If You Love Sports, You Should Hate Highlights

There’s not much variance in the range of points scored, in any sport, on any given day.
(Similarly, for you fantasy players, individual stats fall within a predictable range.)

ESPN is essentially an aggregate of scores, numbers, and ten second highlights. Bits and pieces of the story. To me, that’s worthless.

Don’t miss the story. Watch the whole game. Even if you already know the score.

I promise you that watching Sunday’s game on Tuesday is awesome. There are no commercials. In addition, you get to have fun watching your kid play at that birthday party instead of fiddling with your smart phone for two hours.

The final score does not provide exhilarating drama. The highlights do not capture the buildup.

How they got to the finish does.
