Baseball Fan Hurt in 30-Foot Fall in Montreal: A fan fell 30 feet from the bleachers during a game between the Toronto Blue Jays and New York Mets Friday night, marring the return of Major League Baseball to the city for the first time since 2004. Eyewitnesses said the man was attempting to get the wave started when he planted his feet on the rail's bottom rung, leaned towards the field, lost his footing and fell to the concrete below. He suffered serious injuries and is hospitalized in stable condition.

Toronto was playing the Mets, not Les Expos (very sad panda here).

Weird. I knew it was the Mets but typed Expos.

I think eventually there will have to be a sign on every fence or railing in the world saying, "DEAR IDIOT ..."

Not sure if you meant this when you wrote the link title, but appropriate.

Owlie, I was really hoping you would have gone with this regional reference to describe the drop.
