So I'm curious about what others think about Simonsen winning this tournament using a back-up ball and throwing urethane. I am impressed because it sure is not easy to do what he did consistently and I know I can't do that at all. However, it also makes me think about how crazy things have become. For the pattern to have been destroyed so much on the right side that he felt his best option was to play the lanes as a lefty is not necessarily a new thought. However, actually doing it in a PBA event and winning that event is very surprising in my opinion.

He was also wearing Marshall Kent's shoes.

I've seen Belmo throw backup balls but not Simonsen. If getting strikes is simply speed and RPM's off the oil pattern, which side isn't important. However, to do it in the finals really shows how well practiced these guys are.

I don't get XTRA Frame so will need to wait until it shows up on youtube. Did he throw a ball drilled for a left hander or use one of his right hand balls?

I just watched it on Flobowling. I commend him and taking that big of a risk and it working out for him. I wish I could throw the ball 2 handed. I wish I could throw it backup 2 handed.
