Homer Simpson posited, If horse racing is the sport of kings, then surely bowling is . . . a very good sport, as well. Whats kept it from absolute perfection? How about shoe rentals, arm-straining equipment, blaring music, and seizure-inducing lights?
Nintendos Wii Sports changed the game forever. Using the motion-sensing Wii remote game controller, a simple sway of the arm and a flick of the wrist is enough to send a ball hurtling toward those troublesome pins. Heathers Wild Hare sweetens the deal when it hosts the weekly Wii Bowling Tournament. Strike out every Wednesday when the virtual lanes open with a $5 buy-in and a winner-take-all cash prize. Non-kingpins can console themselves with $3 shots and Bud Lights.
