One Second of Fame

While sitting here at home working (to the extent that they're feeding me any work to do), I used the other laptop to download the NZ Maori-Ireland match that I attended last weekend with dave_gallaher. (I can't access MediaZone through the company network -- it's blocked -- and while I'm using my personal laptop, it's logged into the company network via VPN.) I'm now watching the match from a different perspective.

Of course, since I know exactly where I was sitting, I also had an eye out to see if I could spot myself in the stands. Right after the first Maori try, at 10:44 in the match and 21:26 into the MediaZone downloaded file, they briefly pan the stands, and I saw me and Dave in the middle of the shot. My head is turned away from the camera, and Dave is blocked by the person in front of him, but I'm pretty sure it's us.

Update, 22:15: Initially I wrote here that I couldn't grab a frame to show here, but one of the comments below, I was able to make the necesssary change to be able to do so.

And here is our brief shot on camera:



That's me in the white baseball cap and blue-and-white USA rugby shirt. Dave is to the left, wearing a wide-brimmed hat; unfortunately, the man in the brown shirt and brown baseball cap in front of him nearly completely obscures him. And we're all looking up-field (and thus away from the camera) because the Maori had just scored a breakaway try.
