BowlPortland: How do you feel about winning this award?
Pin Whisperer: What can I say, I feel overwhelmed. I never thought this could happen to me. Literally years of proving an inability at bowling, and then this. Anything is possible.
BP: You seemed to really pick it up when the lights went down. Any comment?
PW:I didn’t see it coming and, when it came, it rocked my world… I mean, my eyes suck as it is, really bad. Night driving can get scary. Night bowling changes everything.
BP: What’s your pregame ritual?
PW: Beer. And I meditate and find my inner spirit animal, a squirrel. Nuts are a real driving force.
BP: Where do you think it will go from here?
PW: Nowhere to go but down, or status quo. I imagine I have some serious soul searching in the coming weeks.
BP: Any other comments?
PW: I’d like to take this opportunity to thank everyone that has helped me along the way, family, friends, my squirrel spirit, buddha, brigid, the list goes on. Just ask yourself, when you look back year later, do you want to ask yourself what it would have been like had I been bowler of the week … go out there it make your life happen now while you can … Bowlers Unite!
