Well, I can't remember the exact scenario, but I believe that last time, prior to this past week, I saw Randy Pederson bowling on a televised broadcast, something else distracted him from the stands then too. It was like last year or so, but he again was distracted and blamed failure to execute on that.
This year, I wasn't surprised to see it happen again. I'm sorry he seems hyper sensitive to outside sounds and movements because as someone above mentioned, he's a great bowler or he'd not have gotten there. He seems the type of bowler that hypes himself up, for reaction after Execution
, by running out strikes for example. This may also make him hyper sensitive when he has to be settled down and execute. I know he bowls in most of the tournaments, we don't know what happens during the week. Maybe he's similarly distracted during the week too? I do think it was very unprofessional of him to vent his frustration pubically. The pressure of PBA bowling is great, but these guys are supposed to be up for it. That's why they are PBA and we arn't. Look at all the times Chris Barnes had his game won and failed to execute for whatever reason. He was always frustrated but never exhibited temper as we saw this weekend.
On the other hand, it was very refreshing to have Brian Voss in the commentary booth.
