OK - so today I stumbled across this little gem.

Those SGI machines are the BOMB! I used to work at a place that had several for our engineers (we designed antenna's for like AT&T, T-Mobile, etc). The graphics those thigs can handle is simpley awesome.
Howstuffworks is a very cool website too, seen a ton of stuff from them.

The first down line is fine, but Fox's graphics of the down and distance, in an arrow with the teams logo CGed onto the field is a bit much. Along with the ticker that goes across the top of the screen you can barely see the game!!
