Everyone has their own focal point on Super Bowl Sunday. Some
viewers are there for the halftime show. Others watch for the
commercials. And let’s not forget those of us who tune in to see
the main event: three hours of men in brightly colored garments,
pummeling each other, for America.
Those are all marvelous reasons to watch, but in my living room,
there was yet another, admittedly obscure facet of the game that
filled me with anticipation right up until kickoff, as I wondered,
“Will Fox premiere a new suite of onscreen graphics for the Super
Bowl?” The answer, to my delight, was yes.
It really is a good graphics system — replacing an older design that was also very good. It works well for everyone — those who are playing close attention to the game and those who are not, but just want to see what’s going on at a glance.
