Bowling Gets a Strike

I'm sure everyone is relieved to see the results of the bowling ball study conducted by the "Bowling Ball Specifications Task Force." Apparently it was formed after a flood of perfect 300 games compelled the United States Bowling Congress to impose restrictions on ball manufacturers which were scientifically unfounded.

The results: it's the roughness of a bowling ball that has the most impact on whether a ball is more likely to get a strike.

Isn't that akin the the idea in baseball that a roughed up ball can cause an advantage? I'm glad that bowlers can sleep a little better now that they know to get some sand paper ready.
