Prank backfires

    Didn't see anything on this, so my apologies if this is a D_B.

    We've seen the video of that schmuck who thought he was going to win a prize for making a half-court shot blinfolded at a college basketball game. He missed, the crowd went nuts, he thought he had won, then realized it was a prank.

    Well, students at Olathe Northwest High School in Olathe, Kan., decided to play the same trick on a teacher, former Kansas Jayhawk Joel Branstrom, with a promise for four Final Four tickets for making a blind folded, half-court shot.

    Problem was? He made the fucking shot.

    Branstrom is cool though, saying he sensed a prank.

    Here's the video, though the dipshit on the stilts nearly blows it by standing right between the camera and the basket ...

    I'm guessing he'll get his Final Four tickets, one way or another. ESPN, CBS or some corporate sponsor will step up and make sure he's there ...

    If he's a member of the NABC, he would get tickets (or the opportunity to buy them) anyway, wouldn't he?
