Go Team GO!!!
Ahh football. Whether you follow the NFL, college or the Central Region, the beginning of the football season brings the promise of cooler weather, the start of a new school year and the hope of a winning a championship!
While you are enjoying the thrill of competition ponder these:
- Is there such a thing as momentum?
- What about home field advantage?
- Why don’t coaches “go for it” on 4th downs?
Economist Tobias J. Moskowitz and Sports Illustrated writer L. Jon Wertheim give you the answers in Scorecasting: the hidden influences behind how sports are played and games are won. You may never look at sports again in the same way.
But getting back to teams: what team do you follow? Tell us in the comments!
