Hakim Emmanuel is a bowling god!
The perfect game in bowling.
Usually it’s a pipe dream for the amateur bowler, but not for Hakim Emmanuel of Stoughton, Mass.
Emmanuel rolled not one, not two, but three consecutive perfect games — a 900 series — last Thursday night.
According to the Boston Globe, that accomplishment had happened only 26 times previously in sanctioned league play.
Prior to Thursday’s string of 36 strikes in a row, Emmanuel’s top individual game was a 290 and he had never eclipsed 800 in a series.
“This is a dream come true,” Emmanuel said. “I just can’t believe what I just did. I’ve talked to a lot of people in the industry. One guy had an 899, and I didn’t want to be that guy.”
You’re not that guy, Hakim.
In case you’re wondering, Emmanuel does have aspirations going pro. Hey, why not?
