Kevin DeYoung recently posted a blog citing a study which found that out of the 3 hours a person spends watching a televised football game they only see 11 minutes of actual football being played. The rest of the time is filled with commercials, huddles, replays etc.
Now I have never felt the need to be constantly doing something, as I do not believe that busyness equates to productivity, and I LOVE football but I am not quite sure what to think after reading this. Don't get me wrong I am not going to stop following the sport or watching it on T.V. but I am definitely going to have to consider how to redeem some of that time. 3 hours for 11 minutes just doesn't seem like a very good investment.
