    I have noticed something strange while watching sports on TV. Many time when the camera shows clips of the crowd before and after commercials, a majority of the people have these bland expressionless looks at their faces.

    I know they shell out a lot of money to attend these events, couldn't at least pretend to look enthused?

    It's before and after commercials, which means the game is paused for a TV-time-out, or between innings or periods or quarters or what have you. There is no action going on at the time, so there's not need to be excited. I get what you're saying though. With the price a lot of pro sporting events command, you should be getting all your money's worth having a great time.

    You're probably right. But some of these people just look miserable, almost as if they were dragged there.

    I suppose if you were to photograph anyone in a candid moment, they would look the same.

    Lots of the stadiums show commercials during TV timeouts, which could account for the boredom. Or, they could be watching baseball.
  7. the games are paused for commercials over there?
