By now, and not meaning to be presumptuous, most readers know how cool it is to have a neat, large flat screen to come home to after a rough day at work. This is one of the nation’s all-time favorite pass-times. Home entertainment on a Friday night, Saturday night, pretty much every night of the week. But another favorite pass-time, usually over weekends, is going to the ballgame, whether you’re really into the game or the cheese and chili dogs.
Or that giant modular led screen to the left or to the right, or right center in front of you, showing tons of entertaining bits and bobs in-between home runs or touchdowns. While most spectators, you included, get a kick out of watching the big screen, it must be pretty galling or intimidating for a whole lot of the refs or umpires on the sidelines. Because each and every time there is a dispute over their decisions, their glaring omissions are there for the whole world to see.
Yup! It’s on national network TV too. That has got to be one of the coolest advantages of having those giant outdoor LED TV screens pitched prominently within the stadium. It might show all who care that, jeez, the ref is only human after all, but more importantly, the game is fair. Those that deliberately cheat or foul up, in more ways than one, will be forevermore branded as the villain. Their teams may win, but they’ll be forever on a losing streak.
High schools and NGOs looking to raise extra funds can use these big screens as promotional material. It’s actually pretty easy to set up; another advantage to tick off so long. Right, half-time’s over, and it’s back to the game
