    There once was a sporting goods store in Bowling Green back in the late 80’s early 90’s called All About Sports. Does anybody remember where it was located. I bought a model 25n Marlin .22 there but can’t for the life of me remember where the store was located.

    Lexington had something similar too off Man O War in the Tates Creek area. Can’t remember if it was the exact same name or not but you could also get nice “secondhand” items there as well.

    Yes it was, then Kmart I think, used to eat at ponderosa all the time. Then they moved across the street. Went and saw Saturday night fever at the cinemas there when it came out.

    Yeah I remember All about sports. It was in Erlanger on Dixie Highway. Before that it was a small grocery store on one side and van lunens on the other side. I bagged groceries at the grocery store in 1978. All about sports took it over sometime around 86-87.
