3D football and giant football screens and football!

I don’t care much for football. However, when I’ve gone to games in person I’ve had a good time. Wait, I just realized that’s a huge lie. My dad used to take me to see the Bears when I was a kid but there was nothing fun about sitting outside when it was 10 degrees and the wind was whipping of the lake so fast the snot INSIDE your nose would freeze. Maybe this is why I hate football. Maybe this is why I have Daddy issues.

So me complaining about something that has to do with football is like a deaf person yelling “TURN THAT MUSIC DOWN!” Nonetheless, when I heard that an upcoming Dallas Cowboys game was going to be partially presented in 3D I thought that might be cool. That is until I learned it wasn’t going to be broadcast in 3D over my TV, but instead it would be shown in 3D on the ridiculously large/ugly/unnecessary HD screen that hangs in the equally ugly Cowboys Stadium. Huh? Aren’t those people already witnessing the game in 3D? Do the Cowboys play in a different dimension?

Are you as bored by this post as I am?

I guess I just don’t understand the purpose of going to a game, only to watch that same game on the giant TV hanging over the actual game you are actually sitting at in your actual jean shorts. I especially don’t understand the need to see it in 3D if your George Bush-lovin ass is already there in person!

Why am I so smart?

    Jumbo trons should be used for 3 things,

    1. To spell out the team name for me durring cheers, in case I forgot how to spell Eagles. (when you drink a bottle of tequila in the parking lot instead of paying $7 for a miller lite this can happen)

    2. To Show hilarius bloopers and even more hilarius injuries durring time outs

    3. To pick out hidiously dressed fans and hot chicks in the stands untill they realize they are on the jumbo tron and begin to wave AT the jumbo tron and not the camera filming them

    Football can suck it – on a screen or not…

    I’ve only lived in SF for about 3 years – didn’t even know the name of the team until a few months ago… prior to that, I was in New England… which I understand has a few teams? Not really sure – I think football is the ‘sport of idiots’.

    I’ve watched about three minutes of football this season, just can’t get into it.

    I don’t understand how the stadium-sized stadium screen works. Do people wear 3-D glasses and stare at the jumbo-screen instead of the field? How is the game instantly converted into 3-D? Has technology progressed since Vincent Price in The Wax Museum? It was fine as it was.

    Paul – Yep, you sit there and watch a 3D version of the game that is in real 3 dimensions right in front of your face. I can’t believe football found a way for me to hate it more.
