High Rollers

Some people say bowling is just an excuse to drink beer and eat nachos while pretending to do something athletic. And those people are usually right. But sometimes the sport is about more than just booze and grub.

Celebrities will bowl to promote drowning-prevention awareness at the Stars and Strikes Celebrity Bowling Bash on Sunday, July 10, at Brunswick Via Linda Lanes. Participants include NFL star Seth Joyner and baseball greats Ferguson Jenkins, Tony Phillips, and Jay Bell, making for an evening that’s bound to be better than your usual amateur bowling night.

Bring out your A-game for the event and perhaps you could impress fellow bowler and Miss Arizona 2010 Katy Bulkley with your best Kingpin quotes. Just make sure you don’t say, “You're on a gravy train with biscuit wheels,” even if it’s totally true.
