Have you ever seen Detroiters? Man, that show was unbelievable! Seriously, it might be the best new half-hour television comedy of the last 10 years. That’s up for debate, of course, but it was hilarious. How did Detroiters only last two seasons before getting cancelled, but Comedy Central keeps renewing Tosh.0 and other bottom-of-the-barrel bullshit without a second thought? So dumb. And sure, Tim Robinson’s new sketch show on Netflix is good too, but it’s got nothing on Detroiters. It just needed one more season to find an audience. Sadly, that will never happen. It’s a travesty.

Why are we talking about this? Oh yeah! So there’s a scene in an episode of Detroiters—an incredible show that Comedy Central foolishly cancelled after just two seasons because they’re idiots—where Jim Harbaugh makes a cameo. In that scene of the absolutely misunderstood series that had limitless possibilities, the hot-tempered Michigan coach tries his hand at “fowling,” a combination of football and bowling. It actually looked like a lot of fun.

Anyway, we’re letting you know all this because 1. Detroiters was the best and more people need to know about it, and 2. Wauwatosa will soon be home to the area’s first dedicated “Football Bowling” establishment. Milwaukee Record has learned that 1st And Bowl is coming to metro Milwaukee. The business was reportedly eyeing a spot in Milwaukee’s Harbor District last year. However, 1st And Bowl will be opening at 2969 N. 114th St, Wauwatosa, which is situated just across from the Mayfair Collection. According to the forthcoming football bowling bar’s Facebook page, 1st And Bowl is expected to open this summer.

Check back for updates on 1st And Bowl. And pour one out for Detroiters.
