Q:

Dear 100 Hour Board,
How do they get the yellow line to appear on a football field where the first down mark is? It shows up no matter what camera angle and when players cross it or fall down on it, they cover it up. Isn't that cool? How do they do it?

A: Dear Sabbath G,

Computers. Very spiffy computers. The same ones that can generate a three dimensional rotation seemingly on the fly. Now THAT is cool.

A: Dear Sabbath G,
