LOS ANGELES – In one of the highest scoringtelevised Baker format doubles title matches inPBA history, comedian and podcast innovator ChrisHardwick and 14-time Tour winner Chris Barnesdefeated actor/comedian Kevin Hart and four-timePBA Tour titlist Bill O’Neill, 270-267, to win the5th annual Chris Paul PBA League All-Stars tour-nament aired on ESPN from Lucky Strike LA Live.Hardwick and Barnes combined for the last ninestrikes in the title match to edge Hart and O’Neillfor the win. O’Neill could have sewn up the matchwith a strike on the second ball in the 10th frame but left a 10 pin.“This has to be the best celebrity tournamentever,” said Hardwick, who is the son of PBA Hallof Famer Billy Hardwick. “I was excited justwatching it, much less bowling in it.“They were kicking our butts at first and mymindset was to just not get slaughtered,” addedHardwick. “But Chris (Barnes) kept me pumped upand said we’ve got a long way to go in the match.“I have to admit that the pressure of that matchgot me a little fatigued, but looking back at it thatmay have helped because being a little tired forcedme to relax and not over think it.”Barnes, one of six PBA triple-crown winners,struck on all of his shots including all three in the10th frame to win the match.“We had our hands full with those guys,” Barnessaid of the Hart/O’Neill team. “They got off to afast start with the first three strikes, but we didn’tlet them get too far away (Barnes and Hardwick started spare-strike-spare). I reminded Chris(Hardwick) that there was a long way to go in thematch and anything could happen to turn it around.He threw some clutch strikes in the fifth, seventhand ninth to keep the string going.”The 2013 fundraiser, benefitting Paul’s CP3Foundation, returned to a doubles format and show-cased several owners and players in the new PBALeague. Other Tour players competing in additionto Barnes and O’Neill were reigning Player of theYear Sean Rash, five-time Tour winner JasonBelmonte, PBA Hall of Famer Norm Duke, four-time Tour titlist Mike Fagan, three-time Tour win-ner Osku Palermaa, and two-time PBA regionalwinner Missy Parkin.In addition to Paul, Hardwick and Hart, other PBA League owners represented were former NFLAll-Pro receiver Terrell Owens, Pittsburgh Steelerslinebacker LaMarr Woodley, and actor JesseWilliams. Other celebrities competing were Paul’sClippers teammate Blake Griffin and former NBAstar and ESPN analyst Jalen Rose.Competition began with two Baker doubles elim-ination rounds of four doubles teams each with thehighest-scoring team in each bracket advancing tothe championship match. The Baker formatrequires the pro and celebrity to alternate frames ineach game.

Kevin Macchia, Colette Malyack Top Youth Travelers
By Vince Albrecht
BOONTON, NJ 01-13-13 - It took just a few frames to realize theStan Niemiec youth bowlers were exposed to advantageous scoringconditions at Boonton Lanes. By the time the last plastic-sticks fell,there were two “700s”, four “650s”, three “600s” to go along withfour “250s”, five “240s”, five “230s” and eighteen other deuces.Holiday II opened with a season best 903 scratch that would have been higher had anchor Kevin Macchia, having entered the eighthframe with a seven-bagger, not inexplicably bounced his next deliv-ery off his ankle into the channel. Talk about youthful resiliency,Kevin withstood the subsequent pain to convert the spare and finishwith 246. By the time game two started, one would have wondered if Kevin had hurt his ankle at all as he proceeded to bury the pins for 267 on his way to a session high 714 set….amazing.Meanwhile, his teammates contributed seven deuces: ColetteMalyack 246-251-205: 702, Joe Malyack 222-202-212: 636 andFrank Olandesi 203 as Holiday II cruised past Bowler City IV whose best was Nick Ferrante 222 and Greg Khan 207.Rob Gilbert, Jr. knocked the pins silly with 228-211-258: 697 whileEric Grabusnik and Matt Trento posted 205 and 202 respectively, butBowler City I dropped all three games to Bowler City II whichrapped out high team handicap game 1043 and fourth best set 2894.Pacing the victors were Welmer Paguay 245: 619, Jonmikal Sepero237: 618, Kyle Schellberg 237: 598 and Kristen Kane 187.League-leading Boonton scored well enough to win most matches, but only managed to take the finale from upstart Bowler City IIIwhich benefited from Nick Reyes 233-214: 618, Tiffany Sucero 213-203 and Arielle Wallace 178. Pacing the front-runners were JustinPuchalski 245-235: 663, Karl Kattermann 236-235: 655, Pat Teshima225 and Brian McGrath 182.Steve Plaszky 216, Matt Myers 194, Hassan Izzard 189 andMadison Perry 169 were enough to power Fair Lawn to a sweep of shorthanded Montvale. Katie Didonato 210 and Matt Russell 191-182 kept Montvale competitive. Holiday I’s Brian Rizzi blitzed themaples with 280, delivering his last ten strokes for strikes after anopening 191 and closed with 215 for a 686 set; Frank Magyar addeda 244 and Lilly Sigona 175 as the team earned seven points from thevacancy.In the first round Hardwick, creator of the popular podcasts The Nerdist and All-Star Celebrity Bowling, and Barnes, representing their Silver Lake Atom Splitters team combined for a 199 game eliminatingRose and Fagan, representing the Motown Muscle (190), Owens andDuke, representing the Dallas Strikers (186), and Williams and Rash bowling for the BROOKLYN STyLES (143).In the second round, Philadelphia area natives Hart and O’Neill of thePhiladelphia Hitmen advanced to the title match by combining for a 218outscoring Griffin and Parkin, representing Billie Jean King’s New York WTT KingPins (189), Paul and Belmonte bowling for L.A. X (182), andWoodley and Palermaa bowling for the Pittsburgh Jack Rabbits (177).Between semifinal matches the celebrities participated in the one-ball“Super Clash” elimination competition which was won by actor QuintonAaron, who played the role of Baltimore Ravens lineman Michael Oher in “The Blindside.” Aaron struck on his seventh shot to edge tournamenthost Paul who had a nine-count. Defending champion Williams waseliminated in the fifth frame.
