*Terrell Owens has finally lost his damn mind.
After a disappointing end to an otherwise stellar career, the multiple-time pro bowler has decided to hang up his cleats in exchange for some bowling shoes. Yup, let it process.
Owens, who is part owner of the Dallas Strikers of the new Professional Bowlers Association league, is thinking of taking his game from the amateur lanes to the professional tour.
In May, Owens made his semi-pro debut in the United States Bowling Congress Open Championship, rolling scores of 185, 129 and 161 for a 475 total.
Now, Owens thinks it is time to take his game to the next level.
“Hopefully, one day if I get good enough I can be out here competing (on the PBA Tour),” Owens told the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. “The more I get involved and the more competitive I get with the sport, I can envision myself out there competing against these guys.”
Owens added, “Just like anybody else who doesn’t know anything about bowling, you get a house ball and throw it as hard as you can at the head pin and hope and pray for a strike.”
“These guys have been competing for years. I’m just trying to grasp and soak up as much knowledge as I can about the sport. I’m learning about angles and how different oil patterns break down as you bowl and understanding whether to make a ball change, a foot change or an eye change.”
