Some players thrive off playing in front of large crowds, so the 2020 season is a strange one for every athlete, no matter the sport.

Sure, there’s fake crowd noise being pumped through stadiums across North America while teams continue to play in front of no crowds or small crowds, but that doesn’t do it for everyone. So, the next best thing is to act like nothing has changed and to pretend all the seats are still occupied.

Just ask Atlanta Falcons centre Alex Mack.


Alex Mack hyping up the non-existent crowd during intros is killing me 😂 (via justin_fox5/TW)

We’re not sure if other players around the league ran out onto the field like this, but the pointing the fake crowd is way too good.

Hopefully he does this every home game.
