    Bowler bowls for 5 days straight

    I personally find it ridiculous they allow this to count despite him bowling a FIVE in one game. Whatever, enjoy your 15 minutes.

    If someone is bowling a FIVE, it's time to bring those bumpers into play.

    Still a pretty good record, back in high school we had a tournament in Illinois where we bowled 8 singles games then 12 bakers (5 bowlers..switch frames) in a row. I was sore for days and towards the end bowling pretty ineffectively. I could have a broken arm and be drunk and still bowl higher than 5, though.

    Exactly. You have 20 rolls and you can only knock down 5 pins. Get out of here.

    Yeah I think the lowest score I got in high school was a 110, I can't even imagine bowling a 5. My girl cousins who don't even try can bowl 40s. I'd have to try to get a 5.

    Something tells me that around 3am after four straight days of bowling it would be pretty easy to zone out and blow a game here or there. Mountain out of a molehill guys.

    20 rolls. 5 pins. I'm just saying that ain't bowling.

    I just think the whole thing is ridiculous myself. But as an outsider, I'm just thinking we are dealing with a World Record here...shouldn't there be better quality control?
