Soccer Blogger Working Overtime To Shape Data To Fit Narrative

Philadelphia, PA - Blogger David Thornberry stated that he was going to be working overtime in order to shape the data that he acquired on the passing metrics of Michael Bradley to fit his narrative.

"Regardless of whether my supposition is true or not, I need to ensure that the data I collected fits the idea that I had in the first place," stated Thornberry to The Nutmeg News. "I didn't do all this work, write this piece, and collect this data to have my post fall apart because somehow they don't fit together."

Reportedly, Thornberry came up with a hypothesis on the effectiveness of Bradley in the midfield for the United States National Team before he actually had any data to back it up. He then spent weeks writing his column before realizing that the information that he collected likely did not support his thesis. 

"It's important to understand that things don't always go your way, but finding that your collected data doesn't support your hypothesis doesn't mean you should stop," stated Thornberry. "You just need to ensure that you crop, cut, dissect and massage that data until it forms a goop that you can use to plaster that column together. After all, you have a blog to update and factual information isn't going to keep me from posting an article full of hyperbole and assumptions."

The Nutmeg News will have more on this as Thornberry relies on his "Damn The Torpedos" methodology to generate more pieces on analytics in the game.
