Illustration for article titled Senior Citizen Rolls 40 Perfectos in Wii Bowling

Are you a Wii bowler? You think you're good at it? If so, 86-year-old Jack Davis of Vandalia, Ohio, would like to speak to your ass. Because he's going to kick it.


Davis claims some 40 perfect 300 scores in Wii Bowling, which he's played more than 4,300 times since he moved into the assisted-living home where he plays in August 2007. "What I like about it (Wii bowling) is, if you find a spot you can stay on all the time, you can get a pretty good score," Davis said. "And, you get 300 once in a while."

Now, 40 perfect games is not out of the realm of possibility for anyone, once you find that groove. Maybe the biggest challenge is staying committed enough to the game to log that total. Playing 4,300 games of anything is hardcore by any definition, however, much less an 86-year-old guy. My grandfather is the same age, and when I stayed with him this summer, I couldn't get him to try it even once.
