STEVE INSKEEP, host:

Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep, with congratulations to a high school student in Hilliard, Ohio.

Kyle Garcher pulled a prank. He put pieces of colored paper on the bleachers for the high school football game with a cross-town rival. Hundreds of Darby High fans were told that if they all held up the paper, it would spell Go Darby. Darby fans didn't realize when they held up the papers, they really spelled We Suck. Garcher was suspended, which gives him time to review this triumph on YouTube.

It's MORNING EDITION.
