If they suspended the kid who spelled out "We Suck" in the opposing team's cheering section, we can't imagine what they'll do to a North Carolina student who almost crashed a plane into his home football stadium on a dare.
Seriously, we love a good gag, but dude ... probably not the best idea.
A 17-year-old Hopewell High student was apparently acting on a dare when he did a fly-over prank at a Hopewell High football game Friday night, at one point dipping below the stadium lights. Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools officials said Sunday that the teen pilot and two teen passengers flew the length of the field three times around 8 p.m. The plane reportedly came within feet of a flag pole.
On the final pass, a pair of tennis shoes and a football dropped from the single-engine Cessna 172 into the end zone, officials said.
We can't believe they give 17-year-olds pilot licenses in the first place, frankly. We can't believe they let 'em drive, let alone fly planes. But now we're just being cranky: We'd give good money to hear the call from whatever high school student was broadcasting the game on local radio. We expect many voice cracks.
