Bowling so desperately needs that young demographic. What an incredible league they have there over in Maine. Last night in league, I couldn't help but notice the contrast. Fairly tame, stodgy from practice balls all the way to the end. It's not about the yelling or the scores, it's about the Team Excitement atmosphere. The PBA bowlers felt like they were in the World Cup rather than another PBA tour stop, and they all loved it.

The only place they felt like they had real fans, and a huge cheering section.

It was not so much a rowdy and obnoxious setting either, more like a lot of fun and cheering from appreciative fans, there's a huge difference there.

It felt more like a crossover of WWE Monday Night Raw and the PBA Tour was happening, that same young demographic that you talked about, for the first time in several years I actually enjoyed watching a Tour telecast for a change because of the fans being so into it from the opening shot until the final ball of the rolloffs in each of those two matches (both best-of-2 matches needed a rolloff in each due to being tied at one match a piece).

I'll even venture that even veterans like Johnny Petraglia (Brooklyn STyLES manager), Mark Baker (Silver Lake Atom Splitters Manager) and Carmen Salvino enjoyed it, they need to have this kind of over-the-top atomosphere every year, it feels more like League play for us amateurs, loud, with plenty of distractions, lots of great action, and even some good quality time for all of us to work on that TunnelVision baby!!! I loved it!!! smile and with that same youthful enthusiasm seen here that this particular demographic seems to bring out there, as opposed to a more laid-back (and dull at that I must admit) crowd that we all seem accustomed to on every show, so LEMME HEAR YA!!! We need more shows like this every once in a while!!! But anyhow, GO SPLITTERS!!!
