I need to make a correction to the original story. The guy wasn't bowling in Drug Trade, but rather a mixed league at the other end of the center. He often subs in the men's league so that's why I thought he did it in that league. In either case congrats to him.

Well it's official, Mr. Jerome's 900 is sanctioned. This is of course his new personal best, topping his 857 in the same house in the aforementioned Drug Trade set on November 2, 2008.

That video is amazing. I've never seen non-bowling people talk like that. There is hope for this sport.

I haven't seen a news team work together so well in my life. There could be a horrific plane crash and only one reporter would know anything about it usually. Not only did the field reporter do his homework, but the anchors did as well and followed it up with their own research interview with Danny Wiseman. Most news teams don't even do research on big news stories, they just read someone's blog or regurgitate what comes over the AP wire.

I still don't think it was the biggest story for Baltimore this past year, I think Michael Phelps might have that one since 13 other people have shot 900 and only one has 14 gold medals, but it is great publicity for the sport.

Actually the anchor's "research" was done late in November/early December prior to the Shark Championship. They do a segment that is called "Coffee With" and did one with Danny Wiseman at Country Club Lanes. The fact that Marty Bass (male anchor, the female was just a fill in for the other morning anchor) actually remembered the information was pretty impressive, or at least went back to the footage from that segment. The field reporter often does his homework since he does several segments like that a day for the Morning Show.

I will agree that Phelps at the Olympics is the biggest Sports Story for Baltimore.

At least a non-bowling anchor tried to learn something about the sport, and was amazed that the oil changed every shot. That is something most non-bowlers would not know.

That's something that some bowlers don't know either, which really makes his retention of the knowledge that much more appreciated.

Most local people are fed up with the way Phelps has acted since he returned.
