  1. I used to watch ABC’s Wide World of Sports with my dad on Sundays and remember the bowling tournaments and remember Roth and also Johnny Petraglia. My dad (born in the 1920’s) dropped out of school in 6th grade and became a pin setter at one of the local bowling alleys. Bowling was big in these parts back then and still draws a lot of people. I’ve got extended family members that roll 300 (or used to.)

    • I miss Wide World Of Sports- introduced me to a lot of different sports that you don’t usually see. They used to have bowling on every week- I haven’t seen it on tv in years.. your family must have the bowling gene! One night-40 years ago I’d guess now I rolled a 262. My second best ever is probably around 160. I don’t know how that one happened..

    • Bowling is big here as we had a giant Brunswick production complex here back in the day. Lots of bowling alleys. 262??? wow, that’s something to be proud of. If there is a bowling gene, I didn’t inherit it. My older son was into it for awhile then gave it up. Some of my co-workers were into it bigtime and bowled on leagues. Wide World of Sports was a weekly thing at my dad’s house.

    • “The thrill of victory..the agony of defeat.”… around here it used to be bigger than what it is now- bowling..not many lanes open anymore. It was always fun even if I wasn’t very good at it.
