Cowboys Stadium to host bowling

DALLAS (AP) - The the NFL in the middle of a lockout, how about a few good strikes at Cowboys Stadium?

The cavernous home of the Dallas Cowboys will host the U.S. Women's Open this summer, the first time a bowling event has been held at the billion-dollar showplace of Jerry Jones.

Shiny wooden lanes will be placed on either side of the famous Cowboys star at midfield. There will be temporary seats on the field for the June 30 event.

Pro bowler Stefanie Nation says it's exciting to have "the pinnacle of women's bowling" at the site of last season's Super Bowl.
