"In the ninth frame of the third game I rang a 10 pin. Then a messenger came and took it out. Thank God."
Well, it's happened again. Someone else has rolled a sanctioned 900 series. Andrew Mank of Bellville, Ill. became only the 15th person ever to bowl a USBC approved 900 series for three games. He did it on March 18, 2010 in his Thursday Men's Handicap League.
The 22-year-old has now set his sights even higher. He wants to be the first to shoot a 900 in a sanctioned sport league and, ultimately, he plans to turn pro. You can read the whole story here.
I know that some will say that, sanctioned or not, the lanes must have been walled up for this young man to do what he did. Maybe. Maybe not. But I don't care how easy the lanes might have been. It's still amazing to carry 36 strikes in a row in league, and the USBC approved it. Congratulations, Andrew.
