On this day in 1982, the first person ever was killed by a bowling ball. I mean, while bowling. Kinda surprised it took so long, right? Because I occasionally bowl with other assorted savages, and things usually get out of hand pretty fast, what with all the drinking and loutish behavior a bowling alley naturally inspires. At least in the proletariat bowling alleys I roll in. I do understand the Millennials have made bowling a semi-ironic hipster thing in their special bars, but hey, that’s their thing. Anyway, the act of drunk people hurling hard and heavy orbs around? Things are bound to go sideways, eventually. But it took until 1982. Go figure.
