For all you lords and ladies in the Greater Pittsburgh Area, Renaissance Faire season is upon us. So if you enjoy 16th centuryish fun, games, and merrymaking, remember that it’s open only during weekends in September and Labor Day. Nevertheless, I did a Renaissance Festival post last year around this time which may not have gotten a lot of views, but since the Greater Pittsburgh Renaissance Festival is near my house, I thought I can do another edition for this year. After all, whenever you go to any of these events, you’re bound to see a lot of people in costumes. Are these historically accurate? Hell, no. But then again, most Renaissance fairs aren’t supposed to be educational, anyway. Besides, if you were in  a real Renaissance European town, it would probably not be a very enchanting experience. For one, you’d have a very hard time keeping your clothes clean since the streets would be covered in horse shit. Second, you will not find anyone selling turkey legs because turkeys are North American birds and most of North American colonization would take place in the 17th century (though it’s a different story if we’re talking about the Spanish in the southern US and anywhere below that). Third, sanitation was horrible with people pissing and throwing their shit out windows, animals doing their business in the street, and lack of regular bathing. Fourth, since countries were ruled by authoritarian monarchies and princedoms, you could forget about the upper classes believing in free speech, freedom to worship (save in France within the last decades of the 16th century), or anything relating to social justice because they just didn’t give a shit. If you live in Spain, you might have to deal with the Spanish Inquisition and ruthless Catholic and expansionist monarchs. If you live in Italy, then you might have to worry more about noble families fighting with each other and using the Catholic Church as an avenue for social advancement while not giving a damn about priestly duties (until the Catholic Counter-Reformation started cracking down on this). If you live in Eastern Europe, then you’ll have to deal with either the Ottoman Empire or Russia at the time of Ivan the Terrible. Neither of which are good. And if you live in Northern Europe, then you’re in the middle of the Reformation which means you better conform to what your ruler believes and do what they say or else expect your life to be a living hell. That or be executed. Maybe both. Okay, I could say the same about any country in Renaissance Europe, but this mainly goes for the northern parts since they’re most likely to be exposed to, adopt, and possibly be forced to convert to Protestantism. Sure some rulers may be more tolerant than others but don’t count on it. Also, if your country is mostly Protestant, there’s a strong chance that you’ll be accused, convicted, and later executed for witchcraft even though your crime was simply having someone in your life who really didn’t like you or being a convenient scapegoat. Yes, you might be completely innocent, but no one’s going to help you and expect to see those you know and love join in the hysteria since they don’t want to be next. Fifth, jousting and other tournament activities were dangerous which resulted in serious injuries (as in Henry VIII’s case which screwed him up bad) and possibly death (as with Catherine d’ Medici’s husband Henri II of France). Sixth, modern medicine didn’t exist at a time when contagious deadly diseases were rampant while surgery basically consisted of hacking off limbs. Seventh, aside from tournaments, blood sports, animal fights, and public executions were seen as fun for the whole family. Eighth, thanks to the Reformations as well as power hungry rulers, warfare and violence was rampant and very ugly. And finally, those beautiful outfits you see in Renaissance paintings weren’t very comfortable or great to wear in the summer.

So you might understand why Renaissance festivals might take liberties with history and present the era as the fun time it wasn’t. Nevertheless, you’re bound to find costumes pertaining to a mishmash from everything relating to Middle Ages, Renaissance, and the 17th century to high fairy tale fantasy. And here I give you another treasure trove of Renaissance Faire costumes for your reading pleasure.

  1. Sometimes a simple peasant dress is all you need.
Sure had she lived in the 16th century, it would be much dirtier and not in such bright colors. But she certainly looks lovely.

2. They may not be wicked enchanters, but their robes certainly are.

Not exactly what you'd see at Hogwarts. But they look so badass in their robes and staffs you don't even care.

3. This fairy knows how to dress in silver and white.

Yes, I know it's more fantasy than Renaissance. But you see people dressed like this at such festivals. Besides, a lot of Renaissance outfits are uncomfortable anyway.

4. Thanks to furry legs, this lady satyr doesn’t need a skirt.

Anyone familiar with Greek mythology should know that female satyrs were all male. Female satyrs were inventions by later poets.

