On the football field, it’s pretty easy to know where you stand. The great quarterbacks — Manning, Brady, Favre — seem to have an internal clock, a rhythm for the game. They just know when the 30-second clock is about to run out. The rest of us can look up to the scoreboard to see a quick summary of the game — the score, the time remaining, the play clock.
The end zone is pretty clearly marked. Down markers, yard lines and hash marks give us immediate reference points on the football field.
