I'm going to tell you a very funny story
about my younger brother and the Stadium Bowling alley. The stadium
Bowling alley on Bloomfield ave, just up the street from the city
Stadium was a place where we as kids could pick up a few bucks as
Well just before they installed the automatic pin setting machine
and a few years before they had that terrible fire my brother and
three of his friends were waiting around for some lanes to open
Bored they went to the back of the alley and found a set of steps
that lead to the ceiling. The bowling alley had a high roof and
the ceiling, for acoustical reason was suspended about 5 feet.
Just enough room for four little jerks to walk on. Why? To this

With in minutes the rest of the ceiling came crashing down with
them in it. No one got hurt, but it sure made a mess of thing.
With in hours the whole neighborhood was laughing.
