Greetings and Salutations Bowling fans! This week we are going to dive right back into the Vin Gerard vs. Jason Belmonte challenge. I can admit when I am wrong and I really thought this would spark some talk & buzz about the SPORT that we love. after seeing Vin & Jason’s last videos I have NO idea what they are trying to do? Vin’s last video showed him in Chicago where Jason was doing a lesson with a young student and claims that he had the match, WON and Jason gave him a bowling ball. Jason soon after posted that there was no bowling match and what had happened was that Vin was …..well let’s just say rude to Jason, his student, his student’s mom and that Vin stole the ball out of Jason’s bag? There was not any film to document this and Belmonte went on to say that he will give Gerard a new Storm bowling ball and shoes if he needed, also will have the lanes dressed the way that Gerard would like them. Also in Belmonte’s video he said when this happens there will be cameras to document the match. What really happened……Only Gerard and Belmonte know for sure. What I have been seeing is less chatter coming from the PBA facebook and Twitter accounts and this is becoming more between them. If this is a publicity stunt, at this point I do not see where it is funny on either side, in fact this has become very sad.
From @Jbelmo “@vingerard really think you should watch my reply video tomorrow. #iwantmyballback”
What is going to be made of this? Is this going to become an internet version of “chicken” to see who can top the other person? For this to continued let’s bring it back to the original match. Vin, you called out the PBA and there were two that responded; Sean Rash whom we have not heard much from him in all this, and of course Belmonte, that said name the place and time. The ball is in Gerard’s court and what happens next…well we just have to wait and see.
Till next time friends, Get out there and Bowl a game!
