After 9 months of break, I didn’t actually get into the working-shape and 8 hours-schedule because I realized that a long weekend will come…due to a public holiday.

I think most of us have seen the movie Moneyball (if not, you should, it’s a great movie), where Brad Pitt decides to rely on the power of data analysis to build a baseball team by hiring the most promising players who aren’t “mainstream”.

Analytics in sport is not something new, and anybody who has been watching a game lately saw that we now just have stats about pretty much everything…

When did I start to like cheese?

I remember as a kid that I hated cheese. Now I absolutely love it! I can now have all kinds of cheese that as a kid I would make funny faces  due to the smell!  Blue cheese, smelly, even those that you need a spoon to scoop it out because its almost liquid.  Hmmm…

Ok I’m back.  Where was I?  Oh yes.  Somewhere between the age of 16 and 25 I lost the fear and the…
