‘The Most Amazing Bowling Story Ever’ Named One of the Top Sports Stories of 2012

By Bradford Pearson |

Last week, Mooney pulled in the accolades from Longreads. This week, it’s Longform. The avowed blood-enemy of Longreads, Longform named Mike’s “The Most Amazing Bowling Story Ever” one of its top five sports stories of 2012, alongside stories from Sports Illustrated, Outside, the New Yorker, and some outfit named Bill and Dave’s Cocktail Hour, which will soon be receiving my résumé.

You may remember that Mooney was named to 2011’s list as well, so he’s really just piling it on at this point.

UPDATE: The story also made Quickish’s “12 for 12” list.
