1. Michael Jordan's NBA Executive Prank
Jordan the basketball player was not only regarded as his sport's greatest players, but also as one of its great minds. So it was assumed he would make a great team executive. Ha! That's where Michael Jordan the prankster stepped in.
First with the Wizards he drafted Kwame Brown No. 1 overall and made hilariously bad trades. Then he expanded his prank to Charlotte where he picked Adam Morrison and built a team that set an NBA record for the lowest winning percentage in history. Add all that to his Hitler mustache and ripped '90s jeans and Jordan the prankster is just as great as Jordan the basketball player!

So cruel. Yet so hilarious.
News Reports: Fans of Teams Eliminated in NCAA Tournament Saying They Really Only Care About College Football
"Yeah, I know it looked like I was upset because there were tears in my eyes or whatever, but I could honestly give a crap about basketball," said one Ohio State fan after the Buckeyes were upset by Wichita State in the Elite Eight. "Basketball just is something to watch between football seasons. I honestly could care less. We'd kill Wichita State at football and they know it. That's all that matters."
This same fan reportedly said during the college football season, in which Ohio State wasn't bowl eligible, that he didn't care about that "because Ohio State basketball is going to win it all this season."
A Miami fan sounded similar following the Hurricanes' elimination in the Sweet 16.
"Oh, please. I don't care. I could give a crap," the fan said after smashing a glass coffee table and telling police who came to the door over reports of a disturbance that everything was fine. "I was just along for the ride. I care much more about spring football than stupid basketball."
