Owens makes his bowling debut

Not being in a NFL camp is killing Terrell Owens but he is finding ways to keep busy.

Owens made his semi-pro bowling debut in the United States Bowling Congress Open Championships debut at the National Bowling Stadium. Owens didn't bowl great but he wasn't terrible either. Owens bowled games of 185, 129, and 161 for a total of 475. I know it's not all that but it's better than I can do so I won't make any jokes about him.

"The first game went pretty well," Owens told "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."

As the celebrity owner of the Dallas Strikers, one of eight five-player teams in the new Professional Bowlers Association League, Owens has spent a lot of time around the lanes this year. He recently decided to take his game up a notch, working with several coaches and PBA bowlers such as Mark Baker and Norm Duke.

"I have a lot of stuff going on right now, but there happened to be a break in my schedule," Owens said. "I wanted to experience this tournament, and the experience was good. I'm really into bowling, and I like it a lot."

At least it sounds like he has something to do to occupy his time nowdays instead of trying to sell himself to an NFL team.