5. When it comes to costume jewelry, sometimes there are no limits.

I think this woman is supposed to be a gypsy from what I could tell by her outfit. But I could be wrong. At least she has one of those perfumers even if it's just for show.

6. Sometimes in a woman’s dressed, layered skirts are necessary.

Yes, women did wear multiple skirts in those days, particularly the wealthy. Still, while the skirts are nice, I'm not sure about the sleeves.

7. Anyone familiar with Renaissance history should be able to recognize good ol’ Henry VIII.

You know the English Tudor king who was married 6 times, beheaded 2 wives and a lot of his friends, broke with the Catholic Church, and later got very fat towards the end of his life. Yes, that's the ruthless and colorful Henry VIII.

9. A medieval dress should always come with a matching cape of the same color.

Often it wouldn't in the Middle Ages, because even the nobles had a very limited wardrobe. Seriously, clothes were expensive at that time.

10. Now that seems like a strange looking wench.

Yes, one of these guys is in a dress and most likely because he has a strange sense of humor. But please don't judge him.

11. A woman should always be able to enjoy a good brew in all her finery.

12. When it comes to Renaissance costume, rich ladies always wore the big skirts.

But at the Renaissance Festival these can be worn by almost anyone and can be adjusted for comfort. Real rich Renaissance ladies didn't have such luxuries.

15. Never thought I’d catch sight of a peacock fairy.

Love how she has her green and blue costume coordinate with the peacock feathers she uses as wings. Very ingenious of her.

16. A bishop always has the right of way at this festival.

I'm sure he's not a clergyman of any kind in real life. But he does have a cool hat and lavish robes to make a presence.

17. In this outfit the skirt just had to match the parasol.

18. A belly dancer always can be pointed out by her jangles and midriff.

She even has a green dress and is holding a leaf that seems to be changing color. Guess fall must be around the corner.

24. A pirate couple always has to have matching pirate hats.

Yet, the lass could wear a short skirt if she wants to. Because these events aren't meant to conform to historical accuracy anyway. And his outfit more or less belongs in the late 17th century.

29. Guess these travelers are out for the hunt.

Note that their guns are flintlock muskets which are single shot, take long to reload, and aren't very great in speed and accuracy. On the other hand, they guys are wearing nice pants.

30. A little princess always has to carry a large scepter.

It also has to match her outfit as well. And as far as this girl's concern, princess is only a stepping stone to becoming queen.

Yes, Queen Lizzy loved her pearl jewelry and ruffles. Because she had a lot of portraits depicting her like this. And yes, she used white makeup, which probably contained lead.

33. Is that the Joker and Harley Quinn? Wonder what they’re doing here.

Yes, it's them. And they're dressed in period costume to show. Though they're still easy to pick out of a crowd since they're Batman villains.

34. How about a pint with this jester?

Jesters often entertained with their songs, music, storytelling, acrobatics, juggling, magic, and comedy. However, while they were popular in the Renaissance, the tradition later declined in the 17th century.

Or just have people dressed up as demons in their own incarnation. This one is mostly dressed in red with fur trimming on his outfit.

37. For a second, I thought this man came all the way from Sherwood Forest.

Yes, he does seem to be a member of the Merry Men with his ragged archer costume and a longbow. But unlike what you see in the Robin Hood stories, medieval outlaws mostly stole for themselves. And they could be quite violent, too.

40. For men, the puffy shirt always has to match the pantaloons.

Only in the 16th and 17th century could a man get away with lace, puffy pants, puffy sleeves, and tights and look like a badass. Because being fancy was a mark of wealth and prestige.

44. For these pirates, colorful costumes sure make them stand out.

Yes, they may wear flashy outfits and make Golden Age piracy look cool. But in reality, living on a pirate ship was anything but a picnic.

54. Even these fair ladies have to obey the crossing guard in order to cross the street.

Kind of find this image pretty funny. Of course, these women have it easy compared to real Renaissance women. Because they'd have to cross dirt roads with shit all over them.

77. Guess you have to have a different color dress to join these girls in their singing group.

Still, I like how they're wearing the same kind of dress as well as garlands on their heads. Really seems to bring out a good effect here.

