HDMI vs Football
« on: August 15, 2014, 09:40:48 AM »
I had planned to spend the weekend researching HDMI cables, trying to clear up questions remaining in my mind, but Google comes up with over 7 million hits. A little much for one session so I checked the TV schedule to see how I might break up the study session.  :huh:

Apparently we're coming up on the "football season" and since I don't know anything about football I turned to Google again for some answers. I found this explanation which seems to sum up the game and it only takes 5 or 6 minutes to understand it.
I don't mean to interrupt your research time but if you need a break this video may answer any questions you have about football.

I remember that bit from years ago - It's funny as hell.

Too bad it's not available on my tablet. I'll have to check it out once I'm off the rack in a couple hours.

With the multitude of channels today even stuff like Girls Highschool Lacrosse is televised.  Moms want to watch their kids play.  Eventually content starvation due to virtually unlimited bandwidth will create a demand, even for unpopular sports.

But I grant that "football" is the right name for sports where a ball is played with the feet.  It's just in the U S of A the N F of L has too much clout to let them not call it Soccer on TV here.  :)

But as Yogi Bera noted, if people are determined not to come to games you can't stop 'em.  :)
