Tapioca at the Accenture Match Play - Day 2

Day 1 was bloody (1-2), though at least Carl Pettersson closed his match out this morning. We trudge forward. All units are in jelly beans - for entertainment purposes only.

>> Garrigus over Oosthuizen, 100 to win 120

Fearless player, mad bomber, dangerous in this format.

>> Sterne over Mahan, 100 to win 130

Check Sterne's European results, he's healthy and confident again.

>> Poulter over Van Pelt, 135 to win 100

The best match-play golfer in the world at this reasonable price? Yes, please.

>> Round 1 Advancer over Charles Howell, 100-base play

I dare Howell to putt that well for two days in a row. Satisfaction and a letdown might come after the Tiger upset.

>> Hanson over Simpson, 100 to win 125

Enjoy, and good luck,.

I'll take that Sterne-Mahan bet. I just have to go out and buy some jelly beans, just in case.

When you send me those jelly beans, please weed out the black ones. I always hated licorice.

La-La-La-L.A. Gets Lord Stanley!
Just a few things that caught my eye:
  • Alec Martinez's Cup-winning goal celebration? # priceless. I wonder if he'll ever get his gloves back.
  • Henrik Lundqvist stopped the 50th shot of the game. He couldn't stop the 51st. #connsmythe if the Rangers had found a way to come back in this series.
Do Analytics Take the Fun Out of Sports?
Apparently that was the topic of one of the presentations at the Sloan Sports Analytics Conference in Boston last week. The presenter, Yale's Edward Tufte, opined:

Don't let people tell you analytics are reductionist and take the joy out of sports. They mostly just take the stupidity out of sports.

Is he right?

Billy Hamilton went for $28 in the NL LABR auction this past weekend. I discussed this with a fellow writer who participates in Tout Wars with me later this month and we discussed the problem with investing heavily into Hamilton.
