Comedian/Comedy Podcast Guru Chris Hardwick Becomes a PBA League Team Owner
By Jerry Schneider - PBA SEATTLE - Comedian, actor, podcast entrepreneur and accomplished bowler Chris Hardwick has become the newest owner of a team in the new Professional Bowlers Association League. Hardwick is the owner of the Silver Lake (Calif.) Atom Splitters team which features franchise player 2007-08 Player of the Year and 14-time PBA Tour titlist Chris Barnes, Nathan Bohr, British stars Dom Barrett and Stuart Williams, and 2011-12 PBA Rookie of the Year Josh Blanchard. Hardwick, the son of PBA Hall of Famer Billy Hardwick, joins Los Angeles Clippers star Chris Paul, former Super Bowl champion Pittsburgh Steelers running back Jerome Bettis, former NFL all-pro receiver Terrell Owens, actor/comedian Kevin Hart and all-pro Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker LaMarr Woodley as owners in the PBA League which debuts as part of the PBA Detroit Winter Swing Jan. 19-27 at Thunderbowl Lanes in the Detroit suburb of Allen Park, Mich. In 2010 Hardwick created one of the Internet's most popular comedy podcasts called The Nerdist. The hourlong podcasts include conversations and interviews with notable comedians and entertainers, such as Tom Hanks, Mel Brooks, Jon Hamm and Jimmy Fallon. Hardwick started "All Star Celebrity Bowling" on The Nerdist YouTube channel (youtube.com/nerdist<http://youtube.com/nerdist>), a team charity bowling match where he and three Nerdist employees take on teams of celebrities such as the casts of Mad Men, Breaking Bad, Mythbusters and team Conan. The success of The Nerdist spawned Nerdist Industries which includes Nerdist.com, premier YouTube channel youtube.com/nerdist<http://youtube.com/nerdist>, and Nerdist Daily News e-newsletter among other properties. "Bowling means the world to me. I grew up on the Professional Bowlers Tour and have been around bowling my entire life thanks to my dad," said Hardwick, who also has more than 1.7 million followers on Twitter. "I was actually named after Chris Schenkel! As a 190-200 average bowler, I would never make it on the Tour so the next best thing for me is to acquire a team so I can live vicariously through their accomplishments--kind of like an annoying stage mom. "Since bowling is the purest demonstration of Newtonian Physics, I wanted a science-y team name so I went with "Atom Splitters." Of course, splits are no good to a bowler, but I think the name refers more to the fact that Chris Barnes and Co. are so accurate on the lanes, that the precision of their shots could split any single atom of their choosing. It is very exciting to me that almost all of the other teams are owned by professional athletes who are about to feel the searing sting of getting their asses handed to them by a nerd. ALEA IATCA EST." (Latin: "The die has been cast") Hardwick's other credits include hosting AMC network's highly-rated Talking Dead, and an hour-long stand-up comedy special called "Mandroid" that premiered in 2012 on Comedy Central. He previously hosted Singled Out on MTV and Web Soup for the G4 Network. Hardwick is also getting a full season at BBC America. The Nerdist (named after his popular podcast and website), has expanded from numerous pop-culture specials to a 10episode season that will kick off in spring 2013 as part of the cable network's "Supernatural Saturday" programming block. "Chris Hardwick has the perfect DNA to become an owner in the PBA League and we couldn't be more excited about the partnership," said PBA’s Tom Clark. "His father is a legend on the lanes and Chris is not only a great promoter of bowling already with his All-Star Celebrity Bowling show on his web site but brings legions of fans from his ever-expanding kingdom to the PBA." Hardwick will compete in the Chris Paul PBA League All-Stars event which will take place at Lucky Strike LA Live in Los Angeles. The tournament, which benefits CP3 charities, will air on ESPN Super Bowl Sunday at 4 p.m. ET. The eight teams that will make up the PBA League were determined through a draft that was conducted during the GEICO PBA World Series of Bowling in November. ESPN will televise five weeks of PBA League competition beginning Sunday, Jan. 27, plus the PBA League Elias Cup finals in April. The celebrity owners will not compete on the lanes as part of official PBA League competition. During the first four days of the Detroit Winter Swing, the PBA will conduct a series of open-field tournaments (the Carmen Salvino Classic, Mark Roth Classic, Don Carter Classic and Earl Anthony Players Championship). Those four events will award individual PBA Tour titles and the qualifying scores posted by each PBAL team member will be combined to produce the team qualifying scores for the ESPN telecasts. All PBA League matches on ESPN will be Baker Format matches, where each team member will bowl two frames in each game.

SPORTS REPORTER DAUGHERTY
past Australian two-handed star Jason Belmonte, 256-187, and threw a critical double in the fifth and sixth frames of the title match to defeat Palermaa, getting help from the Finnish two-handed star when he had consecutive opens in Continued from page 1 the sixth and seventh frames. Ironically, Daugherty put together the best performance of his professional career while glancing at a very large “100” in a graphic above the lanes promoting “Bowlers Journal 100th Anniversary.” “I want to thank Bowlers Journal for reminding me all day of my 100 game,” Daugherty said with a grin at the conclusion of the match. While all four finalists use power techniques that allow them to generate significant hooking power, the key was slower ball speed, a result of Daugherty not using his thumb in his delivery. “The difference between me and the two-handers is my ball speed,” Daugherty said. “They throw it 100 miles per hour, so I can actually do something they can’t and that’s a slow hook. I knew if I could get by Sterner, I’d have a good chance. I knew (Belmonte and Palermaa) weren’t going to bowl anything. They might say they threw some bad shots, but I didn’t think either one of them could shoot 200 because of their ball reactions. “They couldn’t get inside as far as I was because of their ball speed. Their ball would never hook from there,” Daugherty added. “As soon as Belmo tried to move in just a little, he missed the headpin. It was easy for me to do, too, but on my good shots, I could get the ball to make the turn. They couldn’t do that.” Daugherty admitted he was nervous in making his second career television appearance. “There was a lot of nerves going on the first game. The three-bagger kinda calmed me down, but leaving that 3-6-9-10 in the first frame was unnerving. I didn’t want to start
After sneaking into the stepladder finals in fourth position by four pins over Rhino Page of Dade City, Fla., Daugherty ruined Jason Sterner’s television debut, eliminating the McDonough, Ga., resident, 199-177. He then romped
with an open,” he said after successfully converting the difficult spare. “That’s all I thought about after making the show: not starting with an open and that’s not the spare you want to shoot at in the first frame.” Daugherty said he was thrilled to win his first PBA Tour title because it made him eligible to bowl in the 2013 PBA Tournament of Champions under revised eligibility rules that will only allow PBA Tour champions to enter. He had bowled in the TOC previously under rules that allowed PBA Regional title winners to participate. “I was so disappointed when they changed the TOC criteria,” Daugherty said. “I made a lot of money in that tournament the past two years, but now I’m back.”

