Bowling Great Don Carter Dies: Don Carter, the bowler who led his sport during its golden age on television in the 1950s and 1960s, has died at age 85. Carter was the first athlete in American sports to sign a $1 million endorsement deal. "Don was one of the greatest bowlers who ever lived," fellow pro Carmen Salvino said.

In my youth I spent many a Saturday afternoon watching bowling on TV. I can't bowl for crap but love it.

RIP Mr. Carter. He's throwing rocks tonight!

In my college days I was in a bowling league, and for kicks we decided to wear jerseys instead of the typical bowling shirts. Mine had Carter and number 13 on the back.

RIP Don Carter
