Also a material amount of blame on the TV broadcast who kept showing the poor guy looking all vulnerable in his headphones and turtleneck and getting escorted out. Showing the replay is fair game, but showing the reality story of the poor fan in the wrong place/wrong time was trashy. There's a reason he was a popular Halloween costume - because we all saw him on TV over and over again in this pose well after the play:

I even remember them saying "he's wearing headphones, which means he's probably listening to the broadcast and knows what he just did" or something like that. The story was being written that way for the fans to consume - so can't blame it all on the fans.

The story of my life: It's not that I'm in denial of being a nerd. It's that everyone else is in denial of how incredibly cool I am.
