I feel like I should have a headline. Like...

Canucks Fever Grips the City Once More



The thing about working in an office with a bunch of guys is that most of them are hockey fans. Consequently, hockey is the choice topic of discussion at the moment, along with the office hockey pool and a whole lot of posturing and betting and ragging on each other about whose team is going to win.

Since these folks are programmer/number geeks, and stats analysis is a part of what they do as well, they've been discussing the crap out of it all day. Predictive algorithms and number systems and whatnot. It's fun lo listen to, but it's over my head.

So, the Big Boss just came out of his office to talk about his picks and how great they are, and he tells Ms Em she should do it too, because it doesn't matter if she follows hockey, its all about the statistical analysis. So Ms Em comes back with a story of how she had a friend join one of these pools once, and she just picked people at random - and ended up winning big time. And the boss? He says, "Hey, that's pretty much how I got through university."

*snicker*

I totally work with an office full of smart-asses and goofballs.

OMG! GEEKS! THEY ARE SO AWESOME!
