Wow. Watching this brings back a lot of memories! Watch here, or visit the “Videos” tab above to see it or other previous shows:
Thank goodness Tommy & I worked on me getting my eyes stronger and I got rid of the glasses in 1996. I hadn’t even watched the production of an ESPN women’s show up until the day I appeared there in Rockford. Shot 289 in position round to advance-moved up the ladder from 9th to 5th. There was a lane-man “controversy” after position round, and he quit that evening, leaving lane maintenance for the telecast to the center’s head mechanic. Needless to say the lane conditions on the show were nothing like that of during the week, and I had no experience in the fast adjustments needed to get the job done to advance through the field. I used a Purple Hammer for the show.
