BELMONTE-RASH MATCH TO KICK OFF PBA’S 2011-12 ESPN SCHEDULE ON DECEMBER 4

By Bill Vint - PBA After finishing fourth and eighth, respectively, in the AMF Australian Masters in Sydney, Sean Rash of Montgomery, Ill., and Australia’s Jason Belmonte have locked up a head-to-head “grudge match” that will launch the PBA Tour’s 2011-12 television season on ESPN on Sunday, Dec. 4. A Rash-Belmonte re-match has been anticipated since their emotional “bottlegate” confrontation during the GEICO PBA Team Shootout in June in Chicago. During a Team Shootout match, Rash angrily responded to Belmonte after he apparently made a noise with his plastic water bottle while Rash was on the approach, preparing to make a key shot. Belmonte later dismissed the incident as an accident, but neither player was apologetic, and both promised to resolve any differences on the lanes when they meet again. That meeting will occur as the first match of the men’s finals of the World Bowling Tour presented by the PBA, which will air at 1 p.m. ET on Dec. 4 on ESPN. Rash qualified second in the seasonlong WBT points standings behind points leader Mika Koivuniemi of Hartland, Mich., while Belmonte finished third on the points list. Hong Kong’s Wu Siu Hong (coached by former PBA touring player Purvis Granger) won the Australian Masters men’s title and a $25,000 first prize with a 226-207, 259-243 victory over Mike Fagan of Patchogue, N.Y. Koivuniemi finished third, Rash fourth, Dan MacLelland of Saginaw, Mich., was fifth, and Belmonte eighth. Two-time PBA Women’s Series title winner Shannon Pluhowsky of Kettering, Ohio, won the Australian Masters women’s title, defeating Sweden’s Sandra Andersson, 236-181, 210-181, but the second-place finish was enough for Andersson to knock PBA Tour titlist Kelly Kulick out of the WBT women’s finals. Kulick and WBT women’s points leader Carolyn Dorin-Ballard did not bowl in Australia. Dorin-Ballard won the WBT women’s points title followed by Sweden’s Nina Flack and Andersson. The WBT Women’s Finals presented by the PBA stepladder finals will follow the men’s telecast on ESPN on Dec. 4.

What do non-bowlers have against bowling? Nothing, really. Except opinions formed because of their ignorance of the sport as a competitive challenge. Almost everyone bowls or has bowled at one time or another. It’s a sure thing that everyone who bowls or has bowled has scored a strike. A strike in bowling is it. That’s the best you can do on a single ball. Yet, a child can roll as perfect a strike as any pro. Most people never hit a home run, throw or catch a touchdown pass, score a knockout, sink a long one, score any kind of goal, or actually do any of the one shot things tahte constitute precision or perfection in a sport. Therefore, because they can do what the top pros strive all their lives to do, toss a strike, and to must it usually happens the first time they go bowling, they tend to look down on bowling as a serious or difficult sport. It is only when they try to put a few strikes together that they appreciate how difficult it can be. And when they see a wide assortment of spares, with pins peeking at them from all areas of the lane, they quickly realize that successful spare shooting is also an art. Add to that many paths a bowling ball takes, from gutter to gutter particularly in the hands of a novice, and the degree of difficulty multiplies. There’s a look of monotony to the sport unless you’re into it. Watching bowling is not the same as bowling, Bowling casually is not the same as worrying about it, and even the serious non-pro bowler can’t know what enters a pro’s mind and body when it means his livelihood. High scoring trends haven’t helped. In no other sport can the best in the world move into a town, and find that local juniors

carry the same kind of average as the best. Long explanations of how lane conditions can cary and cause such situations gain short attention. Bowling is the only sport I know of in which pros can be barred from amateur tournaments which pay more money than the pro tournaments. Read that again. Now make believe you’re a sports editor or a radio or TV station sports director who knows nothing about bowling. He finds all this hard to believe. And it is only through a long process of education that he can be convinced, that though bowling might be a little strange in ways, there is a method to all madness, and that the final product today is the result of a long, historical march. I’ve seen a few heads shake when non-bowlers discover there are many bowlers who don’t know how to keep score. Because there are automatic scorers and someone always willing or able to keep scores, you can get by for as long as you wish without knowing too much. That’s bad. Bowling is a sport in which participants range from those who have no athletic ability at all to those who could star in any type of athletic endeavor. It’s a sport in which you can slide by not knowing a thing about it, yet one you can spend your while life learning more and more about. Maybe bowling is too many different people, and that could be why it doesn’t have any real enemies among non-bowlers, but neither does that many diehard supporters and backers. Make yourself a more educated bowler in every way. It will be a fascinating and rewarding experience. Then, slowly but surely, impart it to that non bowler relative, friend, or stranger.

