Bowling a Perfect Game

You're on the verge of bowling a perfect game (getting a strike in every frame). It all comes down to your final throw, which needs to be a strike to pull off the feat. There is a bit of an issue though--you are very superstitious and believe that you need to replicate everything you did before each ball was thrown. The problem is you've added so many things over the course of the previous 11 throws, that it's tough to keep track. Write the epic conclusion to your final throw and what happens.
