I worked as an usher at Dania Jai-Alai in 1975/76 season, it was xmas week, picture this 9000 screaming fans standing room only, they actually had a section upstairs at the back wall for standees, that's where I was that night when a women climbs over the upstairs rail of the balcony around mid court and starts screaming at the top of her lungs that she was cheated and the aliens were coming to get her and all kinds of wild things, this was right in the middle of a game. Play came to a screeching halt for about 25 minutes while police tried to coax her back over the railing all the while she was threating to jump. they finally distracted her and grabbed her with alot of help from the staff. CRAZZZZY! after that the power outages, heart attacks in the isles, people fainting, etc. were anticlimatic. Oh for the good old days....................
