Chicago 2016 Update: Chicago in if bowling included for 2016 Games?

2016 Update

Ah, I just got a funny image in my head after reading this story, which originally appeared in the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel.

The inclusion of bowling in the 2016 Olympics could actually happen, according to the story. Thing is, the World Tenpin Bowling Association has an amateurs-only rule for bowling on the international stage, unlike, say, basketball.

Just think of this, though: beer-guzzling, brat-chomping Chicagoans cheering for American bowlers at Lucky Strike Lanes, or wherever the events would be held. Very Happy Gilmore-esque, no?

This is Chicago 2016. This is the true spirit of the Olympics, not that dainty pairs figure skating stuff.
