    Donald Trump Jr. posted a video on social media Saturday of his family using the White House bowling alley. In the short clip, his wife, Vanessa, is seen bowling — heels and all! “Family bowling session at The White House. [VanessaTrump] doing pretty well considering she’s in heels,” Trump Jr tweeted. The bowling alley is used more by White House staffers, Secret Service and the occasional party loyalist than presidents. It’s not clear if former President Barack Obama ever used the lane, though he reportedly spent his 48th birthday bowling at Camp David. Obama did catch grief for a plan...

    If you’ve ever seen The Big Lebowski, you’ll recognise this photograph of President Richard Nixon bowling, which infamously loomed over the Dudes tiki bar in the cult Coen brothers film. It is in fact a real photograph of Nixon and as I recently discovered, in 1969 the former President added his own secret one-lane bowling alley in the basement of the the White House just a few years before the Watergate scandal broke– and it’s still there today.

    Unless I was out of town, this summer I have bowled almost every day wearing my Trump hat and have managed to convert people, even millenials. Up in lights on the scoreboard I have used several names: Lock Her Up, Hillary Sux, Never Hillary, No Hillary, No Hillary Ever, Hillary Is Evil --- well, you get the point. Some people don't like it, but too bad. It gives me a chance to have conversations. Here are today's scores:

    During open bowling, I have used Obama Sucks and other attacks on the community organizer from Kenya. But lately, it is time to go after Hillary. When you bowl, have some extra fun and put up a name to insult her or cause a conversation. I may have changed a guy's mind yesterday after he commented on the name and I educated him. On another note, it might be interesting for Trump to have "bowling night" fundraiser across the country and give a live speech broadcast at bowling alleys across the country. Then some bowling with Hillary pins. If the...

    OWASSO, Oklahoma - An Owasso man was arrested for maiming after an apparent brawl at a bowling alley. James Thomas Foster bit the ear off another man during a fight at the Coffee Creek bowling alley, according to court documents. Court records state two groups of people were bowling in adjoining lanes on August 31, 2014. One group was a mother, father and daughter; the other group was made up of about seven girls. The mother told police she accidentally knocked over a drink on the shared table between the lanes, and that sparked an argument. The group of girls...

    A doctor who contracted Ebola was discharged from a hospital on Tuesday after weeks of isolation treatment for the virus and was cheered by New Yorkers from City Hall to the Harlem apartment building where he lives. The release of Dr. Craig Spencer, 33, who worked with Ebola patients in Guinea and had been held at Bellevue Hospital Center since he was diagnosed with the virus on Oct. 23, will mean no one in the United States is being treated for the disease, according to media reports. Spencer appeared at a news conference Tuesday morning, standing alongside New York City...

    Well, we had a good run: 6 days with no new Ebola cases. I mean, we’re no longer talking about fly over so it must be serious: Ebola in New York? Specifically, Ebowling in New York. The latest Ebola patient is a doc recently returned from his Doctors Without Borders stint in West Africa. He wisely called for a hazmat team to take him to the hospital Thursday morning, butt oddly he went bowling in Brooklyn the night before (via subway). I admire the doc’s good deeds butt maybe our “Doctors Without Borders” should be “Doctors WITH Borders” for their first...

    Big news out of the White House this week is that the General Service Administration was finally getting around to tackling the all-important bowling alley renovations for White House staffers. Just more shovel-ready, infrastructure jobs to improve the economy. This from The bowling alley was recently photographed by POLITICO, which described “chipped lanes and worn-out shoes” in the basement getaway. “It has been fifteen years since these lanes have had any professional, industry standard maintenance, modifications, repairs or attention,” the GSA wrote in the posting. “They are now irreparable. So it was proposed by the GSA that they...

    There’s a reasonable amount of conjecture in the markets right now about whether things are getting a bit overheated. Wiser minds than us have been vexed by the topic of asset price bubbles, so we’ll leave that to one aside. But the current discussion about market conditions still led us to stumble upon what is surely one of the most interesting periods of market euphoria in America’s history: the 1961 boom (and subsequent bust) in ten-pin bowling stocks. (Hat-tip to Reuters, which highlighted the bowling bubble in its analysis this week).

    When I was in grade school, I remember going to birthday parties at the local bowling alley. Before the games would begin, the workers would install bumpers inside the gutters in order to prevent gutter balls and avoid "failure." When I was growing up, it was common for sports teams to award trophies to all the players so no little kid would have his or her feelings hurt at the end of the season. Today, there are school districts which no longer give out "F'" grades, and hundreds of high schools have removed class ranks so that my generation...

    Thursday, March 29, 2012 Rick Santorum stops young man from bowling with pink ball"Friends don't let friends use pink balls." (NEWSER) -- Rick Santorum bowls a good game, but gay rights groups say he talks an offensive one. "You’re not gonna' use the pink ball. We’re not gonna' let you do that, not on camera," he told a young man while bowling with college Republicans in Wisconsin yesterday, the Raw Story reports. "Friends don't let friends use pink balls," he added. Critics say Santorum's remarks are just the latest in a long line of insensitive statements. "He’s proven that he thinks LGBT...

    MIAMI (AP) — Don Carter, the bowling great with the unorthodox style who flourished as a genuine sports celebrity during the game's golden age on TV, has died. He was 85. Carter died at his home in Miami on Thursday night, the Professional Bowlers Association said Friday. He recently was hospitalized with pneumonia complicated by emphysema. Carter, known as "Mr. Bowling," was the game's original superstar. He became his sport's most recognizable name at a time when alleys were thriving across the country and bowling was starting to assert itself as a fixture on television. Carter was a leading force...
