whoever thinks that rob stone is stupid for making up the "hambone" and "yahtzee" need to lighten up. it isnt ruining the sport in any way at all. personally, i like it. it gives me a chuckle every time i hear it and most of the fans watching in the stands seem to like it too. can somebody explain to me why its so bad?

I can't give you any bad things about it, I like it, the publicity is good and even the bowlers get into it. 5 bagger doesnt have the same appeal as YAHTZEE! I think its great, it gets the fans going too.

I agree. Not a thing wrong with the hambone. ANY publicity is good publicity.

Speaking of that...remember when The big nasty skipped the plastic ball tournament? Well...on an actual sports type show there was some talk about it, and when Malott won the following show, it was amplified...Wes called out Mr. Wilbon while hoisting the trophy, then Wilbon makes the terms for the grudge match...



and Malott accepts...

...enjoy

He had a nice looking hook on the ball, until it hopped in the channel. whoops. I think we all have done that once or twice.

Seems like Wes gave Wilbon a few tips before the video. I was surprised that Wilbon could change he release so quickly from a hook to straight or what may have been a backup.

It looked like maybe the hook was something new to him and he was a straight bowler, Mallot may have been sabotaging him showing him a hook release before :P

And the announcer dropped the exemption line 4 too many times, made me think it was some weird carrot he was given to play :P guessing not though
