Brents, Branagan and Maldonado win 3rd Annual Vicki Rios Memorial Trio Tournament.

By Tyson Branagan Staff Writer On January 15th, 2011, bowlers from all over the south and southwest gathered at Tangi Lanes in Hammond, Louisiana for some good competition, fun, and most importantly, an annual tribute to the late Vicki Rios. The tournament, hosted yearly by Lee Tyrney in his 24-lane center and operated by Joey Amadeo, fills each year with a waiting list to get in for the opportunity to not only bowl for some money, but for the opportunity to win in honor of Vicki. Once again this year, the tournament quickly filled at 24 teams, but this year was different than the previous two, as Vicki's family made the trip together for the first time to attend the tournament in remembering their beloved daughter and sister, and take in some great bowling. "It was an honor to get to meet Vicki's family," tournament director Joey Amadeo said. "I am so pleased they were able to make the trip." The day got started with the Calcutta, in which $415 was raised for the scholarship fund in Rios' name, and then the action got started soon after, with each team bowling 6 games of match play qualifying, with 20 bonus pins for each individual win, and 40 bonus pins for a team victory. After 6 games, the field was cut to the top six teams, with the top two qualifiers receiving a 1-round bye in the finals. The team of Elizabeth Brents, Tyson Branagan and Shawn Maldonado, all of Texas got out to an early lead behind a 300 by Branagan out of the gate en route to an 871 start with bonus pins. It was an early indication of how high the scores would be as three teams cracked the 800 mark in game one. By the end of the 6 games of qualifying, some of the highest scores in the tournaments short history were posted, with Brents, Branagan and Maldonado leading the way at plus 1224. The team of Leslie Engeron, Kenny Winstead and Brian Bodenhemier earned the other bye in the finals by posting a score of plus 997, seven pins clear of 3rd qualifier Kristin Warzinski, Xeno Garcia and Eric Traylor. Rounding out the qualifiers were the inaugural winning team of April Ellis, Scott Monteleone and Shaun Thonn in 4th, Karyn Weschler, Byron Lau and Nicky McClantoc in 5th, and Brandy Silva, Nathan Vanputten and Mark Busscher earning the 6th and final cash spot. Brents led the entire field individually with a 1463 6game total, an average 243.83, proving that the women do, in

fact, fuel this great event. In the finals, Silva, Vanputten and Busscher defeated Warzinski, Garcia and Traylor to advance while Ellis, Monteleone and Thonn knocked off Weschler, Lau and McClantoc. In the semifinals, Brents, Branagan and Maldonado defeated Silva, Vanputten and Busscher in a close struggle of a match on a tough pair, relatively speaking, to earn their second straight finals appearance after a 2nd place finish a year ago. In the other semifinal match, Ellis, Monteleone and Thonn defeated Engeron, Winstead and Bodenheimer to give them the opportunity to bowl for their second title. In the title match, just like each year before, the match contained all the excitement anyone could ask for, and once again, came down to the 10th frame and the final bowler needing to strike to secure the victory. In a match full of strikes, Maldonado got up for his 10th frame after needing to strike his first ball of the 10th to secure the win, and much like the previous nine frames, threw another perfect strike, and would throw two more just like it to finish off a perfect

300, and earn their team $2700 for the win, plus Calcutta winnings. "They dominated the field, and finished it off by getting the win," said Amadeo, "and in true Vicki fashion, it was dramatic." "Shawn shot 300 in the final to help his team to a 794 scratch score, just enough to beat the 760 put up by their opponents," he added. "It was great to watch and be a part of." "It felt great to win," said Brents. "We came so close last year and we work so well together, it was great to finish it off this time." "I didn't know Vicki that well, but everyone down there is so friendly and fun to be

around that it just shows the type of person she was to have all these friends come together in memory of her," she added. Ellis, Monetleone and Thonn earned $1800 plus Calcutta for second. 3rd and 4th places earned $1050 plus Calcutta each, while 5th and 6th took home $690 each to round out the day. A tournament is the brain child of Rios along with Amadeo and Leisha Murr. It's a fantastic event in honor of a great person and bowler, and a friend to all that she met. As usual, it was a great success, but more than that, it was a great time by all in attendance, with some great and entertaining bowling to go along.

