Hello Everyone, I'm not sure if this is the appropriate place to ask this question or if it is even a legitimate question to be asking, but my friend and I were arguing about it and I was wondering if you could help settle the argument.

The question is:

Is it physically possible to leave only the 1, 7, and 10 pins standing (each corner of the pin triangle)?

Again, sorry if this is a stupid question...and if it is, just disregard it.
with curve of the trajectory and spin of the ball i would think its possible.
yes its possible ive bowled many times and seen wierd stuff.
