-Terrell Owens Makes Professional Bowling Debut
Terrell Owens was a six-time Pro Bowler, but now he's trying to cut it as a pro bowler.
The former NFL star receiver hit the lanes at the United States Bowling Congress Open Championships this week, and all things considered, he did pretty well. Representing Bowlers Journal International of Chicago, Owens rolled games of 185, 129 and 161.
"The first game went pretty well," Owens told Bowl.com. "I'm still new to this, so when I saw some of the guys switching balls, I felt I should switch, too. I probably should have stayed with the same ball. I ended up going back to the first ball I used and made some other minor adjustments with my feet and eyes."
Owens is the celebrity owner of the Dallas Strikers, one of eight teams in the new PBA League. An avid bowler, the 39-year-old Owens has showed off his skill at charity tournaments the past few years. He had some time off this week, and so he decided to hit the lanes.
Here's a look at T.O. in action:
Afterwards, Owens said learning how to roll strikes isn't all that different from training for football.
"It's all about repetition," Owens said. "You're only going to get out of it what you put in. I'm starting to get in a rhythm and starting to bowl a little more, so it'll come in time. I just tried to focus on some of the things I've been taught and dialed in on that."
