Sports channels sometimes run separate feeds of isolated camera shots of specific players. In D.C. we have the OvechKam, a dedicated camera that sticks with Capitals star Alex Ovechkin for an entire hockey game and airs on the TV station's website. ESPN does similar things for big games.
Here and now, I declare that NBC should start a SashaCam for Saturday's Wimbledon final, a feed which would show New Jersey Nets player Sasha Vujacic watching, reacting and wincing his way through the match of his fiancee, Maria Sharapova. Watching Vujacic has been my third-favorite thing to do at Wimbledon, behind Pippa-watching and muting Victoria Azarenka's matches.
He's so demonstrative during the matches with his claps and cheers and worried looks that it's almost more captivating than what's happening on the court. It's not that he cares more than other player's significant others like Mirka Federer or Kim Sears, he just wears it on his sleeve more.
What follows are a few pictures of Sasha watching Masha from the fortnight.
