There’s only five days to go now and the beauty of numerical modelling means that rather than having to go outside and risk catching Covid-19 (despite what the stats tell us) , I can lay underneath the warmth and comfort of the spreadsheets (it’s a shame Excel don’t make duvets) and predict what’s going to happen today.
Five days ago, y = 1.8393x + 2.019. This was, as you can appreciate, was a bit of a surprise. A pleasant surprise I grant you, but still a surprise. So, imagine my response the day after when y = 1.9618x + 1.325! This was obviously not a flash in the pan. It’s always an adventure at the free-throw line as they say in basketball circles.
And guess what happened next? Yep, you’ve guessed it: y = 2.23x – 0.2426. You could have blown me down with a feather. Clearly a matter of now having a hot hand. As they say.
Followed by amidst much Shakespearean sturm und drang y = 2.24727x – 1.8235. Nail that trifecta!
And today I’m looking at y = 2.8649x – 4.4386. Say no more. We’re really gonna light up the scoreboard today.
And in case we’ve forgotten: you can find out why I’m taking the 2.6 Basketball Challenge here Any help you can offer is much appreciated!.
y = 3.0526x – 5.7526.
Need I say more?
