While the bald eagle is now a national treasure, that hasn’t always been the case. Even after it was selected as the national bird in 1782, and after it started appearing on our government seals, many dissented, believing the bird of prey to be—according to Benjamin Franklin—“a bird of bad moral character” for its opportunistic nature. Farmers agreed, finding our foremost national emblem of freedom a nuisance responsible for destroying crop. With farmers hunting the bald eagle fiercely, numbers took a nosedive, and by the 1940s the bird was so rare it was hurried onto the endangered list. Now, after years of conservation, our wide-winged, regal ambassador is back to thriving.
You know it as the highlight of fall: The Game. The rest of the nation knows it as the greatest rivalry in football. And the 2015 edition of the epic Ohio State-*ichigan tradition, the 112th contest between the two, didn’t disappoint.
Led by head coach Urban Meyer, the Buckeyes dismantled the Wolverines 42-13 behind 369 rushing yards and 113 passing yards. The win finished an 11-1 regular season for the Buckeyes and marked the first time since 1934 when Francis Schmidt took the reigns of the program—the coach responsible for the Gold Pants tradition—that a new coach has gone undefeated in his first four games against That Team Up North. Here’s to your aversion to the letter M, colors Maize and Blue and anything having to do with That Team Up North. Suit up in a tee that goes great with Gold Pants. O-H!

Whether you see a, “man-child crying out for love, an innocent orphan in the postmodern world, a parasite, or a loathsome, offensive brute,” one thing’s for sure, you can’t look away. Modeled on a former neighbor of “Seinfeld” co-creator Larry David, the eccentric Cosmo Kramer burst through Jerry’s door and right into television history as the hapless man of a million ideas, thanks entirely to comedian Michael Richards. Pay homage to the nuttiest character on the sitcom that redefined the genre with a tee rocking “The Kramer” portrait from season three’s episode “The Letter.”
