Arlington Blows a Rack
Yes, indeed, the United States Bowling Congress is bringing its pins and its balls to Arlington -- it's a five-bagger! And they're not taking it well in Milwaukee, where they tried to pick up the spare and keep the 2.3-million member organization (and 230 jobs and $12 million). Here's a piece of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel story that moved a short time ago:
The move was viewed as a major disappointment in Milwaukee, where officials hoped to keep the group here. The USBC also means the loss of approximately 230 jobs and a $12 million payroll. The move represents another public-relations hit to Milwaukee, which had long viewed itself as a mecca for bowling.
Bowling heaven, thy name is Arlington. And that's no rug-jerker. Or ... something.--Robert Wilonsky
