Real Honorable Mention

New York Yankee fans (and the kid, only for his final words before the jump).

A thrill-seeking teenager hoping to make ESPN highlights plunged over 50 feet from the upper deck seats into the netting behind home plate last night in the eighth inning of the Yankees' 2-1 loss to the White Sox, landing in front of a stunned Yankee Stadium crowd of 53,946.

"His exact words, were, 'Bro, I don't know, bro,' " his friend, Spadafino said.
As Derek Jeter laid down a bunt in the eighth, Harper plunged, feet-first, onto the backstop to the amazement of everyone in the Stadium. He had planned his leap for several minutes, according to witnesses, and caught the ire of the paying customers seated behind him who could not see the late-game action.

"Every single person sitting there was saying either sit down or jump off," Tripi said after the three friends were questioned by NYPD officers.
"He always makes a scene," Tripi said after Harper was carted off in an ambulance at 10:34 p.m. and carted off to Lincoln Medical Center.
