Bowling one more time

Since no one made it out to the Lucky Strike Lanes, or at least hasn't owned up to it.  Here is a recount:

The biggest kid at the party was smiling and dancing while wearing Michael Moorer's International Boxing Federation heavyweight championship belt, belonged to Dontrelle Willis, who ended a weekend of charity events Sunday night at Lucky Strike Lanes in Miami Beach, where a long list of major-league players and former heavyweight champion Moorer were on hand, bowling for more than strikes.

What a surprise.

If you missed this year's event, take heart, you may get a chance to participate in the future.

''This is big. This is huge. I want to do this every year,'' Willis said. ``It's a blessing to be able to do something like this and give back to these kids. I'm a kid so why not give to the kids? Last year we did the [shopping] but this is the first year for the bowling. I want to have a weekend every year.''

In other Marlins charity news, the Marlins won an award from the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

In-kind Angel Award - Florida Marlins

I'm not exactly sure what the "In-kind Angel Award" is but it must be something good.

If you click on the link and look at list of award winners, you won't see the Dolphins, Heat or Panthers listed.  The reason I highlight when the Marlins give back to community is that they are one of the best Pro teams I have ever seen in this respect.
