Based on the latest rankings from FLO wrestling, these are my projections for the team standings at the NCAA wrestling championships. I did not calculate bonus points.

1. Penn St. 93.5
2. Iowa. 81.5
3. Minnesota. 79.5
4. Oklahoma St. 70.5
5. Cornell. 54.5
6. Oklahoma. 47

It seems a splendid day to meditate upon some of the theorems of hyperbolic geometry. It’s like spending the day at the art museum.

Happy birthday, Gabriel García Márquez, who is eighty-seven today.

Absence of snark does not mean absence of humor: We guarantee you no fewer than 500 jokes in this book. — Preface, 2014 Baseball Prospectus
Suppose a contradiction were to be found in the axioms of set theory. Do you seriously believe that a bridge would fall down?

My destiny is to eat a char dog with everything today while pursuing the 2014 Baseball Prospectus.

It was the mid 70’s. I managed, barely, to get the #WhiteSox Harry Carey and Jimmy Piersall radio broadcasts in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. They advertised Stroh’s beer. That was my beer du jour back then because of them.

Harry and Jimmy totally rocked.

I remember now. It was yesterday, dark and snowing. I had a coupon for 20% off. I splurged. I bought two Cubs caps.

Come on Cubs, let’s do this. I only have 3,728 days left to live.
