Well, truth be told, I also have access to several hours of materiel.
You know those half dozen shots or so of you playing like a spastic monkey during our match are just the tip of the iceberg. If memory serves, those are all from just the first few minutes of the match.
You do the math : -)
I agree. It was a horrible display and should serve to scare any viewers into a straight stroke.
I was definitely off-the-air. I might have been feeling some emotion there mixed in with some hubris and held together by an oversized ego.
Or I could just naturally suck so bad that this is an example of how I have always played.
What's cool though is that I had CTE aiming to help me out sometimes when I did manage to have a facsimile of a straight stroke. That allowed me to make some great shots.
But I really was playing so bad that Freddie commented that if I was using CTE he couldn't see it.
Speaking of a pre shot routine this match was a huge testimonial to your stance on how important a solid psr is.
I often think back and say man you should have listened to Lou and made sure your psr was solid. That coupled with focused use of the cte aiming method would probably have made a huge difference in the match outcome.
I mean I think we are all clear that many opportunities were gifted to you by the spastic-monkey-on-crack swoopy stroke I was tortuously rocking.
And I am really glad that you weren't using an aiming system because given my state of mind and your rock solid psr you probably would have won 9:0 instead of 9-6.
It's incredible that I got six games. No idea how that happened.... Just the voices of all the cool people who gave me one pocket advice in the months leading up to the match I guess.
Some say I was getting coached. There was this one shot that you thought was a bonafide pro level shot and I was really proud of it until I saw that it got heavily criticized in the "worst shot ever" category. If anyone was coaching me they were probably wondering why I wasn't listening and selling out to you every other shot. Oh right, just because they tell me what to I can not execute because of not having a solid psr.
So your contention is that your psr(including whatever it does to aim) was superior to someone who couldn't stroke straight? I agree. As good as CTE is for aiming it can't make up for being a chicken wing jumping bean when shooting.
In my defense though in the three weeks prior to the match I visited many cities on a whirlwind tour. Would you like to see the pictures?
