Wonder Year

2013, by the Numbers

Before we swan-dive headlong into 2014, let’s take a moment to remember how we got here. There were proud moments. Not-so-proud moments. Moments that were so bizarre they can only be understood quantitatively.

Oh, you’ll see...

Consecutive games the Braves won during the infamous Waffle House Streak: 14
Chance that streak’s inevitable end contributed to their decision to jump ship to OTP: 23%
Years the 400 tollbooths existed until being removed last month: 20
How much you miss them on a scale of 1 to 10: –12
Times Mumford & Sons were asked to put their cameras away before getting forcibly removed from the Clermont Lounge: many
Probability one of them was wearing suspenders: 100:1
Giant pandas born at Zoo Atlanta (making them the first twins to be born in the US since 1987): going with 2
Pretty-damn-cute factor of giant panda twins: going with like a million
Interview requests an Atlanta woman got after revealing she was the voice of Siri: 400+
Reese Witherspoon arrests on Peachtree Road: 1
Baton Bob arrests on Peachtree Street: also 1
Who wore it better: Baton Bob

It’s... kind of his job.
