…who made the US open final! Lots of experience in the top 5!
Tonight opens the new exhibit “50 Years of Womens’ Pro Bowling” at the Bowling Hall of Fame and Museum. 15 years of my adult life has been spent with this sport, and I am proud to be part of its history.
Symbolically representative of women’s professional bowling in so many ways, the movie “A League of their Own” touches me still, and I present here one of the best scenes, enjoy!
Nice to go to bowl.com and see a new generation of competitors making their mark. These college/young girls are competition-sharp, which is the most important advantage they have over some of the seasoned veterans. I am partial to my protege/student Elise Bolton from my area here in Florida competing in her first Open event, and doing well at this point. Elise keep it up! Feel a bit saddened I cannot attend the unveiling of the new “Professional Women’s Bowling, 50 Years” exhibit opening June 29th at Bowling Headquarters. Long in the making, I hope to visit it very soon (with family in hand ) Good luck to everyone in Dallas!
Something mysteriously occurred about a month ago. My 1999 US Open highlight video disappeared from the web. Entirely.
First, I discovered it gone from Youtube, then of course the link here did not work. I have a decent ability to track down the most abstract web items, and my search was in vain. My buddies @ the PBA Forum had nothing to add in my search. I have the ability to pull up old web pages from previous incarnations of kimadler.com (did you know I had a blog on my site waay back in 2001-2002? Blogs were not common then) I can sift through entire websites that don’t exist anymore. But the dang video was gone! If it were as simple as an ESPN TV rights issue, then all of my bowling videos and videos of all pro bowlers, and as a matter all sports TV shows on Youtube would be gone as well.
So, my DH, the original digitizer of my clip, dug out the original video from our own personal archives. I have re-uploaded it to Youtube, as well as here. Did not intend on this becoming such a big deal…well, it became a mission. (So…I win now)

and I care. I am watching faithfully Lance pull off an 8th victory, and July days are sweet! His cancer fight is stuff of legends. Give others a chance at a full recovery here by signing Lance’s Livestrong initiative: http://www.kintera.org/TR.asp?a=8dJFKVNyEeKHK0L&s=aiLKJXMIKnJWK0MJIuE&m=eqIHLXNzEfL1F
He’s looking for 30,000 to sign before the TdF ends in about a week so that an anonymous donator will match $30,000 dollars.
Healthcare is such on the forefront these days. Let’s include Cancer research and treatment, as it it is the #1 disease killer…and that is my soapbox for the day.
My little (or towering, depending upon your vantage point) student Elise Bolton is at JOG bowling her heart out. Give her a shout out and watch bowl.com for JOG standings!
Away from studying & work, I have found fresh air and gardening….more specifically in roses. I though high maintenance would be too much, espeically looking out my back window. But, then I found, appropriately: “Strike it Rich”: Fortuniana rootstock in a Hybrid Tea, perfect in FL conditions:
How could I resist? Good luck to all at the USBC Queens/National this week: I am thinking of you all…