Danny Graf

This week's high man is Danny Graf with a 200-258-268 for an 826 series in the Denim & Duds league at Brunswick Zone Watauga. This was Danny's first 800 series and he said it was indescribable to finally shoot an 800, a real sense of relief and accomplishment. Where were you born? I was born in Dallas, we moved around a little bit when I was younger, but we ended back up in the DFW area. What ball did you throw? I used a Mission which had been a great ball for me, but I haven't been using it much lately. I had James Askins "Rejuvenate" the ball, and it worked. Shows me not to give up on a good ball to soon. Thoughts on the big series? I had been bowling good in this league but didn't expect to bowl that well. I had a bunch of my friends that there were rooting me on so that was great. They had changed the shot up at Watauga a little and I was playing a part of the lane that I don't normally play. How long do you plan to keep bowling? I bowl two leagues now, and alternate in another. I am just a league bowler and I plan to bowl as long as my body will allow me. What is your all-time favorite movie? I would have to say Slapshot, it's an older movie, and I'm a big hockey fan. What is your favorite restaurant? Anything Italian, my favorite Italian restaurant is Carrabba's. Where did you take your best vacation? My 21st birthday to Las Vegas, it was the last time that our family went somewhere together, my sister and my parents, it was a great experience. What is your favorite piece of technology? It is a tie between the Xbox and my cell phone, which is such a big part of my life. If you were the commissioner of all things bowling for a day what would you change? You can see that everyone is trying to get more youth in the game which is great. I think they need to cater to the league bowlers more and continue to get more kids involved more and make it more competitive. Favorite hobby besides bowling? Playing hockey, I played until I was 21, and now I only get to play once or twice a year now. I liked how difficult it is, the tempo and there are so many things going on with the game that most people don't even realize.

PBA Names Press Room in Honor of Hall of Famer Chuck Pezzano

SEATTLE, WA ­ Since the formation of the Professional Bowlers Association in 1958, no one has contributed more to the organization in so many different ways than PBA Hall of Famer Chuck Pezzano. In recognition of the 81-year-old Clifton, N.J., native's contributions to the PBA, his name will be permanently attached to the organization beginning with the introduction of the Chuck Pezzano PBA Press Room during the PBA Tournament of Champions at Red Rock Lanes in Las Vegas. The Chuck Pezzano PBA Press Room also will welcome the news media at all future Lumber Liquidators PBA Tour events and it will have a permanent home on pba.com for all news media visitors who visit the PBA's official website. "It think it's a pretty nice honor," Pezzano said. "It came as a complete surprise." Pezzano first became involved with the PBA as a topflight competitor and charter member; he was the first collegiate bowler in the United States to bowl an 800 series. But his legacy off the lanes far surpassed his credentials as a player as he evolved into the most prolific bowling writer in history. His weekly bowling column has been published in The Record in Hackensack, N.J., every week for more than 50 years. He has written stories for every leading bowling publication in the country. He has written books, worked as a consultant on television, movie and instructional videos, and traveled the country serving as an emcee and guest speaker at hundreds of bowling functions. And to this day, his nationallysyndicated columns appear in bowling publications across America. Pezzano also was heavily involved in PBA business affairs, running the PBA East Region for 20 years. He was secretary of the PBA Hall of Fame for nearly 20 years, and served as the organization's official historian for longer than that. Pezzano and fellow New Jersey entrepreneur Frank Esposito ­ who together created the PBA Regional program ­ were the first Meritorious Service inductees in the inaugural PBA Hall of Fame class in 1975. He was elected to the American Bowling Congress Hall of Fame in 1982, and was recipient of the Bowling Writers Association of America's Luby Hall of Fame Award in 1974. That's just a small sampling of the awards he has won. "I don't think anyone has poured more of his heart and soul into the PBA than Chuck Pezzano has over a span of more than 50 years," said PBA CEO and Commissioner Fred Schreyer. "Chuck Pezzano deserves to have his name attached to the PBA Press Room not only in recognition of all he has done for the PBA, but as an inspiration for all future bowling journalists." "Unveiling the press room for the Tournament of Champions honors all of the writers of the past who appreciated the greatness of what I always called the Firestone," Pezzano said. "(The

