Hi. All my current writing is over at Audacious Fox, and I'd love to show you around. Thanks for reading.

Lionel Messi's Improbability

If you love football, statistics, and graphs, do I have something for you. Benjamin Morris, writing for FiveThirtyEight, analyzes the astonishing career, and numbers, of Lionel Messi:

In other words, if Barca-Messi and Argentina-Messi were two different people, even based solely on the stats recorded since 2010, there’s a good chance they’d be the two best players in the world.

Not enough? Proof, proof, and more (albeit annoying music) proof.

Extra credit: I love whenever Messi’s playing and Ray Hudson is commentating.
