He was in both the literal and metaphorical gutter. (ESPN)

Josh Blanchard wasn't having a very good day on the lanes. The PBA rookie was rolling a 129 in the ninth frame of a World Championship qualifier in Las Vegas. Then, it went from bad to much, much worse.

The most amazing part is that nobody laughs! Not the fans, not the announcers, not the opponents, not the guy himself. To listen to their seriousness, you'd have thought Blanchard had seriously injured himself, not made himself the subject of what will become the greatest bowling blooper clip of all time.

Thanks, Deadspin
