Louisville fans get free pizza
LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- Papa John's founder John Schnatter is promising a free pizza to every fan who saw him sink a shot from midcourt at a Louisville basketball game.
He banked one in after a few tries at halftime of the Oral Roberts-Louisville game last week.
Video posted by the company on YouTube shows Schnatter celebrating wildly after hitting the long shot in Freedom Hall.
The company estimates that if all 18,868 fans claim the free large one-topping pizza, it will add up to a $174,000 giveaway.
Papa John's says the free pizza offer is good through Dec. 27. Fans must call the store, order carryout and surrender their game ticket when they pick up the pizza.
