Kelly Kulick won one of the four PBA majors yesterday, the Tournament of Champions. Why on earth would I consider a bowling tournament postworthy? Because Kulick is the first woman to win a PBA tournament, and picked a major to do it. AFAIK, besides auto racing, the PBA is the only professional sport that allows open competition regardless of gender, but it is still mostly a men's tour.
Kulick actually earned her way on to the tour at qualifying school a couple of years ago, but didn't finish high enough on the money list to keep her card. For her to win a major or even make the TV finals of one is a groundbreaking accomplishment.
The closest comparison I can make to any other sport is that it would be like Paula Creamer winning the British Open or Danica Patrick winning Indy.
Anyway, congratulations to Kelly Kulick.
And I promise not to make any more bowling posts unless they have something to do with The Big Lebowski or the UM team.
