By-The-Numbers is back, and thank God for bye weeks! We've been resting comfortably in our La-Z Boy, just waiting for this week - because researching California is a statistician's wet dream! Numbers galore, digits flying in every direction, and scoreboards breaking in every stadium they go to. How will Washington cope? Can they hang with the Goffmeister?
