After Hunter Machin bowled his first 300 in late January, he celebrated in a pretty nontraditional way: He went home and took a nap.

Danny Wiseman is practicing at Country Club Lanes on Pulaski Highway, sounding like the 10-pin version of Rodney Dangerfield while expounding on a favorite topic: why bowling gets no respect.

Sean Rash wants to set the record straight: The two-year PBA Tour veteran has no beef with Danny Wiseman or Baltimore fans. Rash, 25, is the cocky upstart who defeated the Baltimore resident, 256-236, in the semifinals in front of Wiseman's home crowd last year en route to winning the 2006 Beltway Classic. The Wichita, Kan., native then caused a minor stir when he yelled out to the crowd, "Who's your hometown fan now?" The comment was heard on television and quickly became a hot topic on the sport's message boards.

Bowling Wiseman elected to PBA Hall of Fame Danny Wiseman of Baltimore, a 12-time PBA Tour winner, was elected to the PBA Hall of Fame along with Doug Kent , the Professional Bowlers Association announced Friday. They will be inducted during the Hall of Fame dinner March 30 in Indianapolis. Wiseman, 45, joined the tour in 1987 and has earned just over $1.55 million. Wiseman, who attended Dundalk, won his first title at the 1990 Fair Lanes Open in Baltimore.

The 2005-06 season was the first year that Bel Air's Tim Criss was on the Professional Bowlers Association tour without his family. His daughter, Amanda, now 6, had started kindergarten and his wife, Cherie, was at home most of the time - something Criss considers when contemplating how long he'll remain on the tour. "We waited a long time to have a family because of my profession," Criss, 39, said, admitting that he is unsure how many more years he will bowl professionally. Criss has bowled since he was 5 and has been on the PBA tour for 13 years.
