Thanks. My dermatologist told me the exact same thing. I'll check into it in a few hours.
We need three. Yes we do. We need three. How bout you? It's just for four games guys. You're not making a major commitment here. Just trying an experiment to see if it's fun for you guys. If not? I'll chalk it up to another failed idea. But if it's successful, like I've seen before, I'll create a new one for the regular season. Think of it as those vegetables you like that your mom said just try one bite. Don't be like me where someone asks me if I like lobster and I say no, I hate it. Then they ask if I ever tried it and I said I already know. I don't have to try. Just try one four game bite. And that's it.
I was calling scores years ago, I'm in.
Maybe @roscoe36 can move these scoreboards into their own thread.
posting here is unsmooth
I just realized I named this thread 2016-1017 Piston Scoreboard. I don't think the NBA existed before Christopher Columbus. Then again. Maybe that's why he came. To buy a franchise.
reverse time and all
Dang, your prediction last night was dead on. I think this game is rigged!
1. why is there a distance for a game that hasn't been played ? 2. final 103-92 Thee = 8 ok, but Buckeyes 102-88= 5 yet I see 4, Rosc 98-91= 4+1 or 5 distance 3. WTF Buck ?
Thee. 1. The scoreboard is always in real time. Right now your prediction for the next game is 100 to 97. What is the score of the next game right now? It's 0 to 0. You are exactly 139.3 from the current score. The distance formula never makes a mistake Thee. Here's a picture of what that means. Hammer a nail in your drywall on the lower left of the room. Now measure 100 inches to the right. Now measure straight up 97 inches and place a second nail. Take out a tape measure and measure the distance between the two nails. It will be exactly 139.3 inches!!!! The first nail represents (0,0), the current score of the game. The second nail represents your prediction, (100,97). Your prediction is EXACTLY 139.3 inches off right now. EXACTLY where it should be. And as the game of the score constantly changes, the first nail begins its journey across your wall towards the second nail. And when the horn sounds and the game is ended, there will a distance between your prediction (100,97) and the final score. Take out a ruler and you can measure the exact distance. But the scoreboard is even more accurate than your tape measure. The scoreboard is literally measuring it past the billionths place. It's the EXACT distance. Thee, it's why we can hit a bullet with a bullet in shooting down incoming missiles. It's that accurate. 2. #2 is the exact same procedure. Conclusion. The scoreboard never makes a mistake. You aren't being ripped off. Nobody is. If you doubt me, ask Bill Laimbeer if he agrees with what I just said. Anybody that understands the distance formula knows what I am saying is true. You may have to simply trust us on this. I'll share more in another post soon to try to help you understand. I gotta leave for bowling in a few minutes. Sorry about the two holes in your wall.
I wonder if I can post a PDF file in here? I'm a math guru. Definitely no computer geek. It doesn't allow me to cut n paste the distance formula in here.
no mention this a hypotenuse, you still didn't get it right for me. still no mention of 0,0 being a starting axis eventually you did but we're 3+ posts in and the spreadsheet causes the thread to jump around so I need to pg up and pg down needlessly
The rows under BillLaimbeer's row are blacked out for me. I actually typed something in but I can't get the color to change.
more sillyness scores 100 - 97 = 139.3 D scores 88 - 89 = 125 D and closer to zero so 0 - 0 wins before the game is started
Just because you do not understand basic Algebra does not make Algebra silly.
I have you set up now coynejeremy.
As far as the page jumping around for you, if you click on the original link I provided in this thread, you will be on the actual google doc instead of a pistonsforum thread. There won't be any jumping around there.
