I met my (common-law) wife Alice Yantz at (now-defunct) Key City Lanes here in Port Townsend back in 1989.

At the tme she was bowling in a mixed league on Tuesday Nights, and I was just getting into this great sport just by watching the Professional Bowlers Tour series when it was on ABC Sports back then (I had been watching it here and there since the mid-70s), and she got me into it on a more serious note, and sure enough, a month later, I had my first ever ball drilled. An Ebonite Thunderbolt, and since then, Alice and I are still together, and we always have looked forward to league night.

20 years later, well after Key City Lanes closed down back in 1999, it's now the Thursday Night PSNS (Puget Sound Naval Shipyard) Red & White League (with teammates Jeff and Anna Nordbarg and captain Larry "Mr T." Tibbets) over at beautiful All-Star Lanes in Silverdale, WA, just a 40-mile drive from our home here in Port Townsend, and not even the price of league fee, gas, and dinner out on League night can ever deter us from enjoying this great sport that both of us still continue to enjoy, as well as make like we are on the Tour during Championship Sunday on ESPN (and back in the day on ABC Television on Saturday Afternoons) every week. I even throw in a little PBA-style trash talk and PDW-style "chop" every once in a while, that's how much this great sport and the guys both in league and on Tour have influenced me (now if only I can keep from dropping my shoulder which causes me to throw an errant shot under pressure) LOL.

Yes, this great sport of bowling, and especially league play, have kept myself and Alice together for almost 20 years together (our 20th Anniversary together is this April), and it still will, no matter what stands in our way. That is how much it has kept us together.
