    I thought i had a hard time stopping during my approach..... Some dude runs into you and you keep moving? That is some serious commitment to throwing the ball.

    Being a 2-hander, I do have a hard time pulling up from a shot.

    okay, that is just silly that your director told you wrong. Think about it this way, if making contact with another person was not grounds for a dead ball, when money is on the line you'd see people tackling each other. I'd put my money on the Big Nasty in every PBA showdown. LOL

    Worse things can happen. Anytime you miss 600, 700, or 800 it hurts/angers.

    I bowled a 791 last year.

    Game 1: Front 9, left the 4 pin, then missed it - 267
    Game 2: Front 9, left the 10 pin, then missed it - 267
    Game 3: 3 and then a spare, ended with a 257

    If only I could have picked up EITHER of the spares in the first two games... Yes, that was a bad feeling.

    Then there was my teammate. I run out the front 8 and my teammate inexplicitly calls the attendant down to clean the approaches. Yeah, it really shouldn't effect me, but a delay is a delay.
