Angels fan goes from being terrified of foul ball to stealthily grabbing it out of a scrum

But you clearly haven't put as much thought into it as this Angels fan, who transformed the souvenir scrum from a game of checkers among first graders into ruthless three-dimensional chess.

The celebration dance, while everyone is still looking for the ball, is just a perfect twist of the knife -- so innocently joyous, so far removed from that cruel game of foul ball rope-a-dope.
