Ok, this was brought on by my wife who has never watched more than one or two events of the Olympics before. I watched it most nights so she was forced to. She was really bothered by the fact that the US had so many more Olympians than most countries. She kept saying "Of course we have the most medals, we have the most Olympians". I started thinking and decided to run the numbers of number of Olympians versus medals won. I completely expected some country with one Olympian to win a medal and blow this metric up, but it didn't happen.
- I understand that some Olympians compete in more than one event, I didn't care. This is pure number of Olympians versus medals.
- Those Koreans sure can skate.
- Apparently two silver medals were handed out in some event and no bronze.
- This is my first time using live writer…it may take me a few tries to get the formatting correct.
- Let me know what you think.
Edit: Normalized for Hockey. I Subtracted 22 for mens and 20 for womens and then added 1 for mens and 1 for womans.
So the lot that I park in for all home games always has a group of people in Mesko jerseys. I've wanted to ask them what relation to him they are, but didn't want to be "that" guy. I've also seen a guy that looked like Zoltan with them a few times after the games, but once again didn't want to approach him.
Well today someone went up to him and asked for an autograph and a picture and he said sure, so I decided that I should ask. I told him that he's had a hell of a season, but I also had a few questions:
Do you have a "Space Emperor" shirt?
He laughed and said "no, not yet"
What was your average today? fifty what?
He said "naw, it was only the high forties"
What happened to the rugby punting? You have the speed to make the corner"
"Aww yeah, that new punting rule. We had to change things up"
I thanked him for this autograph and wished him luck in the season and going for the Ray Guy award and then I asked..
Oh..do you know how Tate's arm is?
"He's tough, he'll be fine"
I had to bite my tongue not to say anything about the banner incident, but he seems like a nice guy and down to earth.
