Wooting Jeremy Lin

Just some random statistics. Woot has been selling these Spalding Jeremy Lin basketballs. I caught the link to one and just went to the usual statistics. It was during a Woot-off so the main page has long expired by the time I looked at it. Instead, here is the thread on the sale.

What caught my attention is this graph:

Breakdown by state


I think this is kind of telling. Granted the sample size is albeit not very large, and the sale started probably at around early morning eastern time, which translates to super early morning central time, but you’d expect Texas to lit up deep woot-green just like Virginia and New York. Well, I guess it was also a cheap item and some people may have been buying it for other reasons.
