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.
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?
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!).
THANKS JEREMY. I THINK IT IS A BEAUTIFUL FTL RAINBOW. ROUGE IS OK, BUT FOR SOME REASON TO ME THE BEST COLOR IS VERT.
