First of all, let's just put it out there that we have absolutely no idea about ten-pin bowling.
Honestly, not a Scooby Doo.
But even as someone who has never followed the sport, all you can do in this case is sit back and applaud Anthony Neuer's latest feat.
Neuer, conveniently nicknamed "The Ginger Assassin", has become an overnight sensation after successfully clearing a 7-10 split during the Professional Bowling Association's U.S. Open in Reno, Nevada.
Not only is the shot itself extremely tricky, but what makes it all the more impressive is the fact that it was done on live TV.
Under the bright lights and with ten-pin bowling die-hards watching from home, Neuer produced the goods when it mattered most.
And in doing so, he became the first person in three decades to pull off the near-impossible shot on live television.
Oh, and it turns out he's only 18 years of age.
I mean, you can't write this sort of stuff.

The historic moment unfolded during Neuer's nail-biting semi-final clash against Jakob Butturff.
And when the moment of magic played out on our screens, US Open commentator Rob Stone couldn't contain his sheer excitement.
"He did it! He got the 7-10, Randy! He did it! Wooooohoooooohooooo!" Stone shouted as the crowd erupted.
"My goodness, the Ginger Assassin just dropped the 7-10! You bet, kid, you bet!
"Oh man, give me some oxygen and water.
"I believe the Ginger Assassin can drop the 7-10... insane."
Neuer ended up losing the match, but there's absolutely no need to delve into that.
No need at all.
