Billie Jean King is branching out to bowling.

Sean Connery is pumped

RIGHT ON!

Sean Connery is fired up about the US Open. And he is pretty hyped about these things, too.

King is the celebrity owner of the New York City WTT KingPins, joining Los Angeles Clippers guard Chris Paul and former NFL stars Jerome Bettis and Terrell Owens as celebrity owners in the Professional Bowlers Association's inaugural PBA League.

King is the first female owner in the PBA League, which begins play this month. The World TeamTennis co-founder will field a team that includes PBA Hall of Famer Pete Weber, 13-time tour winner Tommy Jones and Scott Norton, who recently won the PBA Chameleon Championship in Las Vegas.

The eight-team league will make its debut Jan. 19 at Detroit's Thunderbowl Lanes. ESPN will televise five weeks of league competition beginning Jan. 27 and broadcast the Elias Cup finals on April 7.
