… it would look like this, I’m pretty sure. Assuming he was in costume at the time, of course. (And no, haven’t seen the new one yet… don’t spoil it.)

Football: A superbly designed game

September 4, 2008
"I hope this helmet holds up."

"Boy, I sure hope these helmets were designed well."

Americans: the wait is over — football is back!  In honor the beginning of the NFL season, I thought I’d post this great article by Vinnie Mirchandani discussing innovations in the sport.  It gives a solid look at the technological reliance and complexities invovled in the modern game.

Football seems to have it all.  Strategy mixed with raw athletic talent, constantly evolving equipment to improve player safety, decision making battling physical limitations, finesse mixed with bone-crunching collisions. 

It’s a glorious game to watch: intelligent, graceful, and brutal at the same time.  It’s no wonder an estimated 75 million Americans watch football every weekend, nearly a quarter of the US population.  (Of course, there are several theories for this phenomenon…)  Enjoy the season.
