Creating a Digital Monster

Alright, this blog is pretty shot today, plus it got a new digital camera. Given this confluence of events, this blog figured that it could show you some of the insanity that it was talking about waaaay back at its humble beginnings.

Here's an example of this blog's vaunted t-shirt and hat rotation. This particular combo (pictured) will be worn tomorrow. This blog knows it's tomorrow's outfit, because tomorrow this blog is attending the Wisconsin-Louisiana Tech game in Madison, WI. This combo was selected because it was the next Wisconsin outfit in the lineup. This is a rare exception built in to the rotation: Live Sporting Events. If this blog is going to attend a live sporting event, the next relevant item of clothing will be worn.

If this blog were not going to the game tomorrow, it would just pick the next shirt/hat combo in the rotation. The rotation now consists of the 174 short- (or no-) sleeved t-shirts this blog owns, each matched up with one of the 191 hats this blog owns. Also in the rotation are a number of long-sleeved shirts that do not have a specific hat. That's right, when a long-sleeved shirt comes up in the rotation, this blog has carte blanche to choose any hat. Because of this leeway, all hats are worn approximately equally despite the margin between hats and short-sleeved shirts.

That's probably as good of an introduction as this blog can provide without either: a) Boring you with minutia, or b) Scaring everyone away. Realistically this blog probably scared everyone away already, but it likes to think there's a deranged reader or two remaining. So thanks to the 2 readers, and Happy Holidays.

Question: When an outfit is worn for a live sporting event and is part of the rotation, does it go back into the rotation at the same spot it came from, or is it placed at the back of the rotation?

Great question. It's placed at the back of the rotation, as to give the greatest amount of "shirt spacing" possible.

So are there "sub-rotations" for Badger games, Brewers games, etc., or are outfits picked randomly for those?

Well, there are "sub-rotations" for Badger games, etc; but it is still possible for a Badger shirt to get through the order without having been taken early due to a game day (even though they are selected in order). Brewers shirts routinely get through the cycle without a game forcing them into duty. Badgers shirts aren't as easy, but during the summer they usually come around once apiece.
