Odd sense of humor

What the heck was L doing coming off the baseline waving off the shot?

Presumably this was a pretty big game and L doesn't know to at least conference with his crew?

Is there any way they do NOT find this woman? She must be known to other fans who were there. Interested to see how this will play out. Shame on that entire group if nothing comes of it.
