sportsgraph – “who’s winning?” minute-by-minute stanley cup 2011 sparkline

June 13th, 2011 · No Comments

Sports + Graph = SportsGraph! “How many minutes has each team led in the Stanley Cup?” my friend Drew wondered the other night as we were watching the tail end of Game 5. Using the Sparkline feature in Excel 2010, I have looked at the minute-by-minute scores and the results are interesting. Despite the series […]

running broad street for charity

March 16th, 2011 · 1 Comment

I’m running for charity at this year’s Broad Street Run, a ten-mile race in Philadelphia. I’m going to start at the back of the pack, and collect donations for every person I pass. This way, it incentivizes me to run faster, because every person I pass means more goes towards charity. The charities I am supporting […]

couch to 10 miles in five months

April 29th, 2010 · 1 Comment

Long time, no post. Back in November of 2009, I decided that I needed some kind of fitness goal. I was involved in intramurals and used to walk a lot around campus back in college, but since that point my daily exercise now normally consists of video games. I decided that the Broad Street Run […]

my first trip to citifield

August 2nd, 2009 · No Comments

I went to my first ever Mets game at Citifield last night, and it was a good time, especially since the Mets broke a tie in the 8th and beat the Diamondbacks, 6-9. A lot of offense by both teams, including a beauty of a grand slam by Angel Pagan. And, as luck would have […]

This post was originally published on Awesomeopolis.com on July 7, 2009. This site we found combines two things that are awesome: sports and graphs. It’s called Flip Flop Fly Ball and the man behind it, Craig Robinson, hasput together visual representation of various sports statistics. Two of my favorites are below, but be sure to […]

sports new year’s day

February 11th, 2009 · No Comments

My good friend Drew has a modest proposal.  It’s called Sports New Year’s Day. The idea came to me yesterday while trying to think of ways to avoid Valentines Day. Really, who needs a made up holiday? I resolved that instead of sulking around and thinking about being alone and heartbreak and girls on the […]

tmobiti – meadowlands stadium color scheme

November 4th, 2008 · No Comments

I’m introducing yet another serving of awesome on my site called “This May Only Be Interesting To I”, or TMOBITI for short.  Yes, it’s not grammatically correct, but TMOBITI is much better than TMOBITM (“This May Only Be Interesting To Me”).  Maybe I’ll come up with a snazzy logo soon. Now, for your first ever […]

100 seasons of futility

October 26th, 2008 · No Comments

I’m currently watching Game 3 of the World Series of the Phillies vs. the Rays, and they keep touting this stat of “100 season of futility” referring to the fact that in 25 years, the four Philadelphia sports teams (Eagles, Flyers, 76ers, and Phillies) have not won a national championship since the 76ers did it […]

things about bowling that may only be interesting to me

October 14th, 2008 · No Comments

Did you know that there are 5,726,805,883,325,784,576 possible combinations of ten-pin bowling games? More bowling stats here: http://www.balmoralsoftware.com/bowling/bowling.htm Also, did you know that there was such a thing as five-pin bowling?  Neither did I.  It’s apparently popular in Canada.  You have five pins set up in a V-shape (Think “Flying V” from Mighty Ducks).  Different […]
