August is here, and you know what that means its time to put away those salty swimsuits, snag a friend's used textbooks and go back to school. We know youre using this as an excuse to buy more clothes, so were going to dose you with a heaping helping of school spirit.
Have you given a thought to what youre going to wear on game day? Sure, those contrasting colors make a great keg decoration when youre in a handstand on top of it, but the fit of that polo shirt is just atrocious. Your school store only had five different styles in stock, so you had to pick the least of all evils.
Who will save you from the pitfalls of sub-par team branding? How will you be able to look good and fit in with that drunken group of banshees next to you in the stands?
