Man Bowls Perfect Game, Dies Immediately Afterwards
Don Doane of Michigan recently bowled the game of his life. Sadly, just seconds after getting a perfect 300 score, Doane collapsed to the ground and died.
In a scene that would not appear out of place in The Big Lebowski, Doane threw 12 consecutive strikes, the only perfect game of his life. After high-fiving and celebrating with friends, he died of a massive heart attack.
"He looked fine, reached across the table and gave me a high-five and he fell over," says Place.
"I think he died by the time he hit the floor." Don Doane was a member of the "Nutt Farm" bowling team at Ravenna Bowl for 45 years. His teammates says its strange not to see him on league nights.
"It was like a book, a final chapter," says Place. "He threw his 300 game with all of his friends, gave each other high-fives and it's like the story ended. He died with a smile on his face."
