Simply Perfect

On Tuesday night, my husband bowled a perfect game. What made this one extra special, is that bowling it put him in an elite class. He is among the very few men* who have bowled a 300 game over 6 decades of bowling seasons. My husband's first came during the 1969/70 season when he was a teenager.  During the early 1990s, when he was dating me and pursuing his dream of being a pro bowler, I watched him bowl a 300 game in a PBA (Professional Bowlers Association) tournament. In 1992 he opened a bowling business which he stills runs today.

Over six decades, styles come and go, but Rob's love for bowling remains the same. Congratulations!

*According to the United States Bowling Congress website, there are only 5 other men who have achieved this. Hopefully, Rob's name will soon be joining theirs in the honors list. It all depends if the records have been sent in to the USBC over the years.

Congratulations to Rob!
