Sports That are Greatly Improved By Watching Them in High Definition
I honestly think that HDTV was invented for watching football. When I first saw footage of Super Bowl XXXV in Hi-Def, I was sold!
I've never been much of a hockey guy, but watching it in Hi-Def is turning me around some. Now if we can just get them to stop following the puck so much. Lock the camera down and let me follow the action.
Finally, I can actually see who touched the ball last and make informed decisions on possession.
Now that I'm living on a system that has Speed in HD I can finally see Formula 1 the way it was meant to be seen. And even though I am not (and never will be) a NACAR guy, I get the appeal a little more in HD.
My favorite thing about attending a major league game is that first look at the field. That was always lost in standard-def. HD kind of brings that good feeling back with every game.
Oh, who am I kidding, I watch 3 horse races a year, but, like baseball, I'm blown away by the view of the venues.
Not that I watch a lot of Bull Riding or Rodeo, but being in the chute with a cowboy as he prepares for a ride is a pretty amazing thing. In 1080P it'll knock your socks off!