The Quacky World of Rubber Duckies

rubber-ducky

As far as bath toys go, there is none that is as iconic or as popular as the rubber duck. I mean who doesn’t remember this stylized adorable yellow duck with its hollow body and flat base? Sometimes it even squeaks. Ironically, though rubber duckies have only become extremely popular in recent years, its history actually pre-dates that of the Teddy Bear. The first rubber ducks were made in the late 19th century by hard rubber vulcanized by Charles Goodyear’s process. However, unlike their modern counterparts, the first rubber ducks were solid and not capable of floating. In fact, the original rubber ducks were used as chew toys. The modern rubber duck would by created by a sculptor named Peter Ganine in 1940. He would later patent it and reproduce it as the floating bath toy we all know and love. Over 50,000 of these would be sold which was enough to gain a following when Jim Henson popularized it in 1969, performing “Rubber Duckie” as Ernie on Sesame Street. We all know that Ernie was paying homage to his favorite toy which he’d talk to and carry around everywhere. The rest is history. Today there are duck races as well as plenty of novelty rubber ducks to choose from besides the ubiquitous yellow one. I mean there are people around who collect these things. And on this post, I’ll show you a treasure trove of the kinds of rubber duckies you’ll see thanks to Pinterest and Google Images. So for your reading pleasure, I give you a glimpse into the great wide bath time world of rubber ducks. And believe me, it’s quacky.

  1. Skateboard duck likes to do a few tricks.
However, he must be totally quackers to ride his skateboard without wearing a helmet. Or anything to cover his joints.

Not Licensed By the NCAA College Athletic Craft Projects

CFBMapIII

So I’m down with fan costumes and merchandise. Now it’s on to college sport craft projects. You might’ve noticed that unlike the NFL craft post, I didn’t include a picture of myself. Mostly because I don’t have any college sport craft projects so I decided to go with the college football fan map instead. I figured since college football season is soon to begin next week. And if I decide to go with a craft post during March Madness, I’ll use a basketball one. Anyway, you may not think that sports and crafts go together if you haven’t been on Pinterest or Etsy. Yet, even though more men like sports and women do crafts, understand that there are plenty of female sports fans out there as well a guys who do crafts. Then there are college athletes like famed Penn State football player Rosie Grier who later played for the LA Rams and took up needlepoint as a hobby. If you look on Pinterest, you’ll find a lot more sports team crafts on there than you can imagine. However, when it came to looking for craft projects in college sports, it’s a bit tricky. Along with the merchandise, I had to google names of several different colleges to find them. Because if you just type anything relating to college sports crafts, you’ll just end up finding stuff mostly from Alabama and LSU trust me. So for your reading pleasure, I give you a treasure trove of the unique craft projects of college sports. Most of the craft projects featured will be representative of Division I teams, naturally.

NCAA College Athlete Exploiting Merchandise

Snapshot_20160826_4

Here am I in my University of Florida Gator snuggie I received from an uncle of mine who lives in Panama City, Florida. Sure it’s not appropriate for summer weather. So I only wore it for the photo. Then again, considering that the University of Florida doesn’t have a lot of cold weather, this Gator snuggie is perfect for my opening post picture.

As I said before, college sports is a huge business in the United States despite that practically all college athletes don’t get paid in any tangible currency. Sure they’re supposed to receive an education from the school. But plenty barely have any time for that, particularly if they’re Division I. Nevertheless, since college sports are incredibly popular, it should surprise nobody that you’ll find a lot of college sports crap if you look hard enough. Yes, I know that colleges make money from ticket sales, tuition payments, contributions, and the like. But as long as there are people willing to buy overpriced crap, they might as well reap in the benefits. Besides, in college sports, it’s usually the brand that’s more important than the players since they’re only in the programs for up to 4 years before graduation anyway. Hell, some don’t even graduate if they become eligible for the pros (despite that this doesn’t happen very often. And when it does, there’s a strong chance they may not be nearly the star player they once were in their college days. Just ask Heisman winner Tim Tebow). Nevertheless, I can go along with showing you all the jerseys and other items they sell. But you’d probably be bored with it. So instead, I’ll show you items that might make you scratch your head since few would even consider buying something like that at all. Most of these items are from Division I schools naturally.

