Went to watch the National Championships today, and had a great time. Pictures are really [censored] but I'll try to get my friend to give me his, which are much better.

It was really cool talking to some of these guys. Mark Buffa was even handing out promotional pens and patches. And they were really nice in signing autographs.

The scoring pace was really low. As far as I saw, what separated the top from the bottom was spare making. I saw a lot of plastic balls overhooking on the wood lanes which resulted in quite a few missed spares. Very few people averaged 200; qualifying leader Mark Buffa only averaged 207. Cut line average is 179. On the women's side, Caroline Lagrange is the qualifying leader with a 211 average.

Pretty cool beefers, I am hoping the next time the pros are bowling at Palace lanes in Columbus Ohio I can take Jordan to watch I know we would both enjoy it.

Thanks, Rocket. Those people were a pleasure to meet, and I don't see how the pros will be any different.
