Never a Still Moment

To give you a flavor of the multi-media nature of modern baseball, here is a short video clip of the national anthem from the game last night.

Notice the thin horizontal video screens over the third-base line (and presumably over the first-base line where we were sitting). The effect of these was to have motion in your peripheral vision at all times. This is where the hatchet icons marched, like the hammers in Pink Floyd’s The Wall and where all manner of on-going stimulation appeared.
The video was shot with my still camera, and compressed by YouTube, so the quality is not up to reference standards, but I think you get the idea.
