Are You Ready for Some 3D Football?

Never done 3D at a football games.

Apparently, the fine folks at ESPN do not read the Clog. Shame, because if they had, they’d be aware that 3D technology has been proven to cause “eyestrain, fatigue and headaches,” [1] all of which we’re not really that fond of.

As if watching movies in 3D doesn’t suck enough, ESPN 3D has announced that two Cal football games [2] — Oct. 6 at Oregon and Oct. 13 against USC — will broadcast in 3D.

To see the games, you’ll need a very pricey 3D-ready TV, meaning you can’t just sit at a bar wearing flimsy 3D glasses and expect anything to happen (although that would be extremely amusing to see).

The network will be broadcasting a total of 20 regular-season games, as well as the Allstate BCS National Championship and five bowl games.

If you decided against season tickets because taking BART all the way to San Francisco gives you loud-noise-induced migraines, you can now watch the Bears destroy the Trojans on your worthless 3D television and still get that headache you were trying to avoid.

Yay for 3D!
