I have a lot of great memories from my bowling days. My highest finish in a PBA event was second in the 1989 Merced Open on the Regional Tour, and I have cashed on National Tour. However, I could never secure a full time sponsor to stay on tour. With the lone exception of bowling the US Open on a whim in 2001, I have not bowled since 1992. I never bowled to be a league bowler; I only aspired to be on tour. With that possibility fading, so did my desire to bowl.
My last fast forward will bring us to present day. In 2016, I found out I had cancer. So far, after surgery and radiation, I have been cancer free for almost three years.
I have invented a beer mug call Two Fisted Drinker (TwoFistedDrinker.com). It always sounds strange to use the term “invented” when referring to a beer mug. But I have three patents on the mug, so…
And lastly – the reason for this site – I have started doing standup comedy. You can see my event calendar here: (Mike Bolland Event Calendar). If you come to one of my shows, make sure you stop me to say hi. I’d love to meet you!
