Absolutely. I have a team mate with 65 300 games, and he says he STILL gets a little nervous on the last two shots of a 300. To be able to keep throwing good shots any time after about the 18th or 19th strike is beyond my comprehension.

There might be - I don't do much with the local media. I don't read our local newspapers so. . . it IS southern Cali, after all. :P

EDIT: And I finally saw a video of the last 3 strikes on YouTube, which I'll embed below:



The video is lengthy (5:00+), but very good quality. smile

That's a great video. Thanks for sharing. He sure took his time, and I think that speaks volumes for his mental game.
