Since we are on the subject of ESPN’s “It’s not crazy. It’s sports” advertising campaign, I have to highlight the cream of the crop which plays more like a documentary than a commercial. The great disappointment of this ad and the real life events that inspired it is that real life (and copyright law) interjected itself into the delightful story of an internet meme’s attempt to turn the self-righteousness of the Southern football “tradition” on its head. Wouldn’t it have been great if those prim and proper dance squad ladies that think it is appropriate to celebrate a legacy of slavery with the nickname of their past it's prime ball team had to now wear a shirt with a prune-faced alien to their Saturday tailgate party. Ahhh…what could have been.
The updates keep coming. Not much new to report at this point. I am beginning to pile up some sizable N's for what my normal rate of success is. Before I can really appreciated whether any potential strategies that I mentioned in that first Solitaire post has an impact on success, I have to understand what success looks like. Right now we are settling in on a number of approximately 1 win for every 6 hands of cards. Although the almost 200 hands played seems like a lot, there still seems to be some real movement in the numbers. I think to get a true stable baseline, I need to go a total of 1000 hands. So that is my goal right now. 1000 hands of solitaire with the standard straight ahead strategy. Then we will see where we are and go from there.
