Bowling is a bit of an every-man sport. Kids do it at birthday parties. Teens use it as an excuse to get away from their parents without any concerns about “safety.” Adults participate in it because it’s one of the better beer-adjacent activities. It’s a game for everyone.
Of course, as most of us have learned by watching ESPN2 on a Sunday afternoon, that means there are also people who take bowling very, very seriously. There are professional bowlers who compete for more money than most of us make in a year. There are “fans” who actually go and watch these professional bowling tournaments. And there is your weirdo uncle who watching bowling on TV all the time and also believes he and his wrist brace might one day make it to the upper echelons of the bowling world.
Well, we hate to break it to your uncle, but if this video is any indication, he doesn’t have a prayer. The guy in the video below not only bowled a perfect game (12 strikes in a row), but he did it in less than a minute and a half.
And you know what? That guy isn’t even a professional bowler. He averages 225! That’s not even close to perfect, but he now appears to be the world record holder for the fastest perfect game in bowling history. So the next time you’re in a fight with your uncle over what to put on TV on a Sunday afternoon, show him this video. He’ll feel so sad about his crushed dreams, he’ll probably let you turn on that Chopped marathon that just always seems to be on.
