Steelers LaMarr Woodley not a Pro Bowler, but he's a pro bowler

Professional Bowlers Association announces the creation of the Pittsburgh Jack Rabbits, owned by Steelers linebacker LaMarr Woodley, will begin competition January.

Steelers linebacker LaMarr Woodley has been busy while nursing an ankle injury that's kept him out of the last two games.

The Professional Bowlers Association announced Woodley's ownership of the newly formed Pittsburgh Jack Rabbits team of the newly found Pro Bowlers Association League. He will compete against former Steelers running back Jerome Bettis, who owns the Motown Muscle based out of Detroit.

Former NFL WR Terrell Owens and NBA's Chris Paul also own teams in the league.

The structure of the competition isn't exactly clear, or any other information about sponsors and what not, but clearly star power exists here.

"Bowling is a personal pastime for me," Woodley said in a PBA press release dated Dec. 11. "I grew up bowling in my hometown of Saginaw and now I go with my teammates and friends in Pittsburgh. I was introduced to the PBA when I played in Chris Paul's charity event and got a firsthand look at how incredibly talented these athletes are, and I couldn't be more excited to be a celebrity owner in the first ever PBA League."

The timing of this announcement is curious, to say the least. There's a season currently going on.
