... Ok, maybe "horrific" is too harsh a word, but as someone that bowls A LOT this is something that would make me cry.
A guy named Troy Walker was bowling in a tournament in Houston over the weekend and was one strike away from a perfect game.
Then on his final roll . . . which looked pretty good . . . the arm from the machine that racks the pins dropped down and BLOCKED THE BALL. He did get a do-over, but left three pins standing for a final score of 297.
