Ah, so Steven Spielberg has jokes, huh? Recently, Spielberg held a Q&A with the students of the University of Southern California when someone asked him to name his favorite disaster movie. With so many films to choose from, which one did Spielberg go with?
Steven Spielberg was at #USC today. He was asked his favorite disaster movie and said, ``The Washington State game.''— InsideUSC (@InsideUSC) September 26, 2013
Ouch. You see, on Sept. 7, USC lost in a heartbreaker at home against Washington St., 10-7. Immediately following the defeat, fans were calling for head coach Lane Kiffin's head. But, before you get all bent out of shape by Spielberg's joke, let us remind you that he applied twice to attend the University of Southern California School of Theater, Film and Television and was turned down both times. And while Spielberg did receive an honorary degree in 1994 and became a trustee of the university in 1996, maybe he is still harboring some ill will towards the Trojans. Hey, you never know.
And, you better believe Washington State president Elson Floyd wasn't going to pounce on an opportunity to get a little dig, if the opportunity presented itself.
