Oh Victoria... (schneier.com)


    On March 4, University of California Berkeley (Cal) played a basketball game against the University of Southern California (USC). With Cal in contention for the PAC-10 title and the NCAA tournament at stake, the game was a must-win.

    Enter "Victoria."

    Victoria was a hoax UCLA co-ed, created by Cal's Rally Committee. For the previous week, "she" had been chatting with Gabe Pruitt, USC's starting guard, over AOL Instant Messenger. It got serious. Pruitt and several of his teammates made plans to go to Westwood after the game so that they could party with Victoria and her friends.

    On Saturday, at the game, when Pruitt was introduced in the starting lineup, the chants began: "Victoria, Victoria." One of the fans held up a sign with her phone number.

    The look on Pruitt's face when he turned to the bench after the first Victoria chant was priceless. The expression was unlike anything ever seen in collegiate or pro sports. Never did a chant by the opposing crowd have such an impact on a visiting player. Pruitt was in total shock.

    The chant "Victoria" lasted all night. To add to his embarrassment, transcripts of their IM conversations were handed out to the bench before the game: "You look like you have a very fit body." "Now I want to c u so bad."


Pranks like this, and the VA Tech student that broke into Virginia's Scott Stadium to spray paint a huge "T" next to the "V" at midfield last year are why I absolutely love college sports. I just wish there had been more pictures, or video, or SOMETHING of this outstanding prank...

That's one of the funniest things I've read in a long time. Absolutely TREMENDOUS.



TO BILL BRASKY!

My LiveJournal, where you can read tons of stuff that you don't give a crap about.

"Doubt f***s everything. Take a foundation, no matter how strong, sprinkle generously with doubt, and watch it crumble. Me? I'm unf***withable. Not this knee, not bad weather, and certainly not the many men that wish bad intentions on me can stop me. I rise up, not like a phoenix, but like the zombie corpse of Dick Murdoch. This brainbuster is for you." - C.M. Punk

I can't find it on their website, but Hot Topic here in Green Bay had a couple of retro-looking screen printed Pacers T-shirts...the older logo with the hand. Something like that. (Courtesy Chris Creamer's Sports Logos Indiana Pacers section)
