Average Baseball Game Has Just 18 Minutes of Action

The number crunchers at the Wall Street Journal sat down with their VCRs, stopwatches, and pencils — and watched hours and hours of sports. Their conclusion; the average 3-hour baseball game has just 18 minutes of actual action (which was better than football).

The average NFL game only had 11 minutes of snap-to-whistle action in an entire game. Good for selling (car/beer/shaving/Viagra/etc.) commercials I guess. Can you say TiVo?

They didn’t look at basketball or hockey, but I would think they would produce higher numbers since the players spend a lot more time moving up and down the court or ice.

Now you know.
