And he’s only requesting a 57 pin handicap. Wilbon, the bald(er) one on ESPN’s Pardon the Interruption, is a casual bowler. He even has his own shoes! Well, he and pro bowler Wes ‘Big Nasty’ Malott, current points leader on the Pro Bowler’s Association, got into a spat when Wilbon called Malott out for not bowling in last week’s Plastic Ball Challenge tournament. Instead of bowling, Malott took the week off, came back and won the incedibly difficult Etonic Marathan Open. This tournament involved bowling on a different pattern every single day, requiring multiple lines to the pocket. Malott won with ease, raised the trophy and then asked ‘What now Wilbon?!’ live on ESPN.
Wilbon recently responded on PTI:
Bring it on Malott! Michael Wilbon and his shiny head of justice are going to go for it! He’s going to get you for your trash talk! Malott v Wilbon (+57)! Who will win?!
