WBKR Bowls For A Cure! [Video]
The 2011 Susan G. Komen Bowl for the Cure was held in Owensboro Thursday, August 4th and Friday, August 5th and, for the 3rd year in a row, WBKR was the presenting media sponsor for the event. And, for the 3rd year in a row, the station sent teams to bowlers to Diamond Lanes South in the hopes 92.5 would be well represented in the land of strikes and spares. Well, it didn't turn out that way! You saw, in the video above, that Jaclyn was rolling an embarrassing 14 through four frames of her first game. Could Chad, an accomplished "junior' bowler save the day and the station's reputation? Uh . . . well, watch for yourself!
Now, Dave Spencer's reuptation at Bowl for the Cure is no secret. Two years ago, he was defeated . . . soundly . . . by Sam the Intern, WHO IS BLIND!!!! In fact, Sam humiliated Dave and horse-whipped him by 40 pins! Since that time, the agony of defeat has burned (like acid reflux) within your favorite afternoon drive personality and he returned to the scene of his greatest embarrassment to try and right the ship. Well, sorry to report . . . his ship is the Titanic!
Adding insult to injury on the first night of the 2011 Bowl for the Cure was WBKR midday gal, Jaclyn Graves, who challenged Dave Spencer to a duel. There they stood . . . lane by lane . . . side by side . . . like that blonde girl in Jurassic Park and the T-Rex that wanted to eat her face! How did this fight to the bowling death play out???
Watching Dave Spencer crumble under the pressure was too much for Chad to handle! He had to man up and try to take down one of the blonde bimbos from Lane 15. So, he challenged Roxianne the Receptionist to a showdown. Of course, he foolishly forgot that in her first game, The Big Lebowski bowled a ridonkulous 184! While Dave Spencer proved to be the Titanic, Chad was the "little engine that couldn't!"
While the WBKR team bowled miserably, we were THRILLED to support the cause. In the last ten years, Susan G. Komen for the Cure Greater Evansville has channeled over a million dollars into Owensboro-Daviess County for programs like the Foundation for Health's Mammograms for Life. Those funds are made possible through exciting events like Bowl for the Cure and the upcoming Race for the Cure! That race, by the way, is Saturday, Sept 24th and thousands are expected to join forces in downtown Evansville and race to find a cure for breast cancer! You should be racing too!
