Moneybutt: Quantitative Ass Rating

Okay, this is I believe simultaneously the most brilliant and most moronic thing I have ever accomplished.  

Moneyball is all about quantifying the unquantified, right?  

So what is the biggest remaining question in baseball?  Right, how to rate people's butts. I have written a little program that allows people to rank the attractiveness of players in head-to-head competition. The results are tabulated and each player gets a power rating depending on the quality of the competition they beat. If enough people rate the players, we'll know who the true hottest player is.

I'd like your help collecting data.  Please go to The Ass Smackdown Site and vote on a few showdowns. Vote as much as you like.  The results are updated instantly.  

Also, if you believe (1) there should be a better small picture for a contestant, or if (2) someone new should be thrown into the mix, then provide the URL to a picture that you prefer in the comments thread. I'll add them to the pool when I get around to it...

Don't get mad at me if my program messes up and loses your votes. There might still be some bugs to shake out.

Update [2005-10-7 22:10:8 by Apricot]: Thanks for the HUGE response. I'm going to take the contest down at midnight (Friday night), so get your last votes in tonight. If you have ideas for a future Smackdown, leave them in the comment thread.

Update [2005-10-8 1:22:55 by Apricot]: Thanks again. I closed the vote, and have now put up a FINALS RUNOFF between the Top 10. Please check out that vote at http://www.athleticsnation.com/story/2005/10/8/12116/6781
