I didn't believe it when I posted above on 9/8, and I still don't.

I say let the kid have it. I agree with Angel that because of some of these "pre-bowled" honor scores that a rule has been instituted to not recognize an honor score from pre-bowling, but that's what usually happens; someone abuses the system so the system goes on lockdown.

Someone else mentioned it as well - the kid will have a burden on him for the rest of his life. Jeremy Sonnenfeld still has his own burden to bear and I haven't heard a lot about him since 2000.

And to the person (cool rockin daddy) who mentioned about his 26 strikes in a row; nobody said it wasn't possible. I knew a woman from my old hometown who shot her first 800 with two 300's. She shot 212-300-300. Sometimes everything comes together, but the problem with this kid's accomplishment was a) hardly anyone around to see them in the center his father owns/runs and b) the close proximity of the accomplishments.

I, too, question the validity of the scores. I'm not saying it's impossible, because it's been proven not to be impossible. I'm just saying the probability of it is very low, especially since he was on his own shot without other bowler traffic. That's just my humble opinion, though.

I just wonder if all his honor scores are just at his dad's center? If he doesnt have any other honor scores out side that center?

How old is this kid? Daddy... you have got to be kidding me...

It is also interesting how there are pins penciled in and numbers written in the 1st game (frames 3,8,10), 2nd game (first frame), and third game (frames 4,8). This just makes me not believe it even more.

Scott, I had never seen this. I assumed the scores were automatically recorded on a machine, not penciled in. For sure, I don't believe this. This is now totally suspect as to why anyone would accept this score sheet with all of the obvoius changes.

If he was perbowling, and turned in this score sheet, there is NO WAY that I as an opponent would even let this be accepted.

Dennis,

This "official" score sheet is a VERY tongue-in-cheek JOKE!

Not the real score sheet at all!

Yes, it is a tongue in cheek joke that basically sums up how I feel about it because he pre-bowled with no one except his father present. I am not sure who came up with the joke but I thought it was very funny because to me it is obvious there was funny business going on.
