MarionLadewig at the height of her bowling career as she wins her 4th straight All Star title back when the All Star was the biggest tournament in bowling, for both men and women. Legendary bowling announcer Fred Wolf on the call, years before he would become known as the voice on Championship Bowling."
I love this stuff, and I kind of wish bowling was as simple today as it was back then in terms of equipment, oil patterns, and other ways. Rightly or wrongly, I have the impression that it was more about how well a person executed over many games than it was about having the right ball rep help you choose the right ball layout and surface and praying that your ball, axis tilt, and rev rate matched up better than everyone else's with the particular conditions in play that week. It just seems to me, rightly or wrongly, that bowling is less about the bowler's pure skill today than it was in 1952.
We can't go back to those times, but I sure enjoy watching them.
