Well, the BOWLING Hall of Fame. According to Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette:
The Hall of Fame has decided to induct Jerome Bettis this year, two months after his retirement from the Steelers.
He won’t go in for his 13 years as a pro football player, not yet anyway, because he must wait five years before he’s a candidate for the Pro Football Hall of Fame. The Bowling Hall of Fame, however, does not have such a wait.
Bettis, who became an accomplished amateur bowler long before he played football, will be the first person inducted into the new Celebrities Bowling Hall of Fame, part of the International Bowling Museum and Hall of Fame in St. Louis.
The Bus, who counts a perfect 300 game he rolled in competition among his favorite moments, will be enshrined June 28 at the Bowling Proprietors’ Association of America’s International Bowl Expo at the Las Vegas Hilton.
I did not know that about Bettis. I have to admit, I’m jealous of his bowling marks (and his average, which is over 200). I’m lucky if I break 100, and would rather not calculate my average.
So I guess he can officially be called a Hall of Famer now. Congratulations to Jerome.
And yes, it is a slow free agency period for my team, why do you ask?
