A few days ago, I found myself readingÂ Ranking Baseballâ€™s Best Ballparks. It seemed simple enough. Nate Silver gathered the reviews for the 30 MLB ballparks fromÂ Yelp.com, figured out the average score for each, and ranked them. â€œGee,â€ I said to myself, â€œsomeone should do the same thing for NHL arenas! Wouldnâ€™t that be fun to see?â€ So, I decided to give it a shot myself.
I soon figured out why this might be a bad idea.
