random deafsports thoughts (new feature)

you watch a deaf sports event (no matter if it is
football or baseball or basketball) on host
school’s video system.

frustrating to deal with different problems -
grainy videos or herky-jerky usage of the
camera or players “so far away” from the
camera that they look like ants! And even
worse, no clue as to the score or even of
the time clock (or inning) in that game!

Several months ago DeafDigest Sports editor
had an appointment with deaf dentist Dr.
Steve Rattner. While waiting to be called
up, the editor watched a junior college
basketball game on TV (Montgomery College
vs Garrett College). The game cameras were
operated by Montgomery students majoring
in TV. The big surprise was that the
camera focused close up on the players
during the game – you can see everything,
players’ facial expressions, movements
with the ball and without the ball,
angry players taken out of the game, etc.
We do not see that with NBA and NCAA-I
games!
