Scott the Engineer of The Howard Stern Show bowled in the WSOB last year at South Point. This year he wasn't able to bowl, but he is watching on Xtra Frame and doing a blog throughout.

After the first two rounds of the PBA World Championship some interesting stories are developing. I think the first one is that six different countries are represented in the top ten which gives the word “world” true meaning. I have always thought American bowlers to be the best in the world, I know there have been international players on the tour for many years, but I think the overall level of competition at the WSOB from the international players is now equal to the Americans.

The next story I like is the upcoming final of the Chameleon Open. I’m sure everyone remembers “bottlegate”. How exciting will it be if we see Jason Belmonte and Sean Rash matched up in the final. This has the makings to be one of the best matches in a long time. I think I’ll look through my sound effects library and see what I can come up with to help these guys. Stay tuned.

And finally, can anyone stop Sean Rash? The term “In The Zone” describes where Sean’s game is right now. He was within a solid 9 pin from winning the All-in Showdown, he’s in the final 4 for the Viper and Chameleon Opens, and he’s leading the World Championship with a 245 average. I was able to get to know Sean pretty well from the time I spent at the WSOB last year - he spent time giving me recommendations on how to improve my game - something he didn’t have to do that I appreciated very much. I think everyone knows the amount of talent Sean has, and he certainly brings an intensity we haven’t seen in a long time, but now he’s stepped up his game to an amazing level - maybe it’s the new Brunswick gear he’s using! I know I’ll be watching him the rest of the way, I hope you do to.
