Its hard to believe it was produced in 1991. I can remember many of the matches and bowlers.

That was a good find - watched it yesterday while laying on the coach w/a heating pack on my back. There had only been 5 perfect games from the PBA on TV at that point...

Dennis, you like to look back on the game you started playing and wonder what it has become. What do you think the bowlers of the 30s thought when you were using 3 holes in your ball, bowling on lacquer lanes?

cg, we used 2 holes and wooden balls. And, if we were lucky, the lanes were level.

We had to whittle our own balls. Then, we just rolled them down the street, and hoped they didn't hit a car!

I get a kick out of Bill Taylors stories from back in the old days of bowling, I think in the book Balance he mentions a few of these.

One of them was while he was in the army, he was in a remote location and someone left a mark on the lane and it just so happened to be that when you hit this mark the ball would roll in the pocket, so when he got back to the states he was talking to one of the lane manufacturers at the time about how easy this was, and then he went off to some other country and when he came back a bunch of centers had arrows to aim at on the lanes, he was saying it is going to make the game too easy and would be the downfall of the game.

Now we not only have arrows to aim at, and dots to stand on, but range finders down the lane at 43 ft to help line up the break point to the pocket.

Another good one was when the ABC decided it was alright to move the oil requirement from foul line to head pin back and allow short oiling, Bill Taylor was at the ABC convention making a speech and just outside the auditorium the tournament was going on and in his speech he was saying that short oiling would allow for runaway scoring and make the game too easy, just at that point cheers went up, out on the lanes, for a 300 game.

Did you see where Buzz Fasio led all pros with a 196 average for 2 years. Those days are gone.

That's not even a high enough average to think about going Pro much less leading the tour in average.

Funny thing a friend of mine out of the blue decided to get his card (190 avg) and start bowling regionals. He found out that he needs lessons.
