Read Suzanne Davis’ Mind-Bending MasterTweet Theatre Stats

masterTWEET logoLongtime Friend of the Podcast Suzanne Davis (aka the Big Homie SoozieCuzie, aka the self-proclaimed MMA Journalist of the Year 2016) commemorated CME episode 200 by compiling some stats about MasterTweet Theatre. Like, a lot of stats. There’s no point in us going on at length about it, really, except to say it is awesome and Suzanne’s zeal for this project and attention to detail are amazing and humbling. If you’re not following her on Twitter at this point, well, you’re playing yourself.

Take it away, Madam Davis …

Dear My Dear Dudes Mr. Ben Fowlkes and Chad Dundas,

Monday’s recording will mark the 200th episode of the Co-Main Event Podcast. That’s an amazing achievement! I mean, just look at the UFC. Unlike them, your 200th show is actually the 200th show.

Your first show dropped on May 23rd, 2012, your 200th will come out on April 11th, 2016. In the subsequent 1,419 days between, you’ve both had children, you’ve both changed journalistic outlets, you’ve both been published, Chad lost his laptop battery to the abyss, and Ben was ordered to ejaculate 15 to 20 times a week in the following 2 to 6 weeks to “clear out the stockpiles.” (Edit: These last two things are separate events.)

Sincerely, everyone loves your show and I am glad to have been a part of it a few times via listener mail. Now…if only you guys had an easier way to unsubscribe from your goddamn newsletter.

I wanted to put something together for you guys to show my appreciation and to celebrate a pretty damn cool milestone. I wanted to make something that was unique and that no one else would do. (At least, not without doing away with a large piece of their sanity.)

So I did. I made a spreadsheet…

…that documented every MasterTweet Theatre.

It took almost a month, but I went through all of the episodes with a MasterTweet Theatre segment. Then, I searched Twitter, found the exact text, and linked every available Tweet. (There were, of course, several over the past 4 years that have been deleted or could only be found via re-Tweet. In cases where only a re-Tweet was available, I linked the re-Tweet. In cases where no Tweet was available, I manually entered the text.) All of the Tweets you’ll see are copied as written and have links so that anyone can click on the Tweet and go directly to the Twitter page where that Tweet is located.

On top of this, I recorded your guesses and the number of times you guessed a specific Tweeter (e.g. Phil Baroni) and I recorded the number of times that specific Tweeter made an appearance on the show. I then broke this information down further into correct guesses and incorrect guesses, appearance percentage, and ratio.

I documented episode numbers and dates, themes, Chad Dundas’ Sir Nigel Longstock’s “What have you got going on this week…”, and Chad Dundas’ Sir Nigel Longstock’s roles.

The following episodes contained a MasterTweet Theatre segment:

2, 4, 5, 6, 7, 9, 11, 15, 17, 19, 21, 23, 25, 27, 29, 33, 35, 37, 39, 41, 44, 47, 49, 51, 53, 55, 59, 61, 63, 66, 68, 71, 73, 74, 77, 79, 81, 85, 89, 91, 94, 96, 98, 100, 102, 106, 109, 111, 114, 117, 120, 123, 125, 128, 130, 132, 138, 140, 144, 148, 150, 156, 162, 166, 167, 170, 175, 178, 181, 186, 189, 195

Below, you will find just the results of the spreadsheet. You can click

(and you really, really should)

…to go directly to the spreadsheet to read/access the Tweets themselves and to find all of the individual fighter numbers and not just how many times you were right or wrong.

Until next Monday, you’re the only people who have a link to this page. After Co-Main Event 200 is uploaded, I’m going to share it with Twitter. (Unless there’s some reason I shouldn’t.)
Thank you guys for all the laughs and goofiness and for lifting my spirits exactly when I needed them lifted. Here’s to another 200 episodes.
