Sports World

A few years ago a few work friends and I decided that we all needed to get together outside of work and do something super fun. We decided that we should go miniature golfing. When rain was forecasted for the day we all had off Bob came up with another option. Sports World. At Sports World, which I was just learning about,  there are arcade games, batting cages, bumper cars and best of all, indoor miniature golf! It sounded perfect. 

We loaded up Bob's car. He *thought* he remembered where it was and how to get there. So off we went.
Yayyyy! Sports World!!!
We drove for a while, looking for it along the road, until we determined that we passed it or went the wrong way. 
Where could it be? :(

We stopped somewhere so that Bob could call someone and ask where it is. Chelsea and I went into the Starbucks and got some yummy frapuccinos so that the day wouldn't be wasted.
We changed seats when we made the stop.
Bob got the location and we got back on the road. Back the way we came. We scoured the buildings we passed for the elusive sports world. After going up and down the Rt. 46 a couple of times we found it! It was literally a hole in the ground. Bulldozed to the ground and cleared away. 
Pile of dirt where Sports World used to be.
Sad and defeated, we cut our losses and headed to a restaurant for an early dinner. On the way there we saw some other places we could have gone instead.
Carpet World: Not Sports World.
Boater's World: Not Sports World.
 We also spotted the coolest vehicle in the whole (not sports) world!

  1. Haha! There weren't enough 'worlds' IMO. :)

  2. Ohhhhh, sad!!! This is why one should always Google your destination before leaving the house ;)

  3. Reminds me of the time my family and I piled into a car to take an hour-long drive to a restaurant my grandma's senile boyfriend told us about. I asked my mom if she had looked for directions, and she hadn't, and I tried to give her the most significant look in the world. I was not at all surprised, but all kinds of furious, when sure enough we arrived and the place had long been replaced by something else. We ate at a Red Lobster when there was one that was NOT an hour away at home.
