The Sounds of Bowling
By Alexander Someillan
Bowling has been a popular activity In the US for decades, and Athletes and Spectators alike enjoy the thrill of the strikes and the camaraderie the sports brings.
“As soon as I walk into Bird Bowl and I hear the pins dropping, It really excites me and gets me ready to bowl,” said Barbara Dominguez, Avid Bowler. The Sounds of Bowling are more important to the game than most might think. In fact, many might say it is the most important aspect.
Bowler, Lance Benson said, “I personally think that the sounds you hear when you walk into the bowling alley really just completes the experience. From the pins dropping, the arcade button mashing, and even the food being made is simply just perfect”
As Benson said, the sounds heard in a bowling alley don’t just come from the pins dropping, but also the arcade. The arcade in Bird Bowl specifically, includes a wide variety of games. From Pac-Man to Galaga, there really is no shortage of games to play.
And those very sounds from Pac-Man and other games alike are what completes the bowling experience.
“When I’m bowling and I hear games storming form the arcade, it really takes me back to a simpler times when I used to come with my parents at a younger age,” said Paul Axelrod, a regular at Bird Bowl.
As Axelrod said, a common factor shared among many veteran bowlers is the flashbacks of bowling at a younger age. And all those trips have just one thing in common – the sounds they heard.
