Notes from the Underground 11/05/21
The Underground would like to note New Zealand’s win over India in the T20 World Cup (cricket). The Underground has absolutely no idea how to play cricket, but if New Zealand is good at it, then it must be worthwhile. The fewer problems there are with government, the more people can focus on sports. To quote American baseball player Sean Doolittle, “Sports are like the reward of a functioning democracy.”
Tea was spit out when The Underground found out the University of Pittsburgh football team had a QB named Kenny Pickett and a kicker named Chris Blewitt. The Underground found this out after the above-named kicker went viral for having 3 of his first 5 kicks in the NFL blocked.
The Underground did some math — that core curriculum is finally paying off — and found the probability of that happening, given a 1% chance of any random kick being blocked, is .000005%, or 1 in 20 million. Of his NFL career, it’s safe to say Chris blew it.
