Josh Blanchard is a rookie PBA bowler. If he manages to have a long career in pro bowling, he's unlikely to ever live this moment down, from a World Championship qualifier in Las Vegas today.

While Blanchard looks pretty stupid, it was actually very smart for him to hold onto the ball. "Over the line," "Dude, mark it zero" and such only apply if an actual throw occurs, which means letting go of the ball. (He didn't convert the split anyway.) [ESPN]
