Intern Envy

May 19, 2010

 

My Competition

 

After being severely disappointed in the completely lopsided attention given to WDFN’s other intern, Paige, I challenged Sean and Killer this morning. In response, they said, “let’s leave it to the people to decide.”  They opened a poll at around 8:30AM this morning with the question “Who would you rather hear more about?”  That was followed by a picture of myself and Paige.  See it here.

Knowing that it was impossible to beat an attractive girl in a popularity vote with a heavily male demographic, I told Killer that 10% would be a monumental victory, especially considering my constituents do not wake up earlier than noon.  Here’s the results.  Thanks to everyone who voted, I love you.

Luck be a Piston, Tuesday

May 17, 2010

From Chris Iott at MLive

The good news for the Detroit Pistons: The team with the sixth-best odds to win the NBA draft lottery — a spot the Pistons share with the Philadelphia 76ers — has scored the top pick in two of the past five years.

The bad news: The lottery is random. Past results are not an accurate predictor of future events.

Red Wings deserve ‘credit’

May 17, 2010

Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press wrote a nice piece detailing why the Red Wings deserve credit this year.

For the past five seasons, all 30 teams have had the same limit on how much could be spent on putting together a contender. In that same span, three clubs — that’s 10% of the league — have managed to forge teams that made the playoffs every year.

Detroit is one of those. San Jose and New Jersey are the others. The Wings are the only ones in the group within those five years to have won a Stanley Cup (in 2008) and then return to the finals the following spring. In contrast, this is the first year the Sharks have made it out of the second round. The Devils made it to the second round in ’06 and ’07 and since have exited in the first round every year.
