I like the metric "buttload of goals." I think that needs to be the new thing.

And that is precisely what Corsi says. Over the short term, in a very small sample, anything is possible. In a stretch of ten games, the kings could lose all ten even when dominating possession. But, over the course of an entire season, we expect the kings to have a pretty good winning percentage if their possession numbers are high. As the number of coin flips increase, just like as the number of games increases, there is a much higher likelihood of the numbers regressing to the mean.

Today, I fell off the bottom step of the staircase in my house in which I have lived for over 20 years! It is nothing new, I have been falling off that same step consistently for almost the entire time I have lived here.
I am constantly wondering, when descending the stairs, if I will fall off this time. I am no longer surprised to fall but occasionally, I don't fall off, and it seems kind of odd that I didn't fall when in all probability I should fall every time.
a) stop going down these stairs
b) stay downstairs at all times
c) get new stairs
d) stop concerning myself with probabilities and just enjoy falling down
