Timeout with ... Darryl James

Tuesday, June 24, 2008

Sport: Bowling

Age: 46

Resides: Cape Girardeau

Occupation: Manager of West Park Lanes

Nickname: Fuzz

If you could trades places with anyone, who would it be: A professional bowler. Just being good enough to be out on the pro tour, those guys are awesome

How do you celebrate a win: High five and go home

Best part of your job: Being out here with the people who enjoy the sport of bowling. It's probably watching the little guys, 6 and 7 years old, then when they get 18 or 19 and bowl like a pro, they're awesome

Sport you'd like to try: NASCAR

What do you like about bowling: It's a relaxation for me because I enjoy it. I've been bowling since I was 6 years old. It's just like golf, when you get it in your blood, you just can't let go

Favorite memory: When I got my first bowling ball. We went to K-Mart ... and the ball was $12.99. My dad wouldn't buy it. The guy came out and said if we wait until Monday, this was like on a Thursday, they're gonna sell it for $8.99. My dad would not buy the ball from him, so we went back and got it on Monday
