Congrats to the two guys from NJ.

Jeff was on the Roto Grip staff, wonder if he still is and what he was using.

Maybe Lonce from NLPS knows.

How can you claim they are Pro's, and then say it like it's a negative thing?  I guess if you consider a bowler who competes in an occassional Regional tournament, the regular state and county tournaments, and three leagues a week a professional, well then you could probably say that 80% of us are pros.  I love it when people see someone people obtain a significant accomplishment and automatically bash them.  They hit a pair that they matched up with and managed to stay consistent through an entire set.  We've all been there, but I'm sure it hasn't happend on a stage as grand as the National Tournament.  Knowing both of them personally, I would say that they probably lined up off each other rode the wave.  In a tournament like this, it's definitely easier to put up a number when there is positive energy around you.  If they were surrounded by guys shooting 450, I doubt it would have happened, but they were surrounded by great bowlers and even better friends, so they were very comfortable and after the first game they definitely had momentum on their side.  When your teammate is striking, it's much easier for you to follow suit.  Solid teamwork.  If anyone read the article on bowl.com, you'll see that they both opened early in the third game, pushing them to the test.  They simply regrouped, buckled down, threw a double, and picked up right where they left off.  Truly the act of champions.  In a tournament of this magnitude, shooting a number of that nature is impressive.  If you are familiar with the tournament process, you walk into the doubles portion, throw a couple of shots and get right into competition, you barely have time to get loose and warm up, nevermind get lined it, that makes it even more impressive to me.  

"Professional" or not, it's an accomplishment that should be congratulated and not scrutinized.  Great bowling guys..............

Why does everyone try to make it harder than it really is?  Overthinking makes the game that much more difficult.

Check this out. There was this score and 3 X 300's monday night. My buddy is a mechanic at the stadium and said that the night lane guy accidentally input the wrong pattern. Wow. How lucky are these guys? They should ny lottery tickets.

I'm the stylish one of the group. I know what you're asking yourself and the answer is yes. I have a nick name for my pen is. Its called the Octagon, but I also nick named my testes - my left one is James Westfall and my right one is Doctor Kenneth Noisewater. You ladies play your cards right you just might get to meet the whole gang


How could a lane guy put in the wrong lane pattern when its the same pattern from the first day till the last day of the tournament? Why would the machine be changed if only tournament bowlers are bowling on the lanes?
