I remember something similar during the last summer Olympics, where the
announcers would explain the basic elements and rules of particular events. I
liked it, and I wished they had done something similar during the last World
Cup, because I didn't know anything about soccer and found it a little hard to
follow. I also like it when football broadcasters explain a particular term
or strategy; it enhances my enjoyment of the game. Maybe more sophisticated
viewers roll their eyes, but I like it.
