Love and basketball
This is sweet, a trick played on a USC basketball player by the opposing fans.

Reminds me of this one time in [band camp?] college, my buddies and I were at a women's basketball game, and one of my friends (let's call him "Mark" because that's his name) made the mistake of saying one of the opposing players was cute (let's call her "Sharon" because I don't remember).

So we moved to the front row and chanted her name every time she got the ball. The poor girl had to have no idea why we were picking on her. At some point when she was sitting on the bench, we yelled her name in unison, which got her attention (small school, small gym), and we immediately pointed at Mark and yelled, "Meet Mark". I think Mark literally died at this point. I remember Sharon just had a giant WTF look on her face. At half time we got a big piece of poster board, wrote Mark's phone number on it, and waved it at here the entire 2nd half.

Ah, priceless. Sadly, she never called.
