During the recent World Bowling Championships in Dubai, Team USA bowler Bill O’Neill rolled what sure looked like a strike to us. But the damned laws of physics got in his way and his sure thing was turned into a spare.
Chad McClean breaks the world record for most strikes in a minute, running from alley to alley and knocking down 10 pins on 9 of his 15 attempts. Not a great average, but still an impressive feat.
If you try to bowl a perfect 300 game across a normal game, your odds are pretty damn low. But if you attempt to knock down 200 of the pins in the first frame, you might have a better chance.
It’s the final frame of Josh Scanlon’s round at the Team USA bowling trials; he rolls 2 strikes before attempting a third, but things go slightly awry. Too bad the pins he hits don’t count. (Thanks Jon!)
Pro bowler Chris Barnes takes on EARL (Enhanced Automated Robotic Launcher) capable of rolling an identical shot nearly every time. But its precision is its downfall. The score stands: humans 1, robots 0.
