Occassional thoughts about orienteering
Saturday, November 19, 2005
VeniceI spent some time today looking at maps and day dreaming.
Check out Simone Niggli's routes from last weekend's race in Venice and take a look at this animation of the M55 course.
Orienteering in Venice really looks fun. It is on my list of "things to do before I die." Maybe I'll get over there next year.
I watched the KU game last night and tracked the outcome of each possession for both Kansas and Idaho State. Why? Well, tracking something specific forces you to watch the game closely. You might notice things you wouldn't otherwise (for example, how much more successful this year's team seems to be compared to last year in certain types of possessions).
I also put the results into a spreadsheet that modeled each team's offense. I had KU "play" Idaho State 10,000 times. Kansas won 9502 of those games. posted by Michael | 7:56 PM
