I absolutely loved it when Pete did that!

Pete set the bar to get after Stone for 4-baggers now!!

Commentatings getting better though!

Tough start for my boy Billy, but I like his finish!

I'd say Pete has a few issues with Stone, primarily the whole hambone thing.

I think Billy was still having some issues from practice that Randy mentioned. He finally started making good shots and had he carried those 7s in the eight and ninth the game might have went the other way.

Rob Stone is really getting on my nerves with the hambone.

There is a good number of players who don't like Stone/The Hambone. But, it is getting a lot of attention and drawing fans.

My wife sat and watched the telecast with me a little bit today. She said that even she was annoyed with Stone. I was more annoyed today with the Denny's commercials. "Well that isn't a real breakfast." How many times can they run the same commercial?

Denny's seems like they only have 2 commercials. This one and the other where WRW drops the food off his fork. Frankly, I think this one sends a better message.

I think I'll pay McDonald's in Monopoly money for there "not real" breakfast, and see how far that gets me. If that trend starts, you can see how far bowling viewership has come.

Personally I would rather have a sausage and cheese McMuffin or a bacon egg and cheese biscuit than anything on Denny's menu.

They are coming out with ham bone tee shirts so I would say that it is going to be around for a while whether you like it or not. That is the ESPN way, come up with a good catch phrase and you will move up in the rankings.

Yeah, the hambone is really annoying me. I like how the other commentator kept correcting stone today. I have to wonder though, do they hand out the retarded hambone signs for people to hold onto now? Is this turning into wrestling where they hand out signs at the door?

I think Pete Weber has issues with the hambone thing after seeing his remarks topped off with a crotch chop...very ammusing.

But like it or not the hambone thing really has life...its growing by the week. I wonder how many of those signs were legit, and how many were planted by ESPN, or the PBA.
Regardless.....The Hambone Lives..and getting bigger by the week.

Yet another sign that the Apocalypse is upon us. Bad enough bowling has the stigma of fat, sweaty guys in a large, smoke-filled room drinking pitchers of beer, belching and showing off their "wife-beaters", now we need some idiot to tie something as ridiculous as "hambone" to our sport. Lovely. What's next? Is Chris Berman going to come on and say, "Tommy 'Don't Call me Davy' Jones throws a strike as Sean 'Road' Rash is defeated." Actually, that would be better than that freakin' "hambone" saying.
