“Ahead of I smashed anything with a hammer, I was able to pull one particular of the cinder blocks on the side out and acquire a peek,” Olson said. “I noticed a bunch of sand and 50 % of a black and blue sphere, and that’s when I was intrigued and begun brushing the sand off of it and realized it was a bowling ball.”
He then commenced to dig even more into the sand and realized there was not just a single ball underneath his stoop — ahead of he realized it he uncovered 15 bowling balls. Considering that he had no concept how long the balls had been there, or how they bought there, Olson referred to as the maker, Brunswick Bowling Items, to verify that none of the products made use of to make the balls experienced turned harmful.
Olson claimed Brunswick confirmed they were being thoroughly clean and had him take photos. Some balls had serial figures and engravings that dated back again to the 1950’s, the very same time body in which Olson’s house was created. Nonetheless, it can be unclear when they have been put below the property.
All in all, Olson pulled out 158 bowling balls from beneath his home — and he mentioned it may perhaps just be the commencing.
“Encompassing the cement staircase is a patio produced of paver blocks, and a couple were being unlevel so I took them out… and I ran into a few extra balls,” he claimed. “I’m about 75% sure that there are just as quite a few balls in the floor as there are out, it’s possible even far more.”
As significantly as what he is doing with them, it is a bit of a combined bag. He is specified some of them absent, but he and his wife approach to be imaginative with the rest — this kind of as utilizing them as decorative pavers in their lawn.
