### Who is going to win the World Series?

MONDAY, OCTOBER 28, 2019

Anthropology all the way down:
"Math is hard," Talking Barbie famously said.

According to major anthropologists, so is working with statistics! Consider what happened when a substantial number of human beings recently tried to do that.

As of last Wednesday night, the Washington Nationals had won the first two games of the World Series, and they'd done so as the visiting team!

The Nats had won the two games in Houston! Every sports pundit from here to Sochi got busy repeating a script:

Very few teams who accomplished that feat have ever gone on to lose the World Series! It looked like the Nats were in!

How many teams have ever won the first two games as the visiting team, then proceeded to lose in the end? Every joker had the answer:

It hadn't happened since 1996, when the Braves accomplished the feat, losing to the Yankees. Before that, it had happened in 1985 and 1986. But those were the only three times it had occurred in all of World Series history!

And no, it hadn't happened a single time in the past 23 years!

This information was widely used to suggest that the Nationals had the Series wrapped up. Prodded by despondent future scholars, we decided to check a bit farther. This is what we found:

It's true that, in recent decades, very few teams have ever won the first two games on the road then gone on to lose the Series. But that's mainly because very few teams have ever won the first two games on the road.

The Braves won the first two games as the visiting team in 1996. But only two other teams have won the first two games as the visiting team since then—the Yankees in 1999 (they went on to win the series), and the Nationals this year.

From the year 2000 through 2018, no team ever won the first two games of the World Series as the visiting team! From 1987 through 2018, it only happened twice—the two times we've already mentioned (1996 and 1999).

In short, very few teams lose the World Series after winning the first two game on the road because very few teams ever win the first two games on the road! In fact, of the past four teams to win the first two games on the road (1985, 1986, 1996, 1999), three of those teams went on to lose the Series! Only the Yankees managed to overcome their early success!

In short, the Nats were dead when they won those first two games in Houston! According to disconsolate anthropologists, the embarrassing fact that "statistics is hard" kept us inveterate knuckle-draggers from grasping this obvious fact.

Warning from anthropologists: The language used to discuss this topic will tend to prove confusing to humans. Our species' highly imperfect brains weren't wired for assignments like this.

With that in mind, let's state it again in its simplest form:

The visiting team rarely wins the first two games of the World Series. In the years since 1986, it had only happened twice before the Nats did it this year!

1. What’s next for TDH? A post about how to floss your teeth, or organize your closet?

Sports? Really? Men hitting little balls with wooden clubs? When kids are being caged at the border, Trump remains mentally ill, and Rachel Maddow continues stuffing cash down her pants, Somerby descends into utter triviality?

1. 5:22:
I realize that sports is a Manly Subject, but perhaps you could explain why it is Important and Worthy of Attention, and why stuff appearing in the Style or Entertainment or Here To Help sections of the NYT is trivial, superficial bunk, as Somerby keeps saying.

2. 'why stuff appearing in the Style or Entertainment or Here To Help sections of the NYT is trivial, superficial bunk, as Somerby keeps saying. '

Because Somerby is a Trumptard who just likes to Bash the NYT probably because it's not a fan of Trump or Roy Moore.

4. I had never had a STD before and had never had unprotected sex. However, I had a boyfriend (ex), who at that time had a cold sore. Frankly, we assumed that it was just a spot because we never came to know about herpes until now. We engaged in oral sex, and that’s how I got herpes. Thank God that I found, Dr. Ishiaku (WhatsApp +2348180828544) who gave me a remedy that only took 2 month’s and I'm grateful, hope you will be too.

2. Bob didn't mention the NYT in this post. He said that the dumb reasoning was "widely used." I assume Bob meant that various media had used this dumb reasoning. I wish he had told us just who made this mistake.

1. I am a guy who spends way too much time watching baseball on TV and I heard and read it over and over that it was nigh impossible for Houston to win. Multiple print and TV sources, try the Google. I accepted it as sportsball wisdom. Kind of shocked about the true numbers, and Houston winning three in a row. As to complaints about why post about something as stupid as baseball, I think Somerby is posting this as a cautionary tale, check the numbers.

10. How I Got My Husband back... Am so excited to share my testimony of a spell caster who brought my husband back to me. My husband and I have been married for about 6 years now. We were happily married with two kids, a boy and a girl. 3 months ago, I started to notice some strange behavior from him and a few weeks later I found out that my husband is seeing someone else. He started coming home late from work, he hardly cared about me or the kids anymore, Sometimes he goes out and doesn't even come back home for about 2-3 days. I did all I could to rectify this problem but all to no avail. I became very worried and needed help. As I was browsing through the Internet one day, I came across a website that suggested that Dr.Odu adebayo can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted(WhatsApp) him and told him my problems and he told me what to do and I did it and he did a spell for me. 48 hours later, my husband came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promised never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. My family are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr.odu adebayo If you have any problem contact him and I guarantee you that he will help you. He will not disappoint you. you can WhatsApp him(+2347055287754)or Email him at : poweroflovespell@gmail.com.
