So we call 9news to see if Belen will slip it in during her weather forecast,or tell the Sports anchors about it.
According to mathematicians, the odds of any adult male bowling a 300 game are 11,500 to one. The odds of a professional PBA bowler rolling a perfect game are 460 to 1.
Upping the ante to two straight perfect games makes the odds that much greater.
Todd Surovell, an associate professor of anthropology at the University of Wyoming, and blogger for the BM Report: The blog of bowling aficionados, said rolling two straight 300s is no easy feat.
“It’s a difficult question to answer,” Surovell emailed. “Let’s say you strike on average 65 percent of your frames. This is an extremely high rate, even for professional bowlers.
“To roll two straight perfect games, you need to bowl 24 strikes in a row. The chance of doing this is approximately 0.00032, or 1 in 30,909. If you strike on average 50 percent of your frames, something I wish I could do, the number goes up to around 1 in 16.8 million.”
