Anyone know the date of this show/series? I actually did once bowl against Billy Golembiewski, but I honestly do not remember this show.
I really have no idea. TL? Maybe DL…
+George LeCain There does not seem to be a Private Message system connected with your name, George. However, if you are on Facebook, you WILL find me. I’m now living in NH. When I bowled in North Reading I was living in Amesbury.
I think this is 1963. Don signed for Ebonite in 1964
Good lord. He is supposed to guess with that clue?
@toscodav I actually did guess correctly. If you notice I said his initials might be DL. I was correct!
I met Don in 1960 when I attended his instructors school. Nice man, friendly, and a true gentleman
came here to watch Don Carter vs Billy G., and got bonused with Joe Buck’s dad…nice
Bob G is the
Did anyone ever figure out the story behind Isabel?
And thanks to Isabel for making these matches even more enjoyable to watch!
If there is a man seated next to her he is always chatting it up!
My greatest moment in bowling was in 1964 at the Northern California Open PBA Tournament at Country Club Lanes , Watt Ave in Sacramento ,Calif. On lanes 5-6 I kept score for Don Carter
Times have changed when kids today in jr. leagues would go home upset at those scores and series.
The game has been ruined.
Don Carter in his prime was the best bowler I ever saw! He was extremely confident and threw a semi-roller that “dove” into the pocket. During his prime they used to call his pocket action “Carter Magic”! I always felt his change to Ebonite was a mistake.
They gave him his own line of bowling balls, which Brunswick wouldn’t do.
I don’t know the story on Isabelle but I would like to know how she is doing today.
She’s in her 80s, if still alive.
Are you into the gout, varicose veins and liquid lunches ?
@Joe Ambrose 😆lol
@Joe Ambrose maybe…….
Isabelle must’ve been a bowling groupie.
She was a model, paid to be there.
If that’s the case, I wish I was a pro bowler back then!
A top shelf pro bowler back then made more money than nearly any other professional athlete.
I wonder if Don REALLY wanted to use a plastic Gold Crown. Brunswick said promote! maybe, lol….
Don Carter was my bowling hero back in the day. Being a lefty, I became a big fan of the late, great, Earl Anthony. I always thought of Earl as the left-handed Don Carter. Sure seemed ‘odd’, Don using something other that the black rubber ball he always used.
Joe Buck isn’t half the announcer his dad Jack was.
Joe Buck is ALL the announcer Joe Buck is. It is unfair to compare the two because they’re different people in different times.
@Cats01 Yes they are and Jack Buck was WAY better than little Joey boy….and Don Carter is to bowling what Arnold Palmer is to golf. The both made their sports popular, and they both not only were great at their sports; they were great gentlemen, too…..Talent, class and character…..you’ll find very, very few athletes like that these days….goes with the times we’re in….downhill !
A different St. Louis than today’s
That’s for sure!
Two classy gentlemen and two excellent bowlers.
I wish pba bowling was like this for a few t.v. shows, the commentiors was so close to the bowlsers and had very little space and you can here everything the commentiors say
It would be awesome 😎.
Jack Buck & Whitey Harris.
The football player was pretty glib, given that those kind of interviews are usually godawful.
Amazingly I bowled with Don Carter and his wife Paula, on a league in Miami Florida at his 24 hour lanes, Don Carter’s Kendall Lanes back while he was still bowling. Great times. He was a true gentleman and sportsman.
