This reminds me of one of my biggest gripes relative to watching
sporting events these days: stupid camera tricks. Have you ever watched
coverage of the Ironman Triathlon in Kona, Hawaii? It's a barrage of
annoying effects (and irrelevant "sidebar" pieces), that seriously
hinder your ability to watch the thing you're trying to watch. Same
thing with any of the "extreme sports" stuff -- one annoying effect
after another.
