Nittany Lions.

My mother gave my brother a hoodie sweatshirt for Xmas that she bought from TJMaxx or Marshall's that had the logo of Penn State on it - the Nittany Lions. I asked my brother if I could have the sweatshirt because he's too hip for sweatshirts and I needed one and I wore it to work today.

I was asking the only other person in the office a patent question, when he looked at me and said, "Penn State is going to get waxed tonight". Since I have no affiliation with Penn State and I don't follow sports, I answered "huh"? and he pointed at my sweatshirt. And then I had to explain that my mom bought it for Xmas from TJMaxx because it was a NIKE sweatshirt and nothing to do with the Nittany Lions.

On the way home from work, I spend a millisecond wondering what sport the Nittany Lions were going to lose at tonight. I decided it was basketball.

Turns out they lost the Rose Bowl tonight. (Yes! I know that the Rose Bowl is football!) I have no idea what is going on in the world.
