Vernon (Scott) Watson AKA Whammy
Lyric Writer and Bowler
My name is Vernon (Scott) Watson. I am 50 years old, married, and I have a daughter and a son. I am a lyricist only and have written about 60 lyrics that have all been copyrighted. If you could use lyrics about Family, Lost Loves, or anything in between please let me know. I would be interested in selling 100% of my rights for all material as well. I am putting a fund away for my kids to go to college.
I have a true story that I would like to share with you. It began about 1984. I worked with and bowled with a good friend. His name was Dale Hicks. I bowled with Dale on a league at a local bowling alley. He gave me a nickname (Whammy) because of my style of bowling. Every week on the last ball of the night he would bowl between his legs. One day, my boss calls me and says Dale is in the hospital. He soon passed on. At his wake, people from all around shared a story how this man touched their lives. Dale may have been small in stature, but he had a heart of a giant. In Dale’s memory I started bowling between my legs in practice games. People were touched when I shared my story with them and why I was bowling between my legs throughout Illinois and Missouri. I practiced enough that I was getting 5-6 strikes a game. I wanted to dedicate a good enough game to Dale. I was practicing at Strike & Spare Lanes in St. Louis, MO when I bowled a perfect 300 game (between my legs). There was a man and woman next to me bowling and witnessed what I had done. I took the print out to the couple and he wrote “bowled this game between the legs” then signed his name. I hope this is a reminder that anything is possible if you want it bad enough. I took the printout and wrote I could not have done it without you Dale then had it put on a nice plaque. I hope you enjoy the story. Please pass it along. (Whammy) If interested in seeing me bowl (left or right handed) between my legs check out my video... This is NOT my 300 game that I have recorded.
I have business cards, business card size magnets, & business card key chain about my story and my 300 game for sale if interested. The business card has my story on one side and my 300 game on the other side is $3.00 each. The business card magnets I am selling for $4.00 each or $7.00 for both. One magnet has my bowling story on it and the other has my 300 game on it. The key chain that contains a business card with my story on one side and my 300 game on the other side I am selling for $8.00 each. Also, I am giving away an 8 ½ x 11 sheet of my bowling story on one side and blown up copy of my 300 game on the other side with each purchase. Shipping is included for the lower 48 states.
