For the first time in 30 years, a bowler nailed a 7-10 split on national television, and the man calling the event rightfully lost his mind.
The near-miracle was accomplished by PBA Tour bowler Anthony Neuer, 18, in the U.S. Open semifinals. It was just the fourth time on record that a bowler picked up a 7-10 split on the PBA Tour — making it much like a perfect game in baseball.
“The ‘Ginger Assassin,’ as Fox Sports play-by-play announcer Rob Stone called him, knocked both pins down to convert the 7-10 in the seventh frame of his match with Jakob Butturff at National Bowling Stadium in Reno, Nevada,” wrote Jace Evans of USA Today.
Stone went berserk following the accomplishment, and his call is undoubtedly worth a quick listen.
Despite the feat and the charged-up call from Stone, the Ginger Assassin went on to lose, 257-203. But hey, he’s only 18, and he made history. For now, that should be reward enough.
