Well, I turned the sound on the stream again this weekend. I know, I know, I mentioned just last week that I don't like to turn the sound on because the commentators usually annoy me, lol. However, I deliberately turned the sound on this time because I saw that a female pro friend was going to be commentating on the WPBA matches.
I didn't get to hear her commentate after all, but I heard some other female pros and they were fantastic! And it reminded me that when I watch pro events when pro's are commentating, I turn on the sound. Therefore, it's during amateur events when the commentators are kinda just talking on the mic and not about the why's of the choices of the players when I don't like to listen.
The pros I listened to this weekend for the WPBA tournament we're really extraordinary! They would talk about what the players should do with their shot choices, what they should have done that would have been more effective with their patterns, talked about using certain English, about staying down on their shots, better safeties, all sorts of gems!
At one point, a non-pro joined one of the female pros in the booth and I was immediately distracted by him. I am not trying to be rude, but I simply enjoyed the knowledge from the pro's so much better. They kinda had to correct him a lot on his suggestions. I'm not saying that's good or bad for the viewers, but for me personally, one of the bonus's of the platform of streams is for us to learn.
I was actually very excited for all the great commentary from the female pros this weekend! Very valuable insight!