TNBA Singles Classic winners to receive entry and travel to USBC Championships

ARLINGTON - The United States Bowling Congress and The National Bowling Association are partnering to offer a special bonus prize for the winners of the 2011 ReedHawthorne Memorial TNBA Singles Classic. Winners in each of the tournament's divisions (men, women and seniors) will receive paid entry and airfare to either the USBC Masters, USBC Queens, USBC Senior Masters or USBC Senior Queens. "TNBA continues to be a great partner for USBC and fine example of an inclusive organization in our sport," USBC Officer of Education and Diversity Eric Kearney said. "TNBA welcomes all bowlers into the organization and makes USBC certification part of their events. We are thrilled to provide this bonus prize as way of saying thank you." Founded in 1939 by African Americans, TNBA's mission is a commitment to the principles of sportsmanship, fellowship and friendship within its ranks and throughout the world of bowling. TNBA membership and tournaments are open to everyone. "We know this has created a buzz within the TNBA bowling community and will bring out the best classic bowlers, not only TNBA members, but other USBC bowlers as well," said TNBA President Dr. Michael Boykins. "This is a win-win for both organizations. It really shows USBC's support of its affinity groups and sets up a template for future opportunities. It also gives TNBA a platform to continue to grow its membership as bowlers come out for this tournament, and hopefully, future events, too." The 2011 TNBA Singles Classic will be contested in suburban Cleveland on February 18-20 at Freeway Lanes in Wickliffe, Ohio. USBC will provide results coverage on BOWL.com. More information about TNBA and entry forms for the 2011 Reed-Hawthorne Memorial TNBA Singles Classic can be found at www.tnbainc. org.

Entry deadlines extended for 2011 Women's and Open Championships

ARLINGTON - Tournament season is right around the corner, and it's not too late to be part of the action at the 2011 United States Bowling Congress Women's and Open Championships. The entry deadline for the USBC Women's Championships has been extended to March 1, while USBC Open Championships competitors now will have until March 4 to submit their entries. The 2011 Open Championships will be the first to kick off this year as it begins its 122-day run March 4. Bowlers from all 50 states and several foreign countries will converge on the one-of-akind, 78-lane National Bowling Stadium in Reno, Nev., before the tournament concludes on July 3. More than 12,000 five-player teams already are headed for "The Biggest Little City in the World," but there's still plenty of room available for bowlers interested in trying to earn a share of the $5 million prize fund. This year, the Women's Championships will return to New York state for the first time since 1996 and settle into Syracuse's Oncenter Complex, where 48 specially-constructed lanes and custom-built, state- of-the-art scoreboards will await more than 30,000 bowlers. The event gets underway April 7 and will run for 88 days, also concluding on July 3. The Women's Championships received a successful makeover in 2010 and now features three average- based divisions that use a 100-percent handicap format. Between the new look of the venue and the new format, the Women's Championships is a can't-miss opportunity for women of all ages and skill levels. "We take great pride in our championship events, and we don't want anyone to miss out on the opportunity to compete on bowling's biggest stages," said Brian Lewis, USBC Managing Director of Tournaments. "Entries for both the Open and Women's Championships have been steady as the original deadlines approached, so we want to give undecided bowlers and captains a little more time to get their teams together and join us." For bowlers looking for extra opportunities to cash in on the championship lanes, there's always a variety of side events and jackpots available on-site, including traditional brackets, strike jackpots and side pots. There are still prime spots available for 2011. For more information, visit BOWL. com/tournaments or call the tournament entries department at 800-514-2695.

Donna Zimmerman, USBC Hall of Famer, dies at age 77

ARLINGTON ­ Donna Zimmerman, a United States Bowling Congress Hall of Famer, passed away Dec. 23, 2010 in Thousand Palms, Calif. She was 77. She was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1982 in the Superior Performance category. Zimmerman's best season came in 1965, when she captured the all events title at the Women's International Bowling Congress (now USBC) Championships and led her team to a secondplace finish at the tournament. She also won the Bowling Proprietors' Association of America doubles crown with Janet Harmon. For the 1965 season, Zimmerman was named to the Bowlers Journal International All-American team and finished second to Betty Kuczynski for Bowler of the Year honors. She was named Southern California Woman Bowler of the Year. Zimmerman was a charter member of the Professional Women's Bowling Association. She earned one professional title, the PWBA Oxnard Open in 1964, and took second in three other events. She was inducted into the PWBA Hall of Fame in 1996. She began her bowling career in her hometown of Akron, Ohio. In 1952, at age 19, she became the 27th woman in bowling history to roll a perfect game. It was the only 300 game the WIBC recorded during the 1952-53 season. One of her more interesting moments in bowling occurred at the 1959 BPAA All-Star Tournament in Buffalo, N.Y. A severe snowstorm left her without transportation, so Zimmerman and Buzz Fazio decided to run to the center. She described how they ran through the snow and managed to arrive at the center moments before the squad went to the floor. "The officials already had

