A bunch of links

Well, I can see that you guys are all over my guest post contest, or are you? But while you hunt, I was recently made aware of some information that it vitally important to the values upon which SpreeGoogs was founded.

Statistically, those balls are far more common than Coop losing a game of BASEketball

My dear friend and more successful blogger, David Ubben of ESPN’s Big 12 football blog (http://espn.go.com/blog/big12) pointed out to me an a column on Deadspin that is highly relevant to both sports and entertainment in the 90’s. This column takes sports in movies/tv shows and uses advances statistics to measure the impact of individual players in those games. Check out the links below and if you get any ideas for things you’d like to see later on SpreeGoogs, let me know in the comments.

Seriously, these are hilarious. I’d also like to see an analysis of Hang Time and some stat regarding the likelihood that a team hit buzzer-beating game-winners every week for 6 season of television. And was it ever explained how Julie was on the team? I’m all for Title IX and everything, but she was just on the basketball team. What’s that about?
