MICHAEL HAUGEN 2014 PBA Scorpion Champion


NEVER GIVE UP “Don’t ever give up and try to keep the game fun. As you saw on that Scorpion show, we both started off well; we both started off with a double. And then [Martin Larsen] left the 3-4-5, and I had the chance to get up and really put it on him and threw a decent shot and left a half-10. And then I missed it. Then I came up in the next shot and threw a bad shot, broke up a split, and left the 6-10. Now, at that point, you can get down on yourself, and you could get dejected or whatever, but you don’t. You just kind of regroup and refocus and just keep going.”


KEEP IT FUN “Just have fun. I mean, yeah, for us it’s a living, and it’s tough, and, as you can see, the momentum can swing and it’s heartbreak for one guy and joy for the other. As Howard Cosell used to say, it’s the thrill of victory and the agony of defeat. And it is; that’s what it is. But, ultimately, it’s just a game. Now, I will say that very loosely, because try tell- ing that to the other guys on the show. But it really is a kid’s game and we’re big kids playing that game; we’re just good at it. As long as I try to remem- ber to keep it fun, usually, good things happen. “
