A League of Ordinary Gentlemen synopsis

While other minor sports like professional wrestling and auto racing boomed, the once-vibrant pro bowling circuit dwindled after its mid-20th-century heyday, so much so that it neared extinction in the 1990s. In this affectionate documentary, a quartet of professional bowlers discuss life in the big leagues, as famous bowling aficionados like basketball star Charles Barkley, journalist Bernard Goldberg and actor/director Timothy Busfield enthuse about their affection for the sport.