  1. Take your little one to the big game with this purple and gold LSU stroller.
Not sure about you. But I don't think any parent should take young children to a Division I college game. It's not very kid friendly environment and they'd probably be whiny the whole time.

2. This Penn State bar counter is perfect for tailgating at Happy Valley.

That is, if you have a pickup to carry it in and are willing to spend a large amount of money on outdoor furniture. Other than that, it's not worth it.

3. This Oregon hoodie allows you to carry a beer bottle in your pocket.

However, if you see someone with a hoodie like this on them as well as a beer bottle in them, they may have a problem. This is especially if they have beers in both hands, too.

4. Sing the blues when your team loses with this WVU acoustic guitar.

Because singing annoying country music is a much better way to deal with your emotions than setting a couch on fire. At least it won't lead to calling the fire department.

5. No LSU fan’s home is complete without a Tiger toilet seat.

This is actually a vintage item and may not be available. But it's made from solid wood and intricately carved.

7. Have your baby show Wildcat pride on March Madness with this University of Kentucky blinky.

For the love of God, these overpriced pacifiers aren't worth your money. Seriously, why do they even exist? Just get a regular one for your baby. It's cheaper.

8. Stomp in support for your Nittany Lions with these Penn State cowboy boots.

I can understand if these are sold in the western colleges, especially if they have a western themed mascot. But Penn State? State College was never in cowboy country!

9. This chic University of Kentucky sequin purse is Wildcat approved.

15. Put your Wildcats on your toast with this University of Kentucky branding toaster.

Yeah, I know I showed you similar stuff in my NFL merch post. But these colleges tend to sell similar products. And a lot of them tend to be ridiculous as well.

16. Propose to your Buckeye girlfriend with this Ohio State engagement ring.

Then again, guys, on second thought, don't. Seriously, just because you and your girlfriend are friends of Ohio State, doesn't mean you should. Because it might backfire.

17. Keep your drink at your side when watching the Fightin’ Irish with this Notre Dame hip flask.

And yet, another example of Notre Dame playing to offensive Irish stereotypes. Because what is anyone going to keep in a hip flask? Water? Oh, hell no.

It’s a pin that has an on going message saying, “Go Nittany Lions!” Yet, it must be very expensive if you ask me.

22. Nothing makes a night worth remembering than a bonfire in a Texas Longhorn fire pit.

23. Why carry your stadium seat and cooler separately, when this USC cooler knapsack lets you do both in one piece?

Now that's very convenient. However, you'll probably save more money buy a plain one instead. Just saying.

Pictured are Alabama, LSU, and Texas A&M. Of course, regular paper towels do the job just fine, are probably cheaper, and you can get them anywhere.

29. You’re always ready for tailgating with this USC picnic set.

For nothing makes you more ready for college football than showing up at the tailgate party with a wicker picnic basket. Also, does this one include dishes and utensils for more than one person? Because it doesn't seem like it.

30. Now you can make your home smell like a lucky shamrock with this Notre Dame scented candle.

Yes, Yankee Candle really does sell these. I didn't make this up. They have ones for other teams, too. Yet, the Notre Dame one is among the few that make sense.

32. Make your Iowa University tailgating complete with this Hawkeye portable grill.

39. Step out in style in these LSU jeweled high-heeled shoes.

I don't know about you. But I'd rather attend a college game in more comfortable footwear. High heels are for more high end occasions like parties.

Yes, these team caskets do exist. Yes, I know it's ridiculous and think a regular one is cheaper. But somehow there's a demand.

44. Enjoy the great stadium popcorn taste at game day with your very own University of Kentucky popcorn maker.

Because why go through the trouble with the microwavable stuff when you can get this? Then again, there are plenty of ways to make popcorn without buying expensive stuff like this.

45. Now you can fish with Mountaineer pride if you have this WVU fishing lure.

Not sure if the fish would go for a WVU fishing lure. And in some West Virginia rivers, I'm not sure if you'll find fish in there at all.

46. Keep your food nice and cool with your very own Ohio State refrigerator.

College team mini fridges are one thing. But a standard fridge? I don't think anyone's buying it. Besides, you can easily use different color tape to obtain the look anyway.

47. This Christmas, make sure your kids are well behaved with this University of Kentucky Elf on the Shelf.

And I thought that the regular Elf on the Shelf was creepy that I devoted blog posts making fun of it. Yeah, this is insane.

