In my tween years, I saw fit to create an entire imagined baseball league out of Transformers (some official, some made up by me) and play a season’s worth of games, using a baseball board game to determine what happened at each at-bat. Among the many strange pursuits of my youth, this was one of the strangest. I remember going up to my room after dinner and sitting there, rolling dice and carefully recording the results.
I don’t really know. My best guess is that it was both a manifestation of the budding fascination with statistics that was to get me into a sociology Ph.D. program 11 years later and an outlet for the detail-obsession that’s probably taken up way too much of my time in my current job as an editor.
