Although I've played plenty of sports, I'm not into watching them, at all. But jesus do we need something besides politics for people to get their tribal fix in.Just look at previous posts for examples of absurd, race/class SJW virtue signaling, which ultimately leads to more divisiveness, not less.If sports is the answer, I'll (reluctantly) accept it.
Oh, great. The creepy company that abuses monopolistic power, keeps unsecured personal information on their servers (including from facebook), has a poor reputation on privacy, is connected to an incredibly partisan newspaper, and has connections with the cia, is going to have an earth-wide network that has the capability to track anyone that uses it (and probably many that don't).
What could go wrong?

Credit cards are still my go-to payment method even my "Wallet" app has all the cards in there. This is more of a habit that I'm used to. Not to mention when pumping gas, who wants to walk all the way in the store just to use Apple Pay when the pump accepts only cards.
This is so brilliant. I've been so frustrated with the lack of merchant adoption of Apple pay, but this should make up for it and then some. (It's still absurd that Apple says, what is it now, 80% adoption? Nope. Not in sit down restaurants, bars, most gas pumps, most supermarkets, home depot, lowes, etc.)I will definitely be signing up, and I'm sure I'm not the only one. Maybe for credit card whizzes it's not the best deal (so long as you don't care about privacy), but I'm guessing I'm in the majority: even as a pretty successful/resourceful person, I still have a lot of difficulty keeping up with all the details of credit card stuff, and I'm sure I'm getting ripped off.Now, with people carrying their (freakin' awesome) Apple Card around with them, they're going to be asking merchants, "wait, is this a regular credit card or do you take Apple Pay (so I can get my 2%)."In addition, putting the daily cash into the the Apple Pay Cash card will 1) make it very clear that they will be getting rewards (instead of it just being put back into the credit card balance with minimal psychological impact), 2) incentivize further Apple Pay use, and 3) incentivize more person to person transfers.The more people use Apple Card/Pay/Cash the more influence Apple will have to convince banks/merchants to make the process even better (eg eliminate signing, pins, etc).Win, win, win, win, win...
