Muse-in' football

Okay, not to Farscape yet, but to football and some fun playing by the Oregon Ducks. They just held off the UCLA Bruins at the goal line and then (with a nice spin move) got the ball down to midfield. I both cheered and laughed.

This is also the first time I’ve seen ABC’s addition to the special effects that get added to the screen for football, putting the play clock on the back of the superimposed down marker. In other words, on the back end of the graphic that says “2nd and 7” or whatever is the play clock, counting down. I’m not used to it and I don’t immediately like it: It adds a little too much movement to the image. I think it’s distracting, and the play clock is still on the upper right next to the scores. One bit of info too much. I want to see the players moving, not the clock!

Another TV thought: Okay, that’s righteous, using Muse’s “Uprising” in the commercial for the remake of V.
