The quote of the week in bowling:
It was almost as if Adrienne Roseberry had never left.
The 76-year-old Roseberry has earned the title of bowling league icon with a magnetic personality that she’s displayed in more than 40 years on the lanes.
Roseberry, a Simi Valley resident, has recently been idled for two months because of a bout with radiculitis, a condition in which nerve pain radiates from the spinal column.
But Roseberry has returned with a vengeance to her two-days-a-week leagues without showing any sign of rustiness.
Roseberry also flashed her cantankerous, tell-it-like-it-is, free-spirit style last week after leaving the baby split during one of her league games at AMF Woodlake Lanes in Woodland Hills.
The shot somehow triggered a short mechanical breakdown in Roseberry’s lane and she had to wait about five minutes before a bowling attendant was able to bring the lane back to running order.
Finally given a chance to convert her split, Roseberry rolled the ball far from the pins and directly into the gutter.
Said Adrienne: “I waited so . . . long, I couldn’t throw the ball.”
