A bad day of bowling is better than a good day of falling flat on your face on national television. Unfortunately, PBA pro Josh Blanchard was forced to experience both at the same time.

During the ninth frame of a World Championship qualifier event in Las Vegas the ball refused to leave Blanchard’s hand, causing him to lose his balance and fall right into the gutter. Blanchard was already sporting an amateur-like 129 when the mishap occurred.

Check out Blanchard’s awkward flop. Bet after that he just wanted to split. BOWLING HUMOR! We’ve been saving that one up for months.
