Owner takes bowling way too farby Eric Schwartz
Maybe he even glued down a few of the pins to drive the bowlers there nuts?
Hey it’s all in the name of good practical joking right?
Not with this whack job.
Steven Henry Smink, the operator of Pike Lanes Family Fun Center in Deerfield, was arrested Tuesday for the conspiracy to burn down Loyle Lanes, destroying Vineland’s only bowling alley. Felix Antonio Manzano (21) and a 17-year-old boy in connection with the Jan. 11 blaze were also arrested.
Talk about sick. What could have possibly gone through Smink’s mind? If he was losing customers to a rival ally, he could have thought about lowering prices, making special deals or updating his equipment. Instead he hired a couple young men to do the unthinkable.
I hope Smink gets the book thrown at him. And while he is in jail he should be banned from any type of activities. He took bowling away from Vineland residents, the system should all recreation away from him.
How did we get to this point? When I think of amateur bowling, I think about Bob Saget making bad impressions while showing clips like this on America’s Funniest Home Videos.
