One of the biggest challenges for this blog is avoiding the cherry-picking of data. Am I cherry-picking data? Yes. Most of my examples thus far have been anecdotal. The Steelers lost their Pro-Bowl Center for the super bowl and lost. The Raiders lost their Pro-Bowl center for the Super Bowl back in the early 2000s and lost. Its tough to strike a balance between my need to track certain "black swan" events but still avoid cherry-picking, although that is what I'm doing with such low-occurrence events.
