    All they needed was 1 pin and Rodney didn’t break the tie…

    back when commercials were cool, and the miller light label was even cooler.

    I remember this as well as I bowled in a Scratch league in the Center that the commercial was filmed in. All leagues were cancelled that week to film it. It was called Fiebles Recreation Center in Teaneck, NJ. It was 2 levels. The upper level is where they filmed and yes, those were permanent cushion stadium seats behind the lanes. 5 rows worth. A fun time for sure. Center is long gone.

    Yes. He was as awesome in person as on the field. Natural comic timing, and all around good guy. Having met the big names of yesteryear AND today there’s just no comparison.

    Are you refering to the recently R.I.P. Bubba Smith?
