The swirling clouds of burning tobacco went up in smoke years ago. That was when the "shop leagues" rolled the balls and made the candle-pins drop at Springfield's only surviving manual bowling alley.


  1. Interesting, isn't there another one in the building right next to the bridge over the falls?

    1. Was, not anymore.

    2. Now it's a drug den

    3. Well that is way 2 bad. Kids and adults these days would rather sit and text...diddle, diddle,diddle. Some entertainment that is. They don't know what they are missing. It is 2 bad that that bowling alley is now closed. Maybe if it were opened again it would give kids and adults something else to do other than stare into those brain wasting phones. In 200 years Darwin will lol when humans have thumbs as long as their middle finger.


Please keep your comments polite and on-topic. No profanity
