So, I was just assigned probably the stupidest task I could have ever been asked to do. And, after thinking about it, I want your help.
As I've mentioned before, I help coach a HS baseball team. We're a small school, no big deal, whatever. Well, we have this guy in our town. I don't know how to describe him other than the "sports guy." He goes to all the games, has a twitter handle that everybody in town follows and he updates scores for all the sports. This guy contacted me last night and wants me to come up with a formula.
This is where it gets stupid. He wants me to have a formula that can predict the score of an individual HS baseball game. Here's his quote, "Straightforward, this team vs that team what formula would you use to predict a winner?"
Clearly BN is full of intelligent people who love them some numbers. I thought that maybe, just maybe, you guys would enjoy trying to come up with a formula.
Note: I'm fully prepared to just tell him it isn't possible. But, I thought maybe we could have some fun with it.
Did I mention that I know this is stupid? lol
