Took me a second to recall that PDA was 'public displays of affection', I was a bit confused at first that the article was saying that not every likes palm pilots.

I'm usually the same way when I see "PDA".

And when it comes to "ATM", my first thought is a cash machine, not a kinky act.

I'll admit it, I always laugh when they put the kiss-cam on the opposing hockey team and a guy kisses his teammate on the cheek.

Just a regular crowd can but with the picture tinted or clip art hearts superimposed around it or whatever. They point it at people who look like couples and if you end up on it you're supposed to kiss.

scarmig: I read the article, but I still don't know what a Kiss Cam is.


Kiss cam is an event that happens at virtually all arena sporting events. During a break in action, in order to keep the crowd entertained/involved in the action, cameramen will pan around and try to find couples in the stands, throw the "Kiss Cam" logo around it, and those two are expected to kiss. The ones that are usually most well-received are hot chicks kissing and old couples kissing. The ones that are least well-received are when they shoot two players from the opposing team's bench and they flip off the camera.

Also related: Dance cam, fist pump cam, and others I can't think of right now. Sometimes they have a sponsor and the "winner" gets a little prize.

That's it. I am never voting for a president who misses a KISS CAM opportunity. /s

The local paper already has the nut job "he should be working and not going to a game" rage.

Also, Fark would be the only place in the world where people use the term PDA to refer to anything but public displays of affection. Cell phones exist now that are way more awesome than all those stupid PDAs that people used, and no one uses the other kind anymore.

Here's what's always bothered me about the kiss cam: What if you're at the game with your sister? Obviously you don't kiss her, and obviously everybody has no idea and boos, and there you are getting mass disapproval for the entirely reasonable act of not kissing your sister.

Go to a Buffalo Bills game (for the laughs) and you'll see the need for just such a cam. They also need a 'I'm-banging-my-skank-in-a-bathroom-stall-cam."

Just kiss her. Either its awkward for a while but eventually becomes a funny anecdote or its hot and you can just skip that awkward "getting to know her" part of the relationship and skip directly to getting her ponytail tangled in her ankle bracket.

I find it more telling that they made a photo-op out of it by sending the beat reporters back to cover a 'repeat' Kiss Cam.

"This is the PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES, we must have another Kiss Cam!"

Coach K apparently didn't like Obama visiting his locker room, some funny quotes:


"He was just socializing with us,'' Krzyzewski said . "I'm not sure he knew the score of the game.''

"He wished us Godspeed,'' Krzyzewski said. "I said, 'You should have told them just a bit to start hitting shots.'''

For some reason, while Europeans attending sporting events make their own noise, sing songs, and act like farking alive out there, Americans sit quietly on their asses unless the authorities instruct them to make noise.

/then again, I can't remember that last time American burned down their own stadium, so there's that

It happens. You're booed and life continues. My favorites are the couples who really are couples, but the chick isn't there yet and she refuses to kiss him. Or, she's just there to take in a free game with a guy and she wants everybody looking to know that she's not with him. So, she shakes her head "no" and makes the face like she just bit into a dogshiat sandwich. And the guy kind of shakes his head like, "No, I don't want to kiss her" when we all know he'd lick her from forehead to ass-crack if she let him.
