An interesting look at days gone by.  Above ground ball returns.  Pin boys.  Lacquer condition.  Almost like Parkview Lanes in NY!

When I see the films of Folcaro, Varipapa, Day, etc., the first thing I notice is that they cut their follow through short, as did most bowlers in that day.

Funny how the narrator was gushing about Folcaro's uncanny accuracy when he threw a brooklyn strike!

That little girl at the end had the best form! I noticed no lefties were featured. See, the "Flying Eagle" has been around long before Chris Barnes!
