Up Front Some of that competitive nature was


on display at Chicago Bears cornerback Charles Tillman’s annual charity bowling event in Chicago in June. The event, Charles Tillman’s Celebrity Pro Bowler Tournament, was held at Kings Lanes in Rosemont, Ill., drew a host of current and former Bears, including Matt Forte, Shea McClellin, Johnny Knox, Major Wright, and Rashied Davis, as well as former NBA star Antoine Walker. Wright, a strong safety on the Bears,


showed up with three balls in tow and an eye on the tournament’s top stop. “I bowl twice a week,” Wright said.


“Sometimes I bowl with teammates, but mostly by myself. I like to get some peace and enjoy the game. I’ve only been bowling a year. My dad was a bowler and he made me go out and try it. My average


is like 180. I like work on my game a little, and I’m always trying out new balls.” Not surprisingly, Wright’s squad won


the tournament. “Everyone enjoys bowling,” said


Tillman, whose Cornerstone Foundation provides opportunity and resources to chronically and critically ill children in the Chicago area. “My family goes bowling a couple times a month.” Tillman’s foundation raised more than $160,000 at the event. Meanwhile, the Cincinnati Bengals


celebrated the end of their OTAs (off - season training activities) by taking to the lanes at Super Bowl in Cincinnati. All Pro linebacker James Harrison seemed to take particular delight in the bowling expedition, tweeting updates to his followers.


EVERYTHING BOWLING, ALL THE TIME


Stress relief on the lanes: For All Pro linebacker James Harrison, going bowling after his Cincinnati Bengals’ off-season workout session was a great way to get to know his new teammates, and to show off his bowling skills.
