Mets pitcher Shaun Marcum enjoys bowling in his spare time, and I think it’s safe to assume that the right-hander is pretty good at it too, seeing that the incredibly cool, red eyed skull with a hole in its head bowling ball being shown off is the one he uses strictly for picking up spares, according to Mets PR man Jay Horowitz. This is Shaun Marcum’s new bowling ball. He uses it just for spares. It doesn’t spin as much as his strike ball. twitter.com/Jay_HorwitzPR/… — Jay Horwitz (@Jay_HorwitzPR) March 20, 2013 If that’s the one Marcum uses just for spares, I wonder what his “strike” ball looks like? Probably contains the heart of a grizzly bear that he killed with his bare hands or something. If intimidation factor is huge in bowling, then Shaun Marcum and his menacing bowling ball have it in spades. [MLB via Hot Clicks] The post Mets P Shaun Marcum has a crazy skull bowling ball he uses only for spares appeared first on Last Angry Fan.

  • It is obvious this writer knows nothing about the sport of bowling and seems to be condescending towards it. There are several athletes from the MLB, NBA, NFL, NASCAR and others who enjoy the sport of bowling.

    It appears the Mets pitcher does understand the game as he has a spare ball, but the "coolness" of the equipment does not mean you are an adequate bowler. You can buy the best of equipment out there and still suck.

RUMORS & GOSSIP

Kyrie Irving: Cavaliers would have won an NBA title if healthy

There’s no arguing that losing Kyrie Irving hurt the Cleveland Cavaliers against the Golden State Warriors in the NBA Finals.

Are LeBron, Cavs just playing teenage games?

Follow us on Twitter @CrossoverNBA We all knew a few of them growing up. Odds are, you know a few of them now too. They’re the folks that crave some sort of drama, controversy, and say things like, “I try to avoid it, but it finds me.” It’s a mildly rough way to live, it’d seem like. Which brings us very quickly to the Cleveland Cavaliers and Lebron James. Whatever...

Bucks president threatens move to Vegas, Seattle

Everything seems to be headed in the right direction for the up-and-coming Milwaukee Bucks. Fresh off a playoff appearance this past season, Milwaukee was able to add a top-end free agent in the form of Greg Monroe to an already talent-laden roster. Unfortunately, politics in the state of Wisconsin could potentially dampen the good feelings around the organization in recent months...
