Do you remember this Bob and Ray routine touching on innumeracy?

Can you help me locate an old Bob and Ray
routine that briefly lampooned pointless statistical calculations?

If my memory is correct, the routine was something like this. It was a dialogue about a nine-member baseball team on their team bus, driving to the next town.
BOB: They've got to travel 90 miles for their next game, Ray.
RAY: That's 10 miles per player, Bob.
Can you help me find this routine? Or can you provide a similar example of pointless and irrelevant calculations (for a brief piece on statistical illiteracy I'm writing)?
