  1. aww i remember being 6 years old and asking my dad to get this video for me but he never did =(
    thanks for uploading it!

  2. I didn’t even know some of those shots were physically possible (citing the Varipapa montage)

  3. Holla for us old-time candlepin players. “And high scores are rare.” That ain’t the half of it, Chris. 🙂 Gotta love Varipapa’s dropkick too!

  4. PeeWee? Ugh, don’t get me started!
    Earl Anthony at least behaved himself with self-control and in a dignified manner on the lanes… always fun to watch.

  5. Loved the one with Andy Varipapa if that’s how you spell it. That was also some interesting facts about bowling.

  6. @daveyork0 You’ll get plenty of arguments, some downright nasty, on this question. Many consider Earl Anthony to be the owner of that title. However, love him or hate him, Walter Ray Williams, Jr. is always considered the best as well. All in all, it comes down to a dirty debate over Earl or Walter Ray.

  7. @daveyork0 I’ll tell you one thing no one can deny, Earl Anthony had the smoothest, most consistent, and effortless delivery of anyone I’ve ever seen on the PBA Tour. Bar none!

  8. I’ve actually bowled at this museum. I also met the man who donated the lanes and the pin boy machines to the museum.

  9. Actually, three balls in Ducks and Candles simply gives you 10 points, no bonuses. Strikes and spares are the same as 10-pin.
    Also, Candles are also played in the Eastern Maritimes, as well as Germany and California.

  10. Canada’s version of bowling was five-pin bowling, with five pins (obviously), and rubber bands around the pins to protect them. The ball was about the size of a duckpin ball.
