“Error increases with distance. It’s true with bowling, and it’s true with families.” – Steve Farrar

“Bowling is all physics and energy distribution. It’s F = ma. So it is actually one of the most science-y sports, because it literally is just a ball and a surface and objects to knock down.” – Chris Hardwick

I think for a lot of people, bowling is sort of a joke. But I love it, and it means a lot to me, so any chance to help promote it or celebrate it or not make the hackiest jokes – ‘Bowlers are like plumbers and they wear the craziest shirts!’ – I’m way into. – Chris Hardwick

“Bowling would be more interesting if it were slightly uphill.” – Demetri Martin