the alternates dressed to take our place," Zimmerman said. "I bowled with cold air in my lungs all evening and was thankful to finish second to Marion Ladewig." That season, she also finished second at the World Invitational. She also is a member of the California WBA, Southern California Bowling Writers, Tri-County, Ohio, and Summit County, Ohio, Halls of Fame.

YES Fund welcomes five new partners

ARLINGTON ­ The Youth Education Services (YES) Fund expanded its partner base as five recognized bowling industry organizations stepped forward to join the program dedicated to youth bowling. Kegel, Luby Publishing, International Bowling Pro Shop and Instructors Association (IBPSIA), Billiard and Bowling Institute of America (BBIA) and Bowlers Journal International are now official YES Fund partners after making significant contributions. "I am extremely grateful to see these leaders in the bowling industry step forward in support of our future," Bowling Proprietors' Association of America (BPAA) Director of Youth, Chad Murphy said. "The YES Fund continues to be a way to unite all of bowling for the common goal of promoting youth involvement in the sport." When the YES Fund was created last year, an initial project was the development of a new mainstream sports model for bowlers 12 years old and younger. Preliminary pilot programs have received positive feedback and additional markets soon will have the opportunity to take part in the program. The YES Fund also has focused on providing assistance to high school bowling. In November, The YES Fund - High School Grant Program launched and will provide $2,500 to four high school programs annually. "All of the YES Fund projects are designed to keep young people engaged in bowling," Murphy said. "The outstanding commitment from our partners makes this possible and we hope more companies and individuals will join the YES Fund on this journey." The YES Fund is a joint initiative of BPAA and the United States Bowling Congress. The YES Fund also is supported by its founding partners Brunswick, Columbia 300, Ebonite, 900 Global, Hammer, QubicaAMF, Roto Grip, Storm and Track.

Michael Haugen Jr. of Carefree, Ariz., in Saturday night's elimination round, 243-172, to reach Sunday's finals where he eliminated Finland's Osku Palermaa, 246-176, and Sean Rash of Montgomery, Ill., 237-161, for the chance to meet O'Neill for the title. In the title match, Barnes started with six strikes to build a 31-pin lead after seven frames, but O'Neill refused to back down, finishing with a string of four strikes to force Barnes to mark in the 10th frame. Barnes' strike on his first shot in the clinched the title. "I feel bad for Bill," Barnes said. "He was the best bowler in the PBA World Series to get here, but I've been in his shoes a few times and I'm not going to give the trophy back. "There are a lot of guys who have won the PBA World Championship, but it's a short and distinguished list of guys who have won the Triple Crown," he added. "Right after I won, Billy Hardwick called my wife and told her to welcome me to the club." "I'm not unhappy with my performance," O'Neill said. "I threw all but one shot on line. When I needed shots to make Chris show up in 10th, they were all good. That's something I've struggled with out here. I think it's a good sign of things to come."

Six Sport bowlers will win a trip to Team USA Fantasy Camp

ARLINGTON, Texas - Members of United States Bowling Congress Sport Bowling leagues will have the chance to win an all-expenses-paid trip to an ultimate Team USA Experience Fantasy Camp. Six winners will be invited to visit the International Bowling Campus in Arlington, Texas, where they will train with Team USA coaches at the International Training and Research Center and then take on six members of Team USA in a special competition broadcast live on BOWL.com. "This is the ultimate opportunity for our Sport Bowling members to learn from the sport's best coaches and get to meet members of Team USA," USBC Managing Director of Marketing and Membership Kevin Terry said. "This program also provides even more value to Sport Bowling membership." To be eligible, USBC Sport Bowling members simply need to shoot a 200 game or higher in a USBC- certified Sport Bowling league between Jan. 1 and Dec. 31, 2011 and then fill out the entry form on BOWL. com. Two semifinalists will be selected on the first day of each month beginning Feb. 1. Starting March 15 and continuing every other month, the four most recent semifinalists will face off in an online poll on BOWL.com. For example, two semifinalists will be selected in January and two more in February. Those four will face off in the online poll starting

