Throwing Smoke Flashback - High School Football Prank

Kyle Garchar, a senior at Hilliard Davidson High School in suburban Columbus, who tricked football fans from a crosstown rival into holding up signs that together spelled out, "We Suck," was suspended and banned temporarily from extracurricular activities for the prank, according to the school's principal.

Dude spent 20 hours over three days plotting the trick, which was captured on video and is shown above. He said he was inspired by a similar prank pulled by Yale students in 2004, when Harvard fans were duped into holding up cards with the same message. Davidson Principal John Bandow had told students that he expected them to show sportsmanship at the game, which Darby won 21-10.

Where has the sense of humour gone on this continent? It isn't like the signs contained bad language. Maybe a relative of Roger Goodell is in charge of this high school league.
