FTL standings, visualized



I wrote some Stata code to visualize the current standings of the Fantasy Tennis League.  Rob was so moved by it that I will include his response below.  Rob!  Had I known you’d be so touched, I would have tried to work up something in R or Python.  But I did re-do it so that instead of people having assigned colors, their place is used to put them on the appropriate point of a rainbow.  The Tour de France has its maillot jaune; Fantasy Tennis League can have its rayure rouge.

Rob’s reply:

I am in tears right now.  I just wish Amy was by my side to share this moment with me.

A mere thanks will not do.  A triple haiku is in store for you!

behold what springs forth
in service of FTL
a winter surprise

together we strive
points will ascend in chorus
tonight we are one

ignore pot of gold
brilliant rainbow of data
are you roy g. biv?

  1. Even more brilliant. I love it! I had to look up the Tour de France reference, but now I get it. The FTL leader is always in red on the visualizer. Perhaps I should make a red FTL headband that gets passed around from one FTL leader to the next (but it must be worn at all times!).
