Attempted Sousacide

Sousacide?
Never mind those freshly shackled crackheads, a cameraman's gotta keep his one good eye on those pesky marching band members - especially when they're in the throes of spelling something special. Such was the case this past weekend when Ohio State University sousaphone player Frank Cosenza "dotted the i", nearly lopping off the lens of an ESPN fancycam. DOH! Now, to be fair Cosenza told the loitering lenslinger to "Watch Out!" a full second before he brought the horn in question crashing downward. Parts flew, the photog stumbled off and somewhere Kanye West kicked a girl scout in the teeth. All's fair in love and college football, I guess...

Love the headline! And I'm glad we never miss a chance now to diss Kanye!

'Slinger,
I was at that game, and I am sorry I missed the sousacide.

14th picture down (sorry, can't link to the individual picture). Check out that poor fellow and his mammoth 3d fancyfancy cam.

So what do you think went flying there. He never drops the camera. Do you think it was his headphones? I couldn't figure that out Saturday when I watched it live either.

I believe it was his lenshade.

Watching the video frame by frame in an editor, the sousa player broke off part of his viewfinder.

I think the cameraman got the better end of the deal. He'll get his viewfinder fixed. That sousaphone player had to grow up in the age of Seinfeld with a name just two letters away from being "Frank Costanza."

It won't work in actual fact, that's exactly what I suppose.
