weather.com: Ejections and Heat: Rising Together

According to a Wall Street Journal report, the number of ejections in the past 10 years has actually increased with the rising summer temperatures. Using information from Stats LLC, the study concluded that temperatures below 50 degrees yield just 5.8 ejections for every 100 games played in that weather from 2001 to 2011. From there, the average total goes up to 7.2 ejections every 100 games played in temperatures between 50 and 59 degrees, 8.4 in games between 60 and 69 degrees, 8.6 in games between 70 and 79 degrees and exactly 10 in games in the 80s.

For temperatures 90 and above, we see an average of 11.4 ejections for every 100 games, so without fail, higher temperatures mean a higher possibility of a player or coach getting ejected. So, why would the summer months lead to more ejections?

Was the editor of the WSJ so exhausted by taking it up the ass for the wealthy that he decided it was time for a "rain is wet!" study?

Speaking of taking it up the ass, this from the NYT

Across the Irish Sea in Dublin, Enda Kenny [Taoiseach of Ireland] took on the actual pope, making a blazing speech about the Vatican’s unconscionable behavior in the pedophilia scandal.

After 17 years of revolting revelations, Kenny said the latest report on the Cloyne diocese in County Cork exposed “an attempt by the Holy See to frustrate an inquiry in a sovereign, democratic republic as little as three years ago, not three decades ago.”

The report, he said, “excavates the dysfunction, disconnection, elitism, the narcissism that dominate the culture of the Vatican to this day. The rape and torture of children were downplayed or ‘managed’ to uphold, instead, the primacy of the institution, its power, standing and ‘reputation.’

“Far from listening to evidence of humiliation and betrayal with St. Benedict’s ‘ear of the heart,’ the Vatican’s reaction was to parse and analyze it with the gimlet eye of a canon lawyer. This calculated, withering position being the polar opposite of the radicalism, humility and compassion upon which the Roman church was founded.”

Pulling back the curtain to expose the profane amid the sacred would have been remarkable coming from any leader in one of the many countries scarred by pedophile priests, but from the devoutly Catholic prime minister of a nation whose constitution once enshrined the special position of the church, it was breathtaking.


If he didn't have the protection of his title, in how many countries would the Pope have been arrested?

Conversely, perhaps the apparent indifference on the part of legal authorities over the decades only serves as proof of the Holy See's divine providence.
