Bowling with the Animal

It's true. I had the pleasure of bowling with George 'the Animal' Steele. Mike North and WSCR radio used to have a Bowl-A-Thon for charity and the event attracted all sorts of celebrities. Steele was winding down his wrestling career at this point, but he was still quite a character. No, he did not eat any pins.

George was active during the Bruno Sammartino days. Maybe even a bit after. The green tongue was compliments of food coloring. He was one funny guy.
