The Higgins Effect

Confession: R and I selected a hockey pool this year full of players based solely on their looks*. The strategy was to pick the hottest players in each of the pre-determined groups. Our draft was done in a couple of iterations, eventually coming down to the groups where we disagreed over certain players. Then we had to produce the most handsomest photo we could find in order to convince the other person. Apparently I am easily swayed by hockey players holding puppies.

So I was excited to see that VF has vindicated me by making a silly top 10 best dressed NHLers list, and it includes 2 of my picks that required some convincing:

*We never actually submitted our team into the hockey pool so we'll never know if looks = points, but I still maintain it was an excellent drafting strategy.
