Bears to Bowl in PBA Pro-Am

Tommie Harris, Fred Miller and Kyle Orton of the Chicago Bears will join exempt bowlers from the Denny's Professional Bowlers Association (PBA) Tour Wednesday night at 7 p.m. CST at Hawthorn Lanes in Vernon Hills, Ill., for the Discover® Card Windy City Classic Pro-Am.

The pro-am coincides with the 2006 Discover® Card Windy City Classic, the sixth stop on the Denny's PBA Tour, which begins Thursday morning and runs through Sunday's live ESPN televised finals at Noon CST.

Harris, a third-year defensive tackle from the University of Oklahoma, was selected as a starter in the 2006 Pro Bowl in just his second season. Harris has five sacks on the season and 11.5 in his career while starting every game in his three seasons.

Miller, an offensive tackle from Baylor who is in his 11th year in the league out of Baylor, has helped open holes for a 1,000 yard rusher six times in his career as a starter, including Thomas Jones’ 1,335 yards last year.

Orton, a second-year quarterback from Purdue, established Bears rookie records for games started, wins, pass attempts, completions and yards, and tied the record for touchdowns while leading Chicago to an eight-game win streak in 2005.

Two more Discover® Card Windy City Classic Pro-Ams will be held at Hawthorn Lanes Saturday at 4 and 7 p.m. CST. A third Discover® Card Windy City Classic will be held Saturday at Fox Bowl in Wheaton, Ill.

Fans interested in bowling in Wednesday or Saturday’s Discover® Card Windy City Classic Pro-Ams should contact Hawthorn Lanes at 847-367-1600.
