Reporters are notoriously loose-lipped with projects that they do, so imagine how wracked I've been having to keep secret my participation in an epic project by FiveThirtyEight, the data-driven offshoot of ESPN run by wunderkind and burrito aficionado Nate Silver. But today, he finally announced his team's search for the best burrito in America--and I'm honored to be one of the people tasked with the serious responsibility of picking the 64 burritos that will duke it out to be crowned America's top burrito. GANGSTA!
Read all the details here in Silver's initial post on the subject. All I can say right now is that there will be OC representation in the California bracket--but lemme check with Nate right now to see how much more I can blab. Watch this infernal blog for more details, and begin the debate!