48. Get your drinks during tailgating with this LSU R2-D2 drink server.

To be fair, this R2-D2 was painted with LSU colors. Yet, it's pretty ridiculous just the same, especially if it's near younger college students.

49. Keep yourself warm at Happy Valley with these Penn State heavy duty Nike gloves.

50. Make bath time so much fun with this Nittany Lion duck from Penn State.

Okay, this is freaky. I mean it seems to be a cross between a rubber duck and and a mountain lion. Then again, the head reminds me more of a bear.

51. Keep your wine at hand with this Iowa Hawkeyes high heeled wine holder.

I don't understand why such wine holders even exist. I mean even regular ones seem tackier, especially with encrusted gems.

52. Step out at any time of the year in this Syracuse adjustable dress.

Well, at least this one doesn't have the Orange mascot on it. Yet, how is this 4 dresses in one? What it's secret?

53. Keep your hair nice and neat with your very own Florida Gators straightener.

54. Come to the game in style with a pair of University of Tennessee sunglasses.

By the way, these are for women since they have sparkly rhinestones encrusted on them. I know it's crazy, right?

56. These NCAA candle warmers are just what everyone needs.

I have no idea what these actually do besides possibly warming a candle. But isn't that what a flame is supposed to do?

57. Nothing looks better on a cake in West Virginia than this WVU burning couch candle.

Now the age old WVU victory celebration is now a candle. And there's plenty of wax to go around.

Now the age old WVU victory celebration of vandalism is now a candle. And there’s plenty of wax to go around.

58. Nothing looks better in a Florida State Seminole fan’s cabinet than this commemorative FSU decanter set.

Those who know about American history may remember that many Native Americans didn't take well to alcoholic beverages. So kind of makes this gift kind of ironic.

59. This Penn State collectible gas station shelf provides sufficient storage space.

64. At Michigan State, Juke ‘Em is a football card game.

Not sure how this is played or whether it's present on college campuses. But the graphics remind me of band aid packaging.

65. No Penn State bathroom should be complete without a Nittany Lion shower curtain.

Then again, in light of the Jerry Sandusky scandal, I'm not sure if these should be on the market. Of course, perhaps I should've kept my mouth shut on that. But I couldn't resist.

Then again, in light of the Jerry Sandusky scandal, I’m not sure if these should be on the market and I’ll just leave you at that. Of course, perhaps I should’ve kept my mouth shut on that. But I couldn’t resist. Now I feel terrible.

66. This Fightin’ Irish bar sign will certainly light up a room.

67. Now you can watch your Mountaineers on your very own WVU couch.

Yes, watch the Mountaineers on this WVU sofa. And when it gets old and starts falling apart, you can give it a proper send off the next time they win.

68. Tailgating at Wisconsin University has never been so much fun than with this football helmet drink dispenser.

69. Your little ones feel snug and warm in these Florida Gator booties.

Because those 70 degree winters can really cause a freeze. Still, its unlikely they'll ever be used on the Florida University campus.

70. Now your pooch can show support for the Tar Heels with this North Carolina cheerleading outfit.

72. Make your place more interesting with this FSU hat and face.

Is it just me, or do I find this utterly creepy. I mean it doesn't have a head for God's sake. Don't know why they thought it was a good idea.

75. Keep your dog safe in warm in these fleece Michigan Wolverine pajamas.

76. Keep your kid safe in the car with this Notre Dame Fightin’ Irish car seat.

Comes with its own cup holder, too. Also, a plain car seat like this one is probably cheaper, anyway.

77. Get in the Christmas spirit with these Michigan State Spartan candy canes on your tree.

I'm sure these are for decoration since they seem to have a place for string on them. Yet, they also look rather disgusting despite being green.

78. Have your little one snuggle up with their very own Dream Lite Otto the Orange from Syracuse.

Of course, your kid will be puzzled on why an upstate New York college has an orange as their mascot. But there are some things that you can't really explain.

80. Always know where the wind is blowing with your very own Ohio State weather vane.

College Sports Fans Dressed in School Spirit Attire

Snapshot_20160825_17

Since I went to Saint Vincent College, I decided to dress in my alma mater’s attire. Here I am with a Saint Vincent College football hat as well as my March of the Bearcats jacket, polo, and basketball T-shirt. Yes, it’s a Division III school, but it’s in the spirit of the article. After all, this is about school spirit anyway.

