As an experienced bowler, Tom knows that in bowling you get two chances: no matter what you do with the first ball, you get another for getting it right – the ultimate second chance. With that in mind, he begins his new career with the loving “OK” from his wife, Jen (Katie Lowes); Archie’s unwavering support (Chi McBride), his mentor and the proud owner of “Archie’s Lanes: Home of the Curly Fry”; the careful support of his protective mother, Helen (Julie White); and the encouragement of his son, Sam (mason well).