BOWLER FRIENDLY PRO SHOPS & SERVICES

March 15. After 14 days of voting, the top vote-getter will win a trip to the Fantasy Camp to take advantage of the technology available at the ITRC. The ITRC is home to some of the most innovative and cutting-edge coaching technologies available in the bowling industry today, including highspeed video cameras, motioncapture devices, foot-pressure sensors and goggles enhanced with cameras to show exactly where a player is looking during the approach and delivery. A DVR system also is in place and can record any video feed to let a bowler see what they did on their last shot as soon as they step off the lane. Other technology includes Computer-Aided Tracking System, known as C.A.T.S.

which consists of a series of sensors placed along the lane that measure aspects of a bowler's game such as ball speed, accuracy, launch angle, and break-point control. CA.T.S. is combined with BowlersMAP, which breaks down video of the players, to give the athletes a real-time look at their games. A United States Olympic Committee-recognized training center, the ITRC is a joint venture of USBC and the Bowling Proprietors' Association of America. It is the most innovative and advanced training, research and testing facility in the sport of bowling with 14 lanes for training and six for research and testing.

ments I've made. Thoughts on the big series? I had lost some weight recently and had been bowling really bad. Now I am figuring out what I need to do differently with my swing. I also went back to Otis Pillow to have him change the pitch in my thumb holes and started using the switch grips in the thumb hole, and that has made all of the difference. It all came together on this night. How long do you plan to keep bowling? As long as my body will let me bowl. I see the little old ladies bowling and I want to be one of them. What is your all-time favorite movie? Bad Boys, I can watch that over and over again. But I can also watch Avatar all day every day...I can always

find something I missed. What is your favorite restaurant? III Forks, I always order the filet. Where did you take your best vacation? It would have to be the Hawaiian cruise for my 50th birthday. I liked that we visited a different island every day. Maui was the best. What is your favorite piece of technology? It would have to be the iPhone, everything is there. I can do it all from my phone; everybody needs one. If you were the commissioner of all things bowling for a day what would you change? I would like to change the rewards and recognition program. The majority of bowlers are not the high average competitive bowler and most awards are for those bowlers. The lower average bowlers

don't have a great program for their achievements; it feels like everything is geared to the competitive bowler. Most bowlers do it for the fun of the sport. Favorite hobby besides bowling? Travelling. I probably take three major trips in any given year. Next month I am going back to Hawaii, and I have always loved the Caribbean islands. We were unable to contact Wendy Schneider who paced the ladies scoring contest with a 279-226-213 = 718 series in the Thursday Early Mixed league at BRC Thousand Oaks.

high school and attended several bowling center sleepover events. After college, he started bowling leagues with his sister and more league bowling would soon follow. It was at this point where he realized he needed a bowling ball with a custom fit instead of the normal house ball. His first ball was drilled by Bruce Gordon and Bea Martinez. "My first ball that was custom drilled for me was an AMF XS," said Du, who is an engineer by trade and has also worked part-time as a stock investor. "I realized the big difference in the feel from bowling with a house ball. I also noticed how both Bruce and Bea treated me as a customer and a bowler and that has stuck with me." It goes without saying that Du is always looking for a better way to serve his customers. He continues to experiment with various chemical combinations for finger and thumb slug moldings. He also has considered the possible use of clay as a molding tool for thumbs for the most accurate and precise feel. "I'm not doing my job, if I'm not trying to always improve," Du said. "I even have a budget for research and development." Du not only incorporates his motto in his pro shops, but he also displays it as a coach. Du is the voluntary head bowling coach at Plano East High School, but was only supposed to serve as an assistant coach when he joined the team in 2006. Upon his arrival, Du noticed several bowlers who were in the program just to "hang out". As a result, Du added a defined structure and the kids began to improve over time. After four weeks as an assistant coach, Du took over as head coach at Christmas break and went on to coach the boys team to its first state title and the first team title of any kind in Plano East High School history. Since then, he has led the Plano East bowling program girl's team to a state runner-up finish in 2009 and another boy's state title in 2010. "I welcome all bowlers and skill levels into my program," said Du, who also has mentored students in robotics and math. "I teach the kids to believe in themselves and I want to show them a different

way to succeed. I think every kid will amount to something special with good character and work ethic." And Du has done just that. He has seen several bowlers exit his program that have left a lasting impression on him. "I remember a young lady in 2006 that began her freshman year with an average of 150, but was just a naturally gifted athlete," Du said. "She

worked hard and eventually became the state individual runner-up during her senior year losing 279 to 277 in the championship match. She now bowls for Stephen F. Austin. Watching them earn full scholarships to college is awesome, but watching them grow to be better people and better bowlers is even better." Looks like Du, is "Working Hard for Your Success."

