Anyone else reading the new Nate Silver / ESPN website? I admit I haven't had much time to look at it since it's launch, but I'll try and peep it some more as I'm a data nerd.

Was just reading this piece on MLB team popularity.

I guess Silver can hang dong since he went 50/50 on the election, but some of his sports stuff really misses. Like that thing he did about college football team poipularity.

That other ESPN documentary series, Signals, looks at when Jesse Ventura got elected governor. Clocks in at 10 minutes.

Randomly a very enjoyable night of TV watching with 2 friends from Minnesota...just that dawning "holy shit he might actually win this" as the night went on.

If date of birth can't contain or limit jike's memory, why would date of publication matter to him?
