LAS VEGAS (AP) — Terrell Owens has finally found a sport where he doesn’t have to worry about getting the ball. T.O. wants to be a professional bowler.

“You never know where it may go,” Owens said. “For me the sky is the limit with my ability and what I can do.”

The former wide receiver still believes he should be on the football field on Sundays, catching passes like he did not so long ago. He’ll spend this weekend trying to make his mark on the lanes instead.

Owens doesn’t appear to be all that good at bowling, either, though he does claim a high game of 288. He did compete on a team sponsored by the Bowlers Journal this summer at the United States Bowling Congress Championship, the largest amateur event in the country. Owens posted a combined score of 1,508 for team, singles and doubles for a 167 average.

Owens gets a chance to do that this weekend when he competes in the PBA World Series of Bowling at the South Point hotel’s bowling center.
