    Burrito Bracket

    A rather amusing approach to the one-person survey of places that serve the same thing; in this case, burritos.

    Maybe we should have adopted a similar approach for the Beefthons. :roll:

    For what it's worth, the Burrito Bracket is authored by Nate Silver, who is a great baseball writer and (I believe) co-founder of the excellent baseball analysis site Baseball Prospectus.

    The site itself actually is more like a taqueria bracket, as Nate is comparing like to like at different joints, some of which don't have burritos. So there are some al pastor taco face-offs and other types of face offs amidst the burrito challenges.

    I don't think that Nate was a co-founder of BP, but he's the author of their PECOTA player projection system and an excellent statistician. I love his approach to this "problem." But I'm a little concerned that he has Chipotle at a #7 seed. :shock:

    I agree with the Chipotle thing. Also, good point on the Nate Silver background. I don't know why, but I get the backstory of Silver and Clay Davenport (who I believe was in the initial group of BP contributors brought in by Gary Huckaby) confused. At least Nate didn't name his statistical breakthrough after himself. :wink:

    Okay, enough baseball geek talk.

    Although this is a late response, I just recently found this site (which is awesome, btw.) I believe he did the rankings by their yelp score, although he did change at least one matchup for the sake of making things interesting.
