I wonder if these bad boys are flying off the shelves this week:

Not Penn State (source: UTB/PennBookstore)

If you’re looking for clarification, this shirt has been in existence for a long time.  It’s made by one of my alma maters, The University of Pennsylvania. UPenn and Penn State have been in a constant feud, with neither school enjoying being mistaken for the other.  Penn likes being seen as a smarty pants ivy league school full of prestige and Penn State would be embarrassed to have the football program that the Quakers field.  Hence the shirt for clarification.  It’s so that UPenn students don’t have to endure the following conversation (as did I):

Stranger: Where do you go to school?

Me:  Penn

Stranger:  Oh, great football team.

Me:  Nope.
