One Response to “Tom Kouros—R.I.P.”

  1. Dave Halun Says:

    My Dad, who was a friend of Tom’s when he was a teen, told me that Tom was trying out a new ball & shoes for the first time. The first ball he rolled snapped into the pocket, sending all the pins into the pit, but one lone pin kicked back up, hit the bottom of the rack, and stuck the landing in the 5 pin spot. Tom purportedly took the ball and the shoes, put them in his bag, drove to the nearest bridge, and tossed them over into the river.
