Sports, Music, and Math…Say What?
A lot of us here at SeatGeek are math geeks (myself included). We share a unique passion for sports, music, and math. As strange as that may seem, we have found our groove analyzing ticket data for sports and concerts. We have been crunching a lot of numbers recently in an effort to present some interesting stats to our readers, but not all of it shows up here on the main Blog. If you like sports data make sure you are also subscribed to our Sports Blog, as some of our best posts are coming through that channel. Here are a few of my recent favorites:
- Strasburg’s First Start and Average Ticket Listing Prices – a story which has been picked up by many major sources such as the Wall Street Journal
- The Stats Don’t Lie: Interleague Play Still Popular - a post in response to a recent radio discussion by Rob Neyer
- No-Hitters and Average Ticket Prices – this was posted in this blog, but cool enough to call-out again
- 5 Interesting Graphs for Baseball Fans – a report that is part of our ongoing TicketBeat series
- Backstreet Boys vs Justin Bieber: Average Ticket Listing Prices – Bieber might own Twitter, but Backstreet remains surprisingly close on average ticket prices
As much as we love math, we aren’t all business here. Much like Jack Bauer seems to go rogue every third season of 24, Justin – a member of our social media team – goes rogue with a rant more than we would like. Connect with him on the Sports Blog and Bleacher Report.
