The reason for Chicago being named the windy city is because of back in the 1800's, a newspaper said that Chicagoans were braggarts and blowhards. Basically stating that the politicians here blow a lot of wind when they talk. The term has kind of snowballed since then.


I was just going by watching all of those Bears Packers games where the Chicago fans were sitting in Soldier Field breathing snow on the back of the guy in front of them.

This probably answers the question of the what is in the water in Simpsonville SC too, it is just plain warmer there!

My bowling buddy went to a bowling camp for 5 days and came back with a completely different approach but still hasn't really improved over a 185-190 average that he has carried for the past 5-6 years. They actually forced everyone to go from a five step to a four step approach which would have really messed me up but he went along with it.

We just recently started bowling again together and I can really tell that what he learned at the camp seemed to hurt him.

what camp was it?

I have never heard of a coach or coaches forcing everyone to bowl the same, that is absurd.

That's exactly what I thought. He lives two hours away so we don't talk but once or twice a week. I'll find out and let you know.
