Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker LaMarr Woodley has plenty of experience knocking down quarterbacks. His newest venture involves knocking down something else altogether.

Bowling pins.

According to the Associated Press, Woodley has become an owner in a new bowling league run by the Professional Bowlers Association. The eight-team league has Woodley, former Steelers running back Jerome Bettis, free agent receiver Terrell Owens and Los Angeles Clippers point guard Chris Paul all involved.

Woodley will be the celebrity owner of the Pittsburgh Jack Rabbits. The league will begin its inaugural season next month in Detroit.

Woodley is expected to play for the Steelers this week after missing the last two games with an ankle injury.

    TO has no money so I can only assume his role in this venture will be as the pin monkey

    Being a pro football player must be cool.

    I’ve always thought that many NFL Players must be great bowlers since every year they announce that the best players are Pro Bowlers.

    Fun fact: Jerome Bettis has bowled a perfect game, and is an honorary member of the Bowling Hall of Fame.

    I sincerely hope the players didn’t put too much of their own money into this venture.

    Well the pittsburgh Jack Rabbits have more of a chance of winning a Championship than the pittsburgh steelers do during the next 5 to 10 years.

    I think thats great. With a group like that i am sure they could raise a lot of money for charity too. Maybe a celebrity tournament.

    Owens will be the celebrity owner of the Dallas Deadbeats.

    The Pittsburgh Jack Rabbits? Yeah, I’ve seen literally hundreds of jack rabbits running around Pittsburgh…..??

    Let’s just hope they can raise a ton of money for worthy charitable causes.

    One thing you can always count on; if a post has a Pittsburgh connection The Three Stooges…randallflagg, ravenator and stoogy will have a comment. Jealous much guys? Still waiting for stoogy’s brilliance to be posted.

    However, I would be jealous too if my team just get smoked by the 38-year old 3rd string quarterback of the team we only wish we could emulate in our own house. Not to mention the fact your team is circling the drain and descending to the level of their true abilities.

    As the Nest Burns…

    GO STEELERS!
