This was it! The final tournament of my GEICO / PBA Summer Swing experience, the Lucas Oil Bear Open.
Because of my outings at the Lucas Oil Badger Open
& Lucas Oli Wolf Open
, all I had to do was string about 120 strikes together and MAYBE, just maybe, I could of done something.
As you can see from the picture above, that didn't happen. Those guys up there are your Top 5 for TONIGHT's 6pm CBS Sports Network Telecast of the GEICO / PBA Summer Swing Lucas Oil Bear Open
from AMF Bowlero Lanes in Wauwatosa, WI.

As for the oil pattern, YES! it was a "bear" but somehow this was my best outing. Maybe it was because I had two other tournaments under me, or maybe it was because I started to pick up spares! I've said it before, I'll say it again... PICK UP YOUR SPARES!!
In the end, I finished 84th outta 100 for the Lucas Oil Bear Open.
Overall 80th out of 84 for the Lucas Oil MIlwaukee Open.
I'll take it!
It was an unbelievable experience that I will never forget! Made some new friends and earned the respect of the guys I grew up watching on TV, even some of the new guys! Who knows, with even more hard work over the summer, maybe I'll be packing my bags and bowling balls for Las Vegas
... We'll see! :)
Before I go, a very big THANK YOU to everyone who was involved. I have the best job in the world, blessed to do it and am grateful for my friends and family who supported me along the way! I got to live out a dream or a "what if", if you will.
What if I woulda joined the PBA when I was 18 and not go into radio?
I have my answer now and lemme just say, it's never to late!
Like the "shwoosh"... JUST DO IT!
