I still have my AMF Amflite Magic Line finger tip bowling ball from Maurie Mages that I bought when I was in high school early 60's. They did such a good fit job that I would never give it up. I'm 70 and still keep a 180 average.

Michael Kirby's was a great rink, however, growing up at Oakley Playground at 50th & Oakley in the 50's was perfect. We always had beautiful and smooth ice. Our group would water it down each night to have smooth ice after school. The only thing missing was an organ. LOL

It seemed back in the 50's the funeral homes were as busy as the taverns, at least it felt that way when you were a kid.
