What is the best thing to do when you are on the big screen at a sporting event?
Usually people are watching something (the hockey players or the woman walking up the aisle or the man eating nachos three rows ahead of them) until someone to their left, your right, nudges them on the arm and points out their face on the big screen. They turn and see. It usually takes a moment for them to realize who it is. They first notice the person sitting next to them and think they look familiar. They see themself looking a bit above where the shot is being filmed. It takes just one more moment for them to see where the camera man is standing who is taking their picture. Then they smile and wave.
