Day 2 of the A to Z… letter “B” as in Bingo? No, I don’t know anything about Bingo… well a little bit. How about Boys… no other than being a boy, I’m not very interested in the subject, boys, after all, are dumb. That leaves me with, No I already said Bingo, we can backslide to my movie of the day. Nope I GOT IT!
No, no it sure doesn’t I seem to be in a bit of a pickle with this already. I had a letter B prompt last night when I went to bed, and I didn’t write it down or tell Alexa. So now I’m stuck here, typing about not having anything because I promised myself, I wouldn’t get bogged down and use that as an excuse not to do this (Laugh).
Bowling let’s talk about Bowling. When I was a kid on Saturdays, after the cartoons I would go outside to play with my friends unless… it rained. If it rained, then I would have to stay inside. At that time, we didn’t have multiple TV’s and streaming services… you couldn’t watch a movie on a phone, you had one big tv in the living room and maybe, just maybe a small old black and white someplace else. I got the TV in the morning for cartoons on Sat but after that it turned into the Bowling channel for a few hours. Which meant I could do nothing, or I could watch bowling with my Grandfather. ABC’s Professional Bowling Association Tour was what he watched, I just had to look that up I couldn’t remember he would explain to me what they were doing and how you could manipulate the ball. This is one of the few things I can really remember doing with him from when I was a kid. I have pictures doing things with him, but that’s not a memory of something to me. It’s only a memory of a picture. It seems my Grandfather wasn’t the only fan. Bowling at that point drew more people then basketball and golf did. That’s crazy about Basketball… golf I can believe. Sometimes, even though it was nice out I would still watch with him. I liked it, I have no idea why, more likely I enjoyed spending time with my Grandfather, which isn’t something I enjoyed as i got older. It’s a good memory… Maybe I should go bowling this weekend.
You see my grandfather loved bowling… it never occur to me until later that it was something he loved. He bowled, was on a league with the Moose and another one I think too. He had a ball, shoes, those fluffy bags with talc in them. A nice bag. On Saturdays though he watched bowling after that it was the wide world of sports…. with it’s then famous “..and the agony of defeat.” That poor guy in that clip. I would watch this too sometimes… but that Agony of defeat part always stuck with me.
The Promised movie… just for fun…
Since I can I’m going to give you a two-fer not only does the title start with “B” (Maybe it doesn’t but When I worked at a video store, its title was Barry Gordy’s, The Last Dragon, so it’s a B) it is also considered a “B” Movie.