In late August, it’s not unusual to see college kids moving into their dorms on campus with freshman doing so for the first time. However, it’s very likely that the college athletes have already moved back on campus and are preparing for another season, particularly football players. And if they’re on a Division I team, then they’re probably under a lot of pressure to do their best that some of them may not have the time to do any actual schoolwork. Let’s just say going to a Division I school on a full athletic scholarship isn’t nearly what it’s cracked up to be. And that’s nearly getting into how the NCAA profits from these kids tremendously despite that they don’t even pay them a dime. Anyway, in America, college sports are big business and sometimes it’s not unusual for people to feel more loyalty to their college teams than their pro teams. It may be because they went to the school themselves like my dad with Slippery Rock or me with Saint Vincent. Sometimes it might be because the college is within a closer geographic proximity which I think is the case with many WVU and Crimson Tide fans since West Virginia and Alabama don’t have any Big 4 pro sports teams within their state. Not to mention, there are more college teams than pro teams. Yet, these colleges do have their fans and some of them can be outright crazy. And that’s where I come in to show you some of the craziest college fans decked in their ridiculous game day finest so you can see for yourself. Because although I may not be a big sports fan, I do know that college sports are very popular that people would go to these ridiculous lengths to support their team. So for your college reading pleasure, I give you a treasure trove of wacky college sports fans to enjoy. Most of them will be from Division I schools, naturally.

  1. Seems like Dumbledore or Gandalf the White made a presence at Happy Valley.
I think he was wearing this during a white out PSU game. But the wizard beard and body paint is just the same.

2. This South Florida woman is totally pumped to see her beloved Bulls.

And she has a horn hat as well as painted her whole body to prove it. Okay, she's wearing a camisole, but still. This is over the top.

3. At the University of Michigan, all this guy needs is body paint, a helmet, and shoulder pads to support his Wolverines.

Yes, this guy is in full regalia as we know it. Still, he doesn't have a nice message for Ohio State at any rate.

4. Introducing  the Pitt Penguin.

Okay, he's not a player for the NHL Pittsburgh Penguins. He's just a fan of the Pitt Panthers in a penguin suit. Yes, I know it looks ridiculous.

5. These Happy Valley bunnies have come out on a winter’s day to support their Nittnay Lions.

6. The biggest WVU fans always go with their full body paint on.

WVU fans are a particular lot in the college landscape. The Mountaineer football team has a very passionate fanbase. It's also said that a lot of fans have taken up the practice of couch burning.

7. This Montana fan has got his war paint on.

And he seems to have rather ornate shoulder pads to match. Like how he has the hand print on his face.

8. Here we have a Florida State Seminole fan in full war bonnet attire with a Northern Illinois husky admirer.

Just for the record, I don't condone the Seminole wearing the war bonnet and fully understand that it's highly offensive to Native Americans. However, since this is a college fan post, his ridiculous war bonnet attire is so over the top that I just couldn't resist leaving it out.

9. A fan from the University of Kansas can’t be fully dressed without a feather headdress.

Kansas U's mascot is the Jayhawk. And yes, this is fairly offensive to Native Americans but equally outrageous. Yet, I think it's golden.

11. To this guy from the University of New Hampshire, the Wildcats are always #1 in hockey.

12. At Louisiana State, a mother always tries to foster her love for the Tigers to her daughter.

However, I'm not sure going to an LSU game topless in body paint is a good idea. Because body paint is no substitute for a shirt in my opinion.

13. At the University of South Carolina, this man dons his chicken hat with pride.

South Carolina's mascot is the game cock which is a chicken once used in the now illegal practice of cockfighting. Yes, you read that right. Don't ask me, that's how they call it.

14. This Arkansas fan is a true hog’s head in the making.

The University of Arkansas's mascot is a razorback which is an aggressive wild pig. And the rap pigs get, razorbacks can be downright nasty.

16. These University of Cincinnati fans are decked with all the bells and whistles.

Well, they have red and black shoulder pads along with crazy hats. But they'll do for this fan post. Also, Cinci's mascot is a bearcat which isn't a fierce creature by any stretch.

