‘Fowling’ Could It Be The Next Big Sport? [VIDEO]
From the Huffington Post comes a report of a Detroit man with a new business idea called "Fowling" which is a football/bowling hybrid sport. Chris Hutt, owner of the Fowling Warehouse, along with some of his buddies invented the game while tailgating at the Indy 500.
The warehouse has 20 lanes where players or teams attempt to knock down their opponents 10 bowling pins by throwing a football from about 48 feet away.
In Hutts first month of business there were only 29 strikes thrown in 100,000 games. Many patrons of Hutt's Fowling Warehouse calls the game challenging but fun! What's not to love? Hutt's business has a 175 seat beer garden and a stage for live bands. A speedy way to end a Fowling match is to throw a "Bonk," which is when a player knocks the middle pin, and only the middle pin, off the board on the very first throw! But all the rest of the pins need to remain standing.
One of Hutt's customers, Peter Grace said, "It's just a great place to hang out. You get the best of both worlds. You're bowling and you're playing football at the same time."
