Chewing on some low fat sesame crackers he bought at a health food store earlier in the day, Vince Mazzanti Jr. reminisced about the days of eating steak and pizza. While he misses his favorite foods, the results he’s seeing in his bowling have been well worth the deprivation.

Gary Smith has been lucky enough to get some time away from his full-time job at Par-A-Dice Casino to bowl on the PBA Senior Tour lately, and so far he’s making the most of his opportunity.
