If you're a 10-pin bowler, rolling a perfect game may be something you dream about.
A Baltimore County man made history by rolling not one, but three perfect games in a row.
At the Brunswick Perry Hall lanes, bowlers are buzzing. Rich Jerome Jr. made bowling history during his Monday night league by rolling three consecutive perfect games.
"It's still really unbelievable. The phone started ringing right after it happened and it hasn't stopped It's a big accomplishment. It will probably never happen again," he said.
His family is beaming with pride. "I'm very proud of him. I knew he could do it," said Felicia Jerome, Rich's wife.
"It doesn't get better. It's the Super Bowl of bowling. It's the greatest thing a bowler can do," said Rich Jerome Sr.
Late in the third game, all eyes were on Rich as the lanes fell silent.
"I started realizing I might have a shot at it in the seventh frame of the last game," said Jerome, now in his 11th year on the lanes. "It seemed from then on that people started standing around my lanes but I tried to watch the pins. I also tried to watching the football game on TV to take my mind off it.
"Everyone stopped. Everyone in the bowling center was back here," said Rich Jerome Jr. "Once the last ball got off my hand, I knew it was good. It struck and the place erupted. It's an indescribable feeling. It was awesome."
"After I finished, I looked around and it seemed like everyone there was on the settee area with me. It was very exciting."
Rich Jerome Jr. has been bowling for 11 years. He bowls five nights a week.
Jerome had 10 previous 300 games and five earlier 800 series. Two of his perfect games came as part of his previous career-high 857 series Nov. 3 in the Drug Trade League, also at Perry Hall. The Drug Trade is USBC's oldest certified league dating back to the 1896-97 season.
He's the first person in Maryland history to bowl three consecutive perfect games in league competition. Only 13 other bowlers have done it around the country.