J o a n Ta y l o r ’ s Te n P i n R a p . . . .
This may become an annual rant, like my every-two year “Bowling should be an Olympic Sport” rant. But this one is about the Bowling Proprietors Association of America (BPAA) Celebrity Bowling Hall of Fame. And this year’s inductee will be (wait for it) Miley Cyrus. Last year they opened up voting to the general public, apparently comprised of hundreds of thousands of teenagers. The top two front-runners were Taylor Swift and Justin Bieber, with Swift taking the “title.” This was based on her being “seen at bowling centers periodically with friends.” Bieber had a music video set in a bowling center…one video. The kicker was that Swift was presumably on tour or in a recording studio during what should have been her induction in Arlington, TX in June,. But the BPAA announced she sent an acceptance video. Not so. Someone took the famous Kanye West awardus-interruptus Video Music Awards scene and dubbed in some lunacy about how Taylor Swift didn’t deserve the (bowling) Hall and that Beyonce should have gotten the bowling celebrity honors. So sad. And now based on “Miley Cyrus is certainly a busy girl, but when she’s not filming or recording, she’s been spotted at various bowling centers with celebrity friends, including fellow nominees Nick Jonas and Justin Bieber, and charity bowling events,” and a whopping “popular” vote, Cyrus will be inducted (whether on hand or not) into the Celebrity Bowling Hall of Fame. In addition to Bieber who again came in second place, nominees were: Nick and Joe Jonas, Jeff Bridges, Lady Gaga (what?), Bill Murray, Li’l Wayne, Michael Jordan (oh that’s right, his name was on a bowling ball back in the day), Jimmy Fallon and (ugh) Kim Kardashian. Never mind that NASCAR star driver Jeff Gordon hosts a bowling fundraiser for his charity, the Riley Hospital for Children, every year featuring PBA stars. Or that Michael J. Fox “trained” for his role in “Greedy” by enlisting Johnny Petraglia to coach Fox, and by appearing at Brunswick Zone Carolier Lanes for an exhibition, and attending a pro tournament. Despite my nausea at the movie, Kingpin was centered around our beloved sport and featured Bill Murray, Woody Harrelson and Randy Quaid. Going back to the 1970s, “Dreamer” was also about a professional bowler whose dream it was to earn enough money bowling to open his own center. So why didn’t Tim Mathesen get a nomination for the celebrity hall? Who doesn’t remember Jeff Bridges as “The Dude” in The Big Lebowski? There was plenty of bowling in that movie. Remember that TV show “Ed?” Why not nominate actor Tom Cavanaugh who week after week portrayed a bowling center owner? Rockaway Lanes’ own Ken Yokobosky even served as an advisor and “stunt double” for that show, shot in New Jersey. So for a pop singer/actress and country singer/actress to join the likes of Jerome Bettis and Lynne Swann, it’s a bit insulting. If the BPAA gave an award to a celebrity “for distinguishing yourself by bowling with friends,” I wouldn’t be as offended as I am. On the other side of this fence is the fact that in answer to “What were they thinking?” I came up with a theory. That bowling and the BPAA are trying to “appeal to a younger demographic” much like the PBA is with their cheerleaders and such. A “younger demographic” is fine for Bowlopolis, Junior Team USA, the Junior Masters tournament, birthday parties, and glow bowling. If you market it, they will come. As for Smiley Miley, maybe if “Party in the USA” had been “Bowling in the USA” I wouldn’t have been so harsh. So what is the solution? Ask a group who knows show biz and bowling to come up with nominees. Can you imagine if other Halls of Fame listed nominees based on sightings at a ball park or football stadium? What would Cooperstown and Canton be like? I shudder at the thought. And by the way, that younger demographic won’t comprise the majority of attendees at the BPAA national meeting, seminars, and Bowl Expo who will be on hand next year in Reno, NV to see the induction, if there is one. There will be some families, and a handful of teenagers, but not enough to make a big to-do of 18-year-old Miley’s induction. But Jeff Bridges, or Michael J. or Tim Matheson? Any one would be great and worthy. I guess that makes me “The Dreamer.”
