Lots of reasons all of which count as variables:

1. The Invitational and the Open are about as different from one another as (insert your favorite comparison of things not similar).

2. If you list all the variables that comprise the end results of the four meats they (the variables) are pretty good size number, then if you compute the permatations you get a H U G E number which is the x in the probability (1/x) of repeating the same results (the cooked meats, not how the judges judged them) in two separate contests.

3. Throw in the crap shoot nature of judges not all having the same taste buds/experience and were talking about a very small number of the meats and judges results being the same for just one team in two distinct contests.

4. Figure out number 3 for all the teams competing and you'll have a good view of the combined probability of a team winning both... that and a headache and a very tired computer.

Congrats to Tuffy and all the teams of both the Invitational and Open that kicked some Bostons... speaking of Bostons, Tuff's almost lost it for him, he had three strong and one weak category... and still won with a +170.

Did you notice how many teams had +170's... there was some serious cooking going on.
