Hello Everyone & Happy Wednesday!
I have been watching as much of the Olympics as I can (work seems to keep getting in the way of that). My Wife and I were catching some highlights the other night, and we saw both the Monobob (new singles bobsled) and some of the Ice Dance Figure skating.
Now here's where I bring this back towards the question this week. While we were watching the highlights I took note of the amount of statistical data that is being presented to the viewer.
I also know that the same is true for other sports like baseball where on some stations they will show a virtual strike zone as well as where each pitch has landed in or out of the strike zone among other things.
So, my question for you this week is: Do you like seeing this extra data that is being presented to you? Or do you find it distracting and that it takes away from your enjoyment of simply watching the sport that is being played?
As I have mentioned a few times, I'm not an avid sports enthusiast. However, I do find myself drawn to watching this data and enjoying watching how things unfold based on this additional information. I for one feel more engaged by having that information available.
What are your thoughts about this? Tell me below in the comments!
Have a great rest of the week everyone!
