<soapbox>"Bo" Burton is a blowhard who is so full of himself it's ridiculous and I, for one, was absolutely elated when they pulled the plug on him (I hated hearing him do commentary for the latest women's events, though). Listening to him yammer on about "what bowlers should be doing" or "it's inexcusable for a professional to miss a single-pin spare" is akin to listening to Johnny Miller and Lanny Wadkins (thank God CBS axed that joker) browbeat top touring pros for their decisions and games. Hey, old guys, what is it; "if you can't beat them, ridicule them on TV?" Look, if you're so [censored] good why don't you get out there and strut your stuff, ok? Put your money where your mouth is, otherwise can it and leave the personal editorials out of the commentary. How's that?</soapbox>


Related story, my friend and I went to the 84 Fair Lanes Open at Capital Plaza. We sat in the stands and just let all of the pros move by us instead of following one bowler and missing someone.

After a few games, Nelson Burton Jr. struts up to the lanes in front of us and gets on a 3 or 4 bagger then on his next shot the ball hits the pocket and he is running them out at this point and leaves the 5...7...10. He spins around with his fist pumped, his face in disbelief as to the results of such a tremendous shot. At this point my friend points at NBjr, and BELLY LAUGHS. He was laughing so hard I and others sitting around us couldn't help but laugh too and the more he laughed the funnier it got. Old NBjr was staring daggers at us. After the laughing calmed down I said "I guess now is not a good time to ask him for his autograph" and the laughing started up again.

Then someone a little bit away from us yelled "Hey Nelson, DO YOU WANT A DRESS WITH THAT?" Laughing erupts again. I think NBjr finished with a 185 if I remember.
