Let's face it....smoking was more of the norm....especially back in the 50s/60s/70s.  I would venture to guess that most of the bowlers smoked back then.

One of the reason I quit bowling back in the 80's was because of how I felt after leaving the bowling center. Yuckies! It was mentioned about Nelson Burton Jr possibly smoking...this i doubt, he was always too concerned about health and always talked up how built up or in shape certain bowlers were... and...well, Nelson sure was/is built up...and a super bowler too!

I have chatted with Mark before, he told me that he started smoking as a 13-year-old teenager. Of course he stopped it after his stroke. Even he would drink some wine seldom when we was still in tour.

Mr. Earl Anthony was the greatest.  Smoked and drank some kind of Whisky or Scotch.  I had the pleasure to have a drink with him many years ago.  I can't remember what it was he drank but it wasn't beer.  Another I think was Guppy smoked Marlboro's only.  He gave me a pack of Winston's for a half pack of Marlboro's.

I'm glad this was brought up because I only know of Pete Weber, Mike Edwards,and Norm Duke smoking these days. If there are others,it can't be very many!

In Colorado, you can't smoke cigarettes in bowling alleys, bars , restaurants, casinos and some cities have banned smoking on the sidewalks  out side of the forementioned.  But of course we  were the first to legalize and promote marijuana smoking,  but damn you tobacco smokers,  lol.   I do occasionally see someone blowing smoke bombs in bowling alleys  with those battery powered vaporizer juice cigarettes or what ever they call them.
  After you get used to "No Smoking"  it seems really weird when I went to Vegas and people smoked in the casinos, and bowling alley bars  that were wide open air to the lanes, but you couldnt smoke while bowling.
I'm surprised that you can still smoke in bars in Atlanta.

I've seen a few at country lanes using e-cigs and vaping....honestly, that's not offensive as cig smoke to me.

I bowled in the 1982 Columbia 300 Pro-Am as a 16 year old, and PDW must have been 18 or 19 then, and he had a pack of cigs in his front shirt pocket!
