When there’s a big, signature play or moment in sports, countless videos from the stands and bars and streets pop up online. But, most people, at the time of day when such moments typically occur, are barely conscious on the couch, trying to keep their eyes open and at least one ear turned on lest they miss something. Rarely are those decidedly boring reactions captured on film.
I got a Nest camera for the baby. It’s awesome. I’ve been moving it around the house until he shows up, mostly to keep an eye on the dog on the rare occasions where I leave the house. You can draw outlines around just certain parts of the frame and receive a notification if something moves through it. You can speak through the camera (a genuine scare tactic I’ve placed neatly in my back pocket). And, for better or worse… you can rewind your life. This morning I realized I had it running during Aaron Rodgers’ hail mary last night, for which I, conveniently, woke up just in time. And yep, Nest captured all of the pure, unadulterated excitement.
