Those pins didn’t stand a chance.

The second from the left looks like my wife … in the 70′s.
Shine on Ladies. Shine on.
St. Bartholomew, Patron Saint of Polyester.
Why does every taken in the 70 look exactly like it was taken in the 70s…you never have to guess at the years of the awkwardness.
And then they are off to the Friday night fish fry.
There exists, somewhere, a picture of my mother and her team in the 60′s that looks just like this. It looks just as bizarre after all these years.
I have the same picture of my grandfather and his bowling team. It must be the go-to bowling team photo pose.
I love these ladies!!!!
bowling,bowling,bowling…get those balls a’rollin….that lady second to left is one of the coolest moms ever!!
My Morse code may be rusty but I think they’ve spelled out “Babes” …
Hey…watch it buddy! That’s my Mom you’re talking about! (second from the left)
Good luck Kimmy!!!
None of those flashy colored balls with swirls for these gals…just your good ol’ classic black balls for the church ladies.
Those were prop balls Only the sponsored team from the house got to use their own balls.
My mom was an all star, her sponsor was Bonanza Lanes
These ladies look like a lot of fun! And they’re dressed so nice for bowling!
omg, so funny Im from MI now living in CA and I see “Bonanza” and think, where in the heck else would they have a crazy name like that and then see Warren, MI. And its true, the ladies look like prof bowlers, from someone who grew up around bowlers, lol.
Same here and my mom was on that pro team that was sponsored by the lanes. Their hair looked the same way but they got to use their own balls instead of the props. Oh and shirts. with PATCHES! lol
Sure doesn’t strike me as awkward. Didn’t bowl me over, either. Guess I don’t have enough time to spare,but maybe it’s right up your lane.
Can’t quite ‘pin’point the pun,but you are sure on the ball.
LOL Very well done! You spared no rolls; just glad your mind wasn’t in the gutter!
This isn’t awkward. These are just older women on a bowling team. So… Am I missing something?
Oh Maureen. (Sigh) Yes, you’re missing something.
No…this is not awkward. A little goofy perhaps but not awkward.
Those are some real “pin-ups”.
Holy cow! I remember Bonanza at 10 Mile & Hoover. For the record, this looked old fashioned even in the 70′s.
Shout out to the ladies: Warren, Bonanza Lanes, Riteway and 78-79!
