JOHN BROWN U.'S BIG MESS: ESPN covers it in depth.
Who knew? John Brown University
students celebrate the first basket of the basketball season by unleashing a torrent o
f toilet paper
on the court. It takes several minutes to clean up. The visiting team gets a couple of technical foul shots.
ESPN reports in depth on the tradition, with photographs galore, including one student with a toilet paper roll costume who makes it clear he does have some clothes on underneath that roll.
The tradition is 35 years old. It has a corporate sponsor. Charmin. Thanks to Cato for the headsup.
