I can't believe there's such a ruckus about "hambone" and there hasn't been any comments about the absolutely terrible hip hop song that was on the telecast this weekend. That was just embarrassing.

I was in a tournament there yesterday. There was a guy there who seemed very into the bowling scene in the area. Also seemed like a very good bowler, though I didn't get to see him throw a shot. Might have been slightly autistic or something. Anyway, I heard him muttering hambone! a couple times.

Unfortunately, that's probably not enough to start a row on par with the one from last week.

Hmmmm...

Believe it. The majority just hate it. A guy on my league was cheering a fellow teamate on who was getting up to bowl. He had three strikes in the previous frames, and his teamate yelled out something about going for a hambone. The bowlers on the opposing team pretty much told him to shut the #@!% up, and not give that term any creedence.
It is pretty funny how that word,...it is just a word can touch off such lively discussions.

The people who are really serious and respect the history of the game don't like it, the people that aren't serious or are just getting into it don't care. Its going to make for an interesting verbal battle here soon I think.

And yes Lefty, that hip-hop song was stupid. I was like "what the f***?!" while it was playing.

Though I did enjoy the "goes down like a keg at a frat party!" line.

I wasn't completely focused on the telecast, but I thought I heard something that sounded hip-hoppish and I was like HUH??!!! I listen to hip-hop, as well as many other genres of music, but that wasn't something I was expecting to hear on PBA show.

I've been bowling ever since I can remember, respect the history of the game and I think it's funny. I guess I'm a mold breaker. laugh

I don't think I would have an issue if he came up with something that has some relevance to 4, like maybe el cuatro or quadruplet, or some reference to bowling or the history of it, like a turkey has historical ties from years ago. I don't get totally out of whack if someone uses it though, I just ignore it, including Stone and all the signs on TV.

Nothing wrong with being a mold breaker! I like that Rob is excited about it, but I won't use it in my every day bowling lingo, nor will I berate people for using it. I'll just ignore it or go laugh about it if its a joke.

Let us pray that when we're watching the US Open tomorrow we don't hear any "hambone", wouldn't be great?

Considering the averages from qualifying, I don't think we have to worry too much about hearing "hambone", unless one of the 4 finds a great line to the pocket. It should be a rather low scoring event.
