confused Nope not the guy I'm thinking of he was bigger (taller and weighed more) than Bob Handley, and walked a very slow uneven labored path to the line.

I'll suggest it was Wayne Garber. It looks as though he never won a PBA event...

speaking of "that guy". does anybody know of video of either Jimmy Smith and Count Gengler?

there is so much lore about the Count and his antics. the age of video was around before Gengler left the scene. Jimmy Smith continued bowling much longer.

im sure there's video of him. let me know of any of these videos. would be interesting to see how they bowled.

Thanks for posting the link RayRay.
Lots of info on old Chicago bowling and old alleys.
I recall as a kid going bowling at a number of places around Chicago with my relatives. Many of the places had pin boys and always had a great time. Brings back memories... Thanks again!
