Fowling is a mix of American Football and Bowling that was invented by accident:
In 2001, Chris Hutt and his friends from Detroit, MI built a bowling alley in the RV parking lot at the Indianapolis 500 race track for their traditional tailgate recreation. Their construction efforts failed to withstand the force of the bowling ball crashing into the wooden backstop and resulted in deeming the activity as a safety hazard. The bowling was called off by Hutt and his friends who proceeded to toss around a football for leisure during their tailgate. Meanwhile the bowling lane setup and pins remained in positioned while playing catch with the football. A stray football accidentally struck the pins, knocking them down and the sport of fowling was born at that very instant
Because Thorsten is back in the D for a business trip we went fowling with some colleagues at the Fowling Warehouse.
