I love #25: Music at NBA games When do you listen to the most music? In the car? Doing yard work? During monotonous periods at your job? Sitting by the pool? Working out? Cooking? Chores? In other words, music is often played to enliven boring activities. Side note: NBA arenas play music during NBA games.

This was an experimental stage of the NFL to try to make the game more exciting. For instance, if an extra point or field goal went over both goal posts, the kicking team would receive twice the amount of points than normal, i.e. two points for an XP and six points for a FG. Also, to encourage passing, if the QB threw a pass that went over the first goal post, i.e. it was caught between the two goal posts, the scoring team world receive nine points instead of six for the touchdown. In addition, if any player ran into the goal post and was knocked unconscious, the opposing team would receive two points. This led to strategies where teams would try to run or lead opposing players into said goal posts. This is also where the term safety and its subsequent two points was derived from.
