I loved it, but, I would've never done it. His body was flat out about 5 feet in the air. That had to hurt. If it didn't hurt him, it would've sent me to the hospital. Good thing it wasn't wood huh? What if he got a nice splinter through his chest? oh well. I heard he's been doing it since he was about 4. I bet he doesn't do it when he's 44.
Anyway, it got a nice spot on sportscenter. The only bad publicity is no publicity.

Actually, if my kid does something stupid he sees on TV then I blame myself for not teaching him well enough the difference between right and wrong. We teach our children how to make decisions. That's the best you can do. There are many dumb things done on television. If parents do their job, then they have nothing to worry about.

There is a saying, if your friends jumped off of the empire state building yada yada yada.......................

Wow there's a concept, a parent actually taking responsibility for raising their kids eek . And here I thought I was the only one these days with that burden. It is so nice to see that there are still parents other than myself that do that. Rather than blaming the world for "problems" they are having.

Although I haven't seen the footage. I have noticed that from the last time I watched bowling competitions there seems to be more emotions and actions allowed up there then there used to be. back in the '80-90's it was almost like watching golf. Big time way to catch up on your sleep. Now I can actually get into it.

When I was watching the match live, I thought he still needed the two pins (thanks to Randy's commentating) so I couldn't believe he actually did it! But watching it on replay I saw he had already won the match after the 2nd strike, I then thought it was kind of funny (but physically it seems risky).

if you go on PBA.COM and sign up for strikepass, its 8 dollars for a month subscription I believe. Its really worth it because you can watch all the ESPN events shown on sundays and mondays reshown as well as skill challenges. Great investment if you are a fanatic bowler.

Well you can watch streaming video of all the TV finals and they happen to have the machuga flop on that one. Yeah it is funny...quite painful Im assuming too...

Hope that helps,
