Sports geekery is geekery like anything else. SB Nation’s Chart Party answers tricky questions by doing deep dives into a vast amounts of statistics. The show has tackled what if Barry Bonds didn’t have a bat and just how profoundly bad the Cleveland Browns are. This one’s still my favorite. It uses a complex formula to determine how “sad” a punt is, and then runs it on every punt in the modern NFL. This inspired me to do my own absurdly complicated formula to decide what retro games I should put on my handhelds’ limited storage space. I might report on that later, but I should stop punting and finish a blog post already.
