Today Is The 10th Anniversary Of The Greatest College Sports Prank Of All Time
Admirable for its simplicity, nearly perfect in its execution, the legendary "Harvard Pep Squad" prank of 2004 is possibly the greatest college sports prank of all time. That was the day, at the annual Harvard-Yale football game, that 22 Yale students went undercover and got nearly 3,000 Harvard students to hold up cards spelling "WE SUCK" in their own stands.
Not once, but twice.
In the video below, witness these thrilling moments:
* One Harvard fan questions the fake Harvard Pep Squad members: "You're not from Harvard, are you?"
* One older fan takes a card, and asks "These aren't going to spell out 'Yale Sucks', are they?"
* One Yale fan says: "This is actually happening. They're going to do it!"
The stunt was the brainchild of Yale junior Michael Kai and David Aulicino, and took more than a year to execute -- including a failed attempt in 2003. They say the stunt was conceived while a group of friends were "sitting around drinking beer" ... as all great deeds are.
