I’m thinking of moving to Arlington, Texas. I just learned there is an international bowling campus and museum there and I’m thinking I’ve never heard of anything so stupidly awesome in all my life.
“The International Bowling Museum and Hall of Fame collects, preserves and researches bowling’s history, provides a suitable home for bowling’s major halls of fame, and makes the museum’s information and collection available to interested parties globally for education, promotion and entertainment.”
A suitable home! It’s about time!
I did not know that people in over 90 countries spanning 6 continents participate in bowling, making it one of the most popular sports in history. Even with the shoes? That’s just crazy.
Also — I’m guessing no one bowls on Antarctica? Here’s a tip: trying painting the pins!
I’m crazy for candlepin bowling, which is not “real” bowling, according to the man I married. For the record, he thinks it isn’t real because I’m better at it than he is. But kingpin bowling –it’s a different game altogether. I can’t win at that to save my life. Trying to fling the ball onto the lane just about flips me off my feet.
But trying is fun. And bowling with lots of other people is fun. So a few weeks ago we did just that. Here’s the pics.
