Miley Cyrus Up For Induction Into Bowling Hall Of Fame

All that time spent at Pinz Bwling is paying of for Miley, Nick and Joe as the Bowling Proprietors Association of America (BPAA) has included them in this years list of honory celebrity inductions to the Bowling Hall Of Fame.  Here is the kicker. You guys can vote on who is inducted. Check out the details in the Official BPAA press release below
Bowling fans across the world will once again have an opportunity to grant bowling immortality to a chosen celebrity nominee.  The Bowling Proprietors’ Association of America (BPAA) and International Bowling Hall of Fame today announced its list of candidates for consideration into its Celebrity Bowling Hall of Fame wing.   The roster of candidates includes celebrities who have helped support and popularize bowling, contributing to its status as the nation’s number one participatory sport.  The bowling industry is once again placing the power in the hands of the public, inviting fans to visit to cast their vote – and receive a coupon for a free game of bowling that can be used at one of more than 4,000 participating bowling centers across the United States.
The 2011 list of candidates includes celebrities from a wide cross section of pop culture including superstar entertainers Justin Bieber, Lady Gaga, Miley Cyrus, Lil Wayne and Nick and Joe Jonas, legendary actors Jeff Bridges and Bill Murray, TV personalities Kim Kardashian and Jimmy Fallon and sports icon Michael Jordan.  Following in the footsteps of 2010 inductee Taylor Swift – who edged out Justin Bieber in a competition that went down to the wire – one celebrity will forever become a part of bowling history with the online vote to take place between July 12 and August 6.
“This star-studded line-up of celebrities speaks to the tremendous relevance and popularity of bowling and showcases the widespread appeal of bowling – as diverse as this group of celebrities is, one thing that they all share in common is public support for the greatest game in the world,” said Steve Johnson, executive director of the BPAA.  ”We are excited to once again empower the 69 million bowlers throughout the country to have an opportunity to help us create history by making one of these celebrities a part of bowling history.”
Beginning on July 12, fans and enthusiasts can cast their vote online at  The voting process will occur throughout the month of July and will culminate during National Bowling Week (July 31 to August 6).   The final votes will be tallied on National Bowling Day, August 6 – a day where more than 4,000 centers across the United States will join forces to try to set a new world record for the most bowling games played in a 24-hour period.
To help create a call to action to drive fans to cast votes for their favorite stars, more than 4,000 bowling centers across the United States are working together to provide a free game of bowling to everyone who casts a vote in this year’s Celebrity Hall of Fame competition. By voting for their favorite celebrity at, consumers can download a coupon for a free game of bowling on National Bowling Day, August 6.
Added Johnson, “The tremendous level of support that we have received – more than 4,000 bowling centers across the country opening their doors to fans who cast their HOF vote – speaks to the welcoming environment that can be found in bowling centers and the tremendous solidarity within our industry.”
“Each of these 2011 candidates has had a significant impact in helping to keep bowling as one of the nation’s most treasured pastimes,” said Keith Hamilton, chairman of the International Bowling Museum and Hall of Fame. “If last year’s down-to-the-wire showdown between Taylor Swift and Justin Bieber is any indication of what to expect for 2011, we’ll be ready for a fierce battle to determine who is the next star to achieve bowling immortality.” 

Miley Cyrus – Mega hit children’s television show, check.  Hit solo music artist, check.  A-List movie star, check.  Killer bowling game, check!  At only 18, Miley Cyrus is certainly a busy girl, but when she’s not filming or recording, she’s been spotted at various bowling centers with celebrity friends, including fellow nominees Nick Jonas and Justin Bieber, and charity bowling events.
