View Full Version : Hilarious prank by Cal students

At last Saturday's Cal men's hoops season finale versus USC, Bears boosters pulled a prank that straddles the fuzzy gray line between "Crap-Yer-Pants Hilarious" and "Inexcusably Cruel."

When USC guard Gabe Pruitt took his first trip to the free throw line early in the game, the Cal student section hollered in unison: "VIC-TOR-IA, VIC-TOR-IA," and then yelled out a telephone number. Pruitt glanced back at the crowd in horror and bewilderment before clanking his free throws.

It turns out that a couple of mischevious little [students] from the Cal student section had been IM'ing with Pruitt all week under the identity of "Victoria," a fictional UCLA hottie, and Pruitt was eagerly anticipating a date with this nubile co-ed back in Westwood after the game. In preparation for the date, Pruitt had handed over his digits, which the Cal student section recited back to him in unison.

Pruitt, a 79% free throw shooter this season, missed both shots after the "VIC-TOR-IA" chants began, and hit only three out of 13 shots the whole game. Cal beat USC by 11 for the season sweep, in part due to the Cal fans' devious psy-ops.

As funny as that story is, the box score says Pruitt went 9 for 9 from the line. Still a great prank though.

This one says he went 4 outta 6 from the line. :dunno:

D'OH! Looked at the wrong boxscore, Cal and USC played in the Pac 10 tournament last night and that's what I checked. Just ignore me then. :redface:

Wow oh wow, that's amazing and has to be up there with the Harvard/Yale game student section stunt.

Funny stuff!

Hate to admit it, but that was one of the best pranks I've seen. I was watching the game and was wondering what the heck they were chanting.
