Bowling Novel?

On the bathroom wall of a bathroom stall of Baylor University's Philosophy Department appeared these words in Autumn 1975:

"By God, don't say I'm afraid to come to your town . . . and bowl!"

From: The Great American Bowling Novel.

Better a bowling novel than a bowel-ing novel, I guess. Or a howling novel, for that matter.

But would a bowling novel have the ghost of a chance at attaining the level of "Great American Novel"? Hardly anybody bowls anymore. Just think of Fred Flintstone and the bowling league he played in. At the time, that seemed so quintessentially American. It now makes the cartoon seem ever so dated.
