  1. the Tournament of Champions is one of the best major tournaments on the Pba Tour and it had fantastic Moments including the 300 game from 1967

    1. @pork is the best meat There are a few sports where nobody trying to prevent you from winning. It’s just you against your skills

  2. Just a tidbit. The price for rolling a 300 on TV is still $10,000. But $10,000 in 1967 was about $85,000.

  3. One of my doctors is right next to Riviera Lanes ….corner of Miller and Market. Lots of bowling history in the area here in NE Ohio. Its weird because you see that old bowling house and its inconspicuous sitting there on the corner and it’s easy to forget all the greatness and history that has been in that building. Its not like some beam of light raining down on it like some hallowed place…lol. but thats what makes it cool.
