“Yeah, in Six Games”
The above formula details the likely success of a penalty kick. I hate to admit this, but this sort of thing probably would have really helped me in math.
More than that though, the penalty formula is, strangely, one of the reasons I can appreciate sports even more now though. With the vast success of Moneyball and some of the other more mathematical takes on sports, there’s a trend towards a more intellectual way of playing the games we’ve known and loved for years.
I’m confident that Frank Lampard is not the most athletic midfielder in the game, and actually probably is no where close. He does, however, possess a 150+ IQ, and it’s mostly because of this that he’s the best in the game.
