it's not picking up too much of the road/home effect. There are a
few other potential biases it could pick up without a lot of care.
In doing this, I should be able to get at the win% by time on the
road. (I think the results are going to be generally fine, but I
knew there were reasons I'd never published this stuff.)
Relating this back to that other topic -- did they play more back-to-
backs in the old days? If so, we may be able to adjust for that...
