When my sister was in her twenties her passion was skydiving.  Back in those days, the seventies, parachutes were round and notoriously hard to maneuver.  Once she landed on a water tower and had to be rescued by the Fire Dept.

Her greatest skydiving feat occurred when she was participating in a group dive.  They were all supposed to land in a football stadium at halftime (I think it was at Penn State). Everyone but Amy overshot the stadium.  Amy landed on the 50 yardline.  When she took her helmet off someone yelled "It's a girl!."  The stadium erupted in thunderous applause.
