Rolling Strikes in Wheat Ridge

That's what we get, got it good
Since you understood, would you
Stop scheming, and looking hard
I got a great big bodyguard...

Scanning the dial this weekend I stumbled upon a bowling tournament and upon scanning the crowd I noticed guys in Colorado pullovers, Bronco hats, Avs’ gear, and even a Denver Post columnist looking strikingly out of place in the front row.

Upon hitting info and scanning the PBA website, it was revealed the Kingpin set had settled into Wheat Ridge, a sleepy suburb of Our Town for a tour stop.

More research revealed that in this particular tourney the bowlers were required to use “throwback” equipment, mainly plastic balls that were the rage in the 1970’s heyday of bowling.

(Ah yes, and the NFL will be using leather helmets for on weekend this year. Can anyone get Craig McTavish and his helmetless crew to skate in the NHL again? Someone get Roger Federer a wooden racquet dammit!)

The old school element of the tourney also reared its head when I relived the nostalgia of my old apartment, which was located just a few scant blocks from the alley. It was there that the “Commish” moniker was perhaps born, as we held our first Fantasy Football draft there. That crappy apartment also saw marathon Bill Walsh College Football sessions, hand-me-down couches and futons, mass amounts of mid-90s Hip Hop, and cheap beer by the case load. Raise your Keystone Lights in celebration!

I guess the wife doesn't get any credit for the discovery. :(

Yo man, I used to rest in Wheat R for a minute in the day. I know exactly that bowling alley. We used to eat a slice of pizza at some place up the street and at night break into the old boarded up school on the hill. Those still there?

The pizza place was probably Lil Nick's, where a former SG winner once worked. The school was the old Ridge Home, which is gone for new houses/Target.
