      I’m a big fan of the guitaring of Neal Schon.(Santana, Journey, Soul Sirkus and others.) One of my favorite albums of his is his 2001 release Voice which consists of instrumental covers of popular songs. Here he breathes new life into a Celine Dion song.(!!) Breathtaking.

    I saw a bit of The Chase and one of the questions was ‘How many minutes of action are there on average in an American football game ? a;33, b,22. c.11.’

    The answer was 11. People sit through hours of a game to see 11 minutes of action.

    WHY ?

      Perhaps it’s no longer a sporting event but is now a ‘cultural event’; an exercise in flag-waving patriotism.

        What, all of them nationwide ??? I mean, local ones as opposed to the national ones ?

        What can they be doing for the rest of the time ?

          NFL games….3 hours + long, 100 ads, 11 minutes of ball action, That is seriously strange, Why on earth would anyone want to watch THAT ?

        It meets the requirements of a modern cultural event – it’s an activity on which to hang advertising. It seeks to have everyone gathered watching the advertisements with some elite athlete entertainers as the backdrop.
