That one was okay though? Aside from people discussing answers before the reveal.

I don't even know what questions you'd ask in e/n christ.

It was well run and the questions were fine. It's that the answers were aggressively boring. I think it's cool that many people were trying to "win", but there were a lot of people who insisted on being "right" in a rather staid way that made riding along with the reveals a relative non-event.

I guess what I'm saying is if there's a Seth McClung of video games we haven't found it yet.

I completely forgot about the reveal last night, but I still enjoyed reading through the answers just now. As usual the game was fun and some of the answers were hilarious.

I don't watch ESPN so I don't even know who the media loves, probably some dumb baseball guy who's like super rear end in a top hat but white so he gets a pass. Google says Mike Trout is white, I believe he's an rear end in a top hat. - KettleWL

Hey gently caress you man.

Also Chad Curtis was worth getting an Ace for, even if only chuckling to myself.

I found the questions kinda bland, and it did feel like people were trying too hard, if that's a thing. You need a mix of people trying along with people trying to go to hell to have a good sheep game and I felt the Games one was lacking.

I was joking about the E/N sheep game unless you want it to be nothing but self-deprecating questions and everyone racing for the bottom. If someone actually wants to try more power to you.

Was doing great until I answered the last question with my heart (gently caress the Cardinals) instead of my head. Also thought more people would be on board with the Royals World Series story.

Still that was a lot of fun and I look forward to the next one.

A mustachioed man named Nabe Gewell.

That and pitch framing are my favorite joke answers, I'm glad one made an appearance.

And a shout out to my God Shammgod peeps. Reading up to the reveal with IcePhoenix and No Safe Word talking about how they loved their answer and then I'm the third wheel to the party (but it's cool and I'll buy drinks) that felt good.

Goddamn, I started remarkably lovely in the first 4-5 questions and ended up at #6. Amazing. Thanks for running this! I know they're a lot of work and I appreciate it. I wish I could have been around for the reveal but I've been diving across the country for a new job.

Can you do something like this for the SAS sheep game that ran last week?

https://www.bradybutterfield.com/2015_SASsg

So in a world where all NFL posters were sharing answers and all soccer posters were sharing different answers and all baseball posters etc... this would show that clustering, though clustering is almost always more compelling in theory or with toy cases than in practice.

-Size of circle = how well the poster did
-Posters sharing responses are linked, shorter links = more shared responses*
-Color corresponds to a unidimensional scaling of the response concordance matrix (basically, slightly different way of looking at the same question, though with just one dimension you dump most of the info.). It's a borderline arbitrary way to put some color in there but generally similar colors = similar responses. I chose the most beautiful colors in creation to create the most pleasing graph, you're welcome.

*These were pruned so each poster lost their longer links (unless it linked to a poster for whom it was one of their shorter links).

I only know a few NFL posters and a few soccer posters and I don't really see any pattern based on them so all I can say is that you are more like the other brown-purple people in your 14 sheep game responses than you are like the yellow people. And/or maybe you have Kaposi Sarcoma.
