This is going to sound familiar, but I repeat, photographing the damage as it is being inflicted can be helpful for an insurance claim.

I'll leave comparison of the soccer fan to the grizzly up to you. (thanks Jordan)

From DxO:
 
DxO Optics Pro v7.5: support for the D800 and increased performance
 
Substantially revised to function as a native 64-bit application, DxO Optics Pro v7.5 offers much faster previews and processing, and handles much larger files, for increased productivity.
 
DxO Optics Pro v7.5 is now faster overall, including quicker processing, and can handle much larger files, among them those of the Nikon D800 and its 36-megapixel full-frame sensor*.
 
*Given the file sizes of the D800, this camera is supported only by the 64-bit version of DxO Optics Pro v7.5. (Requires a 64-bit system.)
 
Numerous improvements to the interface
 
The interface of the Windows version of DxO Optics Pro v7.5 has been enhanced with numerous features to make it even more pleasant to use.
 
The Move/Zoom palette has been optimized and aligned with that of the Mac version to permit better image visibility.
 
New for Windows:
 
The image filter menu has been improved to allow easier and quicker photo selection.
 
With Windows 7, it is possible to see the processing progress in the task bar.
 
Many other small improvments, notably additional keyboard shortcuts.
 
Visit DxO for more information.
 
Visit B&H to purchase DxO Optics Pro.

eBay has the Sandisk Ultra 64GB 30MB/s Class 10 SDXC UHS-I Memory Card as a Daily Deal for only $39.00 shipped.
 
Note that memory cards are frequently counterfeited - I recommend buying memory cards from reputable retailers only. In this case, I would trust Beach Camera.

For insurance purposes, it is always best to have photos of the damage being claimed. Better yet, photograph the damage being inflicted (LensRentals.com).
 
When you are renting thousands of cameras and lenses, great stories are sure to follow. (thanks Sean)
