One of my biggest issues with "hambone" is there is nothing that ties it to a 4 bagger. There's nothing historical behind it like with "turkey", and there is nothing with it that even equates to 4, unlike using nickel for a 5 bagger at least has some sense to it, with a nickel being 5 cents or a 6 pack for a 6 bagger. If he wants to make up a name for a 4 bagger then tie it in and not just pull an obscure reference with food out of the air because of turkey for 3 in a row.

The other is he gets so excited about it before it even happens, which does seem to be a jinx, but lets face it even for pros stringing 4 or more strikes is hard to do. Its much like football on TV, they will show a graphic that says the quarterback on the field hasn't thrown and interception in something like 150 attempts and then 3 plays later there's an interception. It happens 95% of the time when I'm watching.

As an announcer I don't have much issue with Stone other than what I've already said. He is learning, shows some enthusiasm and doesn't just sound like a robot.

The only way anything like that would effect the outcome of anything is if the information was heard by the player, which in turn affected their mental game. If they can be effected by something like that, they need a stronger mental game.

Come on, 95% of the time? Did you know 74% of statistics are made up on the spot.

Ok, about 95% of the time maybe a little less maybe a little more, almost every time I've seen that graphic that quarterback throws an interception within 3-5 passing plays. It has nothing to do with the player hearing it, or his mental game, its that they bring these things up when theres a good chance of it happening, I'm not saying its jinxing them, only that when these things are brought up and then it happens that to some it just looks that way.

Great lane condition today. It was one that challenged the bowlers and made it exciting in the sense that the bowlers had to work for their strikes. Best of all there were no four baggers and I didn't have to listen to Rob Stone yell 'hambone'.

I'm sure something will come up that will not keep you in boredom, Lefty. For that matter, if you fear being bored, just head on down to the lanes and yell "HAMBONE" when someone gets four in a row. I'm sure your boredom will end rather soon enough. wink
