I agree with most everyone above the skills challenge it allows the fan an opportunity to see the pro without the game face on. Anyone who has watched Chris Barnes on TV probably doesn't even know the guy has a sense of humor. Its a good thing. I think I would still rather have 1 pro a week give a visual tip. I used to laugh at Nelson Burton Junior's tips but most were ok even though they were old school. Nick

I enjoy the skills challenge, but I also wish ESPN would make time for a tip or two. I think Randy Pedersen's color commentary has added an element of technical analysis that was missing from most earlier color commentators (Mike Durbin, Earl Anthony, et al), who mainly served as enhanced score keepers. Adding some specific instructional tips would complement the good work Pedersen is doing in helping viewers understand what's happening on the lanes and why.

The reverse between the legs was AWESOME!! I do agree with First strike, the tips would be great. I can remember years ago they would give you tips during the commercial breaks. I really think they should bring that back.
