Bowling

Let’s jump a few centuries and criss-cross the pond — to 1670, to a place at that point that we called the New World. Yes, it’s true, the Dutch and Germans came over with their bowling balls in tow, and we are that much better for it.

In 1819 Rip Van Winkle heard “the sound of the nine pins crashing”, and that led to rabid gambling on the game in the 1820’s, so much so that bowling was banned for a short time…(Bet you didn’t realize when you got that 7-10 split that you were playing the game of the outlaws who used the same language as you are using now… and that you were about to miss that split as well!)

Moving quickly into the 20th Century, beer companies started sponsoring tournaments and television made heroes of guys like Don Carter, Ray Bluth and Billy Golembiewski.
