Russell Wilson went bowling with Justin Bieber, handily beat him

File under “What the…?!”

Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson went bowling with Justin Bieber after the two attended church together in Seattle on Sunday. City Church lead pastor Judah Smith also went to Bellevue’s Lucky Strike lanes with the unlikely pair. According to the Seattle Seahawks’ official Web site:

“A rep at Lucky Strike told TMZ that Wilson came out on top over Smith and Bieber, walking away with a score of 148 to Smith’s 147 and Bieber’s 100.”

Uh, who got 84?

Mysteries aside, in case it wasn’t already abundantly clear that Wilson is awesome at everything, the Seahawks further analyzed their star quarterback:

“The photo … shows us Wilson’s ability to finish ballgames isn’t limited to the football field. The Seahawks quarterback was the only one to knock down all 10 pins in the final frame, earning an extra turn that he used to secure what would eventually amount to the game-winning points over Smith. The friendly outing offers another reminder that it’s not how you start, but how you finish that matters most.”

Maybe Wilson’s win rubbed Bieber the wrong way because when the pop star tweeted a photo of the outing, he forgot to tag Wilson. He did remember to tag Jesus, however. Aha! Maybe Jesus got the 84!
