I knew I'd forget something. The item of the night was quite unusual. All of a sudden, here's this green something in the sky, moving quit fast. Everyone on the field saw it. "What's the heck is that?" from every where. Then the usual, "UFO...UFO...UFO" from those who are very quick to assume that. Actually, for a moment, it was an actual UFO, Unidentified Flying Object. Again, UFO does not stand for Alien Space Ship, that's Language Removed. A quick look through the binos or a small telescope reviled the true nature of a UFO. Someone released 2 black helium balloons with a green glowstick tied to it. Very good! Pretty funny. It wins item of the night.
That's it;

PS. I'm not giving it item of the night to start of trend of this sort of thing. Once is funny, that's it.
