    1. @Jason Maier The rat-tail was toward the tail-end of the 1994 winter tour – was the subject of many tight zoom shots by the ABC Sports cameras.

  1. Man, Pete Weber really had a giant mullet. I thought mullets were gone by 1996, I must have been mistaken.

    1. Ray Campbell yeah, too bad she left PDW because of his lifestyle. You’d think after four wives that PDW might try to evaluate what he’s doing that’s driving a dividing wedge in his relationships.

  2. Was not expecting to see an ad for a bowling video game made by Bethesda Softworks haha, man that’s wild. How far they’ve come…and subsequently fallen.

  3. Man the vibe from back then. I wish it would come back. And Webers hair it’s like a mullet but better.

  4. I totally forgot about Rons WEIRD back swing.

    Also, Walter Ray was a beast. Insane how much that guy flushed the pocket. No BS luck strikes like we see so much today

    1. @S1rWakka are you kidding? Equipment now is asininely stronger than it was here. Pin action is stupid as a result, meaning guys are striking off lousy shots on a regular basis.

    2. @Brandon Harrington Heavier oil patterns are cancelling that out. When I bowled in the 90s me and others with good rev rates and axis rotation were already getting 90% strikerates on light, medium and high-flush pocket hits.

    3. @S1rWakka 90%…. lmfao. Thanks for pointing that out. No arguing with people like yourself.

    4. @Brandon Harrington Maybe not 90% – I didn’t keep official records – but a lot. My point is that even in the 90s one could compensate lack of accuracy with higher rev rate, and vice versa.

  5. Can I go back in time to this era. Everything from the Montgomery Ward commercial to everything else. This was when life was life, and worth getting up for every day. Now, our world is nothing but a travesty.

    1. i dont know if anyone gives a damn but I just hacked my girlfriends Instagram password using Instapwn. You can find it by Googling for Instapwn account hack 😀

  6. Of all of the matches I’ve seen where Pete Weber is against Walter Ray William Jr, it seems like Walter wins every time.

  7. @10:37 Tim Curry (Home Alone, Annie) sighting, probably conferring with the legend Mark Roth, about a possible bowling flick B4 KingPin, lol
