Wow, that's dedication

A Red Sox fan named Joe Vitelli from Westborough, Mass., has won the "How Low Did You Go to Catch the Big Game Contest" and a five-day trip to the Pro Bowl in Hawaii. Vitelli faked a broken leg to avoid his girlfriend's sorority formal last fall so he could watch Game 7 of the ALCS between the Red Sox and Yankees. Vitelli kept up the charade for six weeks -- wearing a fake cast, attending fake doctor's appointments and using a wheelchair -- before he was caught walking. Here's betting that Vitelli attended this year's Red Sox victory party stag.

See, if I had been the girl in this situation, I probably would have skipped the sorority formal myself (or actually, not been in a sorority in the first place, but that's not really the point). But from the guy's point of view, that's a pretty assy thing to do. It's not like he had actual tickets to the game or anything, because then I'm sure we could all see where he was coming from, right?

What's a sore or a tea got to do with it? Ooh, tea sounds nice...

Damn straight about sororities. Never been a fan: so glad I went to a non-Greek undergrad school. I never did see the appeal.

i concur whole-heartedly. i would never have been in a sorority, either. but if i were, i would've made my *own* excuses to go watch the game. he needs a new GF, stat.

am i the only girl that thinks it's kinda cute that he went to all that trouble just to lie to her?

of course i would be. that's looney tunes! who *does* that???

and because he's too much of an idiot to tell his GF the truth, he now gets a trip to hawaii??? i hope she dumped him after she found out so now she has to suffer and *not* go to hawaii with him.

obviously, i'm a hater today.
