The Luckiest Strike Ever

Sometimes, a gutter ball isn’t truly a gutter ball as this bowler shows.

I’ve always wanted this to happen to me but while I wait, I can bask in someone else’s glory. The bowler’s throw landed right in the gutter and as far as everyone was concerned, that was the end of the round. But the bowling ball had other ideas. It managed to bounce out, back onto the lane, and knock all the pins down. STRIKE! Or was it? As someone in the comments stated, “If pins are knocked down by a ball that has entered the gutter, or by a ball bouncing off the rear cushion, they do not count, and are re-spotted.” Damn. But who cares, it was still cool to see.
