I have no doubt in my mind that there are staticians conjuring up stats for the announcers to talk about. My question is, do they have specific staticians that they work with? Like a good producer or something like that. Like do they announcers just use the local stadiums guy, or do they bring in there man that they know can kick out the craziest stats?

Comment What about adjusting traffic light timing? (Score 1) 1114

I hit about 6 lights on the way to and from work each day and about two out of the 6 are timed right to cruise right through. I keep wondering why they don't have them timed better to avoid starts and stops and increase gas mileage. Sure, someone's going to suffer, but let it be the cross road traffic and not the main thru ways.
