I just posted my latest installment at the Bella Online Bowling site. The title of the article says it all. Experienced bowlers will know full well what I'm talking about and if the beginners continue on with the sport, they're getting an insight into what is explained away as, "it's part of the game so get used to it."
The 10 Pin Tap
Nothing bothers and frustrates people more than to hit the solid 1-3 pocket and leave what is known as a "tap," "a ringing ten," or other various names, some of them not being repeatable in public.
ESPN Classics channel (ESPNC) broadcasts old PBA Tour matches and I catch it on cable whenever I can. It's too bad they don't show them as regularly as I would like them to and at better times than they do. Early mornings and late at night. Bowling "don't get no respect, I tell ya." Anyway, I really like the vintage ones where they are throwing rubber or urethane balls. Watching the competitors helps me to improve my game because I watch their releases and angles closely and it gets me back to the basics of the game. Check out the Forums for how it helped me during this past Tuesday's Sport Shot League.
I'm still looking for input, suggestions, opinions, and so forth to guide me in the direction that you would like to see the Articles and Forum head.
Without your help, I'll be just guessing about what would be of interest to everyone. Any assistance will be greatly appreciated, I assure you.
As ever, please pass this message along to family and friends.
