Chris Hardwick's Dad: Cool Bowler


When our pal Chris Hardwick was last on the show, a year or two ago, he talked a bit about his dad, Billy Hardwick. Billy was one of the greatest professional bowlers of all time, back when bowling was still kind of an important thing in American culture. Chris even bowled on network TV once as a kid, against Jimmy Walker. No word on whether he won.

Via Chris' blog, Nerdist, a commercial starring Billy Hardwick for Miller High Life. Could very well have inspired some of my favorite TV commercials of all time, the High Life Man series directed by Errol Morris.
