Michael Moore crisscrossed America to make “Bowling for Columbine.” Mike Walsh crisscrossed America to bowl. An Ohio native now living in Chicago (within walking distance of four bowling alleys, he says), Walsh quit his job to go bowling in every state of the union. The result is a travelogue entitled “Bowling Across America: 50 States in Rented Shoes,” published recently by St. Martin’s Press. Walsh gives Oklahoma 5 1/2 pages - two more than Texas – with an obligatory paeon to Route 66, a stop at antique store in Chandler and, finally, knocking down pins at Sooner Bowl in Norman with a league team dubbed “The Old Guys” whose oldest member is 92. The book was inspired by the author’s father. His ambition to play handball in each of the 50 states was never realized. “Bowling Across America” is a throw down memory lane. Have a ball and read it sometime.
