Bowler Rolls Perfect Game, Dies

You can't make this stuff up... talk about going out on top!
RAVENNA, Mich. (WZZM) - Teammates in his bowling league think after rolling a perfect 300 game Don Doane's heart just gave out.

"You get nervous shooting a 300," says teammate Todd Place. "The pressure keeps building," says bowling alley owner Jim Nutt.

Minutes after achieving the life long goal of a perfect game the 62 year old bowler collapsed and died at Ravenna Bowl in Ravenna. "Don just collapsed," says alley owner Nutt. " At first we thought he just fainted." "Then when I rolled him over I realized it wasn't good," says teammate Place.

Truth is definitely stranger than fiction.

This story kind of reminds you of Caddy Shack, and the perfect golf game the one character was having, only to be struck by lightening and electrocuted.

Don went out with a bang at least though, didn't he?
Weird, but it's almost a "feel good" story in a sick twisted way.
