Patty a.k.a. McGyver
Problem: getting a ball as a token from batting practice that fell inbetween the wall and the stands.
Patty whips out her bag and dumps the contents. Out of the myriad of objects in the bag, she selects: a waterbottle, capri pants, a necklace, a hairband, tape, a usb camera cord and rigs up a device to get the ball with added objects such as her handbag and jean jacket.
I'll give her credit -- she had people rooting for her, the Tampa Bay DevilRay players took notice and laughed, and she had amazing ingenuity. But alas, she couldn't quite pull a McGyver. She never got the ball but I had a ton of laughs!
