Signage Holding

I was at a professional football game with my friend Eric, and the woman behind me was holding up a sign that said, "I Love Eric" during commercial breaks. They did not know each other. I wondered if this woman had ever watched a professional sports event on TV, and if so, if she had ever seen a sign like the one she was holding. Those signs do not get put on TV. The only signs that get on TV are the ones that turn the TV network's name into some kind of acronym for the football game. And at that point you may as well be holding up a sign saying, "This is what I'm willing to sink to in order to get on TV." If you really have a sign you want people to see, bring it to the game and run on the field in the middle of a play. The network TV cameras won't show you, but you have a solid shot at YouTube fame.
