1st and 10, A Technical Feat!

Yellow Line

What better time to discuss the technical wonder of sports television broadcasts than Super Bowl weekend? I’m a nerdy tech guy at heart, but I also love my sports. I especially love my football (the one where you use your hands…). On more than one occasion, I’ve found myself entrenched in my sofa, staring down the flat screen and yelling plays at the completely deaf athletes oblivious to my coaching genius…

Watching the game on tv is a favorite pass time and the game has come along way in how it has been presented to us over the years.

Ever wonder how they do it?

Well, you are not alone, and the folks over at Vox have put together this awesome video showing just how complicated that little line is:

Who knew that much work went into painting that line across the field!
