Sounds about right.
That's freaking awesome.
Before the PVR came along, you either had to wait for the TV timeouts or intermission to go pee......
"Oh, man. I have to go to the bathroom. Why did I have all that beer and coffee and watermelon?"
Pretty sure I saw this on MSNBC or something, pretty damn funny.
Agreed. It was an exciting game, and I know I waited for the intermissions as well.
The only surprise is that anyone would be surprised. It was a great game. It will have been played on screens in public places all over the country.
Someone has posted video of what Vancouver sounded like when the winning goal was scored. It's worth listening to the 1st minute and a bit of normal city life to get a sense of what Vancouver sounded like when the puck went into the net. Don't forget to turn your sound on.
Cool. People used the restroom at intermissions and watched the game while it was on. This is life changing.
You can see the relief after the medals ceremony!
No one claimed that this is life-changing data.
The funny/interesting part isn't the fact that "People used the restroom at intermissions and watched the game while it was on."
It's funny/interesting because there is actual data and a graph showing the correlation of the timing of the game and bathroom use.
Just like the superbowl/fifa world cup
Makes me proud to be an Edmontonian
It's not that people used the washrooms, its how many people were heading for the loo. Look at the scale on the left. At one point it leapt from 320 units to 460 units over the course of just minutes. Baseline should have been about 400 units.
I've heard that 80% of Canada watched at least a portion of the game. I don't know of an event that has approached that level recently. Keep in mind how many people at that time who did not have access to a TV. Pilots, doctors and nurses in the operating room. Police and firefighters, paramedics on a call. I figure just about everyone who had access to a TV that day tuned in for at least a short time.
^^^ So what?
Just figured this was a random sporting event viewing stats analyses thread, duh.
Actually it was mainly a response to snberk103 stating:
Take it or leave it.
He was referring to the percentage of the population who watched (at least a part of) the game.
Super Bowl in the US: 153.4 million/309 million = 49%
Gold Medal Game in Canada: 26.5 million/33 million = 80%
I was in a supermarket cafeteria with my wife and daughter when the game was on and all the product display TVs were actually tuned to the game. People stopped their shopping to watch the game until a break and then continued on. Most bizarre but very Canadian.
No doubt. I contributed to that graph!
Everyone knows you pee during the Super Bowl so as not to miss the commercials.
Thank You. Couldn't have said it better myself...
It's all part of The Toad's plan.
