“Nobody f*cks with the Jesus.”
Those are the highly quotable words of John Turturro's Jesus Quintana in 1998 stoner/bowling whodunit The Big Lebowski, speaking toward his untouchable prowess on the lanes.
But almost two decades later, we've found him. Ben Ketola can definitely f*ck with the Jesus.
On April 5th, 23-year-old Ketola set what is believed to be a new world record by rolling 12 straight strikes in 86.9 seconds, thereby recording what appears to be the fastest perfect game in history. Ketola — who averages a score of 225 — used all 10 lanes (two of them twice) at 281 Bowl in Cortland, New York, to score his 300 while a coworker recorded the feat on his cellphone.
"It was fun to do. I honestly wasn't expecting to do it," Ketola told Syracuse.com. "I just wanted to see how quickly I could get across the house and get strikes. I saw it as a challenge. Next time I may set up all spares on the lanes and see how fast I can make those."
You said it, man.
