In the strange but true department comes this really odd story from Bowl.com. Apparently every October the PBA holds its Masters Tournament, which boasts over $350,000 in prize money. The event was held at Miller Park in Milwaukee before (2004), but this year there's a new presence. The WWL.....(dunh dunh dunh!)
Miller Park typically features Brewers players scurrying around the base paths or hustling to make a fine defensive play against their National League opponents. On Sunday, Oct. 28, 2007, fans will experience an athletic competition of a new kind as the United States Bowling Congress Masters takes place at Miller Park with ESPN providing television coverage of the finals.Hmmm, this smells an awful lot like Arena League to me. Let's think this through shall we? ESPN has the TV rights to the PBA. ESPN televises tourneys on Sundays when Football is on. ESPN then creates a crazy live event with mascots and calls it an "athletic competition". Methinks this is all too similar to a certain "Netted Footballing League's" coverage.
Alls fair in love and programming I guess, and hopefully that dude's shirt will make an appearance.
