Katelynn Johnson is a student at the University of Oregon. A week ago, you didn’t know her name. Back then, she was just another pretty face in the Ducks’ flock of attractive (in a Fembot sort of way, assuming you’re not an Oregon fan) cheerleaders.
Today, though, Johnson is famous.
You may have already heard her story, but in case you haven’t, here it is.
Last Saturday, the Oregon football team was in Tucson to take on the Arizona Wildcats. In a closely-contested battle with bowl implications for both teams, Oregon won on a touchdown in overtime before the proverbial ish hit the fan.
The Ducks, notorious for celebrating to an offensive degree, engaged in their usual postgame ritual that, naturally, pissed off the home crowd. Arizona fans began tossing items onto the field (not cool, no matter how upset you may be) and managed to strike Johnson square in the head with a water bottle. The 21-year-old senior passed out shortly thereafter and was later diagnosed with a concussion.
Now you may have mixed feelings on this whole event. Maybe you think it’s funny, maybe you’re irate, maybe disgraced, who knows. All I know is there is one hilarious thing we can take from all this, and it comes directly from Johnson herself.
You see, when Katelynn Johnson graduates in the spring, she plans to move to New York to become a part-time model and full-time nanny. Yes, folks. That’s an Oregon education at its finest.
