As more sports leagues opt for digital broadcast options, the whole idea of what it means to watch a game is going to change
Being a sports fan used to mean plopping down on the couch—or, if you were lucky, in the stands—and watching a game. That’s not really how it works anymore.

Instead, we’re checking reactions on Twitter, hunting for highlights on Instagram and sending OMG-that-shot faces on Snapchat.
