05:53 PM ET 05.04 | With his NFL career almost certainly behind him, wide receiver Terrell Owens is getting his competitive juices out in a different manner, as he recently made his professional bowling debut. "I have a lot of stuff going on right now, but there happened to be a break in my schedule," Owens told Bowl.com. "I wanted to experience this tournament, and the experience was good. I'm really into bowling, and I like it a lot." Owens might not want to put too many eggs in that basket though, as he finished with a 475 series, bowling games of 185, 129 and 161 in the United States Bowling Congress Open Championship.

I don't know why, but for some reason I actually found that statement amusing.

Im pretty sure the money's not bad at all, especially considering all you have to do is bowl. If I recall correctly a PBA tourney can pay up to $50,000, which is a nice return on a day's worth of ball rolling.

Not sure how many tournaments in a PBA season, though.

475 Series. That's below average in a Tuesday night beer league.

I remember bowling around 129 in grade school, with zero training or experience.

I don't know if I'd call this a "choice".

May 5, 2013  09:23 AM ET

I hope someone takes a bowling ball and rams it down this worthless ******'s throat.
