US Puzzle championship

Every year, I plug the US Puzzle Championship.  It's occurring this Saturday, 1PM ET.  It's a fun activity if you enjoy puzzles, especially the kind that appears on Nikoli, or A Cleverly-Titled Logic Puzzle Blog.

I'm excited because, according to a linear regression of my previous rankings, this year my expected ranking is 6.  I will finally complete one of my life goals: to rank under 25.  But that's not as exciting as 2013, when I will rank at -9, better than the best.  Yessssss

What's the r^2?

You probably want an exponential regression.
