HAL420 is a simulator that Ocelot Sports uses to project the outcome of any given event. It was created many moons ago by a former quant on Wall Street who got bored trolling Zero Hedge and starting flame wars. He decided to work on an innovative program that would project fantasy baseball outcomes. After the gang at Ocelot Sports were introduced to the program, it turned into a rampaging beast like Frankenstein meets WOPR from War Games.
We decided to bestow the rogue program a special name… HAL420… in honor of Stanley Kubrick’s film 2001: A Space Odyssey. Just like HAL9000, our HAL420 is not perfect and has lots of glitches. Sometimes we wonder if it actually controls us.
