Fake Priests Running Rampant in South Bend
Dude wasn’t quite running through the sidelines for a Jay Leno skit, but he might as well have been. In one of the better pranks I’ve seen in quite some time, right up there with the iron soccer ball, Brian Stouffer at FanHouse points out that a man sneaked onto the Notre Dame sidelines dressed as a fake priest. From the AP:
A man posted on the Internet a video showing how he sneaked into Notre Dame Stadium before the Georgia Tech game by posing as a Roman Catholic priest, prompting the university to re-emphasize its security procedures.
The six-minute video on the Web site YouTube showed the man posing by the team’s signature yellow sign reading “Play Like a Champion Today,” chatting with a television reporter and greeting the Fighting Irish as they ran onto the field to play Georgia Tech on Sept. 1. The video has since been removed.
As commenter GP John quipped, they defend their sidelines about as well as their end zones. Amen. Touchdown Jesus ain’t got nothing on this guy.
