So Orlando wants to build its own bowling stadium in an attempt to wrest away the U.S. Bowling Congress tournaments from Reno and its bowling stadium, pictured. Let's compare the two cities to see whose bowling stadium should rule.
Activities for kids/families
RENO: The arcades in the casinos, Wild Island
ORLANDO: Disney World/Epcot/Downtown Disney, Universal, Sea World
Trials that garnered national attention
RENO: James Biela
ORLANDO: Casey Anthony
ORLANDO: Toll roads
People bet on . . .
RENO: Pro and college sports
RENO: Collapse of tourism, construction, and gaming industries; foreclosures
ORLANDO: Collapse of tourism, construction, and space-related industries; foreclosures
RENO: Sunny most days, dry summers, snow in winter and spring
ORLANDO: Sunny, stormy, humid, hurricanes
RENO: Nevada Wolf Pack, Reno Aces
ORLANDO: Orlando Magic, Grapefruit League
RENO: Westboro Baptist Church
RENO: I-80 and Hwy 395
ORLANDO: I-4, Fla. Turnpike, toll roads
Visitors arrive in the airport from . . .
RENO: Las Vegas, San Francisco, Salt Lake City
ORLANDO: Everywhere else
RENO: Lake Tahoe, Sierra Nevada
ORLANDO: Wekiva Springs
Seniors busy . . .
RENO: Playing bingo
ORLANDO: Driving to the 4 PM senior dinner specials
State known for . . .
RENO: Gambling, brothels, silver, gold, deserts, wild horses, Area 51, Harry Reid
ORLANDO: Disney, oranges, warm winters, space program, Super Bowls, Marco Rubio, hurricanes
You get to watch . . .
RENO: Burning Man
ORLANDO: Shuttle launches (until now)
Who would want to live there?
RENO: Brothel workers and exotic dancers
ORLANDO: Spiritualists and fortune tellers
So Reno should keep the USBC, and in the words of Paul Taglia-Boo, Orlando should build a museum or something. QED.
