Internet Challenge #16

Another challenge!

I have absolutely no idea if this exists, but find me some pro bowling smack talk (from pro bowlers, or fans of pro bowlers)!


UPDATE:





Flannery Alden, with 2 IC points for some pro bowler smack talk!
Big names absent, but smack talk isn't!
"Some bigger-name bowlers are missing on both sides for the first time in quite awhile," Wheeler said. "Sorry, Peoria. Wait 'til next near, or the next . . . or the next.

"The Cup will stay on the Pekin side of the river!"

Peoria captain Mike McBride also likes his team's chances.

"Unlike the Cubs, we'll be able to seal the deal this year," he said. "The new players will be able to fit in pretty well, and there's enough leadership and experience on the team that's going to pull us through."


So the article title actually contains the words "smack talk", and the bowlers are ripping on the Chicago Cubs as well. Oh, you rascals!



Randal G scores an IC point for an article on Pete "Crotch Chop" Weber.
Brash, raunchy Weber is just what bowling needs
He's introduced trash talk to bowling on TV. He trash talks his opponent. Trash talks the pins. And he's given raucus attention to the fans, whipping them into a frenzy in bowling centers across the country. Just check some of his highlights (or lowlights, depending your perspective):

— Yelling in upstart pro Michael Haugen's face after icing a title match in December: "There's no way he's gonna get his first (title) against me. No way!"

— To classy, Hall-of-Fame bowler Parker Bohn III before a TV match: "You are going down!"

— Screaming after several big strikes on all his TV appearances, all accompanied with fist pumps: "What do you think about that one?!"

— Psyching himself up after nailing down a win against Jason Couch on Sunday, but with a few more frames to go in the match: "Bury him."

— After winning his first title of the year, he addressed the home audience directly: "I am P-D-W! And I am back!"





I can't count the additional submission from Flannery, or the one from Imaginary Reviewer, as they don't quite qualify as pro bowler smack talk.



I'll give one IC point to Beckeye for the following video. I can't award points for the other videos, as I don't think they are pro bowlers, nor do they appear to be talking smack about pro bowlers. Come to think of it, I don't know if the bowlers in this video are pros either, but I'll assume they are based on their athletic physique.

I don't know if this counts as smack talk, but it sure is good gripe

"[for] gutter balls, I tell people, "You know that they clean those out at night, you don't have to""

Good ole Peter Weber.

Some douchebag.

Some dude taking a break from mopping to trash talk.

The most unattractive bunch of guys ever assembled.

Isn't professionalism in the eye of the beer holder?

I guess this means I can't post multiple clips of Big Ernie McCracken fucking with Roy Munson.

Where's my bonus points for being first?

Flannery Alden said...

Oh...duh...nevermind. I can't count.
