Paper outcome

About an hour ago I received the following email from the conference organizers:

Thank you for submitting your abstract to the 2010 MIT Sloan Sports Conference. Unfortunately we received an overwhelming response and, though your paper was excellent, are unable to invite you to the conference at this time. We anticipate that this will be an annual event and we welcome work from you in the future.

Thanks again for your interest we would love to see you there in March.


Needless to say, I'm very disappointed and a little discouraged.  I'm not as motivated to attend the conference as I was a week or two ago, but I might be by the end of the week.  There would be some good networking opportunities. 

As for the Pythagorean paper, I'll post it on this site in a couple of days. There were a few revisions that I needed to do to correct the total probability exceeding 1.0, and when I finish those, I'll post them as well.
