Here's the exciting conclusion of the 1981 PBA National Championship. Both players had their trouble in the 10th. You gotta love how Earl looks to the heavens and says "thank you" when its all over...once again...enjoy
Here is another story about Earl Anthony from a buddy of mine Howie "G":
Some of the little things Earl (and others) would do (in warm-up), also aided them in their TV matches. For example, Earl would take a dull Urethane (or rubber) ... and throw repeated shots "left" of his intended target line. This would create a "dry" area (to the left) ... and allow him to "bounce" his "tamer" ball back to the pocket (if he missed left!) Therefore, sometimes his being the only "lefty" in the field, was a huge advantage to him. Ironically it was his "2nd" place finishes, that drove him to believe that a conspiracy "against him" was in the works. He would comment that the "shot" that allowed him to lead in qualifying rounds, was radically different than the TV pairs.
