Liz is a great bowler and a very nice person. I have rolled against Liz many times and she has always been very focused, effective and professional. Personally, I was not the least bit surprised to see her make the show and do as well as she did. Although there will be a lot of negative feedback from male bowlers who do not care for females entering their "playing field", the truth is that this show, undoubtedly, will post a huge viewing audience. I was bowling in a tournament myself yesterday and can tell you that the entire house was watching this historical PBA final. The comments were mixed with some people saying "how did a woman get in there" to "she is an awesome bowler and deserves to win", but one thing is for sure, it leaves a glimmer of hope to all women bowlers that maybe this will create a light at the end of our very dark tunnel. There is going to be a lot of talk about whether Liz' performance will be a plus or minus for a possible women's tour. As most of you know, their are plans in the making for a revitalized women's tour, and it will be interesting to see whether potential sponsors will now say "wow, these women can bowl, maybe they need to have their own tour again" or will the bowling world say "if they can bowl that well against the men, maybe the PBA should be creating more events for them". There has never been any real sponsor interest in the women's tour, be it poor marketing, administration, etc., and my only hope, as a prior PWBA member, is that somehow this will spark some interest in women's bowling. There is nothing more discouraging than having elite women bowlers, of which I consider myself one, with nothing to compete in. High school and collegiate bowling is on a slow rise, but after college, our younger counterparts have no where to go.

Mary Allen and other scratch women bowlers: I am helping to host a scratch women's open in Western PA, if anyone would like more information, contact me via private message and I will get the same to you. The event is June 17 and 18, 2005.
