A Quack for the Ducks

The Modernization of Bowling

The Modernization Of Bowling

By Andrea Gage-Werren, La Habra 300 Bowl

Bowling in 2014 is a very different game than it was thirty years ago. Reminiscing back to the early 1980’s when I was a bowler in the junior program here at La Habra 300 Bowl, the building always had a heavy cloud of cigarette smoke lingering about. The adult and senior leagues thrived with fierce competition and several glasses of scotch.  Nowadays, the cigarette smoke has disappeared along with many of the…

Lights Out on January 1st!

January 1 is Lights Out

That’s right, January 1, 2014 the lights go out… at least for the manufacture and import of household incandescent lamps. Some people are meeting this news with shock and outrage. Others are hoarding remaining supplies. I have a somewhat different approach.

This isn’t really new or newsworthy. It’s a product of the 2007 Energy…

Double Ballers

Anyone who has worked at a center or who bowls a lot knows what the cracking sound in an alley means. Someone has decided to throw a ball directly at the sweep; or a child who didn’t know any better rolled too soon or too late; or some teenager thought he would look “cool.” Often times, the culprit ends up being an adult who has had a few too many drinks and tries to get a good laugh from his friends by throwing more than one ball down the lane. This past weekend, I dealt with one of “those”…

Hanging Bras

             Holler House, established in 1908, is not only known for housing the oldest certified lanes in America, which are housed in the basement of the bar, but also for the regalia of bras hanging from the ceiling of the bar. How cool is that?! Apparently, a Milwaukee city inspector did not think so when he declared the dangling undergarments a fire hazard. He broke Holler House’s 45-year tradition when he demanded…

Bowling at almost a century old!

             Bowling at 98… WOW! Pete Parsons celebrated his birthday with a 204 game. Not bad for a 98-year-old! Age is just a number to Parsons as “he shrugged off both his age and his 204 game,” according to an LA Times news article by Bob Pool. While he has been bowling for 40 years and then some, Parsons wife still says he should take bowling lessons at some point.

            It is quite remarkable how a man in his nineties had sixty-six people attend his birthday event while I…

If You're Not Lady Gaga,You're Nobody

Ever notice that to get noticed today you need to almost border on the ridiculous? Or on the outrageous?. 

Take Lady GaGa (pictured on the left) for instance. Not that Lady Gaga is ridiculous, but she is certainly someone who stands apart from her competition. 

Her "brand,” if you will, is a unique blend of musical talent matched with daring…
