Angie Colip: Blizzard allows time to keep up with Team USA

I am hoping that everyone is staying safe and warm during this nasty weather. You know that the roads have to be treacherous for a bowling center to close, and that is exactly what happened this week.

Cooper’s Sport Bowl was closed for two days this week, and that never happens. Even on holidays, they are open.

Thinking of the safety of their patrons, they closed the doors and cancelled league play. Some leagues have built in “snow” days, while others will either make it up at the end of the season or opt not to make up this week. This is determined by each league individually.

While being snowed in and with no work to get to, we spent time watching bowling on the computer. The Team USA trials were held this week in Las Vegas. It was broadcast live via Bowl.com.

After five days with six games each, the top three qualifiers met in a step ladder final with a guaranteed spot on the team. Each day was a different sport shot and proved to be difficult at times.

While only four lanes with five to six on a pair were being broadcast live, there was also live streaming of every lane. If you wanted to watch a particular bowler, there were real-time score sheets.

We were able to watch the featured lanes and also keep track of our favorites. Bowlers moved lanes after every game, giving us quite the variety of bowlers. It was interesting to see how the amateurs stacked up to the professionals.

Chris Barnes walked away the winner of the men’s division with Mike Fagan runner-up and John Szczerbinski finishing third. Rounding out the team based upon resumes are Bill O’Neill, Tommy Jones, John Janawicz, AJ Johnson and Sean Rash.
