The man above was a word they seemed to know, though they had not heard it before.” The Spectators here are seen communally agreeing as they are shown breathing in one breath and depicted as viewing the spectacle as a word they had never before heard. They see the wire and the balancing pole the walker has in his hands. There is still fear, but then amazement and awe as the tightrope walker performs his act, including hopping and lying down on the wire. The author captures the mob psychology of the event with some in the crowd hoping to see a spectacular fall and tragic death and others hoping to see the magic of a seemingly impossible performance. Thus, McCann establishes his mission for the novel: the reader will experience both the grief and the joy that are part of life.
The congregation’s heads twisted into contorted positions as they tried to catch a glimpse of the striker bending the ball into the net. Faces surrounding us unleashed battle cries of victory. The players on the field paraded around the pitch, only increasing the euphoria. Terrifyingly, the man next to me was beating his fists on the chair behind me, his face turning blue from his continuous support, his cheeks only getting a slight tinge of red from the nipping wind that continued to gust through the bleachers, in the open-air theatre of dreams.

His friends were just letting their hair down in their earnestness to pay him honor. And they stopped just short of a good, mass cry.” Gehrig's speech inspired millions and also raised awareness for the crippling and sometimes life threatening disease that is ALS.
Throughout the novel, Winston constantly references the fact that ‘Today there were fear, hatred and pain’ and that in this society of Ingsoc ‘No emotion was pure, because everything was mixed up with fear and hatred’ and this is displayed in many, various ways. An example of this is when Winston writes about when he went to see a film stating that the ‘Audience were much amused by shots of a great huge fat man trying to swim away with a helicopter after him’ and that ‘there was a wonderful shot of a child’s arm going up up up right up into the air…and there was a lot of applause from the party seats’. This displays the extent to which
In the story when He reached down to Freak and let him see the firework, Max does states “‘I pick him up and I’m amazed” “There are so many people crowded around, all he can see are feet and knees, and people are lifting their little kids up to see the fireworks explode like hot pink flowers in the sky, and so I just sort of reach down without thinking and pick up Freak and set him on my shoulders” (32)(cite page number where quote occurs).

During the horrifying event the king laughed maniacally at the riddance of the man.

The boo’s and the hollers had become so immense that the referee had to blow his whistle shouting inaudible words to the audience.

The piece that was played during this particular piece was titled “Miracle of the Ark”. This particular piece was rather ominous and made the seen overall seem very suspenseful in the build up to the ark finally being opened. The actual moment that the ark is opened in the movie the orchestra quiets down and the string instruments play a rather fast suspenseful note while everyone looks on to see what is in the ark. It is then that the scene gets more intense with ghosts guarding the ark and melting anyone that looks at them. To make this scene seem more intense and powerful the orchestra really matched that and grew in volume.
“Now presenting your Chicago Bulls!” the announcer screamed as smoke poured into the stadium, and the lights went out. “Starting as head guard, Derrick Rose”, came screeching through the speakers. The crowd was on their feet as all the other players were called by name and ran on to the freshly shined court. There were screams of “We love you Derrick”, while shouts of insults, obviously from fans of the opposing team, the New York Knicks reverberated through the arena. As each player`s name was called, there was a brief flicker of the lights to give that almost slow motion effect as the players took each step.
