The time has come for the 7th annual competition between Europe and the U.S.A. It's going to be a great tournament this year, since the U.S has lost the three most recent years, and captain Tim Mack says that hell jump on Tommy Jones' shirt if they lose this year again. You guys don't even have to guess which side i'm pulling for grin

For those who have Sky Sports 3, you can watch the event live. And record it and uh, put on Youtube or something so i can view it too wink

The official site: www.webercup.com

At 7 pm... it begins

Paul Moor (England) threw 300 to win the first game, other than that nothing too special, USA lead 4-2 after the first day.

I would say the quality of bowling so far looks way better, most bowlers hitting 250+. I still don't know why Moor doesn't give the PBA a crack, he's been dominant in Europe and England for quite a few years now.

Maybe he doesn't want to be an ocean away from his family and other obligations.

And once you get to the US, its very expensive to follow the tour from stop to stop. The distances between stops are enormous. Plus the issues of getting a visa to be in the US and earn money over a period of time. Its complicated.

Frostbreath, please keep up updated. I don't get anything on ESPN or ESPN2 (our sports channels) about it.

No problem, Erin.

It's looking grim for Europe. After round two it's 4-8 to US, and they don't seem to show any signs of giving it up. Moor is doing awesome, rolling a 277. His point, and Koivuniemi/Torgersen's victory added their score to 4, but the americans are gaining points alot faster.

It's still a long run to go. Round three is about to begin.

And a USA win, 18-17, unfortunately Tore Torgenson left a split in the ninth, allowing the USA to shut Europe out. Up until that point Europe lead... dissappointing for me (especially since I bowl with Paul) but at least the European team made it respectable (after the first day I though the USA would walk it

I"m looking forward to seeing it on TV. Hopefully we'll get some of it over here.

The camera angle of the players was really awful, which annoyed me because as a cranker I was trying to watch Tommy Jones to see what he did and why he was so great. Luckily I got to go see it with a few friends so that was good.

The camera work wasn't always great, but in fairness, better than usual for bowling on Sky!
