Another piece of Pollack memory. While we were in Norfolk Naval Shipyard in
1968 and 1969, we formed a bowling league. The officer team was named "The
Bubbas." I had never had a bowling ball in my hands before but was pressed
into service since duty watchstanders limited available bodies. Our scores
were further reduced by Bob Lindsay calling for a "beer frame" EVERY frame
and Doc Legoski sneaking in lots of cheap wine (and sharing a sip or two).
At the end of the season, trophies were presented. Not unexpected, The
Bubbas came in last. Attached is a picture of our last place "trophy", the
only bowling trophy I ever "won."
