Bowling Specials on Black Friday

Year after year, my wife wakes up long before the sun, and navigates out through the crowd of other bargain hunters, trying to find all those special deals. I however, refuse to believe that the money you save is worth the risk of other rude shoppers pushing you over and breaking your arm (yes I saw this happen). For this reason I do all of my Black Friday shopping from home. However, you may be asking yourself, is anyone having a Black Friday sale on bowling equipment? Well the answer is yes! If you click on the link below, you will find yourself at the best website for bowling equipment, and their Black Friday sale has already started!

How Do You Bowl a 900? Ask Andrew Teall

I am no stranger to witnessing perfect games being bowled. The truth be told, I have bowled a couple myself. However, I have never seen anyone in my life bowl a perfect series. I was not even sure it was possible with the possibility of leaving a ringing ten pin or stoning an eight pin on what seemed to be a perfect ball. And then, Mr. Mushtare supposedly bowled multiple 900s, begging the question if he ever really bowled one. There have been very few 900 series bowled in the history of bowling, and he bowls three in a year? Well, just last week, it appears as if another 900 has been bowled. Andrew Teall of Medford, NJ has done the nearly impossible, rolling three perfect games for the perfect series. I have not found any info yet as to whether the score has been approved, but I have read in multiple forums that it was true with lots of witnesses. Congratulations Andrew!

Share 50000 Dollars With the New Bounty Hunter From 900 Global

There are many bowling ball companies out there making some awesome bowling balls these days. The problem is picking the bowling ball that is right for you. For most of us mere mortals out there that cannot repeat shots like the pros, just about any high performance bowling ball will do. Few, however, will offer to pay you money if you succeed using their equipment. That is until 900 Global came along. With their new bowling ball called the Bounty Hunter (which Walter Ray Williams used to win his 46th title), if you bowl a 300 you split a pot of 50,000 dollars. Sounds pretty good doesn't it? At the moment this article was published, there have been roughly 84 300s thrown, which means those 84 people will each get around 594 dollars. Now if you ask me, that just puts the icing on the cake after rolling a perfect game! To check out this bowling ball and have your chance of sharing in the pot, follow the link at the top of this page.

The 2009-2010 PBA Tour Season is Underway

So it is official. Walter Ray Williams has won yet another title. I guess 45 times was not enough. It my have not been a live show, but was it awesome to watch. Armed with his brand new 900 Global Bounty Hunter bowling ball, he defeated Chris Barnes 238-230 for his first Tour win after turning 50 years old. He is now eligible to compete in the Senior Tour, but why would he if he can still be a champion on the regular tour? There is certainly more money to be made on the regular tour, and as long as he feels good and keeps making shows, then he is in the right spot.

I must say that I am very disappointed that Bill O’neill did not get his victory, but after making seven television shows last season with two runner-up finishes, I fell pretty confident that he will taste victory this year on the PBA tour.

Many people this time of year are excited about football, but I am just as excited about bowling on Sundays. This is a great opportunity to see how the pros bowl on those difficult lane conditions, and what adjustments they make. I am hoping to one day have the knowledge they have on bowling ball layouts, surface, and how to play different lane conditions.

Now to the most exciting part about bowling being back on tv. Next week for the Scorpion Championship, they are going to show coverage of the entire tournament from start to finish, including the qualifying round and the match play events. It is basically a way of seeing how a PBA Tour event is like. My guess is that it is more of an advertisement to get people to sign up for their service called XTRA FRAME which shows this type of coverage for every event, and for only 7.99 per month or 64.99 per year.

Now that the shows are starting, I cannot wait to see how this year’s tour turns out, from who will win, rookie of the year, player of the year, etc. I love to watch bowling and can only wish that maybe sometime they will bowl a tour even in the Southeast so I can go watch one!
