Football In A Social, Local and Mobile World
There are a few infographic that we do not fully cherish or embrace. Two of the infographs refer to the social media surrounding the show X Factor. We do love the idea of talent shows, and one of our favourite shows is America’s Got Talent. We love these shows for the shows themselves, for the up-and-coming talents, and for seeing how far the acts can progress. However, when an infograph reports on not the show but the social media surrounding the show and participants then it, in our view, borders on the edge of madness.
Other lackluster infographs refer to football (soccer to Americans). We do not dispute that it is the most popular sport in the world, but we do wonder why. In the U.S., there are several professional sports leagues: American football, baseball, basketball, hockey, and even soccer is beginning to make its presence felt. Baseball, hockey and soccer all are low-scoring games and, for this reason, many people view them as being slow and boring. It is for this reason that we prefer cricket to baseball. There are many similar themes between the two, but cricket is higher-scoring and more eventful.
Of course, aficionados of football will aver that it is the strategy, tactics, the evenness of the level of play, and the nature of the game itself that makes it exciting and edge-of-your-seat excitement. That undoubtedly is true but we have yet to develop an appreciation for it.
For those who do love “the beautiful game”, these are heart-warming infographs.