New England Bowler’s Association Celebrates Golden Anniversary
EAST HARTFORD, Conn. - The New England Bowler’s Association kicked off its 50th anniversary season with a record setting tournament at Silver Lanes in East Hartford, Conn. on January 5th and 6th, 2013. NEBA is America’s longest running USBC sanctioned monthly scratch tournament. The event was NEBA’s 768th consecutive tournament. Founded in 1963, NEBA has been the stepping stone for many national champions and touring pros including Larry Litchstein, Paul Moser, Patrick Allen, Barry Warshafsky, Bill Spigner, Pete Couture, George LeCain, Brian Boghosian, Mike Fagan, Jimmy Pritts, Jr., Wayne Webb, and many others. “We are incredibly proud to be continuing the fine tradition of NEBA,” said Tim Healy, newly elected President of NEBA and three-time titlist. “NEBA bowlers know they can find a professionally run event with great competition and lucrative prize funds due to our high entry counts and added sponsorship money. To still be active after 50 years is a testament to the great bowlers, sponsors, and supporters of NEBA.” At the event, NEBA Champion Marcel Lessard emceed a ceremony honoring NEBA’s history, recognizing champions from all decades back to the 1960s, mentioning key events in NEBA’s evolution, and coordinating the tournament’s first-ball kickoffs. George Chicar, 91, long time NEBA fan and honorary member, threw out the first ball and scored nine. After that, 18 notable former champions including Larry Dube, George Tignor, oldest champion Butch Paternasto, Ed Roberts, USBC Masters Champion Brian Boghosian, former NEBA President and fourteen-time titlist Alex Aguiar, 1968 Champion Buddy Sequin, and first female titlist Jennifer Swanson threw out ceremonial first balls. Current and former officers were recognized for their service to NEBA. Parker Bohn III also addressed the crowd, citing the great bowlers that NEBA has produced, how the celebration reminded him of the PBA’s 50th celebration, and how the ceremony was an excellent way to honor NEBA’s past, present and future. The event drew 300 entries and paid out a record $25,000 in prize money. 64 bowlers advanced to the match-play finals with two additional cash spots paid. The winner was Jon Van Hees from Charlestown, R.I., who collected $3,000 and his sixth title. The finals were televised by CPTV. Pictures from the event can be found on the NEBA page on Facebook. “This event was truly special,” said Healy. “To see all the past champions and officers recognized was exciting. We attracted 300 entries and had full squads. And I would especially like to thank our sponsors: Ebonite, Cambridge Credit Counseling, BuddiesProShop.com, High Roller, and the Bud Light Challenge.” NEBA is rich with history. The organization was formed in 1962 in Worcester Mass. by a group of 38 bowlers from Massachusetts and Rhode Island, led by Al Javery, former pitcher for the Boston Braves. NEBA’s first tournament was in January of 1963 and had 137 entries. The entry fee was $10.00, and Joe Picanzo picked up $450 for first place. In 1965 NEBA hosted a tournament with 455 entries, a record that still stands. In 1968, NEBA held a tournament in Madison Square Garden, won by Bill Spigner. NEBA opened up membership to women in 1991, and Jennifer Swanson, current NEBA Secretary/Treasurer Becky Kregling, and Amanda Beck have captured titles. NEBA is now in its sixth decade of existence. Mike Litchstein, son of Larry, owns the most titles with 27. Four bowlers are in second place with 14 titles. Bill Webb owns the Bowler of the Year title race, having won his eighth BOY in 2012. Barry Warshafsky is the only bowler to have won titles across five decades. Larry Litchstein holds the record for most years between titles with 28. NEBA’s format has remained virtually unchanged over its storied history. The three five- game qualifying squads and single game elimination match-play finals format has stood the test of time. NEBA also has a closely enforced dress code, requires players to sign score sheets, provides a full and public financial accounting of each tournament, and keeps detailed statistics on all tournaments and players. NEBA champions are recognized at the beginning of each squad and are the only bowlers allowed to wear white shirts. NEBA is run by and for the membership with elected officers and a full and active board of directors. The event at Silver Lanes kicks off NEBA’s 50th Anniversary season. 22 events are planned throughout the New England area. Singles, doubles, and other special formats are planned. NEBA uses primarily Challenge shot patterns with an occasional Sport or Recreational pattern used. Commemorative white champion’s shirts will be awarded to all 2013 champions, and other memorabilia will also be available. NEBA’s next tournament is the point-leaders invitational event at Silver Lanes on January 20th, 2013. The next regularly schedule event is on February 9-10, 2013 at Wonder Bowl in New Bedford, Mass.
