Gaming During the Game
There are lots of lulls in the action, even for a self-proclaimed sports fan like myself. These lulls seem custom made for gaming. But still, I find I get so wrapped up while gaming that I'll often miss those key bits I'd want to focus on if all my attention was on the television during the sports events.
Some sports lend themselves to radio. I think baseball is actually more engaging and spirited when broadcast on radio by a pair of experienced broadcasters. Their inflections and descriptions really add to the flair, and let me know when to focus my attention. For that, I don't mind boardgaming while listening, since I'll "look up" from the boardgame and focus on what's going on when their inflection tells me to.
What about you? Do you game while watching or listening to sports? Which sports and games lend themselves to this the best?
