A sellout crowd at Landmark Lanes in Milwaukee was treated to a high-stakes bowl-off last night.
Bucks forward and unofficial mayor of Milwaukee, Bobby Portis, squared off against Drink Wisconsinbly’s accountant, Al, in a long-awaited grudge match. While we’re not one hundred percent sure how these two developed a grudge, the important thing is they had one, and we, the bowling public, got a front-row seat as they settled it in a best-of-three showdown.
The inaugural Drink Wisconsinbly Bowling with the Champ event raised money for the Bobby Portis Foundation. And that’s a good thing, because bowling is possibly the only athletic pursuit where Bobby could lose to an accountant. And he did.
Al took the first two games. Then Bobby proposed they play a third, with the loser doing push-ups. And Al won again, barely. So Bobby dropped and did 20.
Before the match, Bobby signed autographs and took photos with fans. Al did too, but we cannot confirm that anybody took him up on it.
