RAVENNA, Mich. - A Michigan man who bowled his first perfect game immediately collapsed in the bowling alley and died.
Don Doane belonged to the same team at a bowling alley for 45 years.
On Oct. 16 at Ravenna Bowl, he scored a perfect 300.
As he was being congratulated by his teammates, local television reports said Doane collapsed on the floor.
The 62-year-old was taken to a local hospital but could not be saved. A medical examiner later determined that a heart attack killed Doane.
Now I don't want to jump to conclusions, but perhaps, just maybe, Doane might have thought of doing something other than spending the last 45 years in a bowling ally? Although, those 10 Xs will look mighty good on the headstone.
At least his final resting place won't be the "Tomb of the Unknown Bowler."
