My best bowling game ever was on January 4th of this year. I got a double turkey in that game. For those of you who don't speak bowling, that means I got six perfect shots in a row. For reference, a perfect game is twelve shots in a row.
I bowled half of a perfect game, but the amazing thing in my mind is the fact that I did this, while sick.
One of my friends said that my game reminded him of Michael Jordan's sick game, in 1997. In that game, Michael Jordan was so sick he couldn't walk off of the basketball court by himself, but he still managed to get 38 points.
Why do people sometimes perform better-than-average while sick? Maybe it's because they're harder to distract. Or maybe it's just dumb luck. You can't spell "fluke" without "flu"!
