From what I can tell from some of the ticked-off posters on this thread that there ae many of you who either TiVoed or DVR'ed the telecasts while watching the NFL.

I do apologize for potentially spoiling it for some of you user


Don't Apologize. Your title was quite clear that you were going to talk about the winner of the World Championship. thoes of us who TiVo-ed the show should have known better.

Well the original title actually had the name of the winner in it before the admin edited it.

Well now that I know better (yup, I learned the hard way), I will from now on refrain from doing this now that I also know that there are some fans on this board who don't necessarily watch the telecasts LIVE as it happens like I do.

I didn't necessarily know that it would have the capability of becoming a spoiler, and also the storyline that has been such a great one that I just felt obligated because of it to share some of it with you.

Maybe next time I will wait until someone else wants to bring it up before doing so in the near future.

Thanks,

You just got a little excite Ray. No harm no foul, some people just found out the winner before they got to watch it. There are worse things that could happen.

His style is similar to late Jimmy Keeth.

You think is right?

I remember the way Jimmy Keeth bowled, but he was all speed along with all that power and the high RPM rate that he was able to generate. His bugaboo was spare making.

But, Jimmy Keeth was double-jointed, that is how he was able to bowl one-handed with his style as opposed to the hybrid Jason Belmonte/Jimmy Keeth style that Tom Smallwood has.

It basically is a two-handed start up until the apex of his backswing, like Belmo, then everything downward is much like Keeth, one-handed, but only with slower speed and much better control.

BTW, I always wondered, since we now have opened the door to double-jointed players with titles, does anybody here remember Bob Vespi? It seemed like from 1992-93 he was unbeatable with that great bent-elbowed strike ball he threw, but like most power crankers did in the 90's, his downfall was a low spare conversion %.

Too new to bowling to remember Bob Vespi, but he was very successful, winning 2 titles. Looking on Youtube, I saw a telecast where he actually mentions that he'd been working on his spare shooting and how it's gotten a lot better. Amazing style, that guy has.

Whatever happened to him and Kelly Coffman?
