Thanks for the WSJ piece. That was really good/horrible. I was impressed they didn't write it blow-by-blow, and just told the whole story.

Daniel, I think there is a lot a lot going on in the structure of that WSJ story. The flirtations with bigger meaning, the historical notes, the toggling between events, the varied scopes, the way the writer buried the fact that he had this intriguing spreadsheet point system. Really enthralling.
