a funny story for yas
So anyway I know this guy, he's my uncle. Works in the bowling business. He organizes leagues, promotes bowling. So his leagues are the 20-30 crowd, they drink a lot, aren't too worried about their bowling scores. When he got started around 25 years ago, he had this idea that he wanted the centers to play music during his leagues. To this idea he got tremendous adversity, and often the managers even if ordered by the owners to put on the music refused to. and if there were hardcore bowlers in the league they'd go utterly nuts on him. He found he had to line up spies in his leagues to report whether or not they played the music. The leagues got hugely popular. It was also the early days of rock n' bowl on weekends and with the acceptance of music in my uncle's leagues, centers offering rock n' bowl became the biggest thing in bowling. Now all over the US, most later night leagues and lousy bowlers leagues have music going, it's part of the experience. My uncle takes some pride in what he did, it kind of changed the world.
