Bowling Record Reset, Twice

If you really can track American communities by asking how often people go bowling, then maybe this is good: Dave Wilson set a world record last year by bowling for 64 consecutive hours. Then he lost the record. A Canadian who had never bowled in his life went 100 hours. Now Wilson has struck back. The American bowled 102 hours, raising money along the way for a children's foundation and for breast cancer research.
