When you were a kid and saw the Coyote get squashed, or your decade's equivilent , you either knew instinctively that it wasn't real or your parents told you it wasn't real.
By 5 or so every kid knows that cartoons, /tv shows and movies are not real.
As they grow they come to realize that modern studio music isn't "real" either. At least not in the sense that someone picks up a guitar, gets some backup and sounds like that. We're talking digitially remastered , spliced and diced, audio enhanced cyber music. For any who somehow haven't yet caught on that's why Live concerts sould so different.
Then came "reality TV" but we soon learned that too was scripted and lied in it's very name. Then "World's Dumbest" type clips started getting staged.
We all know fiction books aren't real by definition and that non-fiction books are usually the opinions of the victors rather than real facts.
What's my point? Simple. What are the odds that sports alone stands out in the entertainment industry has completely unscripted and "real"? Think about it. Which sells better "real" or impossible SB comebacks?
