“April First. The day upon which we are reminded of what we are on the other three hundred and sixty-four.” – Mark Twain On April Fool’s Day 2021, the Atlanta Braves played a bit of a goof on their fanbase, losing their season opener in extra innings at the Phillies. They laid on for good measure – just to make…...

The Avs take home a win in one of their worst analytical games of the season. Algorithms, functions and data are all great tools but the only thing that matters in the end is the scoreboard. https://youtu.be/pvdukyAe6Lc

Welcome back, hockey! And I don’t mean that weird exhibition game against Minnesota that was like snacking on kettle chips while waiting for Thanksgiving dinner to finally hit the table.

Avalanche hockey is back and earnest and it’s everything I want it to be. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zjeKo0iIQgM
362 minutes. That’s all the Three-Headed Monster played together at five on five this season, less than 11% of the Avs total time. The reason for that obviously boils down to injuries for the most part but heading into the playoffs that should be far less of an issue. While the Avs may not go with that line all the…...
