#164 The look on someone’s face when they realize they’re on the big screen at the game

It’s a classic scene.

Between innings at the ballgame the camera pans the crowd looking for screaming kids, sleeping babies, and superfans. When the 14-year-olds with the painted chests, Grandma with blue hair and thirty pins on her shirt, or the kissing couple pops on the screen, it’s a great little moment.

Everyone in the crowd gets to watch someone blow up to supersize in front of thousands of people. And we get to watch their reaction range from red-cheek blushes, horrified screams, complete indifference, or wild cheering. Nobody knows what’s coming, either! We might get a little dance if we’re lucky. Maybe even some hip shaking. Or a big two-armed scream of

  1. Neil, you have a remarkable way of posting about things just as i have been experiencing them in my own life. I dont know how you do it, but it is awesome! Although i have yet to see myself on the big screen at any game, i love seeing other people react to seeing themselves on the screens. Fingers crossed that i will get a chance soon!

  2. And to think, that’s how they found Pamela Anderson, in 1989, during a BC Lions game at BC Place, wearing a Labatts Tshirt.
    Go figure.

  3. Love the painted faces with a meganormous bottle of wine…ooohoo feeling good mama, lalalalalala-la, lalalalaaaaaaaaaaaaa.

  4. I’m a pro at being on fanivision. My most recent experience was at a minor league danfcing on the bleachers with some friends, wearing a shirt that read “McAwesome.”

  5. I kind of agree. It is amazing seeing their faces when they’re spotted, but I get soooo frustrated when 99.9% of them then wave (at themselves) on the big screen rather than looking at the camera. The only time it happened to me, I was quick enough to think to look (and wave) at the camera rather than the big screen. My friends said I looked much cooler than the people around me (who all went gaga and waved at the big screen)

  6. Love the picture of Miller Park! We have a brand new shiny wonderful scoreboard this year, it’s awesome. Go Brewers!
