I’ve not had the privilege of attending a PBA Hall of Fame induction before and it was, indeed, a privilege. The veneration of this year’s inductees and the re-recognition of the Hall of Fame members in attendance was a disarming experience. I had the opportunity to see some of the players with whom I'd bowled in competition, and talk with some of the newest talents in the game.
There was one speaker that evening, though, who drew so much of my focus, that I was shaken right down to my competition genome. He couldn’t have been at the podium longer than 5 minutes, but for some, that is all the time that is necessary.
