Something funny, or at least entertaining

I went to a working class gay bar oriented towards Bears in the City of Detroit last night and found something going on that was so quintessentially Michigan that it touched me. I got there and the big husky guys were engaged in a very competitive game of bowling via the Nintendo Wii, where a large projection screen had been set up on one wall of the bar. Bowling is a central part of Detroit and Michigan life, as well as Illinois and Wisconsin life, so it figures that these guys would enjoy playing a bowling game at a bar, but it still struck me as being mildly amusing. I mean, my conception of the place before I went there was that it was a sort of bad ass leather bar, and for all I know the guys there were in fact into leather, but they were also normal dudes doing a normal thing in their regular bar.
