***** PBA Adds Instant Replay *****
National newspapers that don't usually cover bowling have seen fit to cover the PBA's decision to add instant replay to its decision-making process regarding questionable calls. For more information, check out the PBA press release at:
***** PWBA Updates--New Links *****
The Greater Atlanta Open airs on ESPN2 (The Deuce) on Tuesday, February 16th, at 4 PM ET. It reairs on Sunday, February 21 (Monday morning if you prefer), on ESPN at midnight ET.
Some people have had trouble getting timely updates from the www.pwba.com site, so if you visit the PWBA site, and can't find the results you are looking for, here's another venue to get round-by-round results. Be warned: the site posts winners before the telecast airs, so if you want to be surprised, don't look!
***** Jerome Bettis to Open ABC Nationals Tournament *****
ABC National Tournament opening ceremonies will feature Pittsburgh Stealers' star running back Jerome Bettis Feb. 13 at the Encounter in Syracuse, N.Y. Bettis whose bowling career boasts a lifetime average over 200 and one 300 game, is the first in what ABC hopes to be an annual ambassador to the sport--celebrities who also bowl.
Now if AMF could only show Michael Jordan bowling!
