    My iPhone does 120fps....

    BTW I was even surprised to hear they record football games at all let alone on FILM, I thought I was confused at first and that NFL was some other thing... So they actually RECORD and save whole football games? Why? ....

    Not only that, rabid sports fans pay for "coaches film" so they can rewatch every play and analyze teams and other such things in lieu of having a life.
    Nice work. You have a very talented computer.

    That's insane! Get out and play yourself! Instead they get fat on chips and dip and yell at a box with light coming out of it, we are much cooler, we get out there and put light INTO a box

    Most elite-level athletic performances have a beauty when viewed in ultra-slow motion that often escapes the eye at normal speeds. American football is one. Basketball more so. Even baseball, that slowest and most asymmetric of all games.

    Have you ever watched an ultra-slow motion major league pitcher's curve ball from the batter's point-of-view? It's an astounding visual to actually see the "red dot" that elite hitters can pick out with ease, judge its location on the ball during only a tiny fraction of a second, then adjust their bat motion as they uncoil, and majestically pull that pitch 435-feet over the left field fence.

    Even if one doesn't like American football, for similar reasons watching NFL Films can be a visual joy to behold.

    If you guys had watched some of the NFL Films stuff you wouldn't be wondering what the big deal is. Even if you're not a football fan you'd appreciate what they're doing, it's unique in pro sports and it is really well done.

    Somehow I think Bill may not be a Seahawks fan!

    Ha! 43-8 final! Go Hawks!

    Monroe is about an hour northeast of Seattle. Way out in the rural nowhere. As I type this someone somewhere outside in the cold and dark distance is putting up a full fireworks show. Last Friday I arrived on a flight into SeaTac airport. People on their way out to the game were chanting in unison throughout the terminal. The fans here are going nuts. 1979 was a long time ago...

    [Edit: My better half advises that at the grocery store down in town earlier this afternoon someone got on the PA system and started it off by screaming "Sea!" The entire store, customers and employees, screamed back "Hawks!" Over and over. Everybody in the Greater Puget Sound region is dressed up as an osprey. 12th Man crazies.]
