Bowling Quote of the Day--PBA Telecasts Getting Worse

"Does anyone else find it ironic that, despite 40 years of amazing technological advances in the world of broadcast electronics, the PBA TV show today doesn't look half as good as it did 40 years ago? This decline in program quality is in stark contrast to today's football or baseball broadcasts, which do look far better than they did in earlier decades. Look at old clips of the PBA on YouTube and, faded as they may be, they still look far more professional than today's shaky, out-of-focus, bowler-blocks-your-view-of-the-pins broadcast."

  1. As a bowler, I like to see the lines the pros are playing, not how many hairs they have in their noses. I want to see their releases, slow-motion at times. Pedersen talks as if he can see what the player's hand is doing, from the broadcast booth. I want to see it. I want to understand what he's talking about. I also like to see the balls trajectory into the pins and the pin reactions. They do show that, at times. But, as Mr. Mills points out, the camera work is less than stellar...
