I was looking for a reason to use a Marimekko chart in Tableau’s 10.0 release. I’d consider myself a passionate Iowa Football fan and I enjoy using Tableau, especially new product functions. I decided to combine these interests — I hope to make this a regular theme this fall if I can find the time.
In February of this year, ESPN posted this piece paying tribute to Jaromir Jagr’s phenomenal hockey career and other long-lasting sports figures in the ‘big four’ sports*.
