MKM Open Thread (Feb 6 2012)

Welcome to your MKM Blog Open Thread for February 6, 2012, the one day of the year where it is legitimate for hard news shows to make their lead story a replay of yesterday's television commercials, as opposed to the other 364 days of the year, where they instead do it to further the cynical incestuous relationship between corrupt so-called journalists and the unscrupulous multinational corporations who - directly and indirectly - sponsor the mainstream news media in order to protect their own reputations and consolidate their control over the world.  You all need to go to www.ronpaul.com.  


Hey, everyone.  Hope you had a great weekend enjoying an all-time classic Super Bowl, and then learning that all your enjoyment of that Super Bowl could be reduced to a handy ex post facto statistical calculation.

Have I mentioned that, while I believe in sabermetrics, I hate them?  It's like when you see those science magazines that use complex photo analysis to explain that a model is hot because she has perfect symmetry between her shoulders and knees or something.  Dude, why can't she just be hot?  Why can't Vince Coleman just be a good leadoff hitter because dude is fast?  Why can't Mark McGwire have just hit all those home runs because he drank lots of milk and Jesus liked him?  Stop taking the joy out of my life, numbers.

Anyway, let's see what you all have to say today, and here is a Youtube clip to get you started.
