Ella Crum - Pool Shark
This story originally aired in 1997. Here's what we said about it then:
Ella Crum is an 88-year-old who is not giving in to the advancing years. In fact, to use her own words, she's better now than she's ever been, at bowling that is. Ella carries a 145 average, and on the afternoon we spent with her, she bowled a 156 and a 189.
She's also an avid cribbage player and a very competitive pool player.
At her bar, the Koffee Korner, she hosts a mixed league 2 or 3 nights a week. Ella's the only woman and the oldest person, by a long shot, on her team. But the night we visited, she showed us that she's no fluke.
Morgan and Ella bowl and we stick around for the pool league. We get the comments of those that have known her and competed with and against her, and we get some health and longevity advice from her.
