Here's one more reason Ohio State fans can hate their Michigan counterparts: Victoria's Secret (a Columbus, Ohio, based company) is coming out with logoed sweat pants, tank tops and panties for Michigan and other schools, but not Ohio State. OSU fans, blame Leslie H. Wexner (who is both the leader of Limited Brands and a member of OSU's board of trustees and feared a conflict of interest) for the fact that you won't be able to watch Victoria's Secret's sexy models sporting your school's logo.

My Kid is an Honor Roll Student
According to a recent study, the more we personalize our cars, the more strongly we consider them "our space," and the more likely we are to show aggression when we feel that space is violated. Which means the people who put those peaceful yellow anti-war ribbons or "Honor Roll" bumper stickers on their cars are just as likely to snap as those who slap on "Go F*** Yourself" stickers.
