Daniel helps a bowler who got robbed of a perfect game earn his place in the history books. (7:53)

- EVERYBODY'S COME DOWNTO CHECK THIS OUT.

LOOKING FOR PERFECTION--300.

- COME ON, BALL.

- OH, MY GOD.- OH, NO.

- HOLY COW.DID YOU SEE THAT?

[all groaning]

- AND 297--

- 297 IS THE END RESULT

FOR TROY WALKER

AFTER ONE OFTHE MOST BIZARRE THINGS

I'VE EVER SEENIN THE GAME OF BOWLING.

- I'D HATE TO BE HIS WIFETONIGHT.

THAT'S TROY,AND WHEN THAT RAKE CAME DOWN

AND RUINED HIS PERFECT GAME,

YOU COULD HAVE HEARDA PIN DROP,

BUT YOU DIDN'T,BECAUSE THE RAKE CAME DOWN.

A PERFECT GAME IS AS EXCITINGAS BOWLING GETS,

RIGHT AFTER WATCHING A KIDLOSE HIS ARM IN THE BALL RETURN.

KNOCKING DOWN TEN PINSDOESN'T SOUND THAT IMPRESSIVE,

BUT KEEP IN MIND,FOR MOST BOWLERS,

JUST ROLLING OUT OF BED

AND USING THEIR WIPING STICK

IS AN ACHIEVEMENT.

BOWLING IS GOLFFOR NASCAR FANS.

IT'S THE ONLY SPORTTHAT REQUIRES YOU

TO BE MORBIDLY OBESE,A LIFELONG SMOKER,

AND DRESS LIKE CHARLIE SHEEN.

AND YOU STILL GETTO CALL YOURSELF AN ATHLETE.

IT'S GOOD EXERCISE,IF YOU ALSO CONSIDER

GETTING UP FROM THE COUCH

TO THROW AWAY YOUR ARBY'S BAGEXERCISE.

IF IT WEREN'T FOR BOWLING,

YOU HILL PEOPLE WOULD GOYOUR WHOLE LIVES

WITHOUT USING A COMPUTER.

AND IF YOU HAVE A BOWLING ALLEYIN YOUR HOUSE,

YOU DON'T DESERVE TO BE RICH.

WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITEBOWLING MOVIE?

MINE'S BOWLING FOR COLUMBINE.

SEEN IT 100 TIMES.

ALWAYS LIFTS THE SPIRITS.

THERE'S A SIMPLE TESTTO DETERMINE

IF YOU SHOULD BE BOWLING.

ASK YOURSELF,"AM I GOING TO

A SIX-YEAR-OLD'SBIRTHDAY PARTY?"

BUT IF TROY WANTS TO BOWL,I SAY LET'S ROLL.

THAT'S WHY I BOUGHT HIMA GREYHOUND TICKET TO L.A.

FOR THIS WEEK'SWEB REDEMPTION.

[applause]

- WAY OUT WEST,THERE WAS THIS FELLA--

A FELLA I WANTTO TELL YOU ABOUT.

CALLED HIMSELF THE DUDE.

- [grunts]

[sighs]

WHITE RUSSIANWITH A DASH OF EMERGEN-C.

THESE BOWLING ALLEYSARE DISGUSTING.

THANK YOU, BARTENDER.

- ROUGH DAY?

- YEAH, MAN.

GUY PISSED ON MY RUGIN MY HOUSE

THAT TIED THE WHOLE ROOMTOGETHER.

- I WAS ROBBEDOF A PERFECT GAME.

I HEAR YOU.

- I DON'T BELIEVE WE'VE MET.

I'M THE DUDE...

OR THE DUDESTER,THE EL DUDERINO,

IF BREVITYISN'T YOUR THING.

- NAME IS TROY, TROY WALKER.

- TROY WALKER.

I LIKE YOU, TROY.

TROY, WHEN I WATCHED YOUR VIDEO,I THOUGHT IT WAS

THE MOST HEARTBREAKING THINGI'VE EVER SEEN.

TELL ME ABOUT THAT DAY.

- BOWLING MY PERFECT GAME.

FIRST 11 FRAMES--STRIKES.

GET TO THE 12TH ONE,RACK COMES DOWN,

PREVENTS IT.

- OH, MY GOD.

HOLY COW.DID YOU SEE THAT?

- WHY DID THE RAKE COME DOWN?

- I PUSHED A BUTTON,AND THE BOWLING CENTER

SET UP THE PINSON THE WRONG LANE.

- YOU WANTED SOME PINSCLEARED OFF A DIFFERENT LANE.

- YEAH.

- THEY PRESSED THE WRONG BUTTON

AND ACCIDENTALLY CLEAREDYOUR LANE.

- YES.

- HOO!

DID ANY PART OF YOUWANT TO START GOING CRAZY?

- NOTHING I COULD DO ABOUT ITBUT BOWL IT AGAIN.

- IT WAS JUST SO FUN TO WATCH

SOMEONE SO CLOSETO PERFECTION,

AND THEN LIKE MOST AMERICANS,

YOU'RE JUST ROOTING FOR THEMTO FAIL.

AND THEN, BAM,THE GODS INTERJECT.

- [laughs]

- WAS THAT THE FIRST 300 GAME

YOU WERE GONNA EVER ROLL?

- NO.

- HOW MANY HAVE YOU ROLLED?- 45.

- GOOD NIGHT!

THE ANNOUNCERS KEPT SAYINGIT WAS A BRUTAL OIL PATTERN.

- YOU HAD THE FIRST 11--

VERY BRUTAL OIL PATTERN HERE.

- ON LEAGUES,YOU GOT MORE OIL

IN THE MIDDLE OF THE LANE.

TOURNAMENTS, THE OIL--

MORE OIL TOWARDS THE GUTTERS.

- YOU A STROKER, CRANKER,OR TWEENER?

- CRANKER.- AH.

I JUST LOOKED THOSE TERMS UPON WIKIPEDIA.

NO IDEA WHAT THEY MEAN.

ARE YOU A PROFESSIONAL?

- USED TO BE.- WHY'D YOU QUIT?

- TOO MUCH RED TAPE.

THEY WANT YOU TO DO THIS.

YOU CAN WEAR THIS.YOU CAN'T WEAR THAT.

- WHAT ABOUT THE SHOES?

WHY DO WE NEED THESE SHOES?

- SO THEY SLIDEON THE APPROACHES.

TENNIS SHOES WON'T SLIDE.

- NO ONE NEEDS TO SLIDE

IF YOU'RE NOT GOODAT BOWLING.

- TRUE.

- I THOUGHTIT WAS BECAUSE OF,

LIKE, SCUFFING THE FLOOR.

- SCUFFING THE FLOOR--- NO, IT DOESN'T.

IT DOESN'T SCUFF THE FLOOR.

SO WHY DON'T THEY JUST LET USWEAR TENNIS SHOES?

IT IS A SCAM FOR MONEYAND THE FOOT SPRAY INDUSTRY.

- OH, THE SPRAY IS HORRIBLE,YEAH.

- FOOT SPRAY INDUSTRY.

$2-BILLION-A-YEAR INDUSTRYIS WHAT I'M TOLD.

FAVORITE BOWLING MOVIEOF ALL TIME.
