    I’m bitter. As a software guy, I’ve always wanted to create something cool like this for the statistically-obsessed, Neuromancer-connected sports fan. Now these guys have beaten me to it!! Oh, who am I kidding, I’d have never gotten a behemoth like this off the ground on my own… LOL!

    How much more bombardment of in-game stats do we need? I guess I should stay home and not attend any games in-person — otherwise, how could I possibly keep track of our players’ “heat indeces?”
