I Did It! Uh-oh!

Don Doane has been bowling at Ravenna Bowl as part of the same bowling team for almost 45 years and on October 16, for the first time ever, he rolled a perfect game.

I Think We All Know That Feeling

Clive Seymour, a 74 year old grandfather of 6, was aiming for the 10th hole at Hele Park Golf Club, in Devon, England, when he scored a hole in one. The only problem? His ball went into the 4th hole.

“It’s a great feeling, even if it was in the wrong hole.” Seymour said.

You bet it is.
