Storyline

Andy, Goober and Emmett need a fourth for their bowling team temporarily and they reluctantly agree on Howard Sprague. He doesn't have a lot of experience so their expectations aren't too high but at the big match against the blowhards from Mount Pilot, Howard can do no wrong. With only one frame to go, Howard is still on his way to a perfect game. Just then, the power goes out forcing the end of the game to be re-scheduled for the next night. In the interim, Emmet and Goober make a bet with their opponents and now feeling under pressure, Howard has difficulty keeping up. Now worried that they will lose their money, Andy tries to get the other team to call it off. Written by garykmcd