17. This Central Florida fan shows his pride for the Knights by painting himself in gold.

Like the navy blue touches, blue wig, and pom poms. This guy has great talent. Must be a repressed art major.

18. Have you ever met a Florida Gator head?

Now this is the kind of Florida Gator we all should be rooting for. And I favor this one over the obnoxious Tim Tebow any day of the week. Love it.

19. At Mississippi State University, someone seems to take “Respect the Bell” to a whole new level.

He also tends to take "more cowbell" to a whole new level as well. Since he's dressed like one. Wonder how he sits and goes to the bathroom.

22. On game day, LSU Tiger fans go all out.

LSU fans tend to be a little crazier college sports fans than some of the other schools for some reason. But I like the purple kilt in this.

24. He may only wear a barrel but at the University of Wyoming, he’s having a barrel of fun.

Yes, there's a University of Wyoming and their team is the Cowboys. Yet, their color scheme is different from the NFL Dallas team. So there's nothing to worry about.

25. At the VCU basketball game, these Ram fans go with clown wigs and beads.

The "Save Shaka Smart" on their foam hands refers to the team's head coach at the time who led the Rams to a winning season as well as the NCAA Men's Final Four. However, he didn't stay for long and is now coaching for the University of Texas.

26. Hope you’re not scared by this Virginia Tech clown.

Then again, since he can induce nightmares, I think he might make a better VT mascot than the one they have now. Still pretty scary, though.

29. Who knew they crowdsurfed in the Navy?

Well, the military branch academies do compete in the NCAA Div. I athletics. But I'm not sure if they count as colleges. Nevertheless, love the blue hair.

Yes, I know they look like a couple of clowns in pajamas. But I've seen fans in more ridiculous outfits than that. You'll probably find this amusing though.

41. Didn’t know Dorothy, Thing 1, and Thing 2 were huge Boise State fans.

Odd, since I'd imagine Dorothy to support a college team in Kansas since she's from there. As for Thing 1 and Thing 2, I think they're both guys. But to each his own.

Live Breaking TV News Headlines Gone Awry

hD2918ADE

Whether it be your local news affiliates or the national and cable news shows, chances are that you might be familiar with them. And that you might be familiar with their use of captions through graphics to help you identify things as well ranging from story, location, or whoever’s being interviewed. Unlike the TV shows you watched which were taped and aired for an audience later, TV news is usually done live which leaves little room for mistakes. However, sometimes it doesn’t turn out that way. What I have to present to you are a series of news stills that contain their share of errors as well as crazy captions that go with them. I found these on sites thanks to Google as well as in places like Buzzfeed, Funny or Die, Fark, and others. Some of these captions may present a case of misindentification, spelling and grammar errors, redundant captions, and more. So for your reading pleasure I present to you stills of news captions gone wrong. Some of these might not be safe for work by the way.

  1. A big racked 5-point horse was killed today before being sent to a taxidermist and served as venison.
How did anyone think it's a horse? That's a deer. An antlered deer. Know the difference.

I don’t expect much from people who do these captions. But if they can’t distinguish between a horse and a deer, that’s a big problem for me. Seriously, it’s a deer. An antlered deer. Get a clue.

2. A violent sexual predator is on the loose.

Yeah, his name is Sparky who has been humping almost every other pooch in the neighborhood. Make sure your pets are spayed and neutered.

10. Today on Fox News: Is Lowering the Minimum Wage Better for Workers?

Before the days of the Internet and TV, there was mass media called newspapers which informed the public of the day’s current events. One of their ways to catch viewers’ attention to articles was through a nice bold headlines. Of course, headlines on the front page usually got the most attention and were usually about events of historical and worldly significance. Nevertheless, newspapers continue to exist today but their glory days are very much over in this age of social media. Now I can show you all the great headlines I’ve seen before. But you’ll probably be bored by them to tears. So I’ll give you headlines by people who aren’t very good at some basic aspects associated with their job. Because unlike people on Twitter, they have to worry about things like grammar and syntax when their lines are in 124 characters or less. And sometimes they don’t come out very well. So enjoy these eye catching headlines for your reading pleasure. Some of these might not be safe for work, by the way.
