In preparation for the 2014 Sochi Olympics, we have made all of our historical Men's Olympic Hockey statistics available on Hockey Reference.

Or maybe you remember fondly the 1992 Unified Team that won the gold in its only Olympics:
You can get started by looking at the athletes, the teams, the years, or even the individual games. With the 2014 Winter Olympics rapidly approaching, we are happy to be able to provide you with this data, and welcome any feedback or suggestions to improve it.

We've added win probability graphs to every Super Bowl, from I to XLVII, from exciting to not-so-exciting. For years prior to 1999, play times were extrapolated from drive start and end times listed in the NFL Gamebooks for those games. For example, if we know this 8-play Rams drive in Super Bowl XIV started at 7:25 and ended at 3:20 with a touchdown, we estimate that each play took roughly 35 seconds off the clock. These are imperfect estimates (obviously the clock will stop on an incomplete pass or an injury and certain plays take longer to run than others), but they are close enough to allow us to calculate a pretty close approximation of the win probability for that given moment.
