13 Ways Not To Display Pride For Your Favorite Collegiate Team

We just can't take it anymore

Posted on

1. Your team pride on a DIY project

Cool you have Pinterest. So do I. Stop cutting up your uncles XXXXXL tshirts and turning them into a dress tied with the ribbon from your Christmas Wreath.

2. Your team pride on your braces and/or mouth guard.

Don't show me your nasty retainer because it is green and you love showing off your pride for Michigan State. This is the grossest idea in the history of the world. I don't care if you're a kid or an adult. Keep it in your mouth. You can show pride for your school elsewhere.

3. Your team pride on your nails.

One plain single color, ok. I can deal. I can even handle getting wild and crazy with using a separate solid color as an accent nail. After that, #icant.

5. Your team pride vomited all over your vehicle

Want to show your team's pride on your car? Grab a sticker (but please God not the sticker above). I also recommend car flags, they can be quite festive when used sparingly. But this? No.

7. Your team pride double, triple and quadruple lettered

Pick one logoed item. Just one. I know it can be so hard *cough* Kentucky fans *cough* but if you have your team's logo on your shirt, maybe you don't need it on your shoes, socks, shorts, breakaway pants covering up the shorts, sweatshirt, jacket, hat, sweatband, wristband, headband.... etc.

10. Your team pride on another pattern- i.e. chevron, glitter, burlap, tulle

Someone explain why we need to girly up something as simple and powerful as a team's logo? Can't we just all agree to support the team, as is? What if someone took your blog logo, which I'm sure you put a lot of time and effort into creating, and threw a bunch of glitter, chevron, burlap and tulle all around it because they thought it just wasn't pretty enough on its own? How would you feel? Sad. Nothing screams DON'T EFF WITH US, WE ARE UNSTOPPABLE like polka dots and burlap.

11. Your team pride on overalls

Someone please make this stop. I have been seeing these wretched overalls on PRETTY, FASHIONABLE sorority girls since the first day I stepped foot into Neyland Stadium as a student, and it hasn't stopped 8 years later. You should know better.

13. Your team pride whittled with a crochet needle

You can crochet, what a skill. I bet your husband is thrilled to put on his new football beanie. Thrilled. Does this come in baseball?

What did I miss? What public displays of collegiate affection do you want to just stop?