viewpoint, it provided everything you needed, and that's why it has been the best event in history from the start. "I appreciated it because it gave me an opportunity to meet and get to know the greatest players in the country, along with a lot of news media guys who weren't necessarily assigned to bowling," Pezzano continued. "The TOC put

bowlers on the same plane with other athletes. In the early years, first prize was $25,000 and some of the greatest players in baseball only made $40,000." "Every writer who covered the Tournament of Champions had to look for something beyond what happened on the lanes. It could be whether or not the old veteran would last until the end, a story about the new kid on the block, the Mike

Durbins (the first three-time TOC winner) who were always underrated, or the so-called discovery of a Dick Ritger, who really was one of the greatest bowlers of all time, but never got the credit until people saw him bowl in the Tournament of Champions." "I would never have thought about an honor like this," he added, "but it ranks right up there with any honor I've ever won."

show is about. First the glorification of going to jail was the first thing that stood out. Apparently Snookie got drunk on a beach and was resisting arrest. When they asked her about the incident it almost appeared as if she was proud that she got arrested. I really hope the youth of today doesn't think that getting arrested is the norm and that it's no big deal. The truth is that these "celebrities" have no real future and so it doesn't matter what's on their permanent record. After knowing how the inside of the hiring practice goes I know the difficulty of finding a job with an arrest on your record. Another scary thing is how they make a big deal out of who is having "relations" with who. Educators are throwing their hands up in the air after spending years and years preaching about abstinence and safety just to have these fools glorify sleeping around. Typically I recommend watching shows, but not this one. I would encourage you to stop watching these shows so they'll take them off the air. Plus I'm tired of seeing people with zero talent and zero skills make millions of dollars. The Tournament of Champions is the premier tournament on the PBA Tour and after seeing the format for this thing you can definitely bet that the best bowler is going to win the tournament. It features one of the most grueling formats I think I've ever seen. To start at the lowest level, a person who has a simple regional title would have to bowl 14 qualifying games just to get into the elite field. Then they would have to 20 more qualifying games to make the top 53. Then once you make the top 53 you have to bowl 14 more games just to make the top 24. THEN you have to bowl 24 games of round robin match play to make the TV show. That's 72 games on a very challenging condition against the best of the best. I know just how hard that is to do physically, but the mental part, the ups and downs; it would be exhausting as well. Kudos to whoever comes out on top in this one!

For the last ten years, January has meant one thing; the season opener of American Idol. It's a little different this year than other year's as this is the first season without Simon Cowell, and I just wasn't sure what to expect. This year, Aerosmith's lead singer, or more importantly Liv Tyler's dad, Steven Tyler and Jennifer Lopez have joined the judges panel alongside Randy Jackson. In the first couple of episodes it became apparent that Randy is leading the way and seems to deliver most of the insults and bad news. Jennifer is more like Paula Abdul as she seems to have a really hard time saying no or crushing dreams. Steven Tyler is growing on me, but currently he seems like a one trick pony. Everything he has to say seems to include him screaming some ridiculous high note like he was singing a song. In past years it appeared that there weren't very many sixteen-year-olds, but this year it seems like the best talent are

the young ones. It also doesn't seem like they are showing a ton of the bad singers and are more focused on the good ones. Although I like to see the good ones I find that most people that I talk to like to see the train-wrecks more than the real talent. I'm really curious to see what the first ratings without Simon will be. Recently I've started to see an ugly trend with television. My wife Nikki directed me to some of the reality shows on MTV and some of them are really disturbing. More of a disturbing trend are the ages of the viewers of these shows. As a parent of a 12 year old girl I'm always telling her not to watch these sleazy shows, however, amazingly her TV always seems to just happen to be MTV while Jersey Shore is on when I go in her room. I've never actually watched an episode of Jersey Shore, but last night my wife was watching it and it was extremely disturbing to see what this
