People don’t conference call during the World Cup

Today’s US-Belgium World Cup game arrived at a most inconvenient time, coming as it did just an hour before deadline here at Marketplace.

We got the first half in.

But anyway: From the files of Intercall, a conference calling company, this little nugget (which we found on Quartz):

Conference call volume last week during the US-Germany game  was off 11 percent. That’s “volume” as in the number of conference calls, not “volume” as in sound.

And to be honest, we were kind of lucky to get the show on the air today.
