  • If I Only had a Spare Game!

    If I Only had a Spare Game!

    The Crew, The Crew Contributors March 8, 2012 at 7:28 pm 2 comments

    Since taking on this column, I have developed as a bowler. From knowing when to make a ball change, to knowing when to make adjustments on the lane, to just my over all confidence. The one thing that still needs work, and lots of it; my spare game! I’m sure […]

     
  • Shark Open – Deja Vu

    On this week’s telecast we returned back the WSOB for the Shark Open.  The format for the Shark Open is the eliminator format in which the lowest score loses, and is eliminated from the tournament, hence the name ELIMINATOR format.  In my previous article “Chameleon”, I mentioned that I am […]

    FUN – DA -MENTALLY Speaking How many times do you hear the phrase Practice Makes Perfect? I have had this discussion with teammates several times. It is the responsibility of those, whose skills are better than others to pass on their skills no matter how little you may think it […]

    Turning the Corner

    The Crew, The Crew Contributors March 1, 2012 at 5:08 pm 1 comment

    The scores are still a little short of where I want them to be, but after last night, I really feel like I’m turning the corner to becoming the better bowler I set out to be! Let me explain further, I missed 600 last night by 6 pins, bowling a […]

     
  • PDW Wins the U.S. Open, but Loses Fans

    The U.S. Open is one of the most grueling tournaments of the year by far, due to the lane conditions, and amount of games played to win the tournament.  With that being said I would like to take the time to talk about some of the positives of the U.S. […]

    I’m getting closer! Oh, so much closer! This week has seen a lot of bowling taking place, most of it better than worse. Last night was another validation that the work I’m putting in is paying off, but that there is still a lot of room to improve and grow. […]

  • Scorpion Pattern – Fighting Those Demons

    This week we take a look at the Scorpion Pattern on the PBA, and discuss the results as well as talk about the mental side of the bowling.  This is definitely one of the areas of the game I struggle the most with, like many bowlers out there.  We will […]

     
  • Consistency + Confidence= Success

    Consistency + Confidence= Success

    The Crew, The Crew Contributors February 16, 2012 at 3:44 pm 0 comments

    That was the theme of the night, nothing big, and nothing flashy, just consistent. Could it have been better, sure, but compared to where I was the previous week, I’ll take it! Ended up finishing the nigh with a 567 series (187, 189, and 191), which is a big step up from […]

     
  • Jet soars to new Altitudes

    The Crew, The Crew Contributors February 16, 2012 at 2:37 pm 2 comments

    A few months ago I got my first chance at being a staffer for a bowling company. The name is ‘Jet Bowling’ and I have to say that these balls are the real deal. I have already had many honor scores with their latest release the Altitude . Jet currently […]

     
  • Chameleon

    This week I would like to take a look at the Chameleon Open and open a discussion on a few things for our viewers to comment on this week.  I have also noticed some things that I find to be a little odd regarding the recent PBA events this year […]

    Getting Better, One Bad Night at a Time

    Ever have one of those nights on the lanes where it was a constant struggle from the first practice toss on? Where you can’t find a line or any sort of consistency? Ever have one of those nights when you get a strike but you’re still frustrated because you missed your […]

     
  • What Can We Learn From CP3?

    This past weekend was the Chris Paul Celebrity Invitational.  As always I would like to recap some of the event, and give the viewers out there something to take away from the televised event to improve their game.   The celebrities involved in the event were Chris Paul, Blake Griffin, Reggie […]

    Much Deserved Break

    Rest and relaxation never hurt a sole! I was able to get much of that this last week but don’t worry, a lot of bowling took place, just no league! As I mentioned last week, due to a scheduling conflict, I didn’t have my typical Wednesday night league so I […]

    This week I would like to discuss none other than the USBC Masters.  The Masters is one of the most grueling tournaments of the year, and is by far one of the hardest tournaments to win.  This year the tournament had over 300 entrants into the tournament, and an extremely […]

    That was the thought I had as I left the lanes last night, what bowler am I really? Two 600 series’ in 3 weeks would lead me to believe I’m turning the corner towards my goals of 190 and above (I’m really shooting for 200 or above, but one step at […]

  • Change is Good

    If there is one thing we can take away from this week’s telecast of the PBA’s WSOB it’s that CHANGE IS GOOD.  It’s an inevitable fact of life if you want to be great at something you need to continue to change and adapt to the environment around us.  Whether […]
