If he wasn't such an important piece of the Patriots' defense, Jerod Mayo might have something to worry about with the first-round of NFL roster cuts due by Monday -- because this hasn't exactly been the most stable of weeks for those hosting a charity bowling tournament.

Last Monday night, Josh Beckett hosted his annual "Beckett Bowl" at Jillian's on Lansdowne Street in Boston. Then, Thursday night, James Loney hosted the Dodgers Dream Foundation Bowling Extravaganza at an alley in Los Angeles.

But less than 24 hours after being selected to headline a team-orchestrated fundraiser -- as he also did in 2011 -- Loney was yanked from the lineup and eventually told he'd effectively be trading places with Beckett, those two among the nine players changing locales as part of the blockbuster exchange between the Red Sox and Dodgers.

Mayo Bowl isn't happening for a few more weeks, with the event held to benefit Pitching in for Kids and Boston Medical Center scheduled for Sept. 10 at Kings in Dedham. The linebacker can only hope that by then the curse is lifted -- and it's safe to start bowling again.
