We've made a couple of additions to the blog sidebar. We've added links to our most popular Michigan-related quizzes on Sporcle, including our infamous "Sparty, No!" quiz.
Also, now that Al Borges has the personnel in place to run his desired pro-style offense, we're introducing the "Borges-O-Meter" to measure fan satisfaction on a scale from 1 to 10. Since we're nerds, each level corresponds to an appropriate short story by Jorge Luis Borges.
|10||Tlön, Uqbar, Orbus Tertius||otherworldly|
|9||Funes the Memorious||unforgettable|
|8||The Aleph||capable of anything|
|7||The Garden of Forking Paths||cunning|
|6||The Lottery of Babylon||fortunate|
|5||On Exactitude in Science||precise|
|4||Pierre Menard, Author of the Quixote||predictable|
|3||The Library of Babel||baffling|
|1||The Gospel According to Mark||housefire|
With the return of Taylor Lewan and the successful recruitment of Derrick Green, we're bumping the Borges-O-Meter up to a 6 (The Lottery of Babylon, fortunate). This is up two spots from its post-Outback Bowl rating of 4 (Pierre Menard, Author of the Quixote, predictable).
In deference to Charlie Blockham, the Borges-O-Meter is, and always will be, in Aachen typeface.
Update! Following MGoBlog's suggestion, we have swapped levels 5 and 6. So The Lottery of Babylon is now Level 5 and now the current state of the Borges-O-Meter.
