanes 9 and 10 are a pretty horrible pair in the house if you ask me.

I think he was just using the wrong color ball.    Especially if it had any static weight.   Probably a Purple ball with the pin at 1:30, 1" past the VAL and the MB 180 degrees left of the middle finger would work.


Just what the doctor ordered!

Not to sound to critical but do you have a clue what he was bowling on? The pair did not play like they did all week; the fronts went and the backs tightened up. How would you have played them? Give him a little more credit than wrong line and wrong hand position...and a comment such as 'amateurish'. Too many armchair bowlers.

Yes it has become common due to the fact that they have to set up the 'stage'.

Takes a lot of balls to say that Norm Duke is going to bash a player because he represents a different company than him.  Angelo is a great bowler, but he didn't make the right choices today at all.  It doesn't take a professional bowler to see that.  I'm not going to sit here and comment on what he should have done, but I'm sure if he had to do it again, he would do something completely different.  And by the way, thanks for "tellin me" as Brunswick Lefty says you did.

I agree, we have no idea what influences the choices the pros make, yet some people still think they know better. like the thought of switching hand positions didn't enter Brads head or something...

Brad Angelo is a pro, but he's a human first.  Sometimes the littlest thing can throw off your release.  The first 8 frames he just threw it bad.  Who knows why?  It's hard to say "What he should have done" since none of us are bowling on that same pattern in that enviornment and that there was no other righties to read off.  With Brad's game being as technical as it is, he can't really overpower a condition.  His strength is in shot making and playing the lanes smart.  He looked way off and didn't really do either of the two.  It happens to everyone.
