I'm pleasantly surprised -- some positive signs here. I like the shift back to more 5-player stepladder shows. I like the return of the Cheetah Championship and the Japan Cup to the schedule. I like the return of the Tournament of Champions to an invitational event, as it was when I was a kid. And I particularly like the PBA's announced intent to return to a calendar-year schedule in 2014.

There are still downsides as I see them, but as I've harped on them elsewhere on multiple occasions, I'll bite my tongue (or fingers) here.

I'm looking forward to watching this season in HD on our new TV- an 80" Sharp Aquos LED Quattron. Ridiculously clear picture.

Glad to see the tour coming back to the Detroit area again this year. I'll have to check out the "Winter Swing".

Nice, now you will be able to count each rev. I noticed after getting a big screen TV, when I actually go to the movie theater, the screen seems a lot smaller.

Anybody catch any video of the PBA Summer Shootout this past weekend? I could not find it on PBA, ESPN, or YouTube websites. I was sad to see ESPN doesn't even list bowling in their menu of sports. Just some photos on PBA.com... http://www.pba.com/PhotoGalleries/Details/276

I watched it and have it on my DVR. Sadly, I can't record for you though because my only camera is an iPod Touch. Oh and the Wimbledon Championships went into bowlings time and they had to reschedule it. They just decided not to do bowling that day.

They showed it yesterday on ESPN2. You didn't miss much. It does look amazing on the big TV. It doesn't make the theater screen look much smaller (saw Ted this weekend- hilarious), but it is impressive to watch in our living room. If any of you are in the market for a new TV, I highly recommend the Sharp Aquos Quattron series- whatever size you want.
