It’s All in the Numbers

Imagine if all you knew about someones life was the numbers. Just the quantitative data. How would you see it differently? For instance, my net worth is still in the negative and will be until I pay off my student loans. If you just looked at just that, I’m not so valuable. But what about all the other numbers?

I’ve been considering this a lot lately, as I’m playing fantasy football and it’s pretty much all a statistics and numbers game. Where does everyone rank? Well I’ve never rushed any yards, thrown any passes, or really played any sports involving points (cheerleading, anyone?). But it’s still strangely therapeutic to check out the numbers.
